I have been nagging Chris for a short holiday to the Cameron Highlands Resort for a retreat while enjoying a relaxing afternoon tea session up in the cool surroundings, but due to time constrain lately, we worked on something else
Just when we needed some break from work, a browse through the net for “Hi Tea in KL” and Majestic pops out.
Dated the BFF along for the girly catch up and here we are:
The Tea Lounge @ Majestic Kuala Lumpur
The Orchid Room (to be precise)
The Tea Lounge is elegantly located open to the breezes off the lawn fronting the hotel. There are cosy arrays of arm chairs with vintage table lamps chanting subdued lightings that provide a beautiful setting for an English Afternoon Tea Along with a pianist playing the classy chords with his grand piano, relaxation is bliss.
But we prefer a different environment this round. Since we have showed love for The Lobby Lounge @ Ritz Carlton KL. Tee-Hee 😀
The Orchid Room is actually Majestic KL’s Orchid Conservatory,showcasing a hanging garden and orchidscape within a glass atrium. We would say it is definitely one botanical wonder that you would love to see and experience.
The conservatory features a seasonal range of phalaenopsis orchids; with thousands of stunning large-petaled blooms displayed in a re-creation of their natural habitat. As the seasons progress, so do the variety of orchids on display changes!
FYI is room is maintained at a lower temperature thus it’s very cooling when seated inside. OMG! My Cameron Highlands retreat “feel-alike”! *grin*
**Please do take note that due to limited seats in the Orchid Room/ Conservatory, an advance reservation/ booking is certainly necessary to avoid disappointment.
The afternoon tea set is inclusive of:
- One pot of Majestic Tea
- 6 food items can be chosen for RM68++ and 8 items for RM78++ (comes in pretty tiers)
- An additional RM20++ per pax will be charged if you wish to be seated in the Orchid Room
- These Bites come in pairs, thus one order is sufficient for 2
- This treat runs from 3pm – 6:30pm daily
UPDATED (as of July 2013): Price have been revised as below:
- RM88++ per pax (if choose to be seated in the Orchid Room)
- RM48++ per pax (tea lounge area)
- RM68++ per pax (if choose to be seated in the Drawing Room)
Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage

Love their teapots and teacups as they are stately fine china. One let down was, they don’t provide teapot warmers like Ritz Carlton do. As we were seated in a cooler room, the tea gets cold fast.
Alfalfa, Tuna mayo, Smoked salmon, Foie Gras sandwiches were great
Deep fried potato balls, deep fried Quail Eggs, Curry Puffs incorporating a Malaysian twist.
Mini Beef slices Sandwich were tender & sweet as well.
We love all the cakes & tarts they serve!
Ranging from mixed berry tarts, rapsberry cheese tart, Chocolate & Orange éclair, peanut butter shortcake.
**However, their Scones were a let down. Dry and lack of buttery taste & texture.

Verdict: Perfect environment. Great desserts & savouries (except the scones) but lack of tea choices 😛
