Review: The St. Regis (Deluxe Room) – Kuala Lumpur

Yes, back at it again in Kuala Lumpur.

Now, this hotel really defines what luxury is, from the exterior to the service, everything is top notch. I wouldn’t say everything is perfect cause that’s unrealistic thinking but having low expectations for such a fancy place really put me in awe. For someone who loves minimalism, the exterior is already stunning, who would’ve thought a boxy cube of a building could be so pleasing.

Located in No 6, Jalan Stesen Sentral 2, KL Sentral, the location is ideal for business travellers as the train station (KL Sentral) connects you to the airport directly via KLIA Express. It’s not directly connected to the hotel but complimentary shuttle is provided which is a plus for me, and with the new MRT (Sungei Buloh-Kajang Line), the hotel is just an approximate two-minutes walk from the station.

Complimentary Hotel Shuttle

Marbles on marbles everywhere – the interior just screams luxury. Alighting from the shuttle, welcoming doorman at your service. Forget the traditional way of standing during check-in, here you get to sit down at the front desk – complete with welcome drinks & cold towel to freshen up. Dedicated butler will personally bring you to your room. Although my room was located on a higher floor, the view was not that great. I believe this is because I chose a twin deluxe room.

ROOM

Deluxe Twin Room

This is the largest normal deluxe room I’ve ever stayed in & the largest guest room in Kuala Lumpur. It’s super huge, it sort of felt like I’m in a studio condo unit. It had a vanity area, a huge marble bathroom, a not-so-little living room area, and two beds.

I’m gonna start off with the bed and let me tell you, it’s enormous and high that I didn’t want to get up! But I had to explore the room, there are controls near the bed to control the lights – ok normal but there are also controls to control the sheers and curtains, that’s beyond extra and I’m living for it! Moving on to the minibar, again extra, the entire cupboard mimics a luggage and coffee/tea machines serving you TWG tea.

Next, the vanity area. If you for whatever reason don’t want to sleep on the bed, you can definitely sleep here – put some mattresses in there, pillows in there and I guarantee you that it can accommodate at least a child & an adult (please don’t try lol). It is that big and that’s only for the vanity/luggage area.

Marble Bathroom

My favourite part of the room, the bathroom. Marble floorings and walls with a huge mirror, bathtub with tv, separate showers, double sinks, automated toilet. Why lift up the toilet seat yourself when you can stand in front of it and it lifts it up for you. Then, there are controls to wash your bottom and dry them, not to mention the toilet seat is heated! I also requested a bubble bath after swimming and it was promptly received. Amenities provided were their signature, Remede.

So after exploring the room, I decided to go out and when I came back, the turndown service was set. The bed was made, curtains were drawn, slippers by the bed, bottled water on the bedside table and three different chocolates were served every night. As you know, at any St. Regis, butler services are available. I didn’t get a chance to meet my assigned butler, probably I was too busy going crazy with the room, but I ordered hot chocolate every night (complimentary coffee/tea service) and it arrived less than 10 minutes without fail.

FACILITIES

Swimming Pool

Yes, this hotel obviously has a gym & spa but if you don’t know by now, the only facility I prioritised is the swimming pool. There are 2 swimming pool, one for the residences and the other for the hotel guests. The pool for the residences is a lap sized pool while the hotel guests’ is smaller with a step to sit on with a gigantic TV that would be pulled out at night (which sadly I didn’t get a chance to see). Upon entering the pool area, towels are already provided on the lounge chair and the pool attendant would welcome you and ask if you needed anything. The pool view overlooks the nearby forest and if you go to the edge, you can see the KL Tower & Petronas Twin Towers.

DINING

Breakfast at The Brasserie

Since I opt for the breakfast, I would rather say it’s average. Maybe due to its minimalism everywhere, the breakfast spread was too. Even though I only stayed for 2 nights, I got bored by the spread. It serves mostly Western and a few Malay/Chinese cuisine like Nasi Lemak. You can order a la carte food and beverages but that’s the only thing that stands out. Since the decor was superb and appealing, I would give the dining experience a 3.8/5.

OVERALL

There are times where you just in need of a pampering experience and this right here delivers it. From the gigantic rooms to the modern-luxury decor, you wouldn’t want to leave this place. Not to mention the direct connectivity to the MRT – Muzium Negara station and the daily shuttle to and fro KL Sentral. The butler service was also splendid with them catering to your needs.
