THE ROYALE CHULAN KUALA LUMPUR
The Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur has set out to offer its guests gracious Malaysian hospitality as one of the hallmark features of this luxurious five-star hotel centrally located in Kuala Lumpur’s downtown business district. Staff are specially trained to provide professional, discrete, warm and friendly service in the hotel that has been designed to reflect local Malaysian heritage architecture. Guests experience genuinely warm service that is so typical of Malaysian hospitality. While the hotel incorporates contemporary services and facilities, it features elements of Malaysia’s unique architecture. Guests have the opportunity to relax in one of 300 deluxe hotel rooms and suites or for longer staying guests, in one of the 102 well-appointed serviced apartments or studios.
The hotel is a mid-scale development with two towers rising five and 13 storey above the street. Most rooms have panoramic views of the Petronas Twin Towers, one of the world’s most identifiable landmarks. The architects have designed a u-shaped building that reflects the local architecture to provide guests with a truly Malaysian experience. While international standards and facilities are incorporated into its design there are many features that use tropical building materials to showcase the local culture.
High-pitched tiled roofs are typical of early Malay architecture as they assisted in keeping buildings cool. The hotel and the adjoining office block called Chulan Tower were designed by the same architect and have been sympathetically planned to blend in with each other. Both buildings are landmark designs and readily identifiable features of the Kuala Lumpur skyline.
Guests arrive into the plush hotel lobby via an elaborate landscaped porte cochère. The glassed-in courtyard conservatory is located immediately beyond the lobby and is a feature of the hotel’s interior. Four large crafted rainforest trees adorn the internal supports to offer a tropical ambience that will appeal to those seeking a stimulating setting for special events such as cocktail receptions and dinners. Handcrafted wooden design elements are discretely located throughout the hotel’s public areas and guestrooms. These rainforest timbers have been sustainably sourced from Malaysian forests and sculpted by local artisans. Hand-crafted timber is a feature of many traditional Malaysian houses especially those from the state of Terengganu and these artisans were often employed by royalty to build their stately wooden structures. Carved wooden features were also incorporated into local house designs to enable circulation of the air and to keep the interiors of buildings cool. These carved pieces of timber also enabled filtered light into the buildings. Water is another important element of local architecture and various water features are located in the hotel’s design to provide a soothing ambience and to assist in keeping the building cool. Elaborate, lotus-shaped chandeliers also grace several public areas including the grand Taming Sari Ballroom.
