On our radar this month


W Ho­tels’ new W Kuala Lumpur is at the heart of the bustling city, steps from iconic sights. Show­cas­ing a “Jun­gle City” aes­thetic, tra­di­tional batik mo­tifs and bam­boo-in­spired chan­de­liers blend into sleek glass and me­tal ac­cents lit up with LED fix­tures. In the liv­ing-room-style lobby of the ho­tel, guests are wel­comed un­der chan­de­liers made of spin­ning Malay toys and a ceil­ing that mir­rors Kuala Lumpur’s to­pog­ra­phy. Its 150 rooms open to views of the Petronas Twin Tow­ers while the pres­i­den­tial Ex­treme WOW Suite

sprawl across 520sqm of space.

Din­ing spans the globe, from lo­cal spe­cial­i­ties and Western dishes at FLOCK, to the lo­cal out­post of Sin­ga­pore’s ac­claimed SAINT PIERRE where Asian-in­spired el­e­ments meet French cui­sine in a con­tem­po­rary set­ting. For a tra­di­tional Can­tonese meal re­de­fined with modern in­flu­ences, book a ta­ble at YEN. W’s Sig­na­ture WET Deck is the place to cool down with a dip and a sip, and here that’s topped

off with panoramic views of the city’s sky­line – or if fit­ness is more to your in­ter­est, you’ll find a view just as strik­ing at the FIT gym where state-of-the-art equip­ment will give your health reg­i­men a boost. For a pam­per­ing ses­sion, vi­tal­ity pools and chroma-ther­apy steam baths await guests at AWAY Spa – in­dulge in a head-to-toe treat­ment and then head to the Beauty Bar for an all-round stay

of ex­cite­ment, spoil­ing and re­newal.
