There’s even a loft equipped to be a cosy art studio

Taking your passions with you when you travel has taken on new meaning. At the newly opened Kloe Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, even your room can be a reflection of your personal creative pursuits, thanks to one-of-a-kind loft rooms themed after passion points like music, food, books, art and nature.

The highlight of the 85-room boutique property, found within the hip and happening Bukit Bintang district, are five unique loft rooms. In the Room to Listen for instance, that’s outfitted with the musically-inclined in mind, find a built-in sound system, vinyl records and turntable, plus lounge furniture for you to sink into as you go on an aural journey of your choice.


Room to Listen


Room to Taste

Among the other lofts, a hot favourite has got to be the food-centric Room to Taste, that’s equipped with a personal kitchen, communal dining table, cookbooks, and even a pantry with artisanal produce. It’s perfect for hosting a small dinner party as you show off your culinary prowess. You can’t actually cook in this room, but the facilities are sufficient for finishing touches and prep work.


Lucky Coffee

Other than the loft rooms, we find the hotel’s F&B offerings to be a draw as well. At the lobby you’ll find Lucky Coffee (sister cafe of LOKL Coffee Company in KL) dishing out aromatic brews and casual eats. Then there’s Monroe, a California-styled bistro serving up comfort food suitable for the whole family.

But what we’re most excited about is cocktail bar The Secret Mermaid. Yes, it’s by the folks behind the speakeasy of the same name in Singapore, and it’s set to offer the largest collection of American spirits available in Kuala Lumpur.


Bathroom with Aesop amenities


Swimming pool

Elevating the stay experience further are creature comforts like Aesop amenities in the bathroom, a sizable pool and a range of yoga, meditation and fitness sessions that the hotel conducts on-site. Time to book that short getaway you’ve always needed.


Kloe Hotel is at 227 Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Rates start from RM400 ($134) for a city room, up to RM700+ for the loft rooms.
