Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur : Our Review

Written by @Lan 

IMG_cp5ps

We love the fact that Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur is just next to KL Sentral, the transportation hub with a network of integrated railway connections. It was easy for us to reach this hotel, thanks to the super-efficient KLIA Ekspress that brought us from KLIA in less than 30 minutes. To go around Kuala Lumpur city, there are MRT, LRT and Monorail services at KL Sentral. Well, that’s just a start as there are many things that we truly enjoyed while being at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur. This is our honest thoughts, in regard to our experience; staying in a Deluxe Room at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur.

Serenity is perhaps the best word to describe our priceless experience while staying for 3 days and 2 nights at Resorts World Langkawi. The view was absolutely amazing and we wouldn’t trade our experience for anything in the world. Everything was perfect to a point that we failed to find a single, micro, tiny flaw. We enjoyed every minute we spent at the resort. It is indeed one of the best resorts in Langkawi.

Thought of the day-“My definition of a good hotel is a place I’d stay at.”-Robert De Niro

Lounging, even for a while @Skybar on the 33rd Floor of Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur, was indeed one great moment, having that breathtaking view of KLCC Twin Tower. We can do this every single day, we said to ourselves! Being frequent travelers and miles chaser(s), we have accumulated enough points in the Golden Circle Membership Program (Link), enabling us to redeem free nights at any Shangri-La’s, Jen and Traders Hotel worldwide. We’re curious about what’s inside Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur and so we came in as their guests, staying for 2 nights ; one room for each of us.

“The sea is dangerous and its storms terrible, but these obstacles have never been sufficient reason to remain ashore..unlike the mediocre, intrepid spirits seeks victory over those things that seem impossible…it is with an iron will that they embark on the most daring of all endeavors..to meet the shadow feature without fear and conquer the unknown.”-Ferdinand Magellan

Such a great quote by Ferdinand Magellan. A quote that inspired us to be a bit different when we write-up our experiences. Each new place gives us different thoughts and ideas, broader perspectives though at times challenging and seem impossible, we still proceed the journey which in the end enabling us to write-up the experiences. Same as Magellan, we have no fear in conquering the unknown. It was at the Magellan Club Lounge that we were once again inspired by the same quote. The uniqueness of this lounge at Magellan Sutera Resort-Sutera Harbour Resort, inspired us as well. The wooden ceiling resembles  the cabin of olden days ships, as if we’re sailing while lounging here. We might be imagining things but at least there’s a foundation to that. By far, this is the best club lounge (of hotels/resorts) in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

“Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.”-Camille Pissarro

We had the chance to stay at The Magellan Sutera Resort, Sutera Harbour Resort recently. The resort is uniquely different from other resorts that we have been to. Some say, the difference is due to its unique architecture that is pretty much inspired by the Rungus longhouses of Borneo. For the two of us, this resort gave us that tranquility of the sea that we’ve witnessed from our own balcony. We felt so relaxed here. This is truly great resort in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. We love our room so much that we dedicate this entry alone to review the room that we stayed in for 1 night. A short stay but we both saw many beautiful things in this mammoth resort that always stay humble. We really mean that.

“Life is like a Piano…What you get out of it depends on how you play it.’-Albert Einstein 

After that great dinner at Silk Garden, we headed to the Lobby Lounge at The Pacific Sutera Hotel, Sutera Harbour Resort (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah). Our intention was to relax while enjoying the evening snack at Lobby Lounge. A staff told us that soon Asif Pishori will be presenting his skills, performing some great music through his magical fingers. We decided to wait and witness this particular performance and see if Asif Pishori ably to entertain us. Then the man came, smiling, got himself comfortably seated next to the grand baby piano. The moment his fingers were on that keyboard, everyone stop talking. That soothing music, at times melancholic and then joyful, pretty much gave us that relaxation feel. Who is this guy? How come we never heard about him? Where did he came from? More questions asked, simply because we were mesmerized by that soothing music played by a mysterious man.

“Tea to the English is really a picnic indoors.”-Alice Walker

Picnic indoors? Perhaps. We both agreed. The view outside seen from the Lobby Lounge is definitely breathtaking. Green and at times there were birds. We saw that through that ceiling to floor window panels. We had English Tea here, sipping our selected hot beverages,eating that good finger food and it was definitely an awesome experience, as if we’re having picnic on the garden at The Pacific Sutera Hotel, Sutera Harbour Resort. This is another great dining option that we recommend to you if you come to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.

Breeze Beach Club at The Pacific Sutera Hotel is an open-air a-la carte restaurant and is complemented by a dining menu that includes tempting signature cocktails. Breeze Beach Club is near to the poolside area thus making it the perfect place to have some great lunch after some swimming or sunbathing! It’s also one of the best place in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah to view the magnificent sunset. We came here for the Breeze Weekend Fiesta few months ago. Here is the LINK to our review of that awesome BBQ Night. We enjoyed every minute we spent here as the view and food (the beverages as well) were so good! We had great lunch at Breeze Beach Club.

Located on the 11th floor, Pacific Club is open exclusively for Club Room and Suite guests. With high ceiling and pristine white color on the walls, it’s definitely a place for discerning guests of Pacific Club, to chill out and enjoy the privileges being offered to them. Buffet breakfast of Club Standard and Evening Cocktails are served daily. In between, guests may lounge and enjoy complimentary soft drinks, coffee and tea. We came here several times and were amazed with the spectacular view of that South China Sea, seen from that extremely large window glass panels, across the entire lounge. With some beautiful white chandeliers, we really thought we were entering a cathedral!

“When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands into the worship of the creator”Mahatma Gandhi

Imagine this. You’re tired from that long journey on the plane, arriving at your destination and then to your hotel. You received your key card and when you open the door of your room, you found a balcony with some comfy deck chairs. The sunset view is there waiting for you. The sea breeze is giving you that freshest air that you needed most. Sit and enjoy the moment, every day, if you want to. We had that moment at The Pacific Sutera Hotel, Sutera Harbour Resort at Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. We had that breathtaking view of South China Sea and the Islands nearby. We sat on the deck chairs, enjoying the sea breeze, on the balcony attached to our Deluxe Sea View Twin Room.
