Grand Millennium KL relaunched its newly refurbished Club Lounge and Rooms recently with a sneak preview for media and bloggers.
The 3-storey cosy haven boasts contemporary elegance clad in steely greys, muted blues and glowing pendant lights.
With a choice of indoor and outdoor seating, the plush confines offer guests complimentary High Speed WiFi access and choice bites with a wide array of cocktails for privileged Club Room guests.
Accommodating 60 persons at one time, the Club Lounge is spacious enough to ensure privacy for guests with its integrated office and meeting spaces as well as relaxing lounge seating.
The “Al Fresco" alternative at the patio is surrounded by a rock pool filled with koi and decked with lush plants and shrubs, a serene oasis amidst towering office blocks with the Petronas Twin Towers visible in the distance.
A wide range of daily complimentary food and beverage items is proffered from 5.30pm to 8.30pm daily.
General Manager Peter Gibbons the new Club Lounge befits the upcoming Club Rooms that will also flaunt freshly updated features in keeping with the dynamism of modern corporate and leisure travellers.
Guests will be well-taken care of by a team of dedicated Club Ambassadors who are tasked to look after their every need.
Another privilege that Club Lounge guests will enjoy is the plethora of tempting morsels rustled up by Executive Chef Steven Seow come breakfast and cocktail time.
From this impressive towering display of cream puffs drenched with honey and studded with fresh berries to assorted bite-size appetisers such as chilled avocado with smoked chicken, tuna tartar with wasabi mayo potato, rye bread smoked salmon sandwiches, lemon citron tart and chocolate mousse with pear, guests will literally find it hard-pressed to decide on what to eat.
Don't let these little buns fool you...they're more substantial than you presume them to be; stuffed to the brim with mixed lettuce, pickled gherkin slices and rosettes of smoked salmon.
Expect a clever interplay of textures, flavours and colours at the display counters which are designed to serve hot and cold dishes in addition to savoury and sweet offerings.
The chef has no qualms drawing inspirations from around the world. His creation of croissant stuffed with Arabic grilled chicken is a delicious example of how West meets Middle East in a single bite.
Crisp shrimp toasties, lamb keema pizza, chicken teriyaki balls and a rich quiche are enough to warm the tummy and keep you going until dinner time.
Of course there is always the inevitable dessert selection - again in dainty servings to lessen the guilt. Fruit tartlets, chocolate mousse with pear and choc shavings in shot glasses, more luscious tartlets of strawberries peeking out from slivers of chocolate, tea scones and miniature tiramisu are just mere samplings that hit the sweet spot.
If you fancy a stay-cation now that the year-end school hols are in full swing, just call the Grand Millennium KL.
