The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur Hotel Review: A Flawless Stay in Malaysia

This year I visited Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for the third time. For this year’s adventure, I stayed at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur in a large suite. Recently renovated, this hotel left a strong impression on me, the property looks incredible. This magical experience all started at the Kuala Lumpur international airport.

Like the other fine hotels in the city, most of the best are located near the famous Petronas Towers. The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur supplied us with a well-coordinated airport transfer, which I’d recommend you to book. This took about 40 minutes with little traffic and streamlined the entire arrival process.

I loved the entire design of the property, especially The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s public areas. The lobby for example, had several different seating areas, all luxurious, a great first impression. Upon arrival, I received a refreshing welcome drink.

I was happy to finish the check in process and head up to the 17th floor to view my suite for the next three nights. Like my visit to The Ritz-Carlton in Vienna, The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur prepared a very nice welcome amenity including macarons, chocolate, fruit and of course a bottle of prosecco. Cheers Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur!

The master bathroom really had that wow factor! This bathroom was massive and was separated into four sections, bath tub, shower stall, vanity and separate toilet area.

One of my favorite areas of The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur would have to be the gym, multiple pool and spa area, located on the fourth floor. Firstly, the gym was fantastic, with tons of updated equipment and great facilities. Working out there was a delight! After completion of a great daily workout, I would return to the changing rooms, which contained a steam room, sauna and large hot tub. In each of these areas, they offer refreshments like fruit and lemon water, these little touches made me feel warm and fuzzy.

The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s club lounge is located on the ground floor. The lounge offers all of the usual amenities including specialized daily breakfast, afternoon tea and evening cocktails and canapes. I must note that the staff at the lounge were excellent! Very personable and just lovely people to interact with. Everyday I enjoyed every bite of food inside of the lounge, and that’s saying a lot!

The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur’s main breakfast is located on the first floor, in The Cobalt Room. Looking at all the different types of food will make your head spin! Malaysian cuisine is diverse so you’ll be sure to find a great variety of Indian, Chinese, Western and local Malay cuisine. I especially loved the pickled items, which they have a plentiful amount of.

One of our days at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur we had a lunch at The Patisserie. There you’ll find a mid-sized lunch menu and also where you can buy fantastic sweets, located in the the front display case. For lunch, we ordered a salad, spaghetti Bolognese and a wagyu beef burger. The burger was incredible! The burger was topped with beef bacon (pork bacon is not common in Malaysia) and onion rings. Everything on this burger fit together perfectly and the meat was super juicy. Highly recommended!

Along with The Patisserie and The Cobalt Room, The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur offers a Chinese restaurant named Li Yen and a fine dining restaurant called The Library. I was sure to have a meal at each, read about Li Yen here and The Library here.

The Library Restaurant Review: Fine Dining in Kuala Lumpur

21 Feb 2018

Inside of The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Kuala Lumpur, there’s a fine dining restaurant known as The Library. As one would assume from the name, the interior resembles a library. The restaurant features comfortable furniture and white tablecloths. The library serves a menu of the day, everyday. This boils down to a one-page menu with a handful of choices offered at a set price, pay a little extra and you can enjoy wine-pairing. We made sure to visit during a recent stay at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur hotel.

Our server for the night was Adriana who was a delight. She started us off with a Ritz-Carlton Signature Spritzer cocktail, a refreshing way to start the meal. The first course soon came which was Oyster Beignet. These were deep fried oysters, tasty indeed.

The next course was a sweet corn and lobster soup. The consistency was rich and creamy and once again very enjoyable. I liked the way this meal was going!

For the main course we had four options to choose from, however, the 300g Australian Angus sirloin practically jumped out of the menu at me. This giant piece of meat was served on a large wooden platter with a few vegetables, fried potato wedges, roasted garlic, hollandaise sauce, pepper sauce and regular salt. When it comes down to it, all I really need is a nice steak with salt along with a glass of red wine. Adriana must have read my mind because she came to offer us a glass of a 2015 Sister’s Run Shiraz. It was all perfect, just a bit too big for my stomach.

We didn’t think we could fit anymore food in our bellies, but nonetheless, our desserts were on their way. There were two dessert options, the chef’s selection of the day and the chef’s selection of international cheeses. We went with one of each and ended up getting to choose our dessert from a dessert cart.

