ASIA’S BEST AWARDS 2022: MALAYSIA’S TOP HOTELS, RESTAURANTS, BARS AND MORE
Travel + Leisure Asia – The votes have been counted for the first ever Asia’s Best Awards 2022 and here we reveal all your favorites in Malaysia.
No. 1 Best City Hotels in Malaysia – EQ Kuala Lumpur
Malaysia’s former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad probably couldn’t imagine his contribution to the country’s hospitality industry when he decided to swap KL’s former horse racing track for the now iconic César Pelli-designed Petronas Twin Towers. These days, most of the city’s five-star hotels swoon around the said towers including EQ KL. Its rooftop Blue, with a strong Insta-feed predilection and front-seat Twin Tower vistas, is a bar that at weekends gets so buzzy you definitely need to call up (or Whatsapp) for a table reservation. Then add the snazzy Kampachi, a Japanese joint whose very name generates hushed whispers of amazement from a clientele nurtured since the restaurant’s first iteration opened back in 1974. To wit, one voter said: “Kampachi has the best Japanese food in KL! Will definitely visit EQ every time I have the chance!”
