We arrived at the hotel to be greeted with flowers for our honeymoon and were offered a reduced rate discount to a horizon club room. We took the discount and were not disappointed. We had a large bed, great tv, luxurious bathroom and a 20th floor view of the patronas towers.
Because we were in the horizon club we had free internet access, complimentary breakfast, soft drinks throughout the day, afternoon tea and cocktail hour. We were also able to borrow dvds (which we did when the rain was awful one evening). The staff couldn't have been friendlier - they knew our names after the first day and arranged all of our trips for us, phoning various companies to get us the best deal. The beds were also turned down every evening and slippers were next to the bed and also a book mark and a bottle of water.
We've never done 5* before the honeymoon and this was well worth it. We felt really special although if we'd thought about upgrading earlier we would probably have packed a few more smart/casual items to wear in the horizon lounge.
"The pub" was nice (located on first floor). Expensive for Malaysia, especially drinks, (but no more expensive than UK) but good English pub food that was really handy to go to after a day of travelling and live covers band that were really good.
The hotel location was amazing - a bit difficult to cross the main road (the pedestrian lights never seemed to go green so had to make a run for it) but a 5-10 minute walk to petronas towers, lots of parks nearby and plenty of bars and restaurants. Suria KLCC 9shopping centre next to petronas towers) had a good food court that had all the typical fast food places from UK but also noodle bars etc - really cheap and a good way to try some local food.
Had a trip to the elephant sanctuary - was amazing, fed elephants, rode on an elephant and sat on an elephant that dunked us in the river. A fabulous day (a bit of queing and a long drive) but an experience that we'll never forget.
