With three on-site restaurants and bars, guests will also be able to experience exceptional food and beverage programs including: a signature restaurant, and a skyline-level bar and restaurant. Grounded in mindfulness, the hotel will provide luxurious wellness offerings including a six-treatment room spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and a swimming pool with city views of Kuala Lumpur.
