Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 8 July 2009

During the recent Grand Opening of the Four Points by Sheraton Kuching, the hotel managed to set a new record for the Tallest Cupcake Display in Malaysia, an attempt endorsed by The Malaysia Book of Records.

The record attempt was witnessed by the Prime Minister as well as Datuk Danny Ooi, Managing Director of The Malaysia Book of Records.

Spearheaded by Four Points Executive Chef, Liou Chong Yaw, the building of the cupcake display also raised funds for the annual UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge.

We wanted to set the record, but our attempt was more than that. Our culinary team also wanted to give back to the community and we have an ideal platform to do that through the Check Out For Children programme, said Chef Liou. We chose to use the cupcake as it is not only one of Four Points most recognizable brand icons, it is also a Feel Good Treat that promotes a feel good feeling.

The Four Points by Sheraton Kuching, the first Four Points hotel in South East Asia, is located 2 kilometres from the Kuching International Airport and just 15 minutes from the heart of the city.

All 421 rooms at the Four Points by Sheraton Kuching feature the Four Points by Sheraton Four Comfort Bed, 32-inch LCD televisions, large working desk, High Speed Internet Access, WiFi and a rainforest shower.

The hotel also has three Food and Beverage concepts, ten meeting spaces including a 1,456-square metre ballroom, 24-hour fitness centre, outdoor swimming pool and 24-hour business centre.

As an added service to guests, Four Points by Sheraton Kuching offers guests complimentary shuttle transfers between the hotel and the airport as well as to and from the citys commercial center.
