If you’ve been looking for a staycation in KL, the EQ Paradise in Pavilion allows you to go on shopping sprees in between enjoying the hotel’s facilities.
I checked in on a Friday after a much busy week at work, and really needed some ‘me’ time. I visited Nipah for a quick lunch, where I indulge in a beautiful lunch buffet spread, that included Christmas favourites. I highly recommend traditional Roast Turkey, Grilled Rib-Eye Steak and a Caesar salad on the side.
After lunch, I was chauffeured driven in a Mercedes-Benz from EQ to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur for some shopping. The chauffeur service is included in the EQ Paradise in Pavilion Package. Once I arrived, I enjoyed a glass of Champagne at Karl Lagerfeld one of many stores within Pavilion Kuala Lumpur participating in EQ Paradise in Pavilion. After two hours of exploring, I contacted the concierge at EQ, and within 10 minutes my driver was waiting to pick me up.
The package also includes two welcome cocktails or mocktails, which I enjoyed at EQ’s Sky 51. The lounge offers Instgrammables panoramic views of KL’S skyline. I watched the sunset, and begin to unwind for the weekend. You can choose to sit indoors or outdoors, and there is a special balcony to take the best photos of KL’s skyline.
For dinner, I headed to Etoile Bistro, an alfresco restaurant serving up steaks, pies, salads, pastas and many crowd-pleasers. I had an early night and a well-rested sleep on their comfortable bed. The automatic blackout blinds, most definitely guarantee a goodnights’ sleep.
Before checking out I headed over to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, chauffeur driven in the Mercedes-Benz. I visited Kampachi in Pavilion, EQ’s sister restaurant to enjoy a Japanese lunch. Kampachi is a much-loved iconic Japanese restaurant in KL, and I was lucky to have experienced the ‘Omakase’ menu prepared in front of me by Senior Sous Chef Jack Chan. He uses only the freshest ingredients of the season paired with traditional Japanese cooking techniques. For the more curious or daring, Chef Jack Chan took out a box, inside was a cleaned Fugu (Puffer fish). He asked if I wanted to try it. I declined as I am not a daring eater. Although, I know only skilled, licensed chefs are allowed to clean and remove the poisonous parts from the Fugu.
I’ll leave the Fugu for the adventurous souls. Kamapchi has many unique and rare ingredients available on their seasonal menu. So make sure to give their Omakase a try. After a wonderful lunch, my trusted chauffeur was waiting to fetch me from Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and return to EQ. I had a wonderful stay at EQ Kuala Lumpur, and the EQ Paradise in Pavilion is a great way to spend a romantic weekend with your loved one.
The EQ Paradise in Pavilion includes an RM100 dining voucher from Kampachi, while Al-Amar offers 10% off the total bill above RM 200 in a single receipt plus a free dessert and tea.
