Hilton expands its luxury footprint in Malaysia with the opening its first Waldorf Astoria in the country's capital in 2024.

Developed and owned by Tradewinds Corporation Berhad, Waldorf Astoria Kuala Lumpur will begin construction and renovation by the third quarter of this year.

The hotel will feature 279 suites, with sizes starting from 76 square metres. Meeting spaces comprise a total of 3,390 sqm, which will include a 1,845 sqm-ballroom. Five F&B outlets will be available, including the Waldorf Astoria brand's signature lounge and bar Peacock Alley, as well as a wellness centre.

The Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) will be within walking distance of the hotel, as will top leisure attractions in the city's Golden Triangle, such as Pavilion Mall and Suria KLCC in the Bukit Bintang shopping and entertainment district. Access will be convenient with the KL Sentral station and Kuala Lumpur International Airport being 10 minutes and an hour’s drive, respectively.

“With Waldorf Astoria Kuala Lumpur set to be a remarkable icon in the heart of the city, coupled with the upcoming opening of our first Conrad hotel in the country, we will welcome two of our award-winning luxury brands within a year of each other which will bolster our ability to deliver truly exceptional and memorable experiences to luxury travelers in the coming years,” said Nils-Arne Schroeder, vice president, Luxury – Asia Pacific, Hilton.
