Friday 19th, was invited to The Royale Chulan Night of Appreciation for Airlines & Travel Agent. Been looking for this moment since this hotel had its soft opening in February 2009. We were told on the concept of this new hotel is built with Malaysian Heritage architecture and distiction it has to offer.
While other 5 stars hotels commonly flaunt the millennium concept of urban chic, minimalist and zen atmosphere, The Royale Chulan proudly capture the concept of an opulence royal palace in every corner of the 4th hotel under Bousted Holdings’s property development in hotel operations.
Located next to Malaysian National Trust and Karyaneka Craft Complex, between 5 – 15 minutes walk from KL luxurious shopping hub such as Pavillion, Star Hill Gallery and Lot10, this new hallmark never fails to wow us even the embellishment hasn’t gone through the final touch up.
The air of fresh paints lingers as we walked through the white alley which lead us to their magnificent rooms which currently operating on 50% of their total 300 deluxe and suites. The hotel also have 102 well appointed service apartments and studios for longer staying guests.
Initially I was trying to picture the look of the rooms and the entire property, I cant help it by having Hotel Istana projected into my mind. Until.. I was so wrong.
One of the Fine Dining restaurant in The Royale Chulan, called “Bunga Emas” (Gold Flower) offers its guest the experience of traditional malay dining style which is “makan bersila” in one of its private dining area.
Ya it looks like Japanese style, but the food are totally different.
This is coffee house called Warisan Cafe. A buffet restaurant with a breathtaking terrace.
It is a huge property and it has it’s own small river stream in man made garden, Taman Sari.
When I was walking out from Warisan Cafe to this Taman Sari, I passed by a beautiful sitting area which turned me into Alice in Wonderland.
The surroundings is sooo white until I unable to open my eyes.
To the pool area.
Everything is so grande and I wish I was the one who win the lucky draw of 2days 1 night stay at The Royale Chulan Executive Suite. sad.
After finished with hotel tour, we headed to the Heritage Club & Cigar Lounge for the cocktails and entertainment.
Then now that I noticed that along this time I have a very handsome boss (no, the guy in checkers shirt not my boss, I mean the other one). Not just handsome, but very considerate one ler.
