Intimations of industry
The Golden Triangle
The Ruma Hotel & Residences captures the spirit of Malaysia past and present, bringing a hint of the country's mining heritage to the heart of the modern city. Right at the centre of the Golden Triangle, the hotel is just a stone’s throw from the commercial district and the city’s postmodern icon, the Petronas Towers. Step inside, however, and the design takes you back to the country’s industrious 19th century, nodding to Malaysia’s mining boom with gold, copper, blackened steel and lantern-esque lamps. In the rooms, rattan furniture and pale-wood panelling add a softer domestic touch – the word rumah is Malay for house, after all – but the clean-lined design is very much of the modern age. Downstairs, the diversions include mod-Malay restaurant Atas and a cantilevered infinity pool that juts from the sixth floor. There's a sleek Ur spa on the sixth floor and and an outpost of legendary London barbershop Truefitt & Hill to boot.
