On my first night, I went to Punch Bar & Lounge, and tried their Apple Quencher mocktail. I rarely drink alcohol, so their mocktail selections were just perfect for me. I enjoyed it while chilling at one of their colorful art deco chairs.
The following day, I also got the chance to try their English Afternoon Tea (only offered on weekends). I didn’t know that the set was good for two people, so I had a hard time finishing it off. In fact, I was so full after that I had to skip dinner.
Also on my first night, I had dinner at Hugo’s on 6 which is located at the pool area.
The theme was BBQ Sensation so I gorged on chicken and beef satay, grilled lamb, shawarma, grilled corn on the cob, among others.
Fresh salads, seafood, paella, fruits, desserts etc. were also served.
There was even a saxophone player who performed that night, so guests enjoyed dinner while simultaneously entertained by the music and the view.
A quiet Kembali Kitchen at noon. Guests have either checked out or already wandering about in KL at this time.
Now, let’s talk about one of my favorite hotel breakfasts ever served at Kembali Kitchen!
Kembali Kitchen pays homage to Malaysia’s multicultural society by highlighting Malaysian, Chinese, and Indian dishes. Western, and even Mediterranean fare are available as well. Additionally, there’s live omelet, pancake and waffle, and noodle stations.
I’ll tell you a little secret: I pigged out on roti canai paired with either hummus or baba ganoush every breakfast. :p
My stay coincided with Hari Raya so you can just imagine how busy it was at the buffet breakfast, but the staff tried their best to manage the queue. They were also quick to ‘bus out’ tables, and food warmers were constantly replenished.
I also had the privilege of trying out Bhuvana Spa Luxe. It was a real treat for my weary body. Imagine the torture my back and shoulders suffered after lugging my bags for 2 weeks through Thailand and Laos.
I had a one-hour aromatherapy massage which started with gentle stroking, kneading and rubbing of tight muscles using essential oils to release tension.
My therapist, Yana, was really really good. Even without telling her, she started with my back, and I think I actually heard my spine pop as if it was suddenly properly aligned. haha I immediately felt the tension went away and my muscles started to relax.
It was a really blissful experience.
Everyone at Best Western Premier Dua Sentral was really nice, courteous, attentive, and were dedicated in ensuring that guests have a pleasurable stay that I didn’t go out the whole time I was there.