Our experience at The Library inside of The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur was wonderful. This meal was a great addition to our lovely stay at the property, which you can read about in a this article. The quality of the food, setting with live music and the service were all top-notch. I can absolutely recommend you to have a dinner at The Library restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

Li Yen Restaurant Review: Top Chinese Food in Kuala Lumpur

21 Feb 2018

Overall, out of the hundreds of restaurants that I have visited around the world, in my experience Chinese restaurants tend to be the most consistent when it comes great food. During my latest trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I ate at the Li Yen Chinese restaurant inside of The Ritz-Carlton hotel. Li Yen definitely continued this trend of consistent, high-quality flavors. On a side-note, be sure to read about The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur hotel in a this article.

It was close to Chinese New Year and thus the restaurant was quite busy. A busy restaurant is usually a good sign. We started the meal with hot and sour soup followed shortly after by fried anchovies with lotus root. These two dishes were phenomenal.

Next was probably the most exciting dish of the evening, which were the Beijing duck served in pancakes. These were already prepared for us, so all we had to do was put them in our mouths and savor. Orgasmic!

Li Yen Restaurant Review: Top Chinese Food in Kuala Lumpur Asia Blog Food Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Another top dish of the evening was the lemon fried chicken. The presentation of this dish did not give any hints of the amazing flavor that was discovered after sinking our teeth in. The lemon chicken is a must order dish!

Li Yen Restaurant Review: Top Chinese Food in Kuala Lumpur Asia Blog Food Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

We ordered a half of Beijing duck, half was used for the pancakes and half was fried with noodles. About now was when the second half was served, and I must say that fried noodles with duck is a new favorite of mine!

Li Yen Restaurant Review: Top Chinese Food in Kuala Lumpur Asia Blog Food Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

To finish off the evening we went with an order of the mango pudding dessert. Pierre loves a nice, light Chinese dessert. When you’re stuffed, you really can’t be bothered with a heavy dessert. A perfect finish to a great evening.

The evening went off without a hitch. The classically designed dining room was on point, the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Don’t hesitate, just visit the Li Yen Chinese restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

I’m not sure what it is about Malaysia, but they sure know how to treat the body. On my last trip to Kuala Lumpur, I had an opportunity to visit the Majestic Spa located at Hotel Majestic. This was actually my second spa experience in Malaysia and I was quite excited because the first one was so nice.

The Majestic Spa is in its own building next to the Majestic Wing of the hotel. It is quite large and has many treatment rooms. When you arrive, you are offered a welcome drink. I chose the alcoholic option and I was so happy I did. Tasty. The signature spa experience takes you on a journey through a story of colonial Malaysia. It’s basically a story about finding bliss in paradise.

Hotel Majestic Review (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Hotel Majestic was originally built in 1932. It is a symbol of luxury and colonial heritage in Malaysia. Nowadays, the hotel has been updated but kept that original feel in its Majestic Wing. They’ve added on a Tower Wing which adds tons of room and a more modern feel. Depending on what style you prefer, the hotel has a lot to offer on both wings.

I arrived in the afternoon and was greeted by the staff at the airport which guided me to the express train. The train to the city takes about 30 minutes and once I arrived at Sentral station (this is how they spell it) there was a private car there to pick me up. In about five minutes time, we were arriving at the front doors of the hotel.

I finished checking in and learned about the hotel’s offering in the Majestic Wing and then headed up to see my room. I had a large very large suite. The design was similar to the classic elements in the lobby. However, the rooms had a slightly more contemporary feel. What really excited me, was the bathroom. Look at the tiles and the bathtub! Just flawless.

If you read the article about the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Kuala Lumpur you’ll know that I had a fantastic trip. If you haven’t had a chance, go read that article first! While at the hotel I had a chance to eat a lunch and a dinner at their Aqua restaurant. The restaurant overlooks the pool!

The pool view in the daytime and the nighttime is just gorgeous. Beyond the pool there is a large public park which adds to the already relaxing atmosphere. Let’s first talk about the lunch. I enjoyed the lunch poolside, inside one of their cabanas. These are very comfortable and a great place to relax.

We started with some mocktails to help cool off from the hot weather. Both were exquisite and refreshing. This was actually my second meal in Kuala Lumpur. When I found out that they had Laksa on the menu, I had to try it. The staff informed me that they had recently revamped the recipe. I must say this is a truly awe inspiring dish. All I need is spicy noodles and I’m happy!

Lai Po Heen: Perfect Chinese Food in Kuala Lumpur

30 Jul 2016

Pierre has been known to enjoy food from all around the globe. On his most recent trip to the Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur, he had a chance to eat at their famous Cantonese restaurant. The name of this restaurant is Lai Po Heen and is quite popular with locals and travelers alike.

