IHG® (InterContinental Hotels Group), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, has signed a management agreement with LQ Retail Sdn Bhd to open Malaysia’s first Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants in 2023 at The Exchange TRX – a new experience-led lifestyle destination.
Kimpton now operates in more than 70 hotels and 85 restaurants, bars and lounges across urban locations, resort destinations around the world. From its playful and sophisticated design to award-winning restaurants and bars, Kimpton is known for creating immersive guest moments that are all about genuine human connections. The 471-room design-led Kimpton Kuala Lumpur, with its youthful and playful brand personality will reinvent a sophisticated and highly personalised lifestyle experience expected by today’s modern travellers that is aligned with TRX’s profile as the capital city’s new CBD.
The property will feature three food and beverage outlets including a rooftop bar & restaurant and a deli-grocer café. Guests can enjoy the views from the outdoor rooftop swimming pool or break a sweat in the gym. There will be a range of unique meeting and event spaces to cater to a wide range of activities, from small intimate gatherings to larger energetic social events.
Kuala Lumpur’s Kimpton will be part of The Exchange TRX, which sits at the heart of the district that is benchmarked against top global financial hubs such as London’s Canary Wharf, Singapore’s Marina Bay and Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre. It will feature world-class residential, commercial, entertainment and events, complete with lifestyle offers which will be seamlessly integrated with an activated 10-acre public park – the new green heart of the city.
LQ Retail Sdn Bhd is a joint venture between Lendlease, an international property and infrastructure group and TRX City Sdn Bhd, the master developer of Malaysia’s upcoming international financial district, Tun Razak Exchange (TRX).
