Up there among some of my favourite stays from last year. I was in Malaysia late last year and twice thrice this year. I am smittened with the city and yearn to see more of this beautiful country. Known for its beaches and rain forests, sadly none of which were on the itinerary for the last few trips. You have seen me post about my visit to the Batu Caves, a run down on what to see and do in Kuala Lumpur as well as the views from Petronas Towers, and a culinary tour of KL's China Town. With all the city gems available to explore in Kuala Lumpur one needs to consider a comfort spot to lay your head. It doesn't get any better than Mandarin Oriental in the heart of the capital. Perfectly located, sits right next to Petronas Towers, KLCC shopping mall and many cool and trendy bars and restaurants within reach. It was definitely worth the splurge! Plus, we managed to snub a room with a view of the twin towers.
I share another installment of my stay at Mandarin Oriental a while back. The pool is amazing and looks out on to the city, food in the hotel restaurants is fantastic not to mention we also pigged out on our first evening having arrived early evening and too tired to go exploring it was the perfect time to try out the hotel's room service. Once it arrived they set it all up for you with a portable dining table and chairs you as to bring the restaurant to you!
The luxury 5-star hotel definitely didn't disappoint. Heavenly comfy bed with great views, close to tourist attractions, about 40 minutes drive to the airport, great customer service not to mention the choice of rooms and suites available; 571 rooms, 21 suites and 40 executive apartments. It's hard not to feel at home once you arrive. We booked our room via Booking.com.
