Set just 10 minutes from the center of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in sprawling parklands surrounded by ancient jungles, Carcosa Seri Negara Hotel was built expressly for Sir Frank Swettenham, then the British advisor to the Sultan of Perak.

Two separate mansions make up this finely appointed hotel. The interiors are impeccably decorated with antique Victorian furniture and accented with local hand loomed rugs and batik artwork. The resulting atmosphere is British, with hints of the rich cultures that make up Malaysia. Staying at Carcosa is a chance to step back to the time of British Colonialism, when even in uncharted and exotic lands none of the comforts of home were ever left behind.

Guests at Carcosa are greeted by luxury at every turn, from the marble bath fixtures with gold-plated accessories, to the rich furnishings, to the impressive views of rolling parkland and the lights of Kuala Lumpur.

The service is of the highest level available, and includes a personal butler. Enjoy fine dining at one of three restaurants; whether you prefer exquisite French food, classic Malaysian cuisine, or High Tea, you will find something to suit your tastes. Lounge by the pool for some relaxation, or take some sport on the tennis court or at two world-class golf courses.
