Kuala Lumpur is an up-and-coming powerhouse, and the Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur is at its very centre. Officially launched late last year, it has all the luxury amenities expected of a high-end brand to satisfy leisure travellers looking for food and fun, but business travellers are equally catered for with its ample meeting space and, most of all, proximity to the city’s most prestigious office towers.
Situated in the Golden Triangle, Kuala Lumpur’s central business district, the hotel is part of the KLCC office and mall complex, which conveniently has its own LRT station. The iconic Petronas Towers are right next door. The beautiful KLCC Park, visible from most rooms, is a great place to unwind, while numerous shopping centres, street food areas and nightlife options are steps away.
Light is a theme throughout the hotel, and the floor-to-ceiling windows in the 209 guest rooms, some of which have 180-degree views, bring plenty of it inside. Neutral hues and metal fixtures and fittings give the spaces a modern, sleek aesthetic. Large desks offer the space for getting work done, or upgrade to a club room or a suite to access the executive club lounge.
There are six function rooms for meetings and events, but a more intimate option, if there are only a few of you, is the private dining room in ultra-glamorous Chinese restaurant Yun House. After hours, head to the hidden Bar Trigona (you’ll have to figure out which wall it’s behind), the pool with its underwater speakers or the spa, which offers massages using local herbal oils.
