The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur 

Art Deco ambience and modern elegance

Luxury touches and colonial charm on a national heritage site overlooking the iconic Moorish Revival railway station.

A hotel with a glamorous high society past, The Majestic is just as splendid today. Among many nods to 1930s style are a grand lobby, a cigar room and a Truefitt & Hill barbershop. Take a dip in the fourth-floor outdoor pool, sip vintage-inspired cocktails in an elegant lounge and relax in the spa with a blackberries and cream scrub.

Why we love The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

  • Lavish afternoon tea in The Orchid Conservatory surrounded by vibrant blooms.

  • Contemporary Contango restaurant with its open kitchen and Churrasco grill.

  • That first Singapore Sling under the gold leafed dome of the 1930s bar.

  • Deluxe Rooms in the modern Tower Wing come with fantastic Kuala Lumpur city views.

The Orchid Conservatory showcases a hanging garden and ‘orchidscape’ within a glass atrium, so you can enjoy an intimate afternoon tea in a unique space. Alternatively, tuck into English afternoon tea with a Malaysian twist at the Tea Lounge. Contango is a favourite of ours, with open kitchens serving western, Chinese, Japanese, Malay and Thai cuisine. If you are after a truly authentic experience, head to the Colonial Café where you can taste traditional cuisine from the colonial era.

Watch the chefs in the interactive food stations at Contango. There are plenty of international options from pizzas straight from the oven to Asian favourites.
