IHG Hotels & Resorts opens its first Hotel Indigo in the heart of Kuala Lumpur

The official opening of Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on The Park is located in the Golden Triangle. The 180-room urban oasis overlooks picturesque Bukit Nanas and is flanked by KL Forest Eco Park.

Sustainability in design is also a big focal point of the newly opened hotel. Upon entering the lobby, guests are greeted by a living vertical garden, a distinctive central staircase constructed from old railway sleepers and reinforcement steel bars from the hotel site during construction, and a large- scale installation by GA Design made entirely from recycled plastic bottles. In addition, there are feature lights created from old bottles, artwork created utilising old books and reception desks from rescued tree roots sourced within Malaysia.

Every corner of the property is filled with local character and distinctly Malaysian motifs—from the tiffin
carriers and Hap Seng cracker tins as well as the rattan furniture motifs that grace the hotel
guestrooms, to ornate hand-painted Peranakan tiles, and pages from the nostalgic Chinese calendar
that line the interior of the wardrobes, Hotel Indigo Kuala Lumpur on the Park offers a fresh
perspective of its neighbourhood, distilling its authenticity and charm into beautifully intimate spaces
that honour the history and traditions of its locale while encouraging guests to uncover all that makes
Kuala Lumpur so vibrant and unique.

With the country known for its incredible multicultural cuisine, guests at the property will not have to
wander far for a taste of Malaysia. At Wok Star, guests will be able to enjoy the best of local cuisine
while those on the hunt for a great steak, can dine at The Silver Monkey.

On the rooftop is a 24-hour fitness centre and an outdoor pool, offering guests a bird’s-eye view of
Kuala Lumpur’s intriguing cityscape: its soaring skyscrapers interposed with heritage buildings and
charming enclaves to form the lingua franca of Malaysia’s diverse culture. Additional hotel amenities
include three flexible event spaces with one overlooking KL Tower.
