Despite its 365-room size and dynamic downtown locale, the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur maintains the intimacy of a private guesthouse, thanks to the personal butler service that comes standard with each room. Four on-site restaurants, including award-winning Cantonese venue Li Yen, as well as personal in-room dining services give an appealing alternative to the restaurants that crowd nearby Bukit Bintang. The full-service Spa Village and stocked fitness center provide diversions for the health and wellness set. And elegant guestrooms blend Old World elegance with modern conveniences, including executive work stations, flat-panel HD TVs and marble bathrooms with bath-butler services.

How to Get There
Upon reading the glowing reviews about the high tea at Ritz Carlton KL, I decided to take my family of 2 teens and my husband there.
The event turned out to be quite a disappointment, to say the least. The menu was inflexible, and we only had 3 options to choose from.
The English high tea, the sweet ( only scones offered) , and the savoury choice.
As the English High tea selection offered both sweet and savoury options, we all decided to order 2 sets which stated it was for 2 pax per set to share.
It came in a pretty 3 tier in arrangement, but alas the food was sub standard at best. On the bottom tier, there were 2 cold quiches, and 2 cold chicken pies, the crust of the pies were almost soggy, as no attempt were made to heat them up.
The 2nd tier consisted of well displayed finger sandwiches, egg mayo, non descript curry fillings and cucumber with barely there tuna.
The uppermost tier was where they served the sweets/ desserts. We received madeleines ( i have tastes better store bought ones), and pretty decent red velvet morsel of a cake, some coffee tasting absurdity，and a stale sponge cake with whipped cream to dress it up.
The 4 scones, which were very crumbly and lacked density, were served with enough cream for 2, although the waiter did bring more when requested.
Drinks wise, they only offered a selection of teas and as I have children in their early Early teens, they had to settle for a pot of peach tea which was not to their fancy. when asked for hot milk to go with my AssaM tea, the waiter promptly brought me cold milk and poured my tea to the brim of my teacup, leaving me no room to add the milk.
In conclusion, i find the high tea at
The Ritz KL overpriced and overrated. The platter which they claimed to serve 2, was hardly enough to satisfy both my teens and my significant other and myself. Did I mention the price of the meal does not include the pot of tea, which had to be ordered separately??
We booked 2 units of suite, 1 is 3 bedrooms & the other 1 was a 2 bedrooms suite, it was spacious, all facilities were complete, very comfortable stay. Hotel staffs was very friendly and the check in process was fast & efficient.
I have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Ritz in KL. Amazing does not begin to describe the experience i had with my friends. The location of the hotel makes it easy to explore the streets of KL as the hotel is located in the golden triangle. The staff at the hotel went out of their way to make my stay memorable.They arranged a live musical birthday surprise for me which included some heavenly cake, they also provided cake for my friends as well. Having breakfast was a great way to start the day, the food was amazing and included both western and local cuisine . The egg station was fantastic!!! A special shout out to the staff at the Ritz, they were informative, helpful, full of useful info and friendly- too many names to remember all of them . Ashard, Vijay (doorman), Asjad, Saravanah and Kughan deserve an extra
shout out for assisting my friends and I whilst we stayed at the Ritz. Ashard accompanied me to a local clinic for a medical issue that had the potential to spoil my holiday. I will be back, the Ritz experience needs to be repeated again.
