This Malaysian Eco-Hotel Is Making a Statement

[SPONSORED CONTENT] Element Kuala Lumpur offers breathtaking views and serious environmental credentials.

Published on Mar 7, 2018

They say it’s not easy being green, but some pioneering hotels are taking the extra effort and steps needed to do the right thing for the planet. Built green from the ground up, the stylish Element Kuala Lumpur boasts a host of eco-friendly features including a rainwater harvesting system, LED lighting, saltwater swimming pools free from chlorine and other chemicals, indoor, filtered tap water, and energy-efficient appliances. There’s even a charging station for hybrid vehicles and aNSF certified filtered water system as an alternative to plastic water bottles. All these efforts towards being a local leader in sustainability have earned the hotel Green Building Index (GBI) certification. 

While the hotel’s efforts to manage its carbon footprint are admirable, there are plenty of other reasons to visit. For starters, Element Kuala Lumpur sports an unbeatable central location in the fourth tallest building in Malaysia. There’s an on-site gallery, as well as an evocative light installation by Venezuelan artist Claudia Bueno on level 40. 

Guests can stay in shape by working out at the state-of-the-art fitness center, taking advantage of the Bike Lending Programme, or going for a swim on the 39th floor while enjoying a stunning view of the Petronas Twin Towers. A similarly spectacular panorama can be viewed from TRACE Restaurant & Bar, which offers craft cocktails and gourmet fare on the 40th floor. Show up from 5:30pm to 7pm, Mondays to Thursdays for complimentary Relax Happy Hour, or swing by during the weekends from 1pm to 5pm for ARTEASTRY at TRACE, a sophisticated high tea that merges delectable pastries with high design.

Finally, the Element Kuala Lumpur is ideal for everyone from families in need of a staycation to business travelers on the go. Families or couples looking for a little extra space will love the 120 one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, while the 132 studio units still offer spacious accommodations for couples and solo travelers. Should you find yourself tempted to stay longer, the hotel has tailored packages for extended stays of 14 or more nights.
