SOFITEL KUALA LUMPUR DAMANSARA HOTEL
Live The French Way
BY HIRANMAYII AWLI MOHANAN
Set in the affluent neighbourhood of Damansara Heights, the luxurious Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara is where the French art de vivre is blended with local heritage, creating an unparalleled experience. Inside, walk into a lavish and elegant lobby area festooned in Malay hibiscus flowers, beautiful objets d’art and a delicious fragrance that sets the tone for one’s stay.
The French architectural trope translates to the rooms, comprising the Luxury Club Floor Room, Junior Suite, Prestige Suite and Opera Suite, each paying homage to the hotel brand’s French heritage, fused with contemporary sensibilities. It doesn’t take long to make yourself feel at home in one of the hotel’s 328 sizeable rooms. Filled with natural light and thoughtfully- curated furniture, they boast all the comfort and amenities you’d hope for, though the exquisitely snug bed with plump pillows is the piece de resistance. After a difficult two years, those looking to indulge should stay in Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara’s Prestige Suite — a palatial abode perfect for a romantic escapade or weekend staycation. The modern grandeur continues in the ensuite bathrooms, with nude marble work and rain shower. Its generous bathtub is a highlight, too. Make your stay the epitome of relaxation by calling for an in-room bath therapy named the Pure Retreat Bath on the day of your arrival.
This French hotel is home to five restaurants and bars, with the signature all-day dining restaurant Kwee Zeen serving Pan-Asian cuisine, Chinese restaurant Wan Chun Ting, which translates to Ten Thousand Springs Pavilion offering authentic Cantonese and Imperial cuisine. Enjoy a selection of French wines and afternoon tea at Le Bar or relish in French-Italian cuisine in the casual Côte d’ Azur-inspired restaurant, Nizza. With a penchant for providing an exquisite experience, Nizza currently offers a fun, Sunday Party Kitchen Brunch, priced at RM148 per person and RM198 for a free flow of bubbles, wine and beer for three hours. Bring along your swimming attire and sway to the rhythms of Lizzy and Rimka (live DJs) and sink your teeth into the meticulously-crafted cuisine of the French Riviera, interspersed with a dip in the hotel’s swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms every now and again.
Relaxation at Sofitel Spa
Sofitel Spa takes relaxation to new heights and quite literally too. Regarded as one of the best, the hotel’s spa is the first of its kind to offer an authentic Hammam experience. Get the French glow with any of the packages and services on its menu. For the best of both worlds, we would recommend the Le Bien Etre — a wellness package that combines a body massage and facial. This 120 minute treatment is designed for the busy metropolitans, to release the knots and tension that binds the body using long, firm strokes. The facial, on the other hand, incorporates renowned French beauty brand called Thalgo to convey nourishment and a natural glow to the skin. Rest assured that you’ll leave Sofitel Spa light as a feather with renewed spirit and a zing to your steps.
