Kuala Lumpur – An urban haven within the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, The RuMa Hotel and Residences will be the latest luxury hotel by Urban Resort Concepts (URC) and thecompany’s first development outside of China, set to open in late 2018.
Adding to URC’s increasingly global portfolio of properties, The RuMa will become the only hotel in Kuala Lumpur to join The Leading Hotels of the World – a collection of more than 400 luxury hotels around the world to embody the very essence of their destination – and welcome guests to take a voyage into the culture and heritage of Malaysia, past and present.
Inspired by the rich and colourful history of Malaysia, The RuMa weaves the local with the contemporary to craft a cultural revival in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. In collaboration with Shanghai-based design firm MQ-studio, the hotel’s interiors will exemplify URC’s hallmark designprinciples, integrating luxurious and understated metaphorical design throughout a modern space uniquely crafted with cultural influences by local artisans. The hotel’s 253 elegant guest rooms and suites will feature handcrafted and artisanal furniture amidst awe-inspiring views of the iconic Petronas Towers and a guestroom experience unlike any other in the capital today.
The RuMa experience encompasses the spirit of intuitiveness and generosity at its very core. With uncompromising standards of aesthetics and service, the hotel connects its guests to the quintessential Malaysian experience rooted in authenticity and context by playing host to locality. Sure to redefine the luxury hotel guest experience landscape in Kuala Lumpur, the many inclusions and benefits at The RuMa will include 24-hour check-in and check-out, complimentary access to the fully stocked mini-bar and breakfast anywhere in the hotel.
With General Manager Guido Farina at the helm, The RuMa’s philosophy of “hostmanship”follows through all spaces and services of the hotel, including the 24-hour state-of-the-art gym and UR SPA, a stylish, genderless space of revitalisation for guests seeking tangible and result- driven treatments based on the principles of modern science and ancient healing.
The RuMa’s modern Malaysian eatery, ATAS, will be the hotel’s flagship restaurant where guestscan embark on a culinary journey through the Malay Peninsula. Led by Executive Chef Tyson Gee, diners will discover a new appreciation for local provenance, with a seasonal menu that highlights the unique flavours of the freshest, locally produce and heirloom ingredients. With a flair for the transformational, Gee will borrow from the culinary cultures of Malaysia, loved or lost, to inspire a cuisine unlike any other – one that is entirely original yet distinctly Malaysian in taste.
