Home Travel Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur Room Review


“Have you gone for your honeymoon yet?”

“How’s married life?”

“When are you having kids?”

So we got married…a year after he popped the question. Within that year, we were both busy with work and planning our wedding. After the wedding, we went straight back to work and only had a mini vacation in February 2012. I always feel happier and refreshed after a vacation, especially if the hotel room is nice and cosy.

Our getaway nest…

Spacious and bright

View from our room! Nice right??

Our recent getaway was in Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur, where we stayed at the deluxe suite overlooking the view of KL city. Prior to this, the only contact I had with the hotel was when I parked my car at the basement and crossed the road to Zouk. Checking in was a breeze – the staff were friendly and efficient. The lobby had a contemporary boutique-like feel; high ceiling, marble walls and warm colours.

Coffee machine

Chilled drinks (chargeable)

Coffee, tea or me?

Our deluxe suite came equipped with the usual amenities and more – I liked the coffee machine provided. The bathroom is connected to the (sort of) walk-in wardrobe and natural soaps including bath salt are available. I settled in quite immediately. Wine glasses are also available which was perfect as we brought along a bottle of bubbly.

Natural soaps

Walk-in wardrobe…sort of

Wi-Fi is provided so you can surf the net all day long without worrying about the additional charges. The bed was large and plushy with a pillow menu for the fussy sleeper. You have a choice of feather, non allergic, bolster, buckwheat and hollow fill pillow. I’m generally a heavy sleeper so any comfortable bed will do. All I need is my bantal busuk two fluffy pillows. Heh!

Mirrors everywhere!

Hotel Maya’s swimming pool is located on Level 3, indoor. It is said to be the only heated hydrotherapy pool in Kuala Lumpur where you can enjoy a ‘massage’ from the water jets. Alternatively, you can go for a more extensive massage at Anggun Spa, which I will be writing about shortly. After such a hectic week, it was a damn good massage. I got rid of so many ‘knots’.

Sky Lounge (inside)

Chocolate brownie

The Sky Lounge on Level 13 offers hotel guests a selection of petit fours with a choice of coffee or tea between 9 to 11pm. I thought they were pretty decent, especially the brownie – moist and rich. Also noteworthy were the assorted cookies, with my favourite being the cornflakes. If you’re there early, you get to sit outside and enjoy the view (and breeze if you’re lucky). Unfortunately, we got to Level 13 at close to 10pm so we settled for the plush sofa seats inside.

Crumbly, light and buttery!

Wines are available

Coffee…and some quiet time

Huge bathtub!

Room service was a breeze. While we didn’t order anything to eat, our request for a bucket of ice arrived within 10 minutes. The bathtub was big enough to fit two adults and I totally dig the shower ceiling. Better water pressure. :)

Cheese selection

Good pastries. Better than the ones from a famous bakery on Jalan Delima.

Cakes and kuih

Fruits to start the day!

rif’s omelette with extra cheese

Tomato and orange juice

Sunny side up

Sourdough and wholemeal bread. With salted butter. Yum…

The breakfast spread at Maya Brasserie was simple but of high quality. There was a selection of cheeses, healthy cereals, juices, three types of milk, local food, western food, pastries, good breads and an egg station. On top of that, we got to choose a main course from the menu provided. I ordered the Monte Cristo and rif, the lamb murtabak.

Good pastries

Scrambled egg, ham, sausage and alfalfa sprouts

Monte Cristo

Mmmmm…. :)

My Monte Cristo was a gooey-rich combination of turkey ham, cheese, mayonnaise and sandwich bread, dipped in egg batter and deep-fried till golden brown on the outside. If I ate this every day, I would go from size 24 to size 42 in a few months! The lamb murtabak was nothing to shout about. I found the filling scant and the skin was a tad chewy. That said, I liked the accompanying curry chicken – thick, aromatic and spicy.

Lamb Murtabak

During breakfast, I couldn’t help but notice how particular the head chef was about quality and presentation. He kept coming out of the central kitchen to arrange the (slightly) crooked plates, check if the breads were properly cut and kept, and whether there was enough pastries for the guests. #perfectionist

View from our bed

After breakfast, we snuggled in bed and watched Gossip Girls until it was time to check out. Our stay at Hotel Maya Kuala Lumpur was short but it relaxing, rejuvenating and peaceful. Just what we needed – a break from the hustle and bustle (and stress) of city life.
