Kuala Lumpur certainly has no shortage of luxury hotels, but if you’re like me and traveling to the city with children, staying at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur was my top choice. Many thanks to The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur for partnering with us.
Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle district, this property is exactly where you want to be. The new Lobby Lounge is a truly elegant and refined space on the first floor, with marble floors and stylish furnishings crowned by a gold-leafed ceiling, the ideal place for an afternoon of light conversations or even business discussions.
As one might expect from a hotel of this caliber, check-in was a breeze. We were offered a 3-Bedroom Suite, which was extremely luxurious and spacious. Our suite had stunning views of the Menara tower as well as the city. The large living room, with separate dining and living area, was ideal for our family of four. The bathroom is pretty too, with lots of marble, a separate shower, plush towels and Asprey amenities. As a note, butler service was easily available with the touch of a button.
I would certainly encourage you to stay in a suite if you are traveling with your family. There is a myriad of choices available with up to 3-bedrooms, full kitchens, a separate living room and the like. The Club Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur was quite impressive. While hotel lounges usually bill themselves as offering light refreshments, this Club Lounge serves full-on meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Cocktail hour is popular here too, with delicious appetizers to accompany the drinks. I am a huge fan of club level rooms for the added value that it offers, so you may want to see if booking a room or suite with The Ritz-Carlton Club privileges is worthwhile, especially when visiting Kuala Lumpur with children.
Rest assured that the food at The Ritz-Carlton’s Cobalt Room is truly excellent. Truly. Breakfast especially is beautifully presented and it offers a great variety of local and international flavors. The Library is the hotel’s signature restaurant and definitely a place to have dinner. The exquisitely crafted Menu Du Jour on Sundays offer a signature roast featured with a beautiful culinary spread and free flow champagne and wine. I must insist you visit as well! The Afternoon Tea, a signature Ritz-Carlton, is definitely at the top of my list. I’m certainly not the only person to say this. It’s lovely. Check back for a full review of our afternoon tea experience on a separate blog post.
A surprise amenity at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur was its swimming pools. In addition to the main pool available to all guests of the hotel, the Spa Village pool offers a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere for guests at the spa. Furthermore, the Spa Village offers a mix of the world’s most sophisticated therapies integrated with healing practices of the region, such as the “Sensory Sound Bath“.
If you’re staying in a room or suite with Club Lounge access, you can enjoy complimentary drop-offs anywhere within the Golden Triangle district in the hotel’s Maserati. This is and of itself a mini-adventure for the kids.
The few days spent at this outstanding property were a treat. All of the service staff treated me and my family with respect and kindness. The Ritz-Carlton product has been consistently high-quality regardless of location. The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur property exceeded my expectations and provided quality lifelong memories. My stay was flawless and therefore I can highly recommend you to stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur!

My boys went nuts when they saw this lovely chocolate tray with berries and macaroons on our dining room table at the end of the day. Clearly a lot of hard work was put into this and I really would like to thank The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur staff for making such nice surprise for me and my family! Also, I’d like to thank them for the delicious brownies and champagne that appeared later in the evening on a daily basis. It definitely put a smile in our faces. Very well done Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur, great service!
