The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

It’s located slightly away from the city centre, but The Majestic more than makes up for that with charm, character and heritage value – after all, it’s right next to the old Mughal-style railway station, one of KL’s most iconic heritage sites.

The original Hotel Majestic dates back to the 1930s, when it was the most celebrated hotel of its era; with the expansion of the hotel, it’s now known as the Majestic Wing. The suites here come with butler service and feature an updated colonial-inspired decor. Meanwhile, the newly built Tower Wing is furnished with deluxe rooms and suites, decked out with all the refinements of contemporary interior design – think clean lines, cubic four-poster beds and glass bathrooms.

The Majestic Spa has a building of its own, with an art-nouveau-inspired interior reminiscent of famous architect-designer-artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s famous Willow Tearooms of Scotland. There are seven treatment rooms, a relaxation area and a dedicated infinity-edge swimming pool. 

For food, there’s Contango in the Tower Wing, an all-day dining restaurant that offers a selection of local and international cuisines from its open kitchen. For a spot of nostalgia, The Colonial Café serves traditional colonial dishes while the adjacent Tea Lounge does a decent afternoon tea, complete with scones and cream. After dark, The Bar hosts a live music session featuring the descendants of the famed Maestro Alfonso Soliano, whose family is well known for their musical talents in the local circuit.
