Kuala Lumpur Hotels Review – The FACE Suites Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur Hotels - The FACE Suites

Out of all the Kuala Lumpur Hotels, we chose to stay at The FACE Suites Kuala Lumpur. After 3 days and 2 nights of experience, here is a Kuala Lumpur Hotels Review of this luxury hotel.

Before traveling to Kuala Lumpur, we checked out the hotels featured on various travel sites, and compared the room rates. We wanted a hotel that is new and modern with all the latest amenities, latest technologies, and a rate that is affordable. Our budget was SGD 100 to SGD 150.

After many comparisons, we finally decided on booking with Agoda. We got the suites at around US$86 per night. That is within our budget. Best of all, after we arrived, we realized this was a really great deal!

We took the Aeroline luxury bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. The bus stopped outside Corus Hotel. We walked from there to Suria KLCC, which was opposite this hotel and within few minutes walking distance. Took some time to enjoy and take photos of the famous Petronas Twin Towers there.

We could have taken a taxi to The FACE Suites. But from the maps, we realized that the hotel was situated very near KLCC. So we walked from there to the hotel. It only took us about fifteen minutes to reach it.

Amenities 

All of the serviced apartments come with a myriad range of luxury amenities for you to indulge and pamper yourself. We know we did.

Every day we enjoyed the tea and coffee provided at the kitchenette. There was a kitchen hob, kitchen hood, microwave oven, toaster, a full size refrigerator as well as cutlery and utensil. We were impressed that many of the modern appliances are of good reputable brands like Bosch.

We were busy visiting places like the Petronas Twin Towers and Batu Caves, so we hardly had time to cook. But good to know that all we needed was available. We did make full use of the refrigerator, stocking it up with drinks and desserts.

The bathroom was always stocked with premium shampoo, conditioner, body wash, body lotions, and other grooming and washing needs. The towels were many of various sizes, and always replaced with clean ones. The efficient daily housekeeping service made sure of that. There was a hair dryer, too.

There was a high quality Bosch washing machine and dryer. This was so used by us. We would wash the clothes we wore for the day, had it dried, then tidied it with a bit of ironing with the steam iron and ironing board. Voila! The few clothes we brought lasted for days.

Of course, there were the usual IDD telephone, in-room personal safe box to keep all your valuables safe while you explore the city, LED TV with 40 ASTRO channels, and of course complimentary high speed broadband internet.


Gymnasium

Need to keep fit while traveling? The FACE Suites have got you covered. Fully fitted with the latest cardiovascular and strength machines, the gymnasium at the 51st floor is super for your workout while you enjoy fantastic views of the city.

Caution: The gymnasium is on the same floor as the Infinity Pool. Many did not make it to the gymnasium after they have seen the pool. Ha ha


Breathtaking View from the Infinity Pool

One of the hotel features that really attracted us was the Infinity Pool on the 51st Floor. It was the highest floor of the buiding where you could enjoy a stunning view of the Kuala Lumpur skyline.

The pool was truly amazing! It appeared borderless. And when you swim to the edge, you would enjoy stunning panoramic views of the city. You could see the Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.

Tip: We highly recommend experiencing the view from the Infinity Pool during the day and night. Especially sunrise, and just as the sun sets (the latter to see how the buildings light up)

Here are videos of the view during day and night:

Additional Tip: For those traveling with kids, there is a Children’s Wading Pool that is also on the 51st floor, just next to the Infinity Pool

Attractions Nearby

Many of the well known attractions are within easy access from this location. There is the KL Forest Eco Park (formerly known as Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve) that is only a walking distance of 17 minutes away. It has one of the oldest forest reserves in Malaysia.

KLCC that has Petronas Twin Towers, Suria KLCC, KLCC Park, Aquaria KLCC, plus many more interesting places is about 15 minutes away by foot. While we were there, we often visited this place as there is so much to explore.

Other attractions that are not so near but worth a mention are Bukit Bintang, Chinatown, and Batu Caves, just to name a few. All within easy reach via the Monorail or LRT.


Cafes & Restaurants

The hotel has a restaurant and a cafe; respectively Tangerine and Cafe Il Viso. We did not had time to enjoy the food and drinks there. Mostly because we wanted to experience dining out in the city.

Speaking of which, you will be spoilt for choice here. For example, there are so many cafes and restaurants at Suria KLCC. We tried the food court on the first day, and a couple of cafes and restaurants the following days. The most memorable was Madam Kwan Restaurant. Great food there! A review is coming soon.

