Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur
Nestled between the tropical gardens of Kuala Lumpur City Center Park and the soaring Petronas Twin Towers, this conveniently located city hotel is also within accessible distance of Little India, Merdeka Square, and the Golden Triangle. Gleaming copper trims the 551-rooms, and contemporary regional art lines the walls. The DJ spins from a gold-plated booth at Sultan, one of KL's hottest nightclubs while the MO Bar takes it down a notch, attracting an older crowd with its extensive single malt selection and dark wood interiors. Both the hotel's Lounge and its fine dining restaurant, Biba's, were recently updated.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
