The Orchid Conservatory

While reading up on things to do in Kuala Lumpur I came across this blog post where Soraya recommended high tea at The Orchid Conservatory. Hello Raya was the only blog where I found this suggestion and I am so grateful I read until the end of her post because it was a total treat for Chris and me. 

I hadn't done a high tea since my very first one on my last travel adventure, with Ash and Helen. Ever since that day I've been a huge fan of treating myself to a special afternoon tea. My fix was long overdue, and Chris had never experienced one before. I think he loved it even more than me.

We went straight from the airport on the express train to Sentral Station, as we were approaching the city an afternoon thunderstorm began. It couldn't have been more perfect that our afternoon was going to be indoors as we had a couple hours to kill before we could meet up with our friend Sebastian and load off our bags. At least now we could be blissfully indoors with not the slightest feeling of needing to rush.

Arriving at Sentral Station, we chanced our luck to hop into the free hotel shuttle. From then on, we soaked in the 5-star experience, we were treated like gold. It felt so calming to sit among the orchids and hear the pitter patter of rain on the conservatory roof. Chris and I checked out of reality for a bit, discussing all our travel dreams for the year ahead. I opted for a classic English breakfast tea and Chris had Darjeeling.

The Majestic is a colonial beauty in the heart of KL, I loved her charm and the white suits worn by the welcome staff. The mirror table at the foyer of the hotel was so beautifully styled with fresh flowers that I couldn’t resist including it in this post.

More about our KL trip coming soon...
