Hotels in Malaysia

Fitting with a diverse landscape, Malaysia hotels range from chic urban boutique hotels to jungle eco-lodges to beach resorts. One of the most luxurious hotels in Malaysia is the Datai, located in the Langkawi archipelago. The suites and villas of the hotels are set in a verdant rainforest, and the hotel contains two pools, a private beach, and an exclusive 18-hole championship golf course. If in the historic city of Penang, stay at the Straits Collection hotel. Evocative of the city’s culture, the Straits Collection is located in a row of converted Chinese shop houses.

The Gayana Eco Resort off the coast of Borneo is one of the top eco-friendly hotels in Malaysia. The resort has 52 luxury villas set stunningly over the water. Guests can enjoy jungle trekking, kayaking, or can join the hotel’s Marine Ecology Research Centre by replanting coral. The Mandarin Oriental in Kuala Lumpur is conveniently located between the City Center Park and the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. The rooms are luxuriously decorated, and the hotel is home to one of the best nightclubs and bars in town. Check out our top picks for the best hotels in Malaysia.
