Skip the long queues at the touristy eateries near the indoor theme park, we’ve got a better idea. At Hugo’s In The Sky, located at Best Western Premier Ion Delemen, feast on Mediterranean cuisine against a backdrop of stunning mountain ranges. Pair your gastronomical delights with a glass of the smoothest wine, and have a romantic date like no other. Between the orange hue of the setting sun and the flickering warm candleglow, it sounds like a Hollywood scene straight out of a romantic movie.

If you can’t get enough, check out Chopstix, the signature rooftop restaurant of Best Western Premier Ion Delemen. Serving up Asian-Oriental dishes, the restaurant also promises gorgeous sights that will have your eyes feasting as well!

Looking out the window, you’ll get unobstructed views of the mountains and cities that seamlessly meld with the horizon. In the restaurant, be entertained by the open-kitchen concept and watch as the masterchefs prepare your meal with finesse and confidence.

4. Spend (on) some quality time

They say money can’t buy you happiness, much less love. But we wouldn’t underestimate the power of a new Kate Spade handbag or a pair of Adidas Ultra Boosts… Yep, it’s time to hit the newly opened Genting Highland Premium Outlet Stores! Here you’ll find an amazing lineup of some of the biggest fashion and apparel brands in the world and will surely find that oh-so-elusive gift you’ve been meaning to get for your special one.

With the cooling climate of Genting and the same design features of premium outlets in San Francisco and Seattle, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that you are actually in the heart of Malaysia! Spice up your day out shopping by giving each other an hour to shop separately for that perfect gift and surprising your other half at the end of your impromptu gift exchange. It’ll certainly make for a refreshing and romantic twist to your shopping escapade!

5. Create memories for a lifetime

We’re talking about pictures, of course! What better way to immortalise your love than with a picture-perfect shot? But don’t just settle for any run-of-the-mill shot of the amusement park – how does a couple shot against a backdrop of quaint French cottages sound to you?

Stroll the streets hand in hand and remember to stop for photos along the way.
