With unfaltering enthusiasm for the Petronas Twin Towers, comes new hotels elbowing their way in for a piece of the view. It never gets old, does it? Although a little apprehensive about the potential additional traffic, we’re excited to explore the new sky-high restaurants and bars that come along with them. Hotels are continually upping their game, and we can’t wait to check out these new ones in KL.
Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur
This marks Malaysia’s first ever Banyan Tree property, and what a beaut she is. Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is split into a residence and hotel, offering flexible stay options based on your needs. As you can see from the photo above, the hotel boasts an unblocked view of the Petronas Twin Towers, complete with a bathtub to take in the view from. There are only 55 rooms and suites, making a stay at Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur somewhat exclusive. Restaurant and bar options include Horizon Grill, Altitude, Bake, and Vertigo, the city’s latest It sky bar. They also have their own spa.
