Staycations are one of my favourite things to indulge in every now and then – you leave home in pursuit of a getaway to relax and rejuvenate. Plus, there’s something incredibly satisfying about waking up in a nice hotel room with breakfast. At least for me. :)
Jien and I recently stayed at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur where the Grand Twin Tower Suite was home for two nights. If I’m not mistaken, the view at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur is now the best in the city as the building offers unrivalled views of the city’s skyline – a view I enjoyed from all corners of my suite.
Guest of club rooms and suites will enjoy access to the club lounge throughout their stay, where evening cocktails and breakfast is served. Alternatively, you can opt to have your breakfast at Thirty8 which offers more food selection but the area is also more crowded. Personally, I prefer having breakfast at Thirty8 because the selection of food is aplenty and the Chinese hot station is quite good.
Evening cocktails at the club lounge is one of my favourite features at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur and any other hotel for that matter because you get to enjoy the view between sips of wine or a tipple of your choice. The evening refreshments at Grand Hyatt is moderate but sufficient for those who want a light bite before heading out for dinner.
The Grand Twin Tower Suite is one of the best suites I’ve stayed at (locally) thus far – the room is spacious (105 sq m) with a plush king bed, living room and a large bathroom with marble bathtub (this is my favourite feature of the room). Staying in this suite was so comfortable I was reluctant to leave for any appointments; all I wanted to do is curl up on in bed and watch all the Netflix I can.
Location is good as it’s a 10-minute walk to KLCC and Pavilion using the covered bridge, so you get access to shops, food and also attraction spots. If you’re looking to relax entirely at the hotel, check out the spa facilities at ESSA Spa where essential oil treatments are their forte.
Afternoon tea at Thirty8 is said to be one of the best in KL but I’ve yet to give it a go. Dinner however, is worth checking out if you want to enjoy the view. I’ve been there thrice and the crabcakes are the best I’ve eaten in KL thus far. Fingers crossed it remains as good in the months to come!
