Amari Kuala Lumpur Review




Located in the heart of KL Eco City – the city’s most vibrant business and entertainment district – it’s just steps from The Gardens Mall and the Mid Valley Megamall, and just 45 minutes from KLIA. It’s also directly connected to LRT and KTM commuter stations and is surrounded by international corporate offices including Mercu 2 and 3, Aspire Tower, The Gardens North Tower and South Tower, Centrepoint and Menara IGB.


The 252 guest rooms and suites are warm and bright, each one brimming with modern amenities, spacious workspaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Any stay at one of their Club Deluxe or Club One Bedroom Suites also includes many exclusive benefits across the hotel such as complimentary evening cocktails and meeting room use.


We had the pleasure to experience a stay in a Club Deluxe Room recently.


The check in process was seamless and the front desk staff were impeccably polite and courteous. We were greeted and checked in by Wawa the front desk duty person. Amari KL is a member of the Onyx Rewards Loyalty Programme.














A recently opened brand new 5 star hotel, the lobby is spacious, classy and exudes a tranquil feeling of calm and elegance.


We were escorted to our room by Zarina the Guest Relations Manager. She was very polite, courteous and friendly.


The Club Deluxe room is a huge 33-35 sqm space that has a King sized bed and a sofa bed, which can sleep 3 adults or 2 adults and 1 child.













All minibar items are complimentary. Club benefits include 2 hours complimentary usage of a meeting room3 pieces of laundry or pressing per day, access to the Club Lounge and complimentary buffet breakfast at Amaya Food Gallery.








After settling into the room, we decided to head to the Club Lounge for evening cocktails. The Club Lounge is actually the Cascade Lounge on the Ground floor, next to the reception.










A bright, airy, naturally lit cafe and lounge at the lobby area that doubles up as a Club Lounge. How ingenious and creative use of space!


The evening cocktail menu with a nice selection of house wines, beer, cocktails, juices and non-alcoholic drinks.



The house wine selection.


The canapes spread - huge variety and filling enough for dinner.








No stay in a hotel is complete without an F&B experience at its F&B outlets, so we decided to head to Amaya Bar on Level 1 for dinner. Amaya Bar is the outdoor chillax area of the Amaya Food Gallery on Level 1.




The outdoor alfresco chillout area.







Our uber cool and friendly bartender concocting some cocktails for us.











Overall the dinner experience was nothing short of extraordinary. The cocktails were superb and the food was immaculate. We thank Subra the F&B Director for taking good care of us. We must commend Subra for being one of the most involved and hands-on F&B Directors we have met, someone who walks the talk and leads by example. We observed him personally clearing dishes from tables.


After a good night's sleep, we were back at Amaya Food Gallery for their legendary breakfast. Subra shared Amaya has one of the widest spreads and best breakfasts in KL and he was true to his word.















































Indian, Malay, Chinese, Western, Fusion, Continental - Amaya has got them all. A smorgasbord of different cosmopolitan styles Malaysia has to offer. This has to be one of the most amazing buffet breakfast spreads we have experienced in a long time.
