Kuala Lumpur

The Royalty worthy St. Regis, Kuala Lumpur.

This fabulous new hotel is KL’s best, its so good that the King of Bahrain and The King of Malaysia were guests here during my stay. The hotel has featured many times on SPG Hot Escapes however I managed to get a greater deal over the phone whilst touring Singapore some days prior.

The Booking.

SPG has many many different specials, the Platinum line agent alerted me to a buy 4 get 2 free special working out to be a super low Zar 1700 per night. Game set. Game on.

We were collected at a designated meeting point by St. Regis for transfer to the hotel after flying in from JHB. To be honest I did not know what to expect, I did not even know this was a new hotel as I been banking on using Double Tree with HH points for years leading up to this trip.

The Hotel.

The Lobby.

Red carpet laid out for Royalty with their flags hung at entrance.

The Upgrade.

Wow and wow. Whilst checking in I inquired about the best as a Platinum SPG as Royal and Presidential were taken by the Kings, I was offered the amazing Caroline Astor Suite. This was to be my best upgrade of all during 2017 travels. I have no idea of the per night rate, you may check it on SPG.com ( or soon to be merged to marriott.com )

You get passages then you get St. Regis Passages.

Top end suites always have a separate door to close

The extra privacy space could fit a standard room in.


The Suite.

This is the time you get that ‘ I need to extend my stay’ feeling.

Entrance guest restroom, common in suites.

The enormous living room. Best of everything.

This Caroline Astor is a one bed suite.

The Dressing Room.

Most spacious one yet.

Luggage racks adorn each side with clothing rails.

The Bathroom.

This was the first stay I had that came with a fully automated loo, forget the word luxury this is a necessity, nothing will ever clean better after 5 minutes leaving you with that ‘ I feel like doing a marathon now’ type of healthiness after. If you encountered one of these, you will know what I’m talking about.

Advice: heat, full power ahead. Everything including drying is automatic.

Watch TV with a view.

The spa room.. in the suite ? say what?

Another first in my travels:

After work time its massage time with no more than 20 steps away from my office.

The Butler Service.

24 hour butler service, including complimentary tea and coffer as well as unpack and hang service. Id say this is a first again, whilst we had a butler service before in the very first TL trip in 2012 to Maldives by basically housekeeping, however it was never this professional as St. Regis prides themselves on.

Our butlers bringing midnight tea and hot choc with cookies.

Anna, The nicest butler in the world.


More of our butlers cleaning up before lunch.

Platinum perk: 4 complimentary laundry pieces per day. Such a blessing if you on the road (or air) endlessly.

The Breakfast.

Very personalised, buffet as well as A’la Carte Items, complimentary for Platinum Elite SPG members.

Always my second course choice.

I would recommend the app Klook for things to do ( you score some points too) and the app: Grab for transport.
