Located along the city’s historical mile, this iconic 1930s doll has enjoyed a nifty little nip/tuck since its pre-war glamour days, recently regaining its 5-star status as one of Kuala Lumpur’s most luxe stays.
Take your pick from a plush selection of pads (all with 24hr butler service) over two compounds: the exclusive Majestic Wing in the original hotel building sports 47 suites with a meticulous, clean-lined Art Deco finish, while the Tower Wing has a whopping 253 guestrooms with sparkly vistas and a modern-meets-heritage vibe.
Ladies can indulge in a post-retail pamper session at the opulent Majestic Spa and pool, then saunter down to flower bower The Orchid Conservatory for afternoon tea under a glass atrium, and gents can stay trim with an onsite barber, bespoke tailoring services, and a cards n’ cigar den. Looking fab, your Maj!
