Shiny towering edifices, Moorish architecture, and six-lane palm-lined highways, interspersed by quaint old shop houses and bustling back-alley food streets – such is Kuala Lumpur, one of Asia’s most enticing destinations brimming with fascinating cultural contrasts. Amidst this thriving city, discoverThe Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur, a new member property of Worldhotels, cocooned within its green oasis.
A lush getaway within easy reach of the city
Managed by a local hospitality company, Saujana Hotels & Resorts, this five-star hotel located in the Shah Alam business district, is five minutes from Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport, otherwise known as Subang Airport, while the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is easily accessible by a 35-minute drive. A 30-minute travel brings visitors to the dynamic Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC), the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Nestled in 160 hectares of verdant green foliage reaching out into the horizons, the hotel is a testament to the old Malay expression ‘sejauh di sana’ meaning ‘as far as the eye can see’ – from which its name is adopted.
Picturesque event venues meet top-notch facilities
Designed with the interests of business and meeting planners in mind, The Saujana Hotel boasts spaciously lavish living spaces and superb meetings facilities. Its pillar-less ballroom can accommodate up to 700 guests, complete with an extensive array of conferencing services and amenities. 16 other highly-versatile function spaces play host to a range of premier meetings and social gatherings of 10 to 250 persons; of which seven rooms are newly renovated and feature built-in charging stations for mobile devices, built-in screens and induction system.
All meeting venues overlook beautifully landscaped gardens.
Variegated terrains of championship golf
A venue of choice for many international tournaments, The Saujana Hotel is fringed by two award-winning 18-hole Championship Golf Courses, where golf aficionados and business partners get to tee-off at the property’s Palm Course and Bunga Raya Course.
A complimentary one-way shuttle service to Saujana Golf and Country Club is provided.
A smorgasbord of refined dining and the likes
The hotel offers a variety of cuisines to whet the appetite of guests. Overlooking the lake and golf course, traditional Japanese countryside favourites including immaculately presented sushi and teppanyaki are dished up at Kogetsu. Master Chefs showcase their culinary artistry in a show kitchen that is a feast for the guests’ eyes. Diners may also choose to dine in any of the three Tatami-styled private rooms.
For romantic alfresco dining, guests may indulge in homemade Italian pastas, firewood oven pizzas, and fine wines at Senja. Prime cuts of meat and delectable seafood served with signature marinades and dips in a unique open-grill dining environment are available at Charcoal, headed by Chef de Cuisine Robert Johnston, while Ti Chen at the Saujana Golf & Country Club features Malaysian Chinese specialties with a Cantonese twist.
Revitalising rooms with a view
Throughout the 250 elegantly-styled guest rooms, guests awake to views of manicured greens, a tranquil lake or that of a meticulously-maintained golf course. Housed in low rise settings, the accommodations are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, an expansive work desk with multi-media hub, a wide assortment of cable TV channels, and an extra bed for child below age 12. The hotel’s 170 newly-refurbished Deluxe and Executive Deluxe rooms are appointed with additional enhancements including Nespresso coffee machines, iPod docking stations, and 41”/50” flat screen televisions.
Holistic wellbeing and family escapades aplenty
The Spa at adjoining sister property, The Club Saujana, provides an enticing selection of facials, body polishes, massages and personalised spa rituals. Intimately tucked in a rainforest setting, expert masseuses deliver treatments that originate from Indonesia, Thailand and Tibet.
Just a 25-minute drive from the hotel, families with young children can spend an eventful day of non-stop entertainment at the popular Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, which promises over 80 exciting attractions. Avid shoppers will be thrilled by the Egyptian-inspired Sunway Pyramid Shopping Complex with close to 800 shops, a swimming pool, an archery shooting range, plus Malaysia’s only ice-skating rink.