Bukit Bintang and Chinatown also offers a wide range of local and foreign delights. At Bukit Bintang, we discovered a very fascinating cafe called DC Comics Super Heroes Store and Cafe. We are also going to write a review of this wondrous place soon. Come back soon to read about it!


Location

The FACE Suites is conveniently located along Jalan Sultan Ismail that is in the vicinity of the well known ‘Golden Triangle‘ of Kuala Lumpur. The Golden Triangle is known as the city’s shopping, commercial and entertainment hub. The hotel is also very close to Suria KLCC, Petronas Twin Towers and KL Tower.

The other areas such as Bukit Bintang, Chinatown and others are all within easy access from this serviced residences suites.

Getting Around

It is quite easy to get around Kuala Lumpur from The FACE Suites. One way, of course, is to take the cab if you have the budget. Taxis are not expensive. But do be careful to take those that go by meter, or at least the agreed rate before you start the journey.

The nearest Monorail station is Bukit Nanas, and takes about 5 minutes to reach there. The monorail can bring you to almost anywhere within the city.

Then there is the Dang Wangi LRT station, which is also about 5 minutes walk away. The LRT system is quite extensive. You can also transit to the main train lines like KTM Komuter to travel to places like the famous Batu Caves. Here is a post about Getting To Batu Caves via the train systems.

Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur – Batu Caves

Best Places To Visit In Kuala Lumpur - Batu Caves

Batu Caves is amazing! It is definitely one of the Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur! A natural wonder and such an work of art by the lovely Mother Earth.

The large stalactites and stalagmites are truly breath taking. Some even form shapes that looked strangely familiar. It is no wonder it has become one of the icons of Malaysia, and a popular tourist attraction.

We arrived in Kuala Lumpur by Aeroline bus that took us about 6 hours. It was a very comfortable ride. Upon arriving at Kuala Lumpur, we visited the Petronas Twin Towers. It was a magnificent sight to behold! And to top it off, we were delighted to find The Suites Hotel, where we stayed, an absolute pleasure.

The next day, according to our plans, we made the trip to the famous Batu Caves. Below is the video we took of our Batu Caves experience.

Getting To Batu Caves

There are many ways of Getting To Batu Caves, and we chose to go there by train. It turned out to be a comfortable ride, economical, and only took us around 80 minutes.

We shot a video about Getting To Batu Caves. To see photos & videos to show you how to get to Batu Caves, Click Here.

Batu Caves

There are many limestone hills, said to be around 400 million years old, in Selangor. And Batu Caves is one of them. What makes it unique is that it is the limestone hill that has many naturally formed caves, and temples have been built in some of these caves.

The largest of these caves, and the most well known, is the Temple Cave. The name is derived from the fact that the cave houses many Hindu shrines within its majestic high ceiling limestone caverns.

The word ‘Batu’ means ‘Stone’. So many people think that the name – Batu Caves – came from the concept that the caves are made of limestone. But the truth is the name is taken from a river that flows past the hills. The river is aptly named Sungai Batu, which means Stone River

Tip: Every cave has a different admission price. Please note that the Temple Cave is Free to enter. And opening hours may vary for each cave.

In the video, you can see a long flight of steps to the entrance of the Temple Cave. Originally, back in 1920, the steps were made of wood. Today, the steps have been rebuilt with concrete.

And the number of steps? 272!

Yes, you read it right. 272 steps that will test your fitness to the limits. Many people stop along the way to catch their breath. You can see it in the video too.

But it is all worth it!

When you arrive at the destination, you get a visual treat of awe-inspiring natural caverns that you will remember for a lifetime. I know I sure did.

Tip: Near the Temple Cave is the Dark Cave. There is a mini exhibition area that provides you information about the natural history of the entire area. And if you dare, you can explore the Dark Cave with a tour (for a reasonable price).


Magnificent Gigantic Statue of Lord  Murugan

You can’t miss it. It is the huge statue at the bottom of the steps that leads to the Temple Cave. And it is in Gold! It is the Lord Murugan Statue.

This is the tallest statue of a Hindu god in Malaysia. In the world, it is the second tallest statue of a Hindu god. Its height is 42.7 metres, which is 140 feet. The tall image took 3 years to build, and was unveiled in January 2006 during the Thaipusam festival then.


