Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur
Located at the convergence of the Gombak and Klang rivers, this 365-room property is nestled in KL's financial hub. Guest rooms are outfitted with warm, earth-toned carpets, luxurious featherbeds, and brass inlay detailing. This contemporary hotel offers 25 meeting rooms, stationery printing services, and LCD projector rentals for the business-minded traveler. For pleasure seekers, there's the Spa Village, a rare fusion of the tropical and urban, where you can detoxify with a restorative pearl and rice facial or a papaya body scrub, surrounded by gazebos and a landscaped terrace. Family travelers should not skip a visit to the new, state-of-the-art aquarium with over 5,000 exhibits, just ten minutes away.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
