Luxury hotels: newly-revamped properties to check into

Complete your jet-setting lifestyle with stays at these hotels around the world.

With new hotels entering the market every year, older hotels have felt the pressure to renew themselves. This is in spite of already having established a very sound reputation that is equivalent to grande dame or cult status for some of them. Here are our picks of the top hotel rebranding or revamp in recent years.

  • The Ritz Carlton KL

    Ritz Carlton Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

    As far as luxury hotels go, the Ritz Carlton Kuala Lumpur was considered an institution in the Malaysian capital for nearly 20 years. It has upheld that status in recent years, partly due to a multi-million dollar overhaul completed in 2016 led by New York-based design studio Alexandra Champalimaud. Gone are the masculine-looking dark wood panels, and strong colour contrasts in the bedrooms. The current look in all 364 guestrooms and suites, restaurants and public spaces, is composed of soothing greys and creams. Though the streets of Kuala Lumpur city centre are paved with good food, consider dining in during your stay. The Library, a new restaurant in the hotel furnished like a well-appointed home library with a good collection of books, serves very well executed French cuisine which changes daily.

    168, Jalan Imbi, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Tel: +60 3-2142-8000.
