IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group) has announced the launch of Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park in 2023, which will mark the debut of the Hotel Indigo brand in Malaysia. The 180-room hotel will be located at the base of the picturesque Bukit Nanas, close to KL Tower and KL Forest Eco Park, in the heart of Malaysia’s capital city.
Kuala Lumpur’s multicultural influences will be embedded in the property’s DNA through a visionary design which captures the historical charm of local heritage buildings and the breadth of nearby modern architecture. With greenery from one of the country’s oldest forest reserves woven throughout the hotel to bring the forest inside, memorable features include an interactive Green Wall in the lobby and a spot of quiet serenity amidst the bustle of the city in a Secret Garden. Guests will have an immersive experience all through the hotel to savour (and share on social media).
The hotel’s two restaurant and bar options will be heavily influenced by its locality. The rustic, industrial chic of the Neighbourhood Café offers a taste of local Malaysian cuisine with a modern spin, while Char Bistro and Bar provides a more casual setting and the chance for guests to visit the rooftop bar and enjoy a sunset cocktail with sweeping views of KL Tower, the Petronas Twin Towers, and the urban landscape of KL. A function room, flexible event space, outdoor rooftop pool, gym and work area will also be available for business and leisure travellers.
Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park will be located within walking distance of the main financial district, shopping at KLCC and Pavilion Mall, and a wide array of dining choices including Jalan Alor and Petaling Street, with their endless rows of hawker stalls. The neighbourhood is steeped in historical charm with heritage buildings and icons, and bounded by strips of hip restaurants and bars along the Changkat and Chinatown areas.
Across South East Asia and Korea there are currently four Hotel Indigo hotels in Bangkok, Bali, Phuket and Singapore, and Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park joins a growing pipeline for the brand including properties in Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. There are 126 Hotel Indigo hotels around the globe with a pipeline of nearly 100 hotels set to open within the next three to five years.
