The doors to one of Kuala Lumpur’s most anticipated hotels opened this month with the unveiling of Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara, the brand’s first hotel in Malaysia. Located in the heart of affluent Damansara Heights, the luxurious 312-room Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara is part of an 8.5-acre integrated development by GuocoLand, comprising two luxury condominium blocks, two corporate office towers, the hotel and a lifestyle mall.
Designed by Wilson Associates, the hotel’s interior blends local heritage with a sophisticated feature wall depicting the country’s Wau Bulan otherwise known as the moon kite with French art vivre through an Eiffel Tower artwork. Stunning art-pieces and sculptures were specially created for the hotel paying homage to the rich Malaysian and French heritage and culture.
Ranging from 43 to 105 square metres, the guestrooms feature the signature bedding concept by MyBed™, wifi and a selection of premium in-room amenities by Lanvin and Hermès. Guests staying in suites will have access to the Club Millésime executive lounge, which offers spectacular views of the city’s skyline and provides exclusive services including complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments, evening cocktails and more.
Home to five restaurants and bars, the signature all-day dining restaurant Kwee Zeen serves Pan-Asian cuisine while the Chinese restaurant Wan Chun Ting, which translates as Ten Thousand Springs pavilion, offers authentic Cantonese and Imperial cuisine with intricate fabrics, fine embroidery and gold damask velvet. Boasting four private dining rooms with plush furnishings, the restaurant features a sophisticated blend of east meets west décor with elements of Chinese-inspired silhouettes and traditional art pieces. Enjoy a selection of French wines and afternoon tea at Le Bar or relish authentic French cuisine at the casual French Riviera-inspired restaurant, Nizza. The hotel also offers a Nespresso lounge and TWG fine teas.
For conventions, weddings, and corporate events, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara boasts six meeting rooms including a pillar-less 1,100 square metre ‘Wau Bulan’ Ballroom that can accommodate up to 800 guests.
