Infinity Pools, Chandeliers and Breathtaking Views, Oh My! Planning an Event in Kuala Lumpur.

Meeting Space and Guest Rooms

Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur City Center 50088 Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

The Mandarin Oriental is a luxurious hotel steeped in the traditional values of their oriental heritage. The Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur has the city’s most distinctive and prestigious address near the PETRONAS Towers. With 632 guest rooms and 3 floors of breathtaking ballrooms and meeting space, you can plan the event of your dreams. They have in-house AV and the catering looks fabulous. They have sophisticated facilities with personal, passionate service. You also can’t beat the many amenities such as the several restaurants, indoor golf course, infinity pool, hot tub and workout facilities. They can accommodate smaller meetings as well as large meetings with a max capacity of 1800. They mentioned their main competitors are the Hyatt and the Shangri-La.

Capri by Fraser

No. 5 Jalan Kerinchi, 59200 Kuala Lumpur

Capri by Fraser is a refreshing new hospitality concept that blurs the line between business and leisure. It is located in the prestigious Bangsar South residential cum commercial enclave. With 240 studios and apartments with kitchenettes and meeting spaces (Max 80 people) with full length windows overlooking the skyline this is certainly going to WOW your attendees. This is a much less expensive option than the Mandarin Oriental and is a lot more modern. They also have fabulous amenities including a fully-equipped gym, pool, garden terrace, game room, steam and sauna room and my favorite personal Jacuzzis overlooking the city.

Receptions

 

Neo Tamarind

19 Jalan Sultan Ismail Kuala Lumpur 55100

Best described as ‘the new Zen’, Neo Tamarind has rule breaking Asian fare. Oozing style and panache, the outlet is decorated with liquid walls, a huge chandelier and a chic looking bar.

Heli Lounge Bar

Bukit Bintang 34th Floor, Menara KH, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A helipad by day and bar by night? Yes, that’s exactly what Heli Lounge Bar is all about. Heli Lounge is open and surrounded by 360 degree views of KL and some mismatched furniture. Renting this out for a sunset cocktail reception would be spectacular.

Stratosphere @ The Roof

Bandar Utama, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

Stratosphere is another helipad-turned-bar, but with a modern garden vibe. It is located 20 miles outside of KL. The grassy roof of First Avenue is adorned with glowing, futuristic fixtures at night. Instead of overlooking the city of KL, Stratosphere looks over Petaling Jaya. You could host an amazing cocktail party or a once in a lifetime yoga in the sky event.

PS 150

150 Jalan Petaling, Ground Floor Kuala Lumpur 50000

Located in Chinatown, what was previously a brothel, house and warehouse, is now PS150, a cocktail bar headed by famed bartender Angel Ng. The space is divided into three different sections; the first section has a vintage look with red lights called the Opium Den, second is the Tiki space where it’s an open-air courtyard that’s great for bigger groups. The next room is the main bar area where it’s a mix of modern and old. The cocktail menu is divided into five eras (Vintage, Classic, Tiki, Disco and Contemporary) and each cocktail has is own unique twist on a classic. Although romantic in décor and lighting, planning a private event here would be a magical experience for your guests.

Marini’s on 57

Level 57, Menara 3 Petronas, Persiaran KLCC, 50088 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Marini’s is KL’s highest rooftop bar and is shoulder to shoulder with the Twin Towers. There are three venues – Italian fine dining, a lounge with a vast selection of cigars and single malt whiskey. You can’t beat the view of the towers from this restaurant. This would be perfect for an executive level function.

Mai Bar at Aloft

No. 5 Jalan Stesen Sentral, Kuala Lumpur 50470

This Tiki themed bar at Aloft Hotel in KL Sentral keeps the atmosphere light and upbeat. Known for their cocktails, you can let the mixologists here shake up something to your fancy. This would be perfect for the younger crowd or a fun Leadership Event.
