After replying to our cabdriver for the third time, asking if the really was “Mandarin Oriental” and not “D Oriental” we wanted to go to, we made our way from Kuala Lumpur airport to the fancy and modern center of Kuala Lumpur, known as The Golden Triangle. In defense of the cabdriver, he was properly just trying to avoid any the embarrassment of us, if our destination actually was the 2 star D Oriental, and not the 5 star world famous luxury hotel Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur. Actually very nice of him.
The Mandarin Oriental is really our kind of luxury hotel – when staying at the Club Deluxe floors, 25 th to 29 th floor, you are spending you time in a super tranquil and relaxing environment. You have your separate lounge at the 30. floor, where both breakfast, deli lunch, afternoon tea and evening cocktails are served free of charge, combined with breathtaking views over KL park and city center. Here you never feel like sitting in a crowed restaurant, with yelling children running around, making you choke in the food, just to get out in a heartbeat.
