Afternoon Tea & Orchid Conservatory @ The Majestic Hotel KL

During our recent staycation at The Majestic Hotel KL, we indulged in their English afternoon tea with a Malaysian twist. Afternoon tea is served daily between 3-5pm and guests can choose to have it in 4 locations - The Tea Lounge (RM48++), Atrium at Colonial Cafe (RM48++), The Drawing Room (RM68++) or The Orchid Conservatory (RM88++).

The afternoon tea is served in an elegant three-tier stand and includes 11 sweet and savoury items and a pot of house-blend tea (BOH). You can also opt for Ronnefeldt tea, at an additional cost of RM30++ per pot.



The Tea Lounge in the Majestic Wing features an old-fashioned grid ceiling with classic cut-glass lighting and an array of comfortable arm chairs with subdued lighting from table lamps. A pianist performs here daily except Monday. Because we were having our afternoon tea with the kids, we were seated at the atrium in Colonial Cafe. Tea in the atrium is served in an ordinary white porcelain teapot and not the fine bone china teapots and plates.

The selection from the afternoon tea is excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Two types of scones are served - plain and raisin, served with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Sandwiches include smoked salmon, tuna, roast beef and my favorite being the foie gras terrine. So sinful! From the sweet side, there were madeleines, red velvet cake, fruit tart, custard tart and chocolate eclairs.

The waiting staff returned with another tray of hot items, which included cheese balls, fish cake and scotch eggs, all which were impeccably prepared.

Love the beautiful bouquet centerpiece at The Tea Lounge

The Orchid Conservatory located in the Majestic Wing, is a place of beauty. The Majestic Hotel KL is the first and only hotel in Malaysia to boast a dedicated orchid conservatory, featuring Phalaenopsis orchids. It is a special glass atrium measuring 28ft by 50ft and holds many orchid plants in full bloom. The Orchid Conservatory is open to guests having afternoon tea here or can also be booked for intimate lunches or celebratory meals.

Our butler (from our stay at the Majestic Wing) kindly arranged a visit to The Orchid Conservatory for us upon request. Phalaenopsis happens to be my favorite breed of orchid, so I had a great time admiring and photographing the beautiful flowers in the conservatory. Enjoy the photos!












Verdict: One of the best value afternoon tea around. My preferred venue for the afternoon tea would be the Tea Lounge or for a unique setting, try the afternoon tea in The Orchid Conservatory. 

Reservations recommended.

  6. Oh I can see why dining in the Orchid Conservatory is the most expensive.
    But do they also upgrade your afternoon tea?
    How were their scones?

    1. The 3-tier set served in both location will be the same. I guess you're paying for the ambiance. The Orchid Conservatory afternoon tea is very sought after and I have been told there is currently a 3-month waiting list.

      Scones were good.
