Planning the best staycation in KL is easy thanks to the abundance of Instagram-worthy hotels, private pool villas, and glamping spots near the city centre. While we're pushing aside our travel plans following the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Malaysia, we can't help but dream about our next staycation in Kuala Lumpur.
If you want to treat your family to a well-deserved staycation in KL once it's safe to do so, there's an Instagram-worthy and affordable serviced suite in KL that may be up your alley!
Just a 10-minute drive from KLCC, you'll find Afflexia Serviced Suites KLCC, a modern serviced apartment that reimagines a stylish staycation in the city. Since there's more to Afflexia than just its artistic exterior, stepping into the building will give you a glimpse of its Instagrammable factor.
Walk into the lobby, and you'll discover plenty of artistic details that'll make you stop and stare, from the bright pink chandelier to the plush sofas that await its guest. With that being said, we won't be surprised if this is where you'll take your first photo for the 'gram.
If you explore Afflexia further, you'll stumble upon the Swedish Garden that comes complete with well-illuminated steps, hanging disc lights and surroundings that are equal parts futuristic and mystical. Walk up the steps and you'll find a small garden complete with wooden picnic tables to hang out at.
The thing about Afflexia is that most floors and lift lobbies have its own unique design. The one above is the lobby at Tower 1 that is designed to mimic the stalactites found in the caves in Malaysia. With the added illumination, it also looks like the ice caves in the Arctic!
Since it's always sunny in Malaysia, you'll probably spend a lot of time at the Lazy River Spa that's shaped with a snaking river design and surrounded by round metallic 'bubbles'!
Another structure that is worth mentioning is the Cloud Podium where meetings and events take place. Besides the fluffy cloud-like sofas that are scattered across the room, the ceiling fixtures will definitely grab your attention. If you can't access it, you can check out the Floating Fantasy Garden, which looks almost Avatar-like at night.
Planning a staycation in KL? Afflexia has 80 suites and each is fully furnished with a private living space, a kitchenette (complete with a refrigerator, stove and microwave) and bedrooms. It also has high-speed Wi-Fi as well as washing machine and dryer.
The nearest prayer space to Afflexia is Surau Al-Mukmin and Surau RISDA, which is less than a 5-minute drive. Additionally, the serviced suites also provide praying facilities for Muslims that can be arranged at the front desk or pre-arrange via email.
