Guests at the 473-room InterContinental Kuala Lumpur can now enjoy an assorted array of Asian fusion canapés and deserts, alongside free flow cocktails and other refreshments at the newly relaunched Club Intercontinental.

Those staying in the hotel's Classic Club rooms and suites will be able to access to the club on the 26th floor where they can opt to have a more intimate breakfast (as opposed to dining in the dedicated breakfast space with other guests). The club also offers all-day canapés, afternoon tea and evening cocktails.

There is also a private meeting room and complimentary WiFi. To enjoy further exclusivity, guests booked in the respective rooms and suites will be able to comfortably enjoy a more hassle-free check-in and check-out process at the venue.

With an all-new top management comprising mainly of Malaysians, the hotel hopes to spotlight Malaysian hospitality in the hotel industry. Spearheading the team is Meera Raj, the first Malaysian women to be appointed general manager of InterContinental Kuala Lumpur.

The hotel's transitional phase of moving away from the pandemic and reopening to international guests is labelled as "re-defining luxury" by Raj, as she believes that returning guests will find elements they remember from before, with the addition of more enhancements tailored to their liking.

“We're treating it a bit like a new hotel opening and reviewing all our products and services. We're retraining all staff on the fundamentals of luxury and looking into how we can further personalise stays," Raj said. "Our Concierge network is also back in place and we're looking to ensure that our guests are able to craft their own memories with us.

"Our restaurants and bars support this effort by sourcing the best produce - one could leave the meal up to the chef at Tatsu (our signature Japanese Restaurant) and be dazzled by the selection of the day from sashimi to the freshest musk melon from Japan, to my personal favourite: home-made mochi,” added Raj.
