The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur
168 Jalan Imbi Kuala Lumpur
The hushed, dignified style of this luxury hotel gives it a welcoming, boutique feel.
With just 365 rooms, The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur is relatively intimate, compared to other luxury brand hotels in the area. That said, it features the 3-level Carlton Conference Center with a banquet hall and 15 meeting and event rooms. Throughout, the hotel offers a tasteful, sedate (but not stuffy) atmosphere, which provides a soothing contrast to nearby, action-packed Bintang Walk.
One of many appealing aspects of this service-oriented hotel is that you don't have to stay in a club-level room to get club-level treatment: Even standard rooms provide butler service and complimentary Wi-Fi. Suites add complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea, complimentary limousine service, personalized stationery and access to the club lounge. The décor is handsome, with soothing cream and dark brown tones, and modern, cozy furnishings.
Li Yen serves Cantonese cuisine, while The Cobalt Room focuses on organic, international flavors. In addition, guests can dine at The Lobby Lounge (business lunch and afternoon tea), The Patisserie (soups and sandwiches) and The Library (dinner menu du jour). Sunday Roast at The Library is a local favorite, featuring signature roasts served on trolleys and free-flowing wine and Champagne. The on-site Spa Village Kuala Lumpur pampers with globally diverse treatments, a sensory sound bath and a tranquil pool area.
