Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur

A spa-like sanctuary in Malaysia’s capital

Crowning the top floors of one of Kuala Lumpur’s gleaming mixed-use towers, Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur has all the making of a relaxing resort with the convenient location of a city hotel. Set in the Golden Triangle — the city’s major shopping, entertainment and businesses district — the urban retreat boasts a perfect location for leisure and corporate travelers alike.

The 55 rooms and suites are beautifully appointed with sumptuous silk throw pillows, lounge areas and either an oversized soaking tub or a relaxation pool. Promising floor-to-ceiling windows, every room frames the skyline. Some also showcase the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, the antenna-like Kuala Lumpur Tower and abstract Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.

While the city buzzes outside your window, the hotel feels incredibly tranquil with hushed hallways, soothing scents and a sumptuous spa. The energy turns up in the hotel’s dining outlets, which includes the city’s highest rooftop bar, the 59th-floor Vertigo, and brasserie-style Horizon Grill just a floor below.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • The most breathtaking feature of Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is Vertigo, where you can enjoy refreshing cocktails, wine and single-malts with the skyline as a backdrop.The in-room views are fantastic, too. Thanks to the hotel’s location in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, you can see several of the city’s most important architectural landmarks like the Petronas Towers from the comfort of your king-sized bed.
  • The views extend into the stunning bathrooms, where you can soak up the skyline from a bubbling bath or relaxation pool, depending on which room type you choose.
  • Offering a “sanctuary for the senses,” Banyan Tree Spa Kuala Lumpur takes a traditional Asian approach to healing the mind and body. Look forward to aromatherapy oils, herbal compresses, kneading techniques and calming baths.
  • Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is in an unbeatable location, with many of the top landmarks within easy walking distance. Plus, the Kuala Lumpur Sentral station is right outside your door.

Things to Know

  • Be sure to budget some time from the airport. It’s about one hour by car — if traffic is kind. By comparison, public transit takes roughly 30 minutes on the KLIA Express followed by a 10-minute taxi ride from KL Sentral station.
  • The Kuala Lumpur hotel is right across from award-winning Pavilion Shopping Mall. You can also walk all the way to the Petronas Twin Towers without stepping outside thanks to a series of connecting corridors and skybridges.
  • The massage therapists at Banyan Tree Spa Kuala Lumpur have undergone a minimum of 250 hours of training at Banyan Tree Spa Academy, so you can be sure the treatments here are divine.
  • If you fall in love with the spa’s signature scents and amenities, you can take some home with you at the Banyan Tree Gallery shop.
  • Banyan Tree Kuala Lumpur is one of the most eco-friendly properties in the city. It eschews plastics whenever possible, minimizes electricity consumption and supports local communities through waste clean-up programs, tree-planting events and educational initiatives.

The Rooms

  • Staring from 549 square feet, the rooms have a clean and contemporary vibe. They’re mostly white and neutral tones, offset by bright pops of color from silk throw pillows and watercolors on the walls.
  • Dubbed Banyan Retreats, entry-level rooms include a pillow menu and lots of handy bedside plugs, a well-stocked mini bar and a Toto smart toilet. But the main event is the bathroom, where a deep-soak tub overlooks the city.
  • The Sky Suite is one of the most opulent stays in the luxury hotel. It’s 667 square feet of pure luxury, from a walk-in closet to a spacious living area, almond-shaped tub and a chromotherapy shower to help you unwind.
  • Still, the jewel in the crown is the Banyan Tree Suite. This 3,369-square-foot palace in the clouds has its own private living room, double-height windows, dining room and a private relaxation pool. If you’re traveling with friends or family, ask about adding a connecting room so you all can stretch out even more.

The Restaurants

  • Don’t miss the hotel’s à la carte breakfast at the 58th-floor Horizon Grill, which hits the spot every time. For lunch and dinner, the brasserie-style eatery turns its focus to surf and turf — albeit with innovative Malaysian flair. And, on sunny days, don’t miss a chance to dine or unwind on the alfresco terrace.
  • Just one floor up is Vertigo. The rooftop bar is as chic and lofty as it sounds, serving bespoke cocktails, Southeast Asian tapas, premium wines and DJ beats. The dress code is smart casual, so leave your sandals and flip flops in the hotel room.
  • For a laid-back meal, afternoon tea or light bites, Altitude offers a loungey space for casual catch-ups. You’ll feel at peace in the pretty surroundings: a leaf-like bronze light installation glitters above the long marble bar, while comfortable armchairs line floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • And if you’re just craving a quick bite to or from the day’s activities, swing by Bake by Banyan Tree in the lobby for steamy coffee and fresh pastries.
  • No matter which venue you choose, wine lovers will appreciate the in-house sommelier who will ensure you’re drinking something special at every meal.
