St Giles The Gar­dens

Mid Val­ley City, Lingkaran Syed Pu­tra, KL (03 2268 1188/www.stgiles.com). This five-star ho­tel is con­ve­niently parked next to two of Malaysia’s most fre­quented shop­ping malls, The Gar­dens and Mid Val­ley Mega­mall. The spank­ing clean ho­tel was one of KL’s firsts to dis­al­low smok­ing in both pub­lic ar­eas and guest rooms, thus en­sur­ing no sec­ond­hand smoke get­ting into your chil­dren’s lungs. The infinity pool makes for stun­ning fam­ily pho­tos and the ho­tel’s close prox­im­ity to the malls makes it easy to lug shop­ping bags back to the room.

NEW The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur

6 Jalan Ste­sen Sen­tral 2, Kuala Lumpur Sen­tral, KL (03 2727 1111/ www.stregiskualalumpur.com). This com­bi­na­tion of ho­tel, mall and theme park is pretty much fool­proof. Sun­way Re­sort’s swim­ming pool has a mar­vel­lous man-made wa­ter­fall while the ad­ja­cent theme park fea­tures at­trac­tions like a man­made surf beach and thrilling wa­ter rides like the Vu­vuzela. There’s also the Ex­treme Park, Wildlife Park, Amuse­ment Park and Scream Park. Not tired yet? The ad­join­ing mall houses a skat­ing rink, archery range, bowl­ing al­ley, cin­ema and gam­ing ar­cade. Be sure to check out Nick­elodeon Lost La­goon, Sun­way La­goon’s lat­est at­trac­tion, if your kids are fans of the chil­dren’s TV chan­nel.

The Westin Kuala Lumpur

199 Jalan Bukit Bin­tang, KL (03 2731 8333/ www.thewestinkualalumpur.com). The Westin Kuala Lumpur makes it very clear that kids are re­garded as guests of hon­our. Kids are gifted com­pli­men­tary wel­come bags stuffed with treats, while par­ents of in­fants and tod­dlers re­ceive their own spe­cial goodie bags con­taining Band Aids, an­ti­sep­tic wipes, socket cov­ers and a night­light. The Kids’ Club has a mini play­ground for kids and some staff are on hand if you don’t have a nanny. Open daily from 9am to 7pm, the fa­cil­ity is for chil­dren aged from two to 12 years old. The Discovery Room is a hub of ac­tiv­ity and all chil­dren re­ceive a Discovery Pack filled with ev­ery­thing they need to ex­plore KL: a com­pass, a mem­ber­ship bracelet, a dis­pos­able cam­era, a can­teen and a col­lectible travel pass­port. To top it all off, The Westin of­fers an ex­clu­sive Eat Well menu for kids, which aims to in­still the im­por­tance of healthy eat­ing in lit­tle din­ers.
