There's a decent bench for sleeping as you head down towards the bus stop :p

Wasn't aware that the MH lounge had a limit on the number of hours.

I would suggest the Sama-Sama Express airside hotel. You have already saved $600 and are flying business so pay the $130 and have a good sleep, ready for your onwards journey. You can still eat and drink in the MH lounge as you’ll have a boarding pass.

I organized a long layover for my dad, about seven hours. The closest fun thing to do is sepang and it’s awesome little go cart track. He had great time doing laps between flights. With 13 hours you can easily head into the city. If you’re not trying to sleep in one of the airside hotels, then I’d get out of the airport.

There is also the option of sleeping in the capsule hotel at KLIA2 for around $30 if you want a bed for the whole night.

I've stayed at Tune Hotel and can attest that it's worth the price. Almost identical in room size and layout to an Ibis, and cost me about $90. A good night's sleep, a shower, then a bowl of laksa nearby made for a most enjoyable 12 hour layover.

Get the bus into KL Sentral, stay at a cheap hotel in Brickfields and enjoy the food! Lots of options!
