A national heritage site that mixes the best of the past with the finest modern amenities.
The moment that you enter the grand lobby of this hotel, it’s as if you have stepped back in time. Exuding a colonial atmosphere, the Majestic is a rare find in a city hotel, with the original fully-restored five-storey hotel backed by a 15-storey modern tower. The hotel’s blend of old and new means that during a stay here, you get the best of both worlds.
The hotel’s amenities include a swimming pool, gym and spa, whilst 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, while other facilities include a lounge, bar, card room, screening room, bespoke tailor and a private dining room with a private chef.
Dining at the hotel echoes the delicate balance of the nostalgic with the contemporary. The Orchid Conservatory showcases a hanging garden and ‘orchidscape’ within a glass atrium, and you can enjoy an intimate Afternoon Tea in truly unique surrounds. Meanwhile, the Tea Lounge offers the perfect alternative, with English Afternoon Tea served with a Malaysian twist. Contago is a favourite amongst guests with Western, Chinese, Japanese, Malay and Thai cuisine all made to order. If you are after a truly authentic experience, head to the Colonial Cafe where classical cuisine is served from the colonial era.
The hotel’s rooms and suites are found both in the historic Majestic Wing and the contemporary Tower Wing. The Deluxe Rooms, Junior Suites and Grand Suites of the Tower Wing feature luxury modern furnishings with views of either the city skyline, the hotel gardens, or one of Kuala Lumpur’s heritage sites. Housed in the older Majestic Wing, the wonderful restored Colonial Suites exude colonial charm in a classic art deco setting.
Opposite the city’s Moorish railway station and just a few steps from the many of Kuala Lumpur’s main attractions including the National Mosque and the National Museum.
