This 5 Star hotel with private oasis in Shah Alam is perfect for those wanting to escape the rush of Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, and take in the surroundings of Shah Alam, a quieter suburban neighbourhood. Despite its location outside of KL’s centre, the hotel runs regular complimentary shuttle buses into the city which take just 30 minutes. It is the hotel’s highly desirable location as well as its luxury appeal that sets it apart from others, as it is also only 40 minutes by car from both of the major city airports.

The satellite district of Shah Alam itself has much to offer in terms of tourist attractions, meaning that guests needn’t venture into KL on every day of their trip. The town is most famous for the iconic Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque, or simply Blue Mosque as it is affectionately known as. Thought to be the largest of its kind in Malaysia, the mosque features an instantly recognisable silver and blue dome and is set in the picturesque tropical Gardens of Islamic Arts, which acts as an open air exhibit of sculpture and paintings kept in spiritual sanctuaries.

Hotel guests can also immerse themselves in typical Malaysian culture by paying a visit to downtown Shah Alam and its extensive flea markets. Popular with locals as a meeting point and location for open-air theatre and live music, the market area also hosts numerous street food stalls specialising in authentic Malaysian delicacies and typical dishes. Alternatively, guests travelling as a family may wish to spend a day at the Wet World water theme park which boasts a selection of log flumes, waterslides and other attractions sure to keep kids occupied.

With the bright lights of Kuala Lumpur only 30 minutes away, guests have the choice of numerous iconic landmarks and attractions to visit and experience. Marvel at the Petronas Towers, the tallest twin buildings in the world, or dedicate a day to indulging in retail therapy in any one of KL’s premium shopping malls. As well as being a futuristic metropolis, Kuala Lumpur is also steeped in heritage, and is home to numerous sites of religious and historical importance. Most significant of these are the Batu Caves, a network of tunnels used as an essential pilgrimage site for Hindus. Protected by a 140ft Hindu deity, the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, the caves are extremely popular with tourists for their spiritual value and also for the cheeky troupe of macaque monkeys that call the cave temple home.
