NEW SOCIAL HUB FOR KL

Four Seasons Kuala Lumpur is fast becoming a new social hub for the Malaysian metropolis.

Located in KL’s “Golden Triangle” alongside the iconic Petronas Towers and across from the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, a key differentiator for the new Four Seasons establishment is its mixed-use design. Indeed, with 209 spacious guest rooms and suites, six restaurants and lounges, a signature spa, and the city’s most expansive luxury retail outpost, the 65-storey skyscraper is also home to 242 Four Seasons Private Residences and 27 serviced apartments.

Officially launched on Sunday November 18, 2018, the opening was officiated by His Royal Highness Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Al-Haj and the guest of honour, the Acting King His Royal Highness Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah. Raja Muda of Selangor, Tengku Amir Shah, Minister of Economic Affairs, YB Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali, Minister of Federal Territories, YB Tuan Khalid Abdul Samad, Menteri Besar of Selangor, YB Tuan Amirudin Shari and Menteri Besar of Kedah, Dato Seri Muhkriz Mahathir were also present to witness the commemorative grand opening event.

The Four Seasons is rapidly becoming a new social hub for the city… underlined by the fact that General Manager Tom Roelens (pictured above in Bar Trigona) reports around 20% of the hotel’s business is from Malaysians: “They’ve adopted us as the place to be in staycations, and love the eight treatment room spa, offering a carefully designed menu inspired by Malaysian healing traditions and the latest global therapies.”

Another factor putting the Four Seasons at the heart of social activities of the local community is the collaboration with local celebrity guest Chef Dato’ Fazley Yaakob to curate the upcoming festive celebration menu for Curate. According to Roelens, the Bubbly Brunch at Curate, with a pop-up bar by Bar Trigona, not only requires booking to assure a seat, but is spilling over into the surrounding lounge due to extremely high demand.

Bar Trigona is fast becoming known as a temple of modern cocktail culture in KL with award-winning Head Bartender Ashish Sharma presiding.

“We are becoming known as an exceptional long-stay destination in KL, with clients able to stay anything from a couple of weeks right up to a few years in our serviced apartments,” says Roelens.

With the theme of “Call Us Home” the unveiling of the property’s 27 ultra-luxurious serviced apartments offer guests privileged access to spacious one and two-bedroom flats, complemented by bespoke five-star hotel services and amenities tailored to guests’ every need.

“As part of our commitment to exceeding the requirements of today’s modern traveller – while also offering a Four Seasons lifestyle experience – the serviced apartments strike an exclusive balance between stylish, contemporary living and the comforts of home with the extension of our unrivalled luxury hotel services,” says Roelens.  “Whether for a short term or extended stay, the residential component creates a unique opportunity for us to bring our globally renowned personalised care and high-touch services and innovative amenities – such as privileged access to our culinary team, and butler and nanny services, seamlessly into the home.”
