Staycation at The Majestic Hotel @ Governor Suite

When it comes to hotel, I always go for the one that gives me the closest feeling of being at home. YTL Autograph Hotels are the closest in this case.  Last weekend, I had a chance to stay at The Majestic Hotel. As I love historic building in fact history was one of my favourite subject in school, I chose to do my staycation at the Majestic Wing which is the original complex before it was refurbished and extended. I find the story behind this hotel extremely fascinating in fact it is documented as a national heritage site.

The colonial structure was built in 1932, making it the FIRST HOTEL IN MALAYSIA and was often patronised by the colonial and social elites during its British colonial heyday. During the Japanese occupation of Malaya in World War II, the hotel was used as a transit camp by the Japanese occupation government. The hotel resumed operation after the war, continuing to serve as an upscale venue and hotel for several more decades. It was later privatised by YTL Corp. and was reopened in 2012. I hope you’re still following me and haven’t knock out yet after a brief history lesson from me about the hotel… LOL.

I checked in at mid day, the whole process was very smooth, the staffs are extremely friendly greeted me by name. This tower consist of only 47 suites so it’s super exclusive. Among the privileges that you get to enjoy is 24 hours check in and out. This means whenever you check-in you’ll get to checkout 24 hours later at the exact time that you checked in. What a fair deal ! Other privileges are complimentary laundry service (OMG!), minibar and butler service. Luxury coach service is available every hour to KL Sentral Station, Mid Valley and Starhill Gallery in Bukit Bintang shopping district.

The governor suite is spacious and suitable for weekend getaway.

After checking in, I headed to the pool (although I can’t swim) as it’s been a while since the weather was bright. There’re two pools within the hotel. The other one is more crowded located in the new wing.

After soaking in the pool pretending that I can swim and so I did graciously with my hands and my feet touching the ground, it’s time for afternoon tea ! Oh yes ! Have I not mention that breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea are included in the room at the Majestic Tower. You can opt to have it delivered to your room by butler. Besides that, snacks and beverages are served at the club lounge (Majestic Wing) throughout the day. The suite comes with a complimentary 2.5 hour spa too. I’ll share my spa experience on a separate post. Majestic Hotel is definitely doing a great job at pampering their guests !

    

Afternoon Tea at Orchid Conversatory 

 

     

How heavenly is this place? Sipping my favourite Rose Garden tea in a setting like this, a serene moment away from the buzzing city. If you need a quick break to recharge yourself, this is definitely the place to be. The scone is amazing, possibly the best scone I’ve had in KL ! The rest are absolutely yummy too even when it’s cold. Imagine if you indulge in it when its warm. I was busy filming and taking photos so … picture first!  (Life as a instagrammer/blogger; we always eat cold food but it’s worth it)

Breakfast at Contango Restaurant before I tour the hotel to snap more photos. It’s never-ending as every corner of the Majestic Wing is a work of art. Beautiful curtains, shiny chandeliers, a flawless bathtub and much much more. Classic luxury is how I would define it. I love how this hotel pay so much attention to the smallest details. I enjoyed the music on hold (MOH) too, I actually Shazam it lol…  The hold music speaks the concept of this hotel by itself. (Look how important music is in our life)

Those who love photography should definitely book a stay here. However if you do so, please be sure to get permission at the front desk and avoid causing any disturbance to the hotel guests. I’m sure you’ll be able to get enough content to feed your gram for a month.
