Recently, I had the pleasure of previewing Hilton Kuala Lumpur newly refurbished spaces. The much-awaited refurbished Collaboration Spaces comprises a RM21 million redesign and state-of-the-art-technology upgrades to elevate the overall experience and quality of meetings and events. In line with Hilton’s Ensemble concept of connecting spaces, people and ideas, Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s aim for its new Collaboration Spaces is to create meaningful meetings. Its collaboration spaces are designed to be agile, relaxed and highly engaging, creating flexibility to meet the needs of different groups and events of all sizes.
The grand refurbishment features a chandelier called The Verve. It is developed by LASVIT, a progressive Czech glassmaking and design company known for breathtaking custom-made installations exhibited all over the world. The Verve chandelier is inspired by the movement of dance and was developed together with LTW Singapore Pte Ltd. The movement of a dancer is captured in this Bohemian crystal glass art piece made to inspire the hotel visitors with its fluid-like energy. Movements of dance are represented by the colours used for its glass components, where iridescent hues can be seen from different angles.
The grand ballroom also comes with a list of other impressive new technologies to facilitate intelligent meetings. Chargifi promotes efficiency, allowing delegates to stay connected at all times with wireless charging for their devices, so they never run out of power. Flip, an innovative digital flipchart designed for easy brainstorms.
Led by Executive Chef Kazi Hassan, Hilton Kuala Lumpur’s team of reputable, international chefs take culinary creations a step further with an always-on menu featuring fresh, locally sourced produce to fuel meeting attendees throughout the day. Located by the Collaboration Spaces, the Delicatessen and Barista Cafe is the first of its kind in Malaysia and serves bespoke Sabahan coffee blend exclusive to Hilton Kuala Lumpur so delegates can enjoy a freshly brewed barista-grade coffee anytime. Featuring warm lighting and contemporary lounge furniture, the Living Room recreates a residential experience, serving freshly baked pastries straight from the oven.
With top notch technology, culinary options and award-winning hospitality and service, the versatile pre function and Collaboration Spaces magically transform into a dream wedding or perfect gala dinner venue. From Chinese to Western cuisine, banquet dinner choices include menus from Chynna, Iketeru, Graze, or guests can opt to have a special menu curated exclusively for their events.
Ranked as the Top Meeting Hotel APAC in Malaysia by Cvent, Hilton Kuala Lumpur is strategically located in the commercial hub of KL Sentral, connecting guests to all key areas including KL city centre for business convenience. The hotel features 512 guestrooms and suites, 50 meeting and collaboration spaces, 10 award-winning restaurants and bars, and an executive lounge with personalised service.