Batu Caves Temple

Deep at the heart of the Temple Cave, 100m above ground, is the murti (consecrated statue) of Sri Murugan Swami. It was placed there by an Indian trader by the name of K. Thamboosamy Pillai in 1890.

2 years later, in 1892, the annual Hindu festival – Thaipusam – was celebrated there. And has been ever since. Thaipusam is a three-day festival that is held around late January or early February. Hundreds of thousands of pilgrims converge to pay homage to Lord Murugan during this time.

Today, the cave and the temple combine to be one of the most popular Hindhu shrines outside of India.


Monkeys, Spiders, Bats and Other Natural Inhabitants

In the vast network of the caves, there are numerous natural inhabitants such as spiders, bats, snakes, and most visibly – Monkeys.

Beware the Monkey at one of the Things To See In Kuala Lumpur - Batu Caves. They look adorable but can turn fierce.

The monkeys are almost everywhere; as you climb the heart stress tester steps, and as you visit the shrine deep inside the Temple Cave. You can see them getting food and drinks from visitors.

Tip: Beware of the Monkeys! I have seen a packet of drink snatched from a visitor by a monkey. And I have heard of phones, bags, wallets, purses and more being taken away very quickly by the fast moving monkeys. So do keep your valuables close to you!

Besides the monkeys, there are lots of creatures living in the caves. Of course there will be right? This is their natural home. Visit the Dark Cave to see a mini exhibit where you can see photos of the natural history of this site as well as of these intriguing creatures.

Do visit the Batu Caves! They are truly amazing and one of the Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur.

Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur – Getting To Batu Caves

Best Places To Visit In Kuala Lumpur - Getting To Batu Caves via train

There are many ways of Getting To Batu Caves, which is one of the Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur. You can get there by car, taxi, bus or via train. We traveled from KLCC to Batu Caves using the train system in Kuala Lumpur.

Batu Caves is one of the icons of Malaysia and a very popular tourist attraction. You can read more about it in our blog post – Batu Caves.

Let’s start the journey, shall we? We began by taking the LRT from KLCC station that was at Petronas Twin Towers / Suria KLCC to KL Sentral station. Then switched to KTM Komuter line (the blue line) to travel from KL Sentral station to Batu Caves station.

In all it took us about 80 minutes because there was some time taken to find the entrances to the right lines, locate the ticket counter, understand how to pay for the tickets, etc. If you are familiar with all that, the trip should be shorter, about 60 minutes.

Along the entire route, we took photos and videos. Watch the video below to see how we traveled to Batu Caves from KLCC. Remember to turn on the subtitles for more detailed information.

From KLCC station (also known as KJ10 KLCC) to KL Sentral Station

The Malaysian train system is quite efficient and can get you to many places of interest around Kuala Lumpur as well as from Kuala Lumpur to well known sites such as Batu Caves. We started at the KLCC station.

Some parts of the train line is above ground, and some are under ground. The route from KLCC station to KL Sentral station is underground. As such, we took the escalator down and walked along a pathway to the station control area.

Tip: Make sure you are at the right station. See the station name. In this case it is KJ10 KLCC.

There was a map of the train system next to the ticketing machines. Locate that map to see how to travel from one station to another.

Map of train system to get to one of the Things To See In Kuala Lumpur - Batu Caves

We found out that KJ10 KLCC station was along the LRT Laluan Kelana Jaya line (Line 5, the red line).

To go to Batu Caves, we needed to go to KL Sentral station, and switch to the blue line that was the KTM Komuter line. That train would take us all the way to Batu Caves station, which was the last stop for that line.

With that planned route in mind, we headed to the ticketing machines that were nearby. These machines are for commuters to buy tickets for travel from one station to another.

Do note that Only Cash is accepted, there is no credit card or any other form of card payment for the tickets.

Tip: Some ticketing machines only accept coins and MYR$1 and MYR$5. Get ready some small change!

And we are not mentioning the cost of the tickets because costs can change over time.

Buying the tickets was relatively easy. You just have to click on your choice of destination. In the next screen, you make sure you have chosen the correct destination, and select the number of tickets you require. If you need more, simply click on the ‘+’ button.

The total amount to be paid is displayed. Insert the cash (in notes or coins) into the respective slots. The tickets (in this case they were blue round chips) will drop out into the collection area. And you collect your tickets, and change, if any.

We used the tickets at the turnstiles, and entered the station. Then we got down to the platform using the escalator. And when the train arrived, we boarded the train.