The restaurant has the traditional interior design that you see in most Cantonese restaurants. This restaurant is on the classier side seeing that it is inside of the Mandarin Oriental hotel.

Lucky for me this was a meal with five people. This insured that I got to try a wide variety of dishes including some of my favorites. We started the meal off with an order of turnip cake which is nice and spicy. A “must order” in my opinion and here it was extra flavorful!

Of course, another one of my absolute favorites is hot and sour soup. This is a soup that I must order every time I visit a Chinese restaurant. I haven’t had them in years, but I also had to sample their chicken feet. They had me strutting like a rooster.

A memorable part of the dining experience was one of the recommended mocktails. It paired perfectly with all of the food. There were too many dishes to name all of them but just know that the consistency was very high and all were quite amazing. Actually, none of the dishes disappointed me whatsoever. Everything was phenomenal even when it came to presentation.

For dessert, we were recommended the durian and mango pancakes. I was very intrigued by the thought of these. Inside there were pieces of the fruits with cream. The Durion was a bit stronger in flavor but still enjoyable. The mango was obviously good. I mean who doesn’t like mango?

This dining experience was nothing less than splendid. I really have no complaints. The service was impeccable and the food was super delicious. I love the atmosphere and you could tell that everyone else did too because it was busy. If you’re looking for a wonderful Cantonese meal, I would highly recommend you to visit Lai Po Heen inside of the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

Pierre has been known to enjoy food from all around the globe. On his most recent trip to the Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur, he had a chance to eat at their famous Cantonese restaurant. The name of this restaurant is Lai Po Heen and is quite popular with locals…

Mandarin Oriental Hotel Review (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia)

Asia you’ve done it again! My first trip to Malaysia went off without a hitch. I arrived in the late evening also known as the night. I headed to immigration only to find out that it was like walking through mall security. Waiting at the Kuala Lumpur airport was a nice gentleman from the Mandarin Oriental hotel. He showed me to my private airport transfer. Before I knew it, I was being whisked away to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel that is next door to the Petronas towers. If you’re unfamiliar, these are the most recognizable buildings in Malaysia.

Having boss status everywhere allowed me to check in the elevator on the way to the room. I arrived at my suite only to find trays of chocolates, specialty sodas and of course a bottle of champagne. Thanks for the warm welcome Mandarin Oriental!

Exhausted from the recent flight from Thailand, it was off to sleep but not before getting some fantastic images of the suite. Very spacious indeed. A notable feature was the fantastic view of the park below.

The next morning it was down to inspect their newly renovated gym, spa, pool and relaxation areas. This is really quite an impressive floor. I could easily stay busy there all day long. All the equipment in the gym is fresh. The locker rooms incorporate tons of areas to relax including a jacuzzi, sauna, relaxation area and steam room. All gorgeous, especially the steam room!

I even had a chance to experience a traditional Malay massage. I’m basically Thai at heart but I must admit that this massage suited me much better than Thai style! I was actually a little sore from all of the Thai massages that I received recently and this one sorted me all out! Great work! I must actually admit something. This was the best massage that I’ve ever had. I wouldn’t lie to you. These women were real experienced and every part of the body scrub and massage felt amazing. I walked out feeling like a new Pierre.

Of course, you know that I had the privilege of lounge access during my stay. It was quite wonderful because the view looked out over the Petronas towers as well as the park. It was styled wonderfully and had amazing food. I have all of the usual offerings including breakfast, afternoon tea as well as cocktail hour in the evening. I love trying the local Malaysian food in the lounge. Comfortable, convenient and tasty!

I mentioned the pool earlier, we had a chance to experience lunch and dinner at the restaurant that sits beside it. It’s called Aqua and you’ll be able to read about it in a separate article. We also had a Cantonese lunch at their amazing Lai Po Heen restaurant. You’ll definitely have to check out these two additional articles as soon as possible!

The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Kuala Lumpur provides the perfect starting point to explore the rest of the city. It’s right in the center of the action. We were kept busy the entire stay and before I knew it, I was back in a private car for airport transfer. I really must stop and recommend you to schedule an airport transfer to make your life less stressful. Wink.

The Mandarin Oriental brand has yet to disappoint me. It’s important to note that the property will be refurbished soon. They have so much to offer that it’s quite impressive. I really didn’t expect this much! I loved all of the food, the great service, design, location and much more. This was my first time to Kuala Lumpur and I must say it was a success. I’m so happy I had the chance to visit the Mandarin Oriental hotel and I recommend you to do the same as soon as you visit Kuala Lumpur!
