InterContinental Hotels Group's (IHG) design-led luxury boutique hotel brand Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is next headed to Kuala Lumpur following the recent launch of Kimpton Maa-Lai Bangkok, the brand's first in Southeast Asia.
IHG has entered into a management agreement with LQ Retail to open Malaysia’s first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in 2023 at The Exchange TRX, a seven-hectare integrated development within Kuala Lumpur's upcoming CBD.
The 471-room design-led Kimpton Kuala Lumpur will feature three F&B outlets including a rooftop bar & restaurant and a deli-grocer café, plus an outdoor rooftop swimming pool and a gym. A range of unique meeting and event spaces will also cater to activities and events of various sizes.
LQ Retail is a joint venture between Lendlease, an international property and infrastructure group and TRX City, the master developer of Malaysia’s upcoming international financial district TRX.
