W Kuala Lumpur takes brand into Malaysia for first time
W Kuala Lumpur has opened, marking the brand’s first-ever hotel in Malaysia.
Owned by Tropicana Corporation Berhad, W Kuala Lumpur opens its doors in the heart of the capital, steps from the world-famous Petronas Twin Towers.
Through bold, innovative design, W Kuala Lumpur immerses guests in the city’s wildly lush greenery, globally renowned cuisine, centuries-old history and growing appetite for playful luxury.
Kuala Lumpur is known for its fast-paced spirit which emerged from modest beginnings.
Nestled between the Klang and Gombak Rivers, Kuala Lumpur boasts a sunny tropical climate, flourishing jungle, soaring buildings and traditional Malaysian architecture – a meeting of old and new, nature and humankind, on every street.
Even within the city centre, nature is juxtaposed against architecture with towering skyscrapers emerging from the canopy of green.
Beyond the city’s juxtapositions, Kuala Lumpur is home to a multicultural mix of world-class cuisine and creativity, the perfect spot for the brand’s debut in Malaysia.
“Kuala Lumpur is one of the most modern cities in Asia. Skyrocketing from its humble heritage as a mining town to a skyline punctuated by skyscrapers, it’s clear that, like W, the city has a passion for embracing what’s new and next in the world – a natural fit for the W Hotels brand,” said Anthony Ingham, global brand leader, W Hotels Worldwide.
“We are blown away by how the city is moving towards the future while still maintaining its traditional and cultural roots.
“It’s a precise balancing act that we have brought to the intricate, vibrant design of W Kuala Lumpur to show guests from across the globe all the magic this city has to offer.”
W Kuala Lumpur features 150 stylish guest rooms and suites, including two Wow suites and the lavish Extreme Wow Suite (the brand’s take on the traditional presidential suite).
With a living space of over 520 square meters, the Extreme Wow Suite brings a new level of eclectic luxury to the city.
