As close as it’s possible to be to the Petronas Towers and many of Kuala Lumpur’s top leisure attractions, the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur has one of the best locations in the city.
As you would expect of a large hotel right in the heart of a bustling metropolis, it’s busy here. That’s no surprise given that the address is very convenient for tourists and business travellers alike, being at the crossroads of the city’s business, commercial, retail and entertainment districts. You can’t miss it. In terms of landmarks as it’s set between the gardens of the Kuala Lumpur City Centre Park and the iconic, 88-storey Petronas Twin Towers.
There are 571 rooms and 21 suites, with either a park or city view, and some enjoy a close-up of the Petronas Towers. On floors 24 to 30 the Club Suites have a chic residential ambiance and feature a selection of contemporary artwork. Each also has a luxurious marble bathroom, a separate living room and access to the Club Lounge – the largest in the city – which offers fantastic panoramic views.
There are some good facilities at this hotel, including the free-form swimming pool, set among tropical flora and offering a pleasant place to escape the heat. Or visit the spa and make use of the steam, sauna and whirlpools before indulging in a treatment – there’s a couples’ spa suite if you want to share the experience. Classes in aerobics, yoga and zumba are a great way to supplement your fitness routine at the gym, as well as two tennis courts and an indoor golf simulator to help with your swing.
There are several dining venues in the hotel to cover most tastes, including Lai Po Heen, where the decor is inspired by the great ancestral homes of 19th-century Chinese tycoons and the cuisine is classic Cantonese speciality, seafood and dim sum. For Californian-Japanese flavours try Wasabi Bistro. In the evening, step it up a notch and head to the modern Sultan Lounge or to the MO Bar to while the night away with a cocktail or two.
