A hip new hotel has joined the lineup of luxury hotels launching in Malaysia this year – As of August 23, 2018, W Kuala Lumpur has made a highly anticipated debut at the prime address of 121, Jalan Ampang. Bringing with it its trademark attitude of bold design and dynamic lifestyle, the city’s hospitality scene can expect a stylish twist with W Kuala Lumpur’s design narrative of ‘jungle city’ and ‘confluence’.

Here's what to expect when you step inside...

Stepping In

W Kuala Lumpur’s porte-cochère is the start of an ethnic journey, with larger-than-life batik motifs-meets-sleek metal, and bamboo-inspired chandeliers evoking the city’s verdant pockets. Jungle elements permeate the Living Room lobby decorated with a ceiling evoking KL’s topography. Traditional Malay toy chandeliers and LED waterfall lighting complete the tropical theme.
