There are views of Kuala Lumpur icons plus the highest hotel rooftop bar in the city centre at Malaysia’s first Banyan Tree resort.
Kuala Lumpur is known for its skyscrapers, among them the famous Petronas Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur Tower, which have both become recognisable symbols of the city.
So it's only fitting that the Malaysian capital's newest hotel is housed in a sleek 59-storey tower with views of both.
The first Malaysian property for the upscale Banyan Tree brand, the new Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur occupies the top seven floors of the Banyan Tree Signatures Pavilion Kuala Lumpur building in the central Golden Triangle district.
Billed as "a modern city sanctuary with signature local experiences", the hotel has 55 rooms and suites ranging from 51sqm to 200sqm, most of which overlook the Petronas Twin Towers and/or the Kuala Lumpur Tower.
Amenities include a spa, an open-air pool with towers views and four dining venues including Vertigo, a rooftop bar on the 59th floor that's said to be the highest of its type in the city centre.
There's also a French-inspired bakery, an afternoon tea and wine lounge on the 53rd floor and a steakhouse on the 58th.
- Until September 30, the hotel has an Opening Celebration Offer including breakfast for two, spa credit, two drinks at Vertigo and a discount on afternoon tea and spa products. It costs from about $295 per night.
