Hello!! Sorry for the blog updates hiatus! Been snoozing a while as well you know, my body is sorta coping to our newest family member soon #miniC *melts* Despite the morning sickness, I’m doing pretty well when it comes to appetite LOL. Eating more but the body just doesn’t feel like trying new things and going further places initially. No worries! Doing better now and trying to keep my blogging mood back on track 🙂 Enough with my pregnancy stories and time to check out a hotel that bring new vibes & comfortable staying experience right in the heart of KL city centre.
We’re sure most of you have heard a lot about Hotel Vistana Kuala Lumpur Titiwangsa. This hotel have been in the city for many years now (since 1995) and if you have ever been to Vistana, you would totally get a whole new experience unlike before. A major refurbishment have been done just this year and they aim to move the hotel into a different ambiance, increasing overall yield in terms of designs and concept. Such a refurbishment involves major works on guest floors creating new guest rooms from redundant space, changing room layouts and decos, adding comfort cooling, introducing new guest facilities including the gym room, complete replacement of finishes, furniture, fittings and equipment. You should come explore yourself 🙂
VIBRANCE, VERVE, VALUE
A new motto that Vistana have nailed it
Let’s talk about Vibrance.
Compared to the old Vistana that was first opened in 1995, the refurbishment done in 2014 is definitely worth a praise as they brought the right vibes through their trained staffs. Later that we know that younger members of their team are handpicked from existing networks within YTL Hotels, that includes YTL International College of Hotel Management. Very well trained 🙂 Their new concept has also added vibrance to the hotel itself. Upon entering the main entrance to the lobby, you’ll be welcomed by a young and refreshed outlook generally, targeting to cater business and dynamic modern travellers these days.
An open concept where the lobby, restaurant as well as the barista counter resides together unbounded by walls 🙂
We had our one night #staycation here! We stayed in their Executive Deluxe Room which has the stylish outlook and ready for business, the new Executive Deluxe Room is modern and functionally designed to maximise comfort and utility, perfect for rest and work. This is of great Value too as you would definitely get good savings with their great offers. Check out their room rates and offers through the official website HERE.

And as for Verve, one can stay connected to what’s important with the facilities they provide, especially for people on-the-go or business travellers like the gym or the small private meeting area Hub 247.
Enjoy a workout at your convenience, any time of the day, at their 24-hour gym equipped with the latest FreeMotion fitness equipment.
Do a few laps around the pool to start the morning energised or just take a dip to relax your muscles after a long meeting.
For business communications, facilities and online networking, Hub 247 keeps you efficient while on-the-go with quick print stations and wireless internet. A small area that allows privacy. We spent our afternoon chilling out in the hub with coffee & drinks before our evening dip at the pool!
View from the Hub
Located just right next to Hub 247, this would be the perfect place to chill out with coffee while you grab some light bites like salad, sandwiches, cookies & local snacks etc. This is a grab-and-go coffee bar 🙂 Well, you can too order smoothies, beers or wine. Like us, upon arrival, we grabbed a cup of coffee & hot chocolate to warm us up in the room.
Just next to the reception the cafe is easily spotted. They serve casual Asian and Western cuisine offering starters, hot dishes as well as desserts. A buffet spread is available during breakfast & lunch. As for dinner, Vistana KL is now serving ala carte that generated a greater response from the crowd.
Our dinner experience at the cafe was great as they offer great selections of starters, main course as well as desserts. For drinks, the serve from the barista.
Freshen up with a dose of Apple Juice 🙂
Soup of the Day (Cream of Pumpkin soup) – RM10
Salad of the Day – RM10
Mixed green salad with choice of thousand island or vinaigrette dressing. We would recommend you to go for the vinaigrette as it was so delicious and healthy at the same time! Must try.
Spaghetti Aglio Olio with Prawns – RM20
Simplicity at its best. Tasty with a hint of spiciness and the prawns were fresh too. However we personally thought the baguette was unnecessary. Haha.
Classic Chicken Chop – RM20
Grilled chicken chop with mushroom sauce served with french fries and garden salad. The chicken’s texture was just right and the sauce was flavoursome. But we thought the fries doesn’t really match as they should use perhaps potato wedges or baked potatoes instead.
Selection of pastries of the day – RM12
Chocolate fudge banana split – RM12
Breakfast the next day before checking out 🙂
The buffet table, offering a spread of oriental, local & western breakfast all together.