Tip: Make sure you board the right train. Check the signages to see which side of the platform is the train to take to get to your stop.

Arrive at KL Sentral Station

The ride from KLCC station to KL Sentral station was quite short. It only took about 12 to 14 minutes. Again, depending on when your train arrived.

At KL Sentral station. we took the escalator to the ground level, and exit the station into KL Sentral, which is a huge shopping area with lots of cafes, restaurants and amenities.

But there was no time to shop. We wanted to get to Batu Caves as quickly as possible as we knew there was much to see there.

We looked around, and it was easy to spot the KTM Komuter ticket counter. There was a large sign hanging above the counter, and a line of people queuing to buy tickets.

We bought the tickets to travel on the KTM blue line from KL Sentral station to Batu Caves station. Then we entered the station and onto the platform to wait for the train that would take us there.


From KL Sentral Station to Batu Caves Station

It was fun waiting for the train. There was a group of tourists from Japan. We knew they were Japanese because the tour guide was excitedly explaining to the group what to expect and what to do when the train arrived.

Tip: Look out for the electronic sign! It will inform you if the train that is coming is going to Batu Caves or not. And an estimated time of arrival. Don’t board the wrong train.

We waited only about 10 minutes. When the train arrived, it was very exciting. It came in really fast! (see the video to watch the excitement)

When the train stopped, there was the usual commotion and excitement as people alighted, and everyone that was waiting on the platform started to board.

When we boarded the train, we found the seating style to be similar to that of Singapore’s MRT (Mass Rapid Transit). That is, the seats were aligned to the walls of the train, and passengers faced one another.

But silly us! We were like the blind men who only saw parts of an elephant.

As we sat, we began to look at other parts of the train in front of us and behind. And we noticed that seating on other parts of the train were different from this part of the train.

There were seats that were so comfortable with high back support. And the best part was that they faced the forward motion of the train. We loved it as we could watch scenes of the city through the windows when the train started to zoom above the ground.

Tip: There are designated cabins Only For Women. Do Not Sit in these cabins if you are male or couple. (see photo below) Kindly be respectful of others’ culture, please.

When taking the KTM Komuter train to one of the Things To See In Kuala Lumpur - do take note that some cabins of the train are only for women. Do Not Sit In These Cabins. Please be respectful of their culture.

We Arrived at Batu Caves!

After about 35 to 40 minutes, we arrived at Batu Caves station! There was still a very short walk (about 5 minutes) to the actual Batu Caves. But hey, we loved how fast this trip was, and how economical too! Plus, we traveled in comfort.

Arrived at one of the Things To See In Kuala Lumpur - Batu Caves!

We had a great time at Batu Caves. Again, we took lots of photos and videos.

Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur – Petronas Twin Towers Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

Best Places To Visit In Kuala Lumpur - Petronas Twin Towers

The Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia is a sight to behold! It is definitely a must-see on your vacation itinerary and worthy to be considered as one of the Things To Do in Kuala Lumpur.


Petronas Twin Towers Kuala Lumpur Malaysia During the Day

We took the luxury bus by Aeroline to Kuala Lumpur. It started at Harbour Front in Singapore, and ended outside Corus Hotel. The Petronas Twin Towers is across the road from this hotel, only about 7 to 10 minutes walk away.

Upon arrival, which was in the afternoon, we walked over with plans to take some nice photos and videos of this icon of Malaysia. It was quite cloudy, but we managed to capture some nice shots. Here is a video of the Twin Towers taken during the day:

Here is a photo of the building taken during the day:

It looks magnificent doesn’t it? The architecture is so interesting. We love how the structure has many facets, like that of a diamond or jewel, near the top.


Petronas Twin Towers Kuala Lumpur Malaysia At Night

After the morning shoot of the Twin Towers, we headed for The Face Suites Hotel Kuala Lumpur where we checked in and stayed for a few days. Also took some photos and videos of this lovely new hotel, which we will share in a future blog post.

In the evening, we had a look a the popular infinity pool of the hotel. The infinity pool is popular because of the amazing view of the city and the Petronas Twin Towers as well as KL Tower.

In fact, the featured video (on our home page) was one of the photos taken from the infinity pool of the hotel.

Watch the video of the Infinity Pool on our review of The Face Suites Hotel, Click Here!

We were hungry, and thought why not go to Suria KLCC and have dinner? At the same time, we could grab the opportunity to take photos and videos of the Twin Towers at night.

