Photos: inside Malaysia's new luxe St. Regis Kuala Lumpur hotel

Joining Kuala Lumpur’s bustling skyline, the new St. Regis Kuala Lumpur hotel provides luxurious lodgings in the centre of the city: quite literally, two blocks from the KL Sentral railway station.

Not only can you ditch the traffic and be here in 28 minutes from the airport via the non-stop KLIA Ekspres train, but the five-star feel begins from the moment you walk through the door with an artistic and upmarket lobby…

… followed by expansive views from the property’s 208 rooms, either of Kuala Lumpur’s largest park: the Lake Gardens, or the National Museum and Houses of Parliament.

Each room and suite takes its inspiration from a high-end Manhattan apartment, with walk-in wardrobes in each and opulent lighting fixtures in the hotel’s suites, ranging from stylish curves in the lounge rooms…

… through to tiered chandeliers in the John Jacob Astor Suite:

Also on-hand: the signature St. Regis Butler Service which provides guests with “discreet, personalised and anticipatory attention”, including complimentary unpacking, daily pressing and packing for your departure, along with an in-room morning coffee and tea service.

Beyond tea and coffee, you can also indulge at one of six restaurant and bar venues including Taka by Sushi Saito by renowned chef Takashi Saito; Ginza Tenkuni, which heroes Edo-style tempura; The Brasserie for a European café experience…

… but also transforming into a contemporary French-Mediterranean bistro in the evening; The Crystal rooftop bar for cocktails and Champagne; The Drawing Room for afternoon tea; and The Astor Bar and Decanter, serving cocktails and carefully-selected wines by the house sommelier:

In their downtime, guests can unwind with a range of treatments at the Iridium Spa or can utilise the fitness centre, yoga room and outdoor swimming pool during the stay.

The property’s tie-up with the Starwood Preferred Guest loyalty program allows for earning and redeeming Starpoints, extending also to new St. Regis properties opening throughout 2016 including in the Maldives, Changsha and Cairo.

Looks stunning but with rates from MYR1000 as opening specials it needs to be.

Still very cheap if you compare it to Singapore rates.

For anyone who could drop AUD470 (roughly) on a meal, they've got Taka by Sushi Saito on site.
