The “WAU” factor

Delightful design details await each guest who walks through New World Petaling Jaya Hotel’s majestic entrance. Malaysian influence is present throughout the thoughtful interior design, a six-metre high “wau” (traditional Malaysian kite) sets an imposing structure at the lobby to the colossal three-metre “gasing” (traditional Malaysian spinning top) sculptures and well-curated local artworks greet guests upon arrival.

The 300-square-metre rooftop infinity-edge pool on 30th floor offers refreshing swims and sunbathing, while the whirlpool provides a relaxing and bubbly massage, all backdropped with a city panorama. A state-of-the-art fitness centre equipped with the latest treadmills, elliptical machines, stair climbers and free weights offer with sweeping views of the city is located on 29th floor.

The hotel’s event facilities include a 1,700-square-metre pillarless grand ballroom accommodating up to 1,000 guests.
