Bukit Bintang Bliss
The Malaysian capital’s newest hotel puts you right in the middle of the action.
December 1 marks the opening of Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur, the debut property of the Pavilion Group and the newest property managed by the Banyan Tree brand. Rising 13 stories above the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur shopping mall, the hotel is within walking distance of Bukit Bintang MRT Station and major attractions such as the Petronas Twin Towers, Jalan Alor Night Market, and Kuala Lumpur Tower. Given its location and the wealth of dining and nightlife venues nearby, it’s an obvious choice for holidaymakers and business travelers looking to stay in the heart of the Malaysian capital. Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur features 325 contemporary rooms and suites, including 79 club rooms for guests who prefer a bit more exclusivity. Booking yourself into a club room gives you access to the Club Lounge on Level 14, which offers a delectable breakfast spread plus light bites and cocktails. Meanwhile, the 26 suites are spread across four categories, with room sizes ranging from 64 to 319 square meters. Feeling hungry? On Level 8, take your pick from a Southeast Asian– inspired smorgasbord at all- day dining venue The Courtyard, or opt for Japanese cuisine with a twist at Ebisu. One floor below, the Whisky Cove has a wide selection of whiskies and blends from around the world. Don’t leave without getting pampered at the award- winning Banyan Tree Spa, and make sure you soak up the vistas of the Kuala Lumpur skyline from Level 18, where you can stay in shape at Sky Gym or take a dip in the rooftop infinity pool. And should you be on the lookout for souvenirs, the in- house Banyan Tree Gallery stocks a range of handicrafts, resort apparel, and the brand’s signature spa amenities. Valid for stays until March 31, 2019, the Opening Celebration package entitles you to special room rates from MYR 498++ per night, daily buffet breakfast for two, and 15 percent savings on dinner at The Courtyard. In addition, you’ll receive 30 percent off full body massages and 15 percent off treatment packages at Banyan Tree Spa, alongside a 15 percent discount on Banyan Tree Essentials products.
