Planning a trip to Kuala Lumpur? Malaysia’s capital is known for its modern skyline and iconic landmarks like the Petronas Towers. And what better way to enjoy the view than from your hotel’s infinity pool. Whether you’re enjoying a romantic getaway or a family adventure, we’ll help you find the best rooms. But before you look at the hotels, here are a few things to consider regarding infinity pools.

Things to Consider

  • Petronas Tower Pool Views – The best Petronas Tower pool view is from the infinity pool at Ascott Star KLCC. Both Tamu Hotel & Suites and ibis Kuala Lumpur offered excellent views of the Tower as well.
  • Biggest Infinity Pools – All the pools are beautiful on our list, but some are much bigger than others. The infinity pools at Hotel Stripes and Wyndham Suites are two of the biggest, with plenty of room to cool off and relax.
  • Rooftop PoolsThe Swimming Club at Kuala Lumpur Journal Hotel is one of the city’s best rooftop bars. You can sun and swim while enjoying cocktails and snacks til late at night. St. Regis’ rooftop pool offers poolside service and happy hour from Crystal Restaurant.
  • Kid’s Pool Area – Set next to the infinity pool, ibis Kuala Lumpur’s kid’s pool is our favorite, with water features your kids will love. Aloft Kuala Lumpur’s Sentral’s Splash Pool also offers a children’s pool in addition to the infinity pool. 

Best Suites for Couples

  • EQ Kuala Lumpur – With luxurious rooms and suites, it’s no surprise that EQ Kuala Lumpur is a popular couples retreat. We recommend the Studio Suite for its Malaysian motif, natural hardwood floors, and romantic city views. And nothing says romance more than a marble bath with a soaking tub.
  • The St. Regis Kuala Lumpur – While the Presidential and Royal Suites are the most luxurious, The St. Regis Suite is perfect for couples. You’ll love the floor-to-ceiling views, especially from the ensuite soaking tub. And with a private massage room, you’ll enjoy the most intimate couple’s massage. 

Best Suites for Families

  • Wyndham Suites KLCC – This hotel’s Three-Bedroom Duplex Suites are the perfect choice for a family of five. Each suite is comfortable and spacious with kitchens, and a variety of appliances. Its location near attractions and shopping makes it ideal for exploring Kuala Lumpur.
