Home Hotel Review Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur Staycation

Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur Staycation

by Bangsar Babe

I’ve always had fond memories of Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur – growing up, my parents would take my siblings and I for meals at either Lemon Garden or Shang Palace as these were one of my late mother’s favourite places to dine in KL. Now with two little ones in tow, I take them to Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur for meals and short stays.

And I must say, they’ve grown to associate with Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur the way I did as a child. The hotel itself has rebranded to accommodate families – with plenty of kids activities, kids meal options and also rooms that tailor to the joy and comfort of young children.

Something I discovered during my stay at the in Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur recently.


Family Premier Suite


Main bedroom

The Family Premier Suite comes with a tepee tent bed setup for the little ones to play and sleep in. This room comes with a sliding door separating the bedroom and children’s tent area.


Bathroom, complete with adult and kids shower amenities



Welcome amenities for kids and adults



Kechik Sensory Play welcome kit

This room also includes access to Horizon Club Lounge which happens to be one of my favourite parts of staying in Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur. It used to be a business lounge but now that the hotel is more inclusive of families, children are allowed to enjoy the lounge as well.

Of course, there is still a “quiet area” where business discussions can still take place. Evening cocktails start from 5pm till 7pm daily, and the food spread is more than enough to keep you satisfied while enjoying your wine, beer or cocktails.

May Anne and May Jynn had plenty of fun here!

One of the features our little ones enjoyed at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur is the kid’s beauty and spa at Jeong Family, located on Level 1. This Kids Experiential Play Studio & Beauty Emporium offers chemical and toxic free baby and kids products such as lotions, nail colour, makeup and skincare. May Anne and May Jynn really enjoyed themselves at Jeong Family as they get to experiment with nail colours, face powder and eye shadows.


Seafood buffet dinner at Lemon Garden


Dining options are aplenty in Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur; you can opt to dine at Lemon Garden, Shang Palace, Zipangu or Arthur’s Bar & Grill. I dare say Lemon Garden still remains one of the best hotel buffets in town when it comes to variety, quality and value. Which is why Jien and I dine there quite frequently with our children.

Breakfast at Horizon Club Lounge


Smaller but more curated breakfast selection at the lounge. Curry laksa is also available!

Breakfast is included in this package and you can opt to dine at either Horizon Club Lounge or Lemon Garden. If you’re looking for variety, I’d say Lemon Garden offers plenty of that for all-day dining, including breakfast. For those wanting a bit of space and seclusion, Horizon Club Lounge gives you that – with a smaller buffet area but plenty of options from the “order from table” menu such as Eggs Florentine, Eggs Benedict and Curry Laksa.


Pastries and buns for the little ones. There’s a pretty good selection for children in Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur.

What I like about dining and staying at Shangri-La Kuala Lumpur is that sense of familiarity with the property. Though renovation and upgrades have been done, I like that there’s still that nostalgic part of Shangri-La KL which I identify with.


Spot the jellycat bunnies, which the girls insisted on bringing along!