The video below was taken when we were very close to the building. Just below it in fact! We started with a shot of the fountain below and slowly panned all the way up to the top where the spires are.

Things to Do in Kuala Lumpur – Petronas Twin Towers during the night

While the Petronas Twin Towers Kuala is majestic during the day, it dazzles by night. The tall building sparkles like a gem from a distance, and shines brilliantly at close quarters.

Here is a photo of the sparkling skyscraper taken during the night:

Things To See In Kuala Lumpur - the Petronas Twin Towers at night

There are always many people, mostly tourists, hanging around the garden and mini fountain area on the ground level, just outside the main entrance of the structure. Do not be intimidated. Just dive in and find some space to get that photo of you and the Twin Towers. Thankfully, people are generally nice, and everybody gets a chance for a photo of a lifetime.

* Photo Tip 1: Get across the street to get a better shot of the Twin Towers. Some people stop at one of those islands in the middle of the high traffic roads. Be careful. Safety first.

Photo Tip 2: It is not an easy task to capture your entire body and the entire Twin Towers in a single frame. But it can be done! Stand further away from the Twin Towers, and get your friend to squat really low to take the photo from a very low angle to get it all in the photo frame. Alternatively, some people stand on one of the pedestals and their friend simply kneel as low as possible to get that money shot. (you’ll know what I mean when you are there)


More Info About Petronas Twin Towers Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

So how tall is the Petronas Twin Towers of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia? It is recorded as the tallest building in the world, that is from 1998 to 2004, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH).

At an unbelievable height of 451.9 metres, the 88-storey twin structure is deemed by many as the crown jewel of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. It is now an icon of Malaysia, along with the nearby Kuala Lumpur Tower.

This international icon of Kuala Lumpur Malaysia was designed by Argentine architect Cesar Pelli. He chose a distinctive postmodern style to create a 21st-century icon for the city.

You can visit the Petronas Twin Towers on a more personal level by taking a tour. There are interactive displays and an elevator with futuristic edge that will take you 170 metres up to the Skybridge.


The Skybridge

The Skybridge (you can see in the photos and videos of it above) connects the two towers on the 41st and 42nd floors, and is the world’s highest 2-storey bridge. The tour also takes you even higher to level 86, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of Kuala Lumpur.

* Interesting Fact: The Skybridge is designed to slide in and out of the towers, swaying several feet towards and away from each other, to prevent it from breaking during high winds.

Do note that the Skybridge is limited to 1,000 visitors per day, and you need to get a ticket to get up there. So do get your tickets early as it does get sold out quickly.

Also, note that visitors are allowed to visit during specific hours, and some days access can be closed too. So do check with the ticketing counter for more details, or you can visit the Petronas Twin Towers website for more info.


Suria KLCC

On the lower levels of the Petronas Twin Towers, there is Suria KLCC. This is a upmarket retail mall that spans 140,000 square meters. Tenants in the mall include luxury goods, high-street labels, food court, restaurants, cafes and many other types of tenants as well as facilities and amenities.

On the first day we arrived, we were so hungry that we did not want to wait in long queues at cafes and restaurants. So we headed for the food court, and had nasi lemak (a local dish with rice flavoured with coconut, often comes with chicken wing or fish, egg and cucumber plus other optional food). Big mistake. It was not very good.

On the last day, we had time, and explored a bit more. We chanced upon Madam Kwan’s. To be honest, I did hear about Madam Kwan’s before. So we tried it. And the food was very good.

As mentioned, Suria KLCC spans 140,000 square meters. So there’s a lot of shopping. And a lot to see. Inside Suria KLCC, there are also an art gallery, a philharmonic theatre, an underwater aquarium and also a Science center. It is no wonder that Suria KLCC is considered as one of the largest shopping malls in Malaysia.

We didn’t manage to experience everything because we had plans for other exciting places to visit, but some of Suria KLCC was good enough for this trip.


KLCC Park and Fountain

We read about the fountain and light show that is displayed every night. Earlier during the day, just so happened when we had our lunch at the food court, we sat at a table that had a view of the park and fountain.

We told ourselves that if we were around the area, and the timing was right, we would enjoy this visual and sound treat. As luck would have it, after dinner that night, we were just in time to catch the fountain light show as it started. Here is the video of the performance:

The park and fountain area has jogging and walking paths, wading pools and a children’s playground that is ideal for daytime fun, too. The photo below was taken from the park and fountain area, at the entrance that led to Suria KLCC.
