JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur receives massive makeover

The JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur has celebrated the official re-launch after a complete year-long refurbishment.

The JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur opened its doors on 12 July 1997 and went on to set a new standard in hospitality and style for Kuala Lumpur – a modern and cosmopolitan city unique for its melting pot of cultures and traditions.

The prime location of the hotel right in the heart of Bukit Bintang, the city’s central business and entertainment district, has made it a choice hotel for both local residents and travellers – for business and leisure.

Guests are now greeted by a new sleek lobby of cool grey Emperado marble that beautifully reflects the magnificent cut crystal chandelier of six linked sparkling rings.

The refreshed and contemporary rooms and suites have been thoughtfully designed using modern materials and polished chrome, matched by stylish and tech-friendly amenities.

The generously proportioned bathrooms include a vanity counter, rainforest shower and a Japanese-inspired bathtub for that well-deserved indulgent soak.

Nine brand new Cabana Poolside rooms on Level 6 have been added to the accommodation selection and suited for guests looking to spend quality leisure time in the city.

Mere steps away from the inviting pool and new pool bar, guests can now simply stroll out of their rooms to enjoy a refreshing cocktail.

The JW Executive Lounge on Level three provides exclusive services and culinary presentations throughout the day and is ideal for guests who wish for a contemplative space to read or for an intimate meeting in one of the private meeting rooms.

The hotel’s strategic location in the city centre has also made it a venue of choice for meetings, conferences and social events.

Twenty flexible meeting and function room options are available for events of varying nature and capacity.

The addition of the 300-seater Bayu Ballroom uniquely located by the poolside includes a built-in LED screen on the stage

The hotel’s signature restaurant Shanghai, is the only Shanghainese hotel restaurant in Kuala Lumpur.

The restaurant has also undergone a complete transformation and emerged with a touch of modern Chinese glamour.

A new bar in the restaurant welcomes diners and is perfect for those who desire a Shanghai-themed cocktail concocted right before them as a prelude to their Shanghainese culinary journey.

The dining and entertainment offerings at JW Marriott extends into the connecting Feast Village Starhill Gallery; offering an unparalleled dining experience and a stunning array of culinary offerings from Asian to Mediterranean across 11 restaurants.

The meandering alleyways of the rustic, multi-ethnic Village and the multicoloured ‘time tunnel’ take diners and visitors on a journey of discovery and wonderment of the finest details in design and iconic paraphernalia.

Some of the city’s top bars and restaurants are conveniently situated within the complex.

The iconic JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur has been a home away from home for guests, near and afar, for the last 20 years and will continue to deliver exceptional experiences that are warm, genuine and unobtrusive, with the level of precision that will make each guest’s stay extraordinary and meaningful.
