Ramada Suites Kuala Lumpur City Centre is ideally located in the upscale Bukit Bintang district near corporate hubs and tourist hotspots.

KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA - Bolstering its growing portfolio of hotels in South East Asia, hospitality powerhouse Wyndham Hotel Group has entered Malaysia’s capital city with the opening of the 107-room Ramada Suites Kuala Lumpur City Centre.

Formerly known as Invito Hotel Suites, the all-suite hotel now operates under the Ramada brand flag thanks to a franchise agreement between Trinidad Signature Suites Sdn Bhd and Wyndham Hotel Group.

This latest Ramada hotel is the first of five new Wyndham Hotel Group locations due to open in Malaysia before Q4 2019, including the 170-room Ramada Resort Lumut, the 257-room Days Fraser Business Park Kuala Lumpur, the 322-room Ramada Encore Meridin Johor Bahru and the 322-room Ramada Meridin Johor Bahru.

With improved flight routes and upgraded transport infrastructure, Kuala Lumpur attracted 26 million visitor arrivals in 2016, up four per cent on the previous year, creating greater demand for quality hotels across the city. In 2017, market researcher Euromonitor International listed the city at number 10 in its Top 100 City Destinations for the year, a sign of its rising popularity among global travellers.

Our expansion in Kuala Lumpur, one of Asia’s key gateway cities, is a sign of our continued commitment to building a powerful network of hotels and resorts across South East Asia, particularly in key capital cities, to meet rising demands,” said Barry Robinson, President and Managing Director of Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim.

Ramada KLCC’s strategic location in the upscale Bukit Bintang district will appeal to both business travellers and leisure guests, who will be well-connected to the city’s major corporate precincts and famous landmarks.”

Ramada KLCC is a 10-minute drive to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers and Suria KLCC retail precinct, and is within walking distance of the Pavilion KL luxury shopping mall.

The hotel offers 107 spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments, each with a balcony featuring sweeping city views, a kitchenette with fridge and microwave, a work desk, and an ensuite bathroom. The largest room, a 90 square metre two-bedroom Executive Suite, boasts separate dining and seating areas, a fully equipped kitchen, and laundry facilities.

Ramada KLCC provides guests with an outdoor infinity swimming pool, a 24-hour gym, all-day dining at the onsite restaurant and bar, and free Wi-Fi across all guestrooms and public areas.

Managing Director of Trinidad Holdings Sdn Bhd, Dato Naresh Mohan, said, “It was a clear decision for us to rebrand the property to Ramada, an international brand trusted by travellers around the world. We look forward to tapping into Wyndham’s extensive global network and showcasing Ramada’s high standards and service to create exceptional experiences for our guests.”

Hotel Manager Rajesh Daswani added, “We are excited to welcome guests to Ramada KLCC for a home-away-from-home experience in the heart of town. Guests can expect service that exceeds expectations from our team of warm and welcoming ambassadors.”
