The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur


A national heritage site that combines colonial charm with luxurious and contemporary touches.

The moment you enter the grand lobby, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. Oozing a colonial vibe, the Majestic is a rare find in a city hotel, as this original, fully-restored five-storey building is backed by a 15-storey modern tower – blending old and new. Touches of the past are preserved in the Reading Room, Cigar Room, Drawing Room and Truefitt & Hill barbers. The Smoke House embodies the decadence of the 1930s, and other facilities include a lounge, bar, card room, screening room, bespoke tailor and a private dining room with a private chef. The hotel also has a swimming pool and spa.

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 Cafe where you can taste traditional cuisine from the colonial era.

You can find the hotel’s rooms and suites in the historic Majestic Wing and the modern Tower Wing. The Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites of the Tower Wing have gorgeous views of either the city skyline, the hotel gardens or one of Kuala Lumpur’s heritage sites. Housed in the Majestic Wing, the luxurious Colonial Suites have an elegant and charming feel in a classic art deco setting.
