YTL unveils a majestic property in Kuala Lumpur

THE HISTORICAL Hotel Majestic in the Malaysian capital city, which was refurbished by YTL Hotels, celebrated its grand opening last Saturday.

Having restored Hotel Majestic to its former splendour, Kuala Lumpur now boasts an iconic and historical property comparable with Singapore’s Raffles Hotel and Hong Kong’s The Peninsula, said YTL Corporation managing director, Francis Yeoh Sock Ping, during his opening address.

Nestled in a five-storey neoclassical building dating back to 1932, the 300-room property features new wings and modern facilities at its Jalan Sutan Hishamuddin location, opposite an old railway station in the historical quarter of Kuala Lumpur.

The original building houses suites, The Colonial Café, The Bar and The Tea Lounge, while the new 15-storey Tower Wing comprises 16 meeting rooms, a pillarless ballroom which can accommodate 1,200 people in banquet style, a gym and a swimming pool. The seven-room Majestic Spa is located in a separate wing, and The Smoke House, a two-storey building, boasts a lounge, a grooming room, a cigar room, a private dining area with a chef on call, a screening room and a card room.

Said Ally Bhoonee, executive director of World Avenues Travel & Tours: “The Majestic Hotel is definitely a jewel for Kuala Lumpur, which is in great need of a super luxury hotel with a grand history. It will definitely attract the upper middle class clientele who loves history, old colonial charm and luxury.”

Yap Sook Ling, managing director, Asian Overland Services Tours & Travel, agreed: “It’s good to have a grand dame hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Its illustrious history can offer something special for MICE groups.”
