PULLMAN KUALA LUMPUR CITY CENTRE
Contemporary Comfort of Home
By Hiranmayii Awli Mohanan
Sometimes, the best getaway venues are right under our noses. Though ideally, we dream about lounging by the beach while listening to the crashing of waves, an equally relaxing escapade can be found within the city and this is at Pullman Kuala Lumpur City Centre.
In fact, a weekend respite without having to travel far or bear the cost of exorbitant flight tickets is a metropolitan’s dream. The location of the hotel is strategic, at the heart of the golden triangle. Merely a stone’s throw away is Pavilion Mall, where retail therapy and a myriad of entertainment await.
We stayed in the Premium Deluxe Room on the 24th floor, granting us a panoramic view of stunning skyscrapers through magnificent windows. The setting of the room is a cosy and comforting one where a grey palate is seen throughout, complemented by bursts of turquoise hues. We were welcomed into the room with the stunning view on one hand and the other, welcome amenities featuring a delectable array of sweet treats presented in a glass box alongside sparkling water.
The small touches and details make a world of difference and a stay more comfortable. We noticed USB ports by the bed side and more found at the work station, catered for the business travellers. Besides the work station, we loved the lounge sofa with plump pillows for those who wish to watch some TV or simply bask in the breathtaking view of the concrete jungle. The king-size bed with oversized pillows is immensely comfortable and very hard to get out of—it took sheer willpower to get us out of bed.
One need not bother to leave or get on the GrabFood app because under Pullman KLCC’s roof are four dining options to satiate your appetite. Should you have the hankering for some Chinese fare, Red Chinese Cuisine is the place for you. Embodying its epithet, the interior palate is red and black, embellished with oriental flair. Red is an evolution in Chinese cuisine with a modern, stylish and innovative approach. It specialises in dim sum, traditional favourites and ever-changing signature dishes created by Chef Mak and his dynamic team.
Then, there is Sedap Restaurant, Pullman KLCC’s all-day dining restaurant, Living Space—a special club exclusive to residential guests, and Terrace Poolside Bar & Grill for those who seek some bites and libation while lounging by the pool. Enju makes the fourth dining outlet, the purveyor of Japanese fare. The light and airy space and an open kitchen allows the master chef here to showcase his culinary prowess, serving the freshest sashimi and sushi. To top it off, accompany your meal with some sake and shochu, an invitation to taste the best of Japanese beverages.
Spa and Fitness
Pullman KLCC understands the plight of the busy metropolitans and business travellers and their wellness needs to take on the next adventure. With that in mind, this hotel offers global nomads re-energising space so they can continue to work hard and play hard.
The Fit Lounge is equipped with cardio and weight machines, enough to blow off steam and work up a sweat to beat that jet lag. Its view of the tropical garden is easy on the eyes, perfect to wake you up or wind down. The swimming pool also serves as a de-stressing means and let’s be honest, there’s nothing more relaxing than lounging by the pool, basking in the sun while sipping on cocktails.
Vibes Spa is another facility guests should indulge in. It acts as a sanctuary where millennials and spa influencers converge to experience an array of therapeutic remedies that are carefully selected to suit a high-paced lifestyle.
