Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Borneo
This lavish, landmark 5-star occupies a plum position between the city centre park and iconic Petronas Towers, in the heart of KL. It has plenty of presence and glamour, without ever becoming brash, and is run with a great sense of pride and efficiency, as befits one of the world’s top hotels. Classically furnished rooms, suites and apartments come in no less than 14 different categories; all enjoy sweeping skyline views, as does the heavenly alfresco pool. Also on site are a dozen or more restaurants, coffee shops and bars, serving an impressive range of cuisines in high style.
