Malaysia has long been celebrated for its tropical jungles, steamy climate, unusual wildlife and idyllic islands, but now its capital city is on the rise thanks to a series of new hotel openings.

Located in the city’s buzzy Golden Triangle neighbourhood, with lush views over KLCC Park, the the 209-room Four Seasons property can be found in a sleek mixed-use skyscraper designed by local firm NRY Architects. Without straying from the brand’s MO for understated luxury, global firm Wilson Associates layered the guestrooms with tactile leather details, double layered curtains and textured wallpaper in muted grey tones that don’t detract from the views.

Three of the six bars and restaurants have been outfitted by Hong Kong-based AB Concept, who brought the outside in with lots of natural light and floral motifs, particularly at Yun House, where chef Jimmy Wong’s double-boiled black garlic and sea whelk soup is a must-try.§
