Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Perhaps the most iconic hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the Majestic, will re-open its doors on 1 December.  Built in the 1930s, the original property became one of the great landmarks of Kuala Lumpur in its time.  It is documented as a national heritage site under the Antiquities Act.  Set on 3.2 acres on Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, its key location is on the historical mile of Kuala Lumpur, opposite the old Moorish style railway station.
A new 15-storey Tower Wing complementing the art deco style, houses the reception, deluxe rooms and suites, Opus One restaurant, 17 meeting rooms, a pillarless ballroom that can seat 1,200 people, a gymnasium and a swimming pool.

In total the property features 300 luxurious rooms and suites.  The Majestic Wing, the original five-storey Majestic building, houses suites with butler service, The Colonial Café, The Bar and The Tea Lounge. 

The Majestic Spa, in a separate building, is distinctively appointed in the art nouveau style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s famous Willow Tearooms of Scotland.  It offers seven treatment rooms, a relaxation area, and its own swimming pool.  A second two-storey building called The Smoke House features a bar, grooming room, cigar room, private dining area with a chef on call, a screening room and card room.  www.majestickl.com
