Alila Bangsar | Alila Hotels & Resorts Expands Into Kuala Lumpur
Set to open on 17 May 2018, Alila Bangsar is elevated above the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur’s most vibrant and cosmopolitan district.
The hotel, which is the group’s first property in Malaysia, is a modern, urban retreat that combines a haven for relaxation with a lively city vibe and world-class restaurant and bars. Occupying the top floors of a mixed-use development known as The Establishment, Alila Bangsar celebrates Alila Hotel & Resorts signature charms and is set to be an instant destination for local urbanites and international travelers alike.
Meticulously designed by internationally renowned duo Lyndon Neri & Rossana Hu, the hotels 143 guestrooms balance privacy and streams of natural light with rooftop views of the Kuala Lumpur skyline. A dedicated butler service in the Alila Living Room located on every guestroom floor with free-flowing refreshments throughout the day ensures a highly-personalized level of guest service. Perched on level 41, guests will find a sky level lobby leading to a pool on level 40 with natural light where they can unwind amidst tropical-style landscaping, luxurious loungers with city views that create an oasis for relaxation.
Also on level 41 is French restaurant Entier, an avant-garde approach to fine dining. At the forefront of Kuala Lumpur’s new food order, Entier celebrates nose to tail dining – where every part of the animal or vegetable is used. Chef Masashi Hirouchi is the mastermind behind Entier who was the Chef at the 2 Michelin-starred L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon in London for five years. The hotel’s bars have been conceptualized by Proof & Company, an award-winning collective of Asia’s most respected bartenders and advocates of curated, artisanal spirits, renowned for creations that have become fixtures on the World’s 50 Best Bars List.
Sustainability is one of the pillars of Alila Hotels & Resorts and in Alila Bangsar several initiatives have been implemented across the hotel such as the IPTV technology which allows guests to access destination & facilities information on their TV and the creation of nature friendly E-Zones for guests to enjoy and limiting the use of paper. A Press Reader app will be available to all guests which will allow access to any magazine and newspaper directly from a mobile phone or tablet as well as e-check-in via an iPad and paperless invoicing.
As with all Alila Hotels & Resorts, the destination is at the heart of the Alila Experience. Kuala Lumpur is an extraordinary and adventurous city to explore and a dedicated team is on hand to create personalized Alila moments and memories.
