The beautiful and multicultural Malaysia is an excellent choice for a honeymoon adventure as you can spend time in each other’s company while exploring everything this country has to offer, including many sights and the various foods of Asia. Culture Trip is here to help you get the most out of that special vacation with your loved one by helping you with the most important aspect of your holiday – where to stay. Take a pick from the list below and pamper yourselves with a few nights in one of the most luxurious hotels in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur.
Staying true to the vision of finding every part of Asia in one country, Villa Samadhi presents an exquisite Balinese influence to its already modern minimalist Malay refurbishments, infusing the beauty of Indonesian motifs. This hotel is perfect if you’re seeking a place where you can leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, as it provides a secret garden-like environment from the moment you walk inside. Children under the age of 12 and animals are unfortunately not permitted, but take this chance to revel in the quietness. With a location close enough to the Twin Towers, but just far enough for them to be a beautiful part of the skyline, start off your day with a cooked-to-order breakfast by the private pools before embarking on a leisurely shopping spree. Also, don’t worry about getting from the airport to this sanctuary located right in the heart of the city – a 24-hour shuttle service is available.

Aptly named after the mystical kingdom of paradise, people familiar with the finer places in life will be no stranger to this luxe hotel brand’s reputation. Shangri-La lies at the junction where old KL meets new KL, so enjoy the view of old KL’s river and the progressing development of the Golden Triangle simultaneously. Serving an in-house specialty of French and Cantonese cuisine, savor continental treats after a fun day of shopping and sight-seeing at the Kuala Lumpur Towers and Petronas Twin Towers, both located approximately five minutes away. Children are allowed, and those under the age of 11 stay for free if you should be on the lookout for places that have kid-friendly facilities.
Promising the largest rooms a five-star hotel could offer in the whole of Kuala Lumpur, the Grand Hyatt KL doesn’t disappoint with quarters large enough to house a walk-in wardrobe. It also features a rooftop pool to lounge in as you take in the sights of upper Kuala Lumpur and is home to Thirty8, one of KL’s most revered all-day restaurants, offering a 360-degree view of the surrounding areas, from the nearby KLCC Twin Towers to the KL Tower in the opposite direction. Perfect for honeymooners, the restaurant specializes in show kitchens, where you and your spouse will have a fantastic time watching your meals be prepared by skilled chefs right in front of you, regardless of the type of cuisine.
Put on the ritz at The Ritz-Carlton and treat your loved one to a weekend of sheer grandeur. This upscale hotel sits just behind the Golden Triangle, giving guests quiet pleasure in the linings of Bukit Bintang, away from the hectic shopping areas. As part of their promise to provide a luxurious experience, the hotel offers a personal butler in some suites. It also boasts traditional five-star excellence and a bar, aptly named The Library, for all of your romantic needs – reservations recommended.

This international stunner retains its highly revered standards to provide you and your spouse with the best service you could ask for in accommodations. Providing strong competition in the hotel market, Mandarin Oriental guarantees world-class hospitality right in the middle of the capital city. Overlooking the Symphony Lake of KLCC, enjoy some quality time utilizing the many amenities of the hotel, including a world-class tropical spa and many leisure facilities.
This affordable, family-friendly establishment is great for couples who crave some simple, no-fuss intimacy while still receiving quality service. Right smack in the Bukit Bintang area and located strategically close to many public transportation stations for out and about adventuring beyond the district, The Westin is ideal for those who would like to spend time together shopping. For a special touch, simply tell the hotel about your honeymoon status, and prepare to receive a little special personal touch in your room as a surprise!
In a sea of other big brand hotels in the area, the JW Marriott wants to provide you and your spouse with the best luxury treatment; therefore, it has recently upgraded its interiors to remain one of the most modern and comfortable accommodations in the city. Being Ritz-Carlton’s sister establishment, expect equally great service from the JW Marriott as well, with the only exception being that it is located above the Starhill Gallery, giving you instant access to some of Kuala Lumpur’s most exclusive high-end retail outlets.
