Kuala Lumpur’s little sister, Petaling Jaya has long lived in the shadow, but in recent years has started to emerge, forming a personality of its own. It’s here in “PJ” that visitors can see a more suburban, workaday side of Malaysia’s capital, with the added benefits of accommodation that spans all budgets, and a growing public transportation web that makes it easy to get downtown.

New World Petaling Jaya

Hotel
4.6/5 (280 Reviews)

The New World towers over Petaling Jaya, tempting landmark status. The hotel boasts 300 rooms and suites, all of which are unified by a refined, almost Japanese minimalism stemming from touches such as sustainable bamboo wood floors and sleek furniture in white, grey and cream. Indeed, Malaysian-influenced wall art offers a reminder of where you are. A rooftop pool provides yet another perspective on this expanding city.

Dating back to 1984, Petaling Jaya’s Hilton feels new and timeless, western and tropical, all at the same time. Tipping the scales toward the holiday end of the hotel spectrum, the focus here is on style and relaxation, although it can comfortably double as a business hotel, if needed. With a location between Kuala Lumpur’s city centre and airport, it’s also a convenient place to stay.

The Royale Chulan Damansara, located just north of Petaling Jaya, blends a rather imposing, business-class exterior with holiday-minded amenities. Rooms edge toward upscale in feel, with heavy drapes and padded furniture, while the palm-fringed infinity pool begs for a splash. A location within walking distance of Kuala Lumpur’s MRT means it’s a snap to get to and from the city.

This massive hotel – nearly 500 rooms total – functions as a convenient, contemporary base. Accommodation is spacious and functional, with access to perks such as an expansive pool and fitness centre. But the real draw is its location at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, one of Southeast Asia’s largest malls and across the street from Kuala Lumpur’s MRT line, making shopping and city access almost a bit too easy.
