Rejuvenated and revitalised. That describes exactly how travellers should feel after a stay at the newly opened Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur and that was exactly how I felt after a two nights’ stay in this serviced residence styled hotel on a weekend getaway to Kuala Lumpur.
Having opened in April 2016, Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur marks Far East Hospitality’s first foray under the Oasia brand beyond Singapore. This namesake hotel, which is located strategically in the Kuala Lumpur Golden Triangle, positions itself in helping hotel guests to Journey Well, empowering them to have a holistically well stay even while travelling overseas.
At the core of the Oasia brand lies three wellness pillars – Refresh, Refuel and Recharge – rendering us a fresh new perspective on travelling well. In light of consumers becoming increasingly health- and wellness- conscious, Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur has proven to us that travelling well is needlessly elusive.
My stay at Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur over the weekend was made all the more reinvigorating with the property offerings.
Refuel at Organica Lifestyle that serves up scrumptious and healthy food fare
If you pay much thought to clean and mindful eating, Organica Lifestyle is the place for you. Tucked away in a serene residential area at Bangsar, this part lifestyle part café destination redefines healthy eating and organic food even for those unfamiliar to this way of life.
While Mexican Tacos is the last to strike you as a healthy treat, Organica Lifestyle has proven to us that the likes of nasi lemak and tacos need not be unhealthy to be tasty. Eating well certainly doesn’t stop when you’re travelling overseas.
Organica Lifestyle @ Bangsar | 66 Lorong Maarof, Bangsar 59100 Kuala Lumpur | Opens from 10am to 5pm
Refresh at KL Eco Park within the tropical rainforest Bukit Nanas
Looking for an outdoor respite from your usual desk-bound routine we have grown accustomed to in the city? Saunter through the luscious greenery in KL Eco Park, which happened to be the only surviving virgin forest in Kuala Lumpur. Best of all, you get to calm your senses in the walk without having to pay for the entrance – it’s free for all to visit.
Kuala Lumpur Eco Park | Hutan Lipur Bukit Nanas, Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | Opens 7am to 6pm daily including weekends and public holidays
Recharge with an energetic MUD Kuala Lumpur Musical Show
Have it ever occurred to you how Kuala Lumpur came about? MUD Kuala Lumpur Musical Show holds the answer to your question. Literally, Kuala Lumpur refers to “muddy confluence” as mud and confluence stand for “Lumpur” and “Kuala” in English.
As an alternative to visiting museums in learning about the origins of Kuala Lumpur, you can watch this award-winning recital that will take you through the history of Kuala Lumpur from 1857 to present-day with much fun and laughter. This high-octane ensemble impressed us with some of their unexpected and interesting theatre effects (not going to spoil for you so you got to check them out!) and amusing interaction with the audience.
It has been running for two and a half years and we certainly could see the reason why. Be sure to catch this humourous musical when you happen to be in Kuala Lumpur.
MUD Kuala Lumpur Musical Show | Panggung Bandaraya DBKL Jalan Raja, 50050 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | Musical runs twice a day; at 3pm and 8.30pm daily subject to blackout dates. Entry fees apply.
Refuel with a mouth-watering feast at Hutong Lot 10
How can you head to Kuala Lumpur without having a pit stop for some authentic local delights? Hutong Lot 10 is a food court that leaves an indelible impression on foodies with a wide myriad of local delicacies from char kway tiao, char siew pork to duck noodles and many more.
Lot 10 Hutong Food Court | Lot 10 Shopping Centre, Food Court, Lower Ground Floor, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Wilayah Persekutuan, 50250 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | Opens daily 10am – 10pm
Refresh at the Sky Deck at Menara Kuala Lumpur (KL Tower)
It may come as a surprise to many but the iconic KL Tower in Malaysia is in fact the seventh tallest freestanding tower in the world. We were greeted with a 360-degree view of Kuala Lumpur City and the Klang Valley at the observation deck, which is 276m above the ground.
Looking down from a height of 394m at the Sky Deck may render your stomach tied up in knots, but a group of dedicated daredevils beg to differ. We were reeling in half disbelief and half shock upon hearing that there are professional jumpers who congregate at KL Tower annually at the BASE event for one purpose – to jump from the tower. If anything, the view here is pretty darn good jumpers want to take their plunge here.
Menara Kuala Lumpur | Jalan P Ramlee, 50250 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | Opens from 9am to 10pm
While many travellers overlook their health and wellness as they go about their overseas trips, Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur makes eating and travelling health a priority for its valued guests. Eating wholesome food has never been easier particularly with Kafe Oasia, the hotel restaurant offering seasonal menu changes with healthy options from environmentally responsible sources.
Ultimately, our stay at Oasia Suites KL was exceedingly pleasant and it is only one of many more to come.
