If it’s old-world charm you’re af­ter, head over to The Ma­jes­tic Ho­tel Kuala Lumpur for tra­di­tional English af­ter­noon tea at the aptly named Colo­nial Café. Re­call­ing the el­e­gance of decades past, the Tea Lounge in the Ma­jes­tic Wing is all warm tones, with plush so­fas and arm­chairs to re­cline in as you lis­ten to tunes from the grand pi­ano. French dou­ble doors open out onto the ver­dant front lawn – a serene set­ting for a leisurely tea of scones, fin­ger sand­wiches, pastries, and savouries served on a three-tier stand.

Take your pick from the Ma­jes­tic-blend tea or brewed cof­fee to ac­com­pany per­fectly formed pastries. For some­thing more in­dul­gent, book the Or­chid Con­ser­va­tory to sit sur­rounded by or­chids of myr­iad colours bloom­ing within a glass atrium. Af­ter­noon Tea on Valen­tine’s Day at the Colo­nial Café is priced at RM58++ at the Tea Lounge, RM88++ at the Drawing Room, and RM108++ at the Or­chid Con­ser­va­tory. Af­ter­noon tea is from 3pm to 6pm. www.ma­jes­ti­chotelkl.com
