The Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur is as breathtaking on the inside as it is on the outside. After all, it has been described as “the jewel in the crown of The Royale Chulan & Bintang Group of Hotels & Resorts”. This jewel evokes a sense of the timelessness of Malaysian heritage (ukiran awan larat is part of most of the décor and carvings) while offering services that would rival one of the world’s best hotels.
The foyer greets you with such grandeur that you might forget where you are, for a moment. If you are looking for a castle during your stay in KL as for a short in-country holiday, then this is the place to be. Located right next to Bukit Bintang shopping districts this leafy oasis is a suitable distance away from the hustle and bustle of the city; but not too close to disrupt your peace and quiet.
Even if the desire to venture out is absent, you need to leave the hotel to experience the best of what luxury has got to offer. The hotel has a dedicated club room- The Royale Club Lounge- for your business meetings or private meeting rooms while having your F&B needs met.
The Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur is a food haven, as guests would be spoilt for choice with the number of restaurants and cuisines available here such as The Lanai Lounge (premium coffee, tea, snack menus along with live lounge music), Warisan Café (open kitchen and buffet dining that has every single flavor of the world), Bunga Emas Restaurant (KL’s first Malay fine dining restaurant in a 5-star city hotel), Tai Ping Chinese Restaurant (a tranquil ambience that lives up to its name, which means peace) and L’heritage Restaurant (for those who prefer cuisines of the Western variety).
After you have satisfied your hunger, you can drop by The Heritage Club. Complete with a snack bar, cigar divan, sports bar, wine cellar and secluded sections for VIPs-what else would you need to unwind? If a late night drink is what you seek while listening to good live band music, you need not look any further than just the lobby.
Let’s just say that you’re too tired to even step out of your room. That would pose no problems whatsoever, as 24-hour in-room dining is available upon request, with a comprehensive menu.
Once you are completely rested, heal your body, mind and soul at Telaga Bunga Spa. The spa offers ancient Malay and Javanese healing treatments and rest assured that you will be floating out after your session.
If you’re up for a bit of exploring (after the beautiful courtyard tour, of course), there is a hair salon, a souvenir shop and a famous wedding designer’s gallery.
You have got all you need right in one place-conference banquets, restaurant, meeting rooms, spa-everything is well-thought of and it makes you not ever want to leave the hotel. Perhaps that is just right, as we felt reluctant to leave when it was time to check out.
So, if you are ever up for feeling like a royalty, you know where to go.
