IHG’s Kimpton brand to enter Malaysia market

New CBD hotel project flagged for 2023 opening

IHG will open Malaysia’s first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in 2023 at The Exchange TRX – a new experience-led lifestyle destination in the country’s capital.

The 471-room Kimpton Kuala Lumpur will reinvent a sophisticated and highly personalised lifestyle experience expected by today’s modern travellers that is aligned with TRX’s profile as the capital city’s new CBD.

The property will offer three food and beverage outlets including a rooftop bar and restaurant and a deli-grocer café. Guests can enjoy the views from the outdoor rooftop swimming pool or break a sweat in the gym.

Rajit Sukumaran, MD of South East Asia & Korea for InterContinental Hotels Group, said: “We’re excited to be partnering with LQ Retail Sdn Bhd to bring our heartfelt approach to hospitality with Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants to Kuala Lumpur as we continue to expand across the region into new markets.”

As Malaysia’s first international financial district and Kuala Lumpur’s future Central Business District (CBD), TRX will strengthen the city’s position as a leading centre for international finance and business.

Kuala Lumpur’s Kimpton will be part of The Exchange TRX, which sits at the heart of the district that is benchmarked against top global financial hubs such as London’s Canary Wharf, Singapore’s Marina Bay and Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre. It will feature world-class residential, commercial, entertainment and events, as well as lifestyle elements.

“Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ unique identity and proposition will create a vibrant, lively and inclusive experience that mirrors TRX’s identity as a district. We are certain that it will further elevate KL city’s hospitality offerings with its brand of casual luxury,” said Dato’ Haji Azmar Talib, Chief Executive Officer of TRX City.

Kimpton operates in 70-plus hotels and 85 restaurants, bars and lounges across urban locations, resort destinations around the world.
