Unveiling A New Le Meridien

Le Meridien unveiled its new looks recently. A great departure from its previous look and feel that I felt was kinda cold except for Favola and Prime. This new look and feel is also known as The Le Meridien HUB.  This unique lobby concept inspired by Le Meridien’s Global Cultural Curator Jerome Sans is aesthetically comfortable and cozy.

The Le Meridien HUB will be offering guest an eye opening experience from the moment they set into Le Meridien. Guests can expect to be thrilled and surprised with curated art activities, coffee and chocolate culture.

A gastronomic adventure also awaits guests with Gastro Sentral with its modern interpretation of classic pub and local comfort food. Latitude 03 with its signature espresso machine will entice guests with is coffee offerings and a variety of premium VERO chocolates. 

The new look and feel also extends to the ballroom and function rooms. Spanning over 1,300 square metres, each room is graced with stately street names from Kuala Lumpur's colonial past e.g. Clarke, Parry, Davidson and Campbell.

Le Meridien HUB also extends its connections and creative discovery outside the hotel walls with a unique partnership known as the Unlock Art™ programme. Guests at Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur will have access to a wide range of creative pieces at its local Unlock Art™ art partner TAKSU Gallery. Representing a refined selection of fine art, TAKSU is at the helm of the contemporary art industry in Kuala Lumpur.

And if you think my evening during the unveiling is going to be an essay...well, here's the photos to give you an idea of the new Le Meridien. Started with a walk through and followed by a fun Friday night for all who attended the ceremony.
