Occupying the top seven floors of the Banyan Tree Signatures Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, the new Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur promises exquisite suites, a stunning view and an exceptional pampering experience in the heart of the city. We had the opportunity of visiting the property during a recent media preview, and the classic Banyan Tree hospitality was instantly felt upon entering its lobby on level 53.

The first Banyan Tree in Malaysia offers 55 extravagant rooms

The first Banyan Tree in Malaysia offers 55 extravagant rooms that include a split-level duplex Banyan Tree Suite, a Sky Sanctuary Suite with an unrivalled cityscape view, and more. We had the chance of viewing one of its 18 Signature Sky Retreat rooms that overlooks the imposing Petronas Twin Towers or KL Tower. The majestic vista can be viewed from the comfort of your king-sized bed or the oversized soaking tub.

Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur isn’t short on dining options. Located on level 53, Altitude offers a laidback environment for a morning cuppa, casual afternoon tea session or light lunches. For something heartier, seafood and grill restaurant Horizon Grill on level 58 allows you to feast on executive lunches and premium steaks indoors or al fresco at the roof terrace. When the sun drops in the sky, drink in the view at the rooftop bar Vertigo or lounge away near the pool area with a tipple.

Of course, Banyan Tree’s award-winning spa treatments are not to be missed. Like the tropical and sacred trees from which the brand got its name, the Banyan Tree spa is an oasis to renew the senses. Using a ‘high-touch, low-tech’ approach that emphasises the human touch, the treatments focus on traditional Asian healing therapies as well as natural ingredients and aromatic oils to elevate your pampering experience.
