Celebrate memories of a lifetime at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Immortalise life’s most joyous occasions amid the colonial charm and inimitable glamour of The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
Each opulent, beautifully decorated space at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur holds a story embodied with soul and heart. The city’s iconic historic property — a national heritage site dating to 1932 — is no stranger to dazzling social events, sophisticated receptions and weddings remembered by generations to come.
Weddings have generated some of the fondest memories: vintage black- and- white photographs of newly- wed couples standing on the famous steps of the original Hotel Majestic, like those of Mr and Mrs EH Wong in 1960, still find their way back to the hotel today. So, too, do the happy couples. For example, Mr and Mrs George de Silva, who held their wedding reception at Hotel Majestic in 1966, commemorated their golden anniversary at The Roof Garden at the start of this year.
The elegant white steps leading up to the original Majestic Wing are now a highly sought after location of the next generation of newlyweds, many of whom capture that picture- perfect moment in front of the hotel, with their families beside them. It is a highlight of what is often a grand affair, given that the Majestic Ballroom upstairs, in all its pillarless, chandeliered glory, is capable of seating 1,200 people for a splendid banquet.
Weddings, however, are but an element of many in the cultivation of one’s highly personalised story at The Majestic. The hotel’s treasure chest of spaces — some cosy, others larger and full of life — are there to be explored and claimed as one’s own. The Orchid Conservatory, for instance, is a favourite venue for intimate lunches or dinners for up to 20 people or bridal showers complete with afternoon tea. It is also a wonderfully romantic spot for a proposal, amid the glass atrium’s plethora of colourful phalaenopsis orchids — a botanical marvel that cannot be found anywhere else in Malaysia.
At The Smoke House, gentlemen can stage a bachelor party with a touch of class by reserving its private dining room, which comes with a chef who is always ready to create a unique menu for up to 10 guests. Johnnie, the amiable barman, is an expert at rustling up classic cocktails such as the whisky and soda stengah or the tropical Jungle Bird. The on- site bespoke tailor and Truefitt & Hill’s grooming service will ensure that the groom and his friends look their best.
The delights of Colonial Cafe and its classic colonial and Hainanese- inspired cuisine in the Majestic Wing will appeal to anyone seeking to hold a birthday party or an anniversary to remember. With a seating capacity for 120 guests that stretches to two covered courtyards, its pristine white tablecloths, timber panelling and comfortable cane- backed leather chairs come together to recreate

the refined, stately atmosphere of old Malaya. In the evenings, guests are entertained by The Solianos – the descendants of the legendary maestro Alfonso Soliano — all of whom channel his verve and panache with their renditions of songs popular in the late 1950s, around the time when Malaya gained its independence. The adjacent Tea Lounge, which looks out onto a neatly trimmed lawn, is a picturesque spot for daytime celebrations over afternoon tea.
On level four, The Roof Garden — a striking outdoor setting with capacity for 120 to 150 guests — lends itself magnificently to a cocktail soiree or a vow renewal ceremony. Combined with winning views of Kuala Lumpur’s historic mile, it is all the more reason to set your sights soaring for your next celebration at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
