Good news is that Kuala Lumpur is filled with top-notch and amazing hotels to do just that.

If you’re thinking about doing a staycation in Kuala Lumpur during RMCO (and beyond), here are some of the best options to choose from. In addition to their respective reopening rates, these hotels all come with their own individual star qualities and attractions—from brilliant dining establishments to state-of-the-art facilities. Of course, they also offer rejuvenating retreats without the need to travel outside KL.
