Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur: Malaysia’s Exclusive Urban Sanctuary for the Discerning
“Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is specially curated for discerning travellers and guests looking to be in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s bustling conurbation, while still having their own private haven to come ‘home’ to and relax in,” – Mr. Anders Dimblad, General Manager of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur
With roots in Singapore, the 24 year old luxury hospitality company has become an international brand that manages and develops resorts, hotels and spas in Asia, America, Africa and Middle East. Best known for Banyan Tree, an all villa concept which pioneered pool villas and tropical garden spa, the company launched its first Banyan Tree resort in Phuket over 20 years ago when when founder Ho Kwon Ping and his wife Claire Chiang came across a plot of land while they were on holiday in Bang Tao Bay, on the western coast of Phuket in the Andaman Sea, and thought it would make an ideal location for a resort. With this level of expertise and know-how Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is expected to redefine the urban resort experience with unique Banyan Tree signature touches including the Resort Host service to offer guests a true urban sanctuary.
Occupying the top seven floors of Banyan Tree Signatures Pavilion Kuala Lumpur building, Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur will feature 55 exquisite rooms and suites, ranging from 51 square metres to 200 square metres in size, with contemporary flair and breath-taking views of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and Kuala Lumpur Tower from most rooms.
If a truly sensuous, restful experience is what you’re looking for amidst the daily urban hustle and grind, then be prepared to experience the gamut of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur’s in-room facilities including Banyan Tree’s signature aromatherapy essential oils and chromotherapy shower in all room categories. Its suites will also feature a private relaxation pool, a spoiling treat for the senses.
A host of F&B options await guests with four exciting dining venues, each designed to stimulate great sensory and culinary experiences for the guests. From a French-inspired bakery at the Lobby – Bake by Banyan Tree; sky high afternoon tea and wine lounge on 53rd Floor – Altitude, to an exquisite seafood and grill restaurant on 58th Floor – Horizon Grill and the tallest hotel rooftop bar in the city centre on 59th Floor – Vertigo, the finest Kuala Lumpur has to offer.
Designed to be an urban oasis, Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur not only offers a luxuriously comfortable stay but also a comprehensive suite of facilities including three spacious and fully equipped boardrooms for those seeking to host intimate executive meetings or private engagements, an open-air pool with a stunning view of the towers and a state-of-the-art gym.
As one of the pioneers of award-winning oriental spas in Asia, Banyan Tree’s newest oasis in Kuala Lumpur reintroduces an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices which have been passed down from generations. As such, the massage treatments are based on a ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach that celebrates the human touch and the use of natural herbs and spices. Some of the signature spa treatments include Master Therapist Experience, which is a specially tailored treatment using a repertoire of massage techniques and tools, drawn from the expertise of the Master Therapist, and Malaysian Bliss, with guests discovering an oasis amidst the city of Kuala Lumpur as they indulge in a refreshing scrub and a relaxing Nusantara massage.
