The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur has come of age for today’s global affluent traveller with the reveal of the completely reimagined 18-year old luxury hotel.
Located in Kuala Lumpur’s luxury shopping, commercial and nightlife downtown district known as the Golden Triangle, the luxury property commissioned the renowned New York-based design studio, Alexandra Champalimaud, to create an new environment which would be a canvas for extraordinary experiences. The result was a transformation which took as its inspiration the heart of The Ritz-Carlton, its ladies and gentlemen, while balancing the cultural and historical heritage of the property. The design imbues the property with a fresh palette of neutral shades, contemporary details and uncompromisingly high-quality furnishings and finishes throughout the 364 new guestrooms and suites, restaurants and public spaces.
The transformation builds on the hotel’s position as the home of choice for the world’s elite including royalty and heads of state. The refreshed Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur also created a series of new experiences within its refined surroundings. The property was renowned as Malaysia’s first around-the-clock butler service hotel and the legacy continues, with every guest assigned their own personal butler on-call throughout their stay 24 hours a day.
The property’s Spa Village team developed a new treatment based around the experience of Asia’s first Sensory Sound Bath Room and the culinary team has introduced its own equivalent of a butler with a Chef-on-Call to tailor personalised menus and experiences for corporate and private events.
Each experience throughout The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur, has been refined, renewed and refreshed, from the signature afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge through to the new Library space with its vintage cognac and whiskies collection.
The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur commands a stellar reputation amongst sophisticated travellers as a luxury landmark in the vibrant Golden Triangle of Malaysia’s capital city since it opened almost two decades ago.
The hotel is within the Starhill Gallery complex, the city’s premier luxury retail and dining destination. It also houses the largest number of global luxury brands under one roof, some of which are in Malaysia for the first time.
