Here are some tips on how to maximise your stay and enjoy an unforgettable weekend getaway in KL!
1. Find a Good Hotel
Since this is a holiday, it is important to pick the right hotel. Team Weekender chose W Kuala Lumpur (121, Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur), a stylish hotel located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and is part of the renowned W Hotels brand. It’s known for its modern design, luxurious amenities, and trendy atmosphere. Situated in the vibrant heart of Kuala Lumpur, it allows you to conveniently explore KL’s culture, shopping, and cuisine. The hotel itself boasts multiple restaurants and bars offering a variety of dining options, catering to Western, Asian, and creative cuisine enthusiasts alike.
Once the sun sets, the rooftop pool at W Hotel provides the best view of the Petronas Twin Towers! Enjoy a cocktail while toasting to the night sky and the iconic Twin Towers for a perfect Instagram-worthy photo. Check out their AWAY® Spa, where you can enjoy professional massages and treatments without leaving the hotel, and at prices much more reasonable than Singapore’s five-star hotels!
