Adding themselves to the list of Shariah-compliant hotels in Malaysia, Mövenpick's brand new location in Kuala Lumpur just launched in July 2018. The Mövenpick Hotel & Convention Centre KLIA is set in a prime location, just 10 minutes away from the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, KLIA2, the F1 Sepang International Circuit, and the Mitsui Outlet Park.

The city center can be reached in about 30-40 minutes, so visitors have the best of both worlds. They get the calm of being away from the crowded parts of the city, but can also reach downtown KL without any hassle, making it an ideal choice for business travelers who are looking for Halal hotels in Malaysia near the airport, but also for families who want a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

While keeping in mind all the unique requirements of a Muslim community, the hotel's management says that everything is designed to fit the overall principle of the 3 Cs – Comfort, Convenience, and Confidence.

The architecture for the newest Movenpick Hotel in KL has been designed with the concept of showcasing the rich cultural heritage of the country, as well as showing off its Muslim-friendly Shariah-compliant concept – a seamless and modern blend of traditional Malaysian and Islamic architectures.

The design team was headed by Amir Hamzah, a senior associate at HIJAS Architects + Planners, a company that has left their mark on several iconic buildings in Malaysia such as the Telekom Malaysia Headquarters, Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC), Putrajaya Masterplan, and Shell Tower in Kuala Lumpur. Amir Hamzah himself has been involved in the design concept for the extension projects of Masjid-Al-Haram, in Makkah, SA.

The hotel is set amidst beautifully landscaped gardens that stretch 7.2 hectares full of lush greenery, fountains, and streams. Mövenpick KL's design gives off an air of modernity and luxury the moment you walk in through the hotel doors into an expansive atrium with its ceiling that is 9-storeys high and glass elevators. The high open space makes it feel bright and breezy – tropical if you must.

The outside is decorated with ornate patterns and Islamic geometric art. It also features one of the earliest forms of Islamic calligraphy that was initially used to record the Holy Quran called Kufic script.

These designs extend to the interior of the hotel as well, which is also installed with several features that take inspiration from some of the most iconic buildings in the history of Islamic architecture. Like the columns of Alhambra in Spain, or the “lancet” archways of Turkey and Iran.

The mammoth hotel has 333 rooms, which include 2-bedroom suites and great views. The hotel provides free shuttle services, a 24-hour front desk, a staff that speaks a variety of different languages, and free Wi-Fi – but that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the list of amenities in store for their guests.

Other than business travelers, the convention center is also set to serve as a departure hall for Hajj pilgrims, as well as hosting international exhibitions and conferences (MICE – Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing, Exhibitions).
