TORONTO, Dec. 14, 2016 /CNW/ -- Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world's leading luxury hospitality company, and Venus Assets Sdn Bhd ("Venus"), an internationally renowned property developer, today announced plans for Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur, set to open in early 2018. Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle neighbourhood, Kuala Lumpur's thriving business and financial district, the Hotel is part of a 65-storey mixed-use tower that will include 242 Four Seasons Private Residences, 27 serviced apartments, a 209-key Four Seasons hotel and a five-floor, 300,000 square foot (27,900 square metre) luxury retail podium, collectively known as Four Seasons Place Kuala Lumpur.
The latest addition to the city's dramatic skyline and a vibrant hub for both business and leisure travellers, Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur will be conveniently located in close proximity to the city's major attractions, including the Petronas Twin Towers and the Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC).

The Hotel will also overlook the KLCC Park and be directly connected to the esplanade, allowing guests to take full advantage of the Park's 50 acres (20 hectares) of green space, including lush gardens, fountains, waterfalls, a wading pool, and jogging track.
"Four Seasons Place is a multi-billion ringgit project with an iconic and majestic tower that elegantly combines a legendary name with a landmark address.
