On our way back to Europe last month we decided to break up our travel with a quick 2-night stay at The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! We were exhausted from going non-stop in Europe for 6-weeks, and wanted a mini getaway to relax for a few days before getting back to life in Bali. Flights from Kuala Lumpur to Bali are usually reasonably priced, and the KL airport is a major international hub for long haul flights making Kuala Lumpur a regular stop on our travel schedule. This time we were so excited to be spending our time at The Ritz Carlton, our first time ever experiencing this 5-star hotel group, and we could hardly wait!
After so much exploring and travel back and forth within Europe, we didn't care to be out and about in Kuala Lumpur-- especially since we have been to the city many times now. ((However, the hotel is in the heart of the city center so it is the perfect location to be able to explore from!)) We were most excited about enjoying all that The Ritz had to offer, which is why we couldn't wait to share with you guys our 'A Day at The Ritz Carlton, Kuala Lumpur' itinerary!
A Day at The Ritz Carlton, Kuala Lumpur
Okay let's be honest... we definitely didn't make it out for sunrise on our first morning back in Asia. Not to mention, our bed was way too comfortable and we had a great view of the skyline to enjoy right from the comfort of our bedroom!.
Our first stop in the morning was straight to the breakfast buffet in The Cobalt Room!
After giving our food some time to digest, we couldn't wait to hit the gym! 6-weeks of croissants, pasta, pizza, and gelato in Europe meant there was pretty much nothing we needed more than some cardio time! Luckily the fitness center was stunning and open 24-hours.
Lunch time! It would be a pretty bold statement to say that the mushroom soup at The Patisserie was the best soup I've ever had... but let's just be honest and say it was literally the best soup I've ever had! I'll be dreaming about that soup for a really long time...
There's a spa on the property with a gorgeous pool that we knew we needed to spend some time at-- even if it was just for a little while. The view of the city and the tropical plants surrounding the area make for such a relaxing experience.
We freshened up and headed straight to The Lobby Lounge for afternoon tea-- which is an absolute must when staying at The Ritz! The lounge was by far my favorite area in the hotel because of how beautifully + elegantly decorated it is. There's even a live quartet playing as you enjoy your 3-tiered "snacks" and tea!
We were in desperate need of a nap after all of our food intake and activities for the day-- so poolside for the last few hours of sunlight was the perfect way to relax! (ok ok... let's be honest. They left us some macarons so we couldn't resist a little snack after our nap!)
We were so excited to have dinner in The Library to finish off our evening! The dining room is surrounded by shelves and shelves of books including topics of our three favorite things: travel, fashion, and design! The food was incredible, the wine pairings were spot on, and we were left completely satisfied by our first day at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur.
We made out way out to the lobby bar for a little more live music and a night cap, then off to bed to rest up for another amazing day at the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur!
