Bukit Bintang is the heart of Kuala Lumpur. A shopping paradise for many travelers around the region. Easily pack with at least 6 shopping malls along the stretch. Not only that, hotel chains flocks around the area as the latest hotel that establish just right to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur is Pavilion Hotel. The hotel just opened its door to public for less than 6 months.


Pavilion Hotel (1)

One of a convenient hotel that sits right in the same building as the mall. An excess direct into the mall which allow guest to move around easily. Hotel Guest can stroll all the way to KLCC in the close covered walkway. Just 10 minutes walk instead of taking a cab.

Pavilion Hotel (3)

Guest will need to head to their lobby at level 8 and serve with a welcome drink. Checking in is smooth and will need to prepare RM 150 as a refundable security deposit. Checking in was swift and guided to my floor at level 9.

Pavilion Hotel (4)

Love this luxury room walkway and realize that different floors have different carpet design. To make it more interesting, I realize that to identify the room area, just look at the plaster ceiling. The ceiling with lights, that is where the room doors are.

For the night, we enjoy ourselves in this ….. menu

Pavilion Hotel (26)

Pavilion Hotel (27)

The star highlight of the dish is this Chawan Mushi  It is a recommended item.. Prepared with crab meat and salmon roe. Pack with flavour. You can taste the sweetness of the crabmeat with salmon roe that burst in your mouth that give you hint of saltiness to balance it up, yet the egg custard is smooth and airy..

Pavilion Hotel (28)

For ice cream, usually I will try others flavours over the classic green tea. Their Sesame and … is a rockstar. Refreshing and love the toasted mild burnt sesame taste.

Pavilion Hotel (30)

Before calling off a night, we head down to their cocktail bar Whisky Cove at level 7M for a drink.

Pavilion Hotel (34)

A cozy bar that is just nice, not too big and best of all they have a few rooms and corners that you can hide off from the crowd that give you good space of privacy. Of course sitting in the bar is the perfect spot to be.

Pavilion Hotel (31)

Not a fan of cocktails but I am impress with this mixologist as his mix of flavours is well balance and you can taste each layer of flavour that being created. The funny part is, beer here is more expensive than the cocktails. Certainly do not mind to come here again for the cocktails.

In line with the trend, more hotels are now serving afternoon tea. The latest that I have tried is in this newly open hotel in Kuala Lumpur – Altitude at Banyan Tree and Residence in the heart of Bukit Bintang. Sitting high up at level 53 is one of a main selling point that you get to enjoy the skyline view of our busy city. Not to mention over looking both KL Tower and Petronas Twin Tower.

Altitude (3)

Step into their sky lobby and walking thru a small lane that lead to Altitude and to be amaze by the luxury of space. Love the high ceiling that give you an comfort space and each seating area is segmentize with wall to give you some privacy in between other diners or tea lovers.

At the price of RM 88+ per pax, I think it is quite reasonable for the kind of item that they are serving, with great ambiance and not to mention the view of KLCC skyline.

Do note that it is facing evening sun and it could get warm in the evening. Do request to turn down the blind to block the sunlight till to remain the last panel of glass for your landscape viewing pleasure.
