Our Le Méridien Suite, in particular, bestowed upon us a panoramic spectacle of the city that was nothing short of majestic. Little did we know that Kuala Lumpur could unveil such a breathtaking view from this perspective. Our local friends from KL even wondered if we were back in Singapore already!
4. Laze away in a winding river
For the ultimate relaxation, Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur’s outdoor pool is the place to be. The pool itself embodies the serenity of a winding river, creating a picturesque backdrop that seamlessly blends beauty with recreation. Embark on leisurely swims or engage in cheerful frolicking with your little ones in the pool’s shallow area – the choice is yours. The pool is especially fun for the babies; our little Ally loved going down the mini water slide too!
5. Indulge in a captivating breakfast experience at Latest Recipe
They take breakfast seriously here at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur. The enchanting Latest Recipe serves as a stage for a culinary spectacle, showcasing an abundance of seasonal local ingredients and an explosion of vibrant flavours that define our sumptuous buffet breakfast. A true ode to local cuisine, the restaurant presents an impressive selection that captures the heart of Malaysia’s vibrant culture. I could not resist indulging in the beloved Roti Canai, a personal favourite that took me on a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Additionally, the inclusion of 63-degree eggs, a breakfast staple from Singapore, evoked a sense of comfort and familiarity. Their soft-boiled eggs are also pretty great!
We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that Latest Recipe at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur boasts a sugar cane extractor machine, ready to freshly press the refreshing goodness of sugar cane juice in an instant. This is not something that you would come across often in hotels. Furthermore, their selection of healthy juices was a real treat as well. What caught our attention was the option to request no extra sugar, allowing health-conscious patrons to savour the goodness of the juices without compromise. It is truly these little things that give you an exceptional hotel experience.

Since 2012, Gastro Sentral has ignited a fervour of interest and anticipation among seasoned globetrotters and local residents of Kuala Lumpur. The dining experience itself speaks volumes. On our own visit, Gastro Sentral exceeded expectations. The Avocado Burger, a standout highlight, was a symphony of flavours with its harmonious blend of tomato crab salad and luscious mango aioli – an absolute delight for the senses. Gastro Sentral’s Teriyaki Roasted Cod (which had delicious udon noodles and cod that melts in your mouth) and Seafood Aglio Olio Pepperoncino tasted amazing as well. Though do note that the latter packs a punch, but nonetheless great if you can take the heat.
