After a tiring day of meetings or walks around the city, Kasbah bar & lounge with its Mediterranean setting is perfect to unwind yourself.
As I walked into this tall storeyed hotel, what garnered my attention was its lobby which has a grand and elegant ambiance. I stayed in a spacious Seasons Crest room which was furnished with a king size comfortable bed and all the facilities such as television, mini bar, iron board etc. The breathtaking view of the tall skyscrapers of the city including the Petronas Twin towers and KL Tower was absolutely spellbinding. The view of the glittering cityscape at night from the room was a sight to behold. The roof top swimming pool is a well designed one and their gymnasium comes with all the equipment. Though I couldn’t experience Avenue Café and Kasbah bar & lounge, I did dine at their O’las Indian restaurant. While the main course was mostly Indian with Pulau, chicken and mutton dishes, Kuih Muih which is a Malay appetizer was very delicious and equally colourful. The chef also made sure that he served a Malay specialty in the form of Rojak, a street food. As much as the night skyline view was gorgeous, the sunrise over the cityscape too was a pretty one next morning. Breakfast at Seasons Coffee House had a huge spread of both continental and South Indian cuisine. The bread pudding was absolutely yum.
P.S.: I was hosted by Grand Seasons Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on an invitation from Malaysia Tourism board, but opinions are completely mine.
