In this is­sue, we high­light the newly ren­o­vated JW Mar­riott Kuala Lumpur in our cover story. The five-star ho­tel is one of the city’s finest and is lo­cated in Bukit Bin­tang, a thriv­ing cen­tre for both busi­ness and en­ter­tain­ment. JW Mar­riott Kuala Lumpur is also known as ‘the Hap­pen­ing Ho­tel’ as it cel­e­brates world-class de­sign, fine cui­sine and the good life. The prop­erty is linked to the up­scale Starhill Gallery, sit­u­ated on the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned Bin­tang Walk, cre­ated by YTL in 1999 and now a lead­ing re­tail and life­style des­ti­na­tion in Kuala Lumpur.

The pres­ti­gious Starhill Gallery fea­tures a host of pre­mier bou­tiques as well as the one-of-akind Feast Vil­lage Starhill Gallery, com­posed of the award-win­ning Shook! Restau­rant as well as seven other estab­lish­ments with an in­ter­na­tional selec­tion of cuisines. Join us on a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery of un­par­al­leled din­ing ex­pe­ri­ences.

We are also proud to present The Ritz-carl­ton, Koh Sa­mui, a stun­ning prop­erty with spec­tac­u­lar vis­tas of the Gulf of Thai­land. Con­ceived as the per­fect is­land get­away, the re­sort em­braces the Sa­mui way of life. It is an em­bod­i­ment of na­ture’s beauty, south­ern Thai gra­cious­ness and The Ritz-carl­ton’s leg­endary hos­pi­tal­ity, set­ting the stage to cre­ate in­spir­ing new mem­o­ries.

In the United King­dom, The Gains­bor­ough Bath Spa, housed in a Grade II listed build­ing, is the only five-star ho­tel in the coun­try with ac­cess to nat­u­ral heal­ing ther­mal waters. The ho­tel is the re­cip­i­ent of nu­mer­ous ac­co­lades in­clud­ing Condé Nast Trav­eler Awards (USA), Best Ho­tel in the UK, AA Ho­tel of the Year, Eng­land, and Three AA Rosettes for Dan Moon at The Gains­bor­ough Restau­rant. These achieve­ments re­flect YTL Ho­tels’ con­stant pur­suit of ex­cel­lence in all that we do. The YTL hos­pi­tal­ity arm aims to “craft rich ex­pe­ri­ences for all who stay with us”.
