Hilton has announced the signing of a management agreement with Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) to open Conrad Kuala Lumpur in the heart of the Malaysian capital. Slated for completion in 2021, the entry of the 544-room new-build hotel will mark the launch of Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton’s global luxury brand, in Malaysia.
“We are delighted to grow our luxury brand presence with our first Conrad property in Malaysia,” said Martin Rinck, executive vice president and global head of Hilton. “In the heart of Kuala Lumpur, the Conrad will be underpinned by our intuitive service as well as the seamless connection between contemporary design, leading innovation and curated art that inspires our globally connected travellers.”
Located within the prime Golden Triangle district of Kuala Lumpur and one hour by car from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the hotel will be part of a mixed-use development that also comprises an office tower.
Guests will enjoy ease of accessibility to Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Raja Chulan, both well-connected to major thoroughfares in the city, and to tourist attractions such as the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and Bukit Bintang, one of Kuala Lumpur’s most prominent retail and entertainment belts.
