Hotel Review: Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA, Malaysia

One of the world's leading hotel brands made its debut in Malaysia last year with the opening of Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA. With a passion for 'making moments' for its guests, this is made possible at Mövenpick Hotel KLIA with its exceptional architecture and warm hospitality.

Designed by Amir Hamzah, Senior Associate at Malaysia's award-winning HIJJAS Architects + Planners, this landmark development will feature a distinctive architectural style, reflecting Malaysia’s rich cultural heritage and the hotel’s status as a Shariah-compliant property. It blends soft building forms while showcasing Islamic architecture designs. The exterior of the hotel features intricate patterns influenced by Islamic geometric art and Kufic script – the earliest style of Islamic calligraphy that was used to record the Qur'an. These designs also extend to the banquet hall's ceilings, creating a dramatic three-dimensional effect.

The hotel is set in 7.2 hectares of landscaped gardens featuring greenery, reflective pools and streams. Inside, guests can also enjoy a bright, tropical ambience, thanks to the breathtaking 9-storey high open atrium as well as artificial date trees.  Once you step foot into the property, you will feel as though you have been transported to an exotic Middle Eastern location for your holiday.

The hotel is conveniently located just minutes away from KLIA, KLIA2 and Mitsui Premium Outlet Park, making this the ideal hotel for business travellers, stopovers or even a family staycation. Guest can enjoy complimentary shuttle transfers to and from the airport every 2 hours.

The hotel boasts a total of 333 rooms, including luxurious suites with up to two bedrooms, plus an executive lounge (Level 8) and six dining outlets, however mostly are still under renovation.

Our well-appointed room came with twin-sized beds, a work desk, spacious bathroom (with shower) and complimentary Wi-fi. It also comes with a picture window, offering a stunning view of the majestic Masjid Sultan Abdul Samad KLIA.

Temasya, their all-day dining signature restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets as well as a la carte dining options, including dishes with Malay, Chinese, European and Mediterranean origins, all prepared to halal standards.  The service is friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed both the local and Western specialities here for our dinner.

Sira is their grab-and-go lobby lounge offering Mövenpick ice-cream, local ice-kacang, coffee/tea and sweet treats. Switzerland is famous for its chocolates, and Movenpick dedicates one hour to it, known as Chocolate Hour.
