The Majestic Hotel KL Time Travel for Gentlemen

[12/09/13] 

For all this looking to the future to solve the world’s problems, there are many among the male fraternity that look with envy at the golden years past. In the era of Capone and Babe Ruth, Flynn and Shaw - a time of true distinction among the sexes - men could convene with their brethren in suitable surrounds, waited on by white gloved bartenders and imbibed with lovingly-produced spirits between games of Rummy and rounds of billiards. This was a time when moustaches were coveted, when cocktails were crafted, and when regulars were revered, their tastes committed to memory by sommeliers and cigar stewards.

Step back in time at the Majestic Kuala Lumpur, an infinitely-elegant house of slumber that recently emerged from a seven year renovation, propelling it to the Malaysian capital’s luxury forefront. Have your butler check you into one of the sumptuous suites in the Majestic Wing, where the sophistication of the tropical Art Deco era lives on with the help of a few modern touches. Next, revel in a traditional hot towel shave at the hotel’s Truefitt & Hill barbershop, and be fitted for a new cashmere pinstripe by the resident tailor, before slipping into your new monogramed smoking jacket and retiring to the amenities of The Smoke House above. This decadently masculine space includes a private cards room, screening room and cigar lounge as well as a bartender who knows a thing or two about Negronis.

Some times are worth revisiting.
