A Kl Renaissance

A new breed of luxury properties have recently opened in the Malaysian capital, boasting unbeatable locations, discreet yet personable service, and a slew of indulgences that cater to discerning travelers

Kuala Lumpur is not new to Singaporeans traveling for business or a short weekend getaway. Given its close proximity to the city-state (a mere 45-minute flight away), it is the obvious destination of choice for regional meetings or once a long weekend comes around. But with the recent introduction of these new luxury hotels in the heart of the city, you just might want to linger a little longer.

Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur

In December 2018, Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur, which is managed by Banyan Tree, officially opened its doors at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, adjacent to the shopping mall’s luxurious Couture Precinct extension. It proudly stands 13 floors above the popular mall and boasts easy accessibility to shopping hotspots, attractions and renowned landmarks.

Since the property is managed by Banyan Tree, which is known for its resorts and spas, expect nuances of tranquility and relaxation during your stay, even when you’re located right smack in the city center. The outdoor courtyard, which is on the same floor as the hotel lobby, is a great example of this — it is cleverly hidden within the hotel building, with further enclosure in the form of a towering water feature. Of course, there is also an award-winning Banyan Tree Spa here for those who prefer Asian-inspired treatments within an enclosed, peaceful location.
