ParkRoyal Collection has taken a short step out of Singapore and opened the doors of its new 527-room property in Kuala Lumpur.

And if first guests at the hotel in the heart of Bukit Bintang notice anything familiar with the Singapore Pickering property it will be the ‘eco-chic’ lush and leafy facade and roof terraces showcasing 13,000 square feet of plants and trees.

ParkRoyal Collection says it is welcoming guests into “a world of biophilia” (an innate and genetically determined affinity of human beings with the natural world), according to Harvard biologist, Ed Wilson, connecting them to the space and with one another.

The hotel has a holistic wellness floor comprising St Gregory spa, a gymnasium and fitness studio, as well as an outdoor swimming pool.

For meeting planners, there is 1,664 square metres of dedicated meeting spaces.

The green theme continues in the hotel’s two restaurants, The Botanist Lounge & Bar (cocktails, music and signature food) and Thyme (all-day dining).

The complex also houses Pan Pacific Serviced Suites Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, which will open in the second half of 2022 with 210 luxury suites.
