Nestled right in the centre of Kuala Lumpur is an iconic name you may have heard from the ’70s, Hotel Equatorial. Since its inception, it’s garnered international fame as a premier five-star destination. However, the hotel officially closed its doors in 2012 to usher in something bigger and better.
Fast forward to 2019, the venue finally reopens in the same location with a new identity: EQ. Rising 52 storeys high, the tower now boasts an urban and sophisticated design in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle fitted with a mix of industrial touches and soft elements.
Sleek, contemporary rooms.
Continuing the legacy of providing quality service and hospitality, the hotel’s 440 rooms and suites are all luxuriously decorated featuring cool tones, warm lighting and tropical patterns. Choose from its Deluxe or Premier Rooms and Studio, Executive, Presidential or AHA Suites. What’s more is that the rooms are strategically designed so guests can enjoy the views of the city from every vantage point. Guests who book their stay on the club floor will get to access the Equator club lounge too!
Recover and relax
For some time away from the city’s hustle, head over to Sanctum Wellness on the 29th floor to indulge in the hotel’s lavish spa and gym. If you’re looking for some fresh air then the hotel’s infinity pool is sure to please your senses.
Wine and dine
Expect to see EQ’s original restaurants like Kampachi – the city’s multi-award winning Japanese restaurant, Nipah – an all-day dining Pan Asian restaurant and Étoile – an edgy-chic ‘street cafe’ serving up contemporary food and drinks. The hotel also makes way for newcomers like the Bottega Lounge cocktail bar and Sky51 – an entire floor offering gourmet cuisines, fine wines and cocktails, and stunning views.
