E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur | Luxury Apartment Stay Experience

The E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur is a luxury serviced residence that offers exclusive stays and synonymous with the Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang. 
It is located at Jalan Tengah off Jalan Sultan Ismail, would be one of the ideal local to explore KL town also also good if you have business in KL. 

E&O Residences has got 200 units of chic and elegant fully furnished residential suites offering the best getaway you can ever experience with its luxurious setting. 

I've been to E&O Residences many years ago during my friend's birthday as he rented this place adn we all stayed over to celebrate his birthday. After many years, I'm here again now my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur in the mid of December and still, E&O Residences is one of the most luxurious hotels I've ever stayed. 

E&O Residences is not very difficult to locate if you are familiar with KL town area. Or you can simply use the GPS app "Waze" and it will guide you directly to E&O Residences, which is also located next to St.Mary Residences. It is also located within walking distance to Suria KLCC, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Starhill Gallery and many more.

Look at the amazing view of E&O Residences and St.Mary Residences, where KL Tower and KLCC, Petronas Twin Tower can also be sighted from the residences.

There is this concierge counter in front of the hotel that they welcome any queries and also ready to serve their guests. Any taxi orders or transfer arranged can be done from here.

As Christmas was near, the whole are was fully decorated with Christmas decorations, ornaments and Christmas trees too. 

I personally like this modern yet chic Christmas tree they have in here. 
It is simple yet elegant!

The lobby of E&O Residences is rather spacious with some sofa placed for guests to chill. 

The reception counter is also kinda chic and check-in speed was real quick.
The receptionists are kinda friendly and ready to answer all your queries too.

Moving into the surroundings of E&O Residences, I'm really glad to be surround by greens.
There were a lot of plants and trees surrounding the building, which is kinda rare in KL. 

I'm personally attract to the swings they have in here. It looks rather cozy and reading here would be the best thing to do for holiday!

The walkway that is surround by greens!

The swimming pool is shared by E&O Residences and St.Mary Residences and it is located in between both buildings.

Notice board by the pool.
Most important thing would be there is no lifeguard for the swimming pool. 
So be extra careful if you are bringing your kids with you.

The pool is rather nice to swim and not too deep. About the size of half quarter of football field.
It is about my shoulder length, great for adults but not too kids friendly, so use a float if you are bringing your kids. They have a smaller pool for kids located just next to the adult pool.

I spent some time and swam at the pool. Indeed it was really nice and the length was just nice for me to swim. I wouldn't mind to spend more time there.

Apart from the pool, they also have jacuzzi pool available for all guests.
You can choose to dip in this "private" jacuzzi pool so you can have some personal and private space.

Or you can also choose to dip in the open jacuzzi pool. The pump was very strong that it simply relax your muscles when you take a dip there.

If you are bringing you kids along. Do bring them over to this corner for some fun time.
They can run around at this spacious playground.

Kids can run around but it is best with adults' companion. The playground is kinda fun and the land was soft, don't have to worry about kids falling as it wouldn't be as bad as falling on tar roads.

Don't like outdoor? Then go for their playroom available at St.Mary Residences. It is accessible to all guests and really a fun place for all kids. Look at all the soft toys available in the room and kids can choose to watch TV for cartoon shows.

Being gym addict? Let's go for the fully equipped gym!
The gym is quite simple but got sufficient equipments and kinda completed.
It is kinda sufficient for simple workout after some holiday meals.

Checking into the room was a pleasant surprise.
I was welcomed with a spacious serviced suite apartment that comes with cozy environment.
Here's a photo of the spacious living room that equipped with some nice sofa, big LED TV and iPod docking station speakers. 

Apart from the living room corner. The whole living room is also connected to the kitchen which has come with a dining table for 4 as well. I'm happy to be staying in a 2 bedroom suite that comes with this luxurious and spacious space just for myself. The unit itself is more than one thousand square feet or 1,131 sq ft to be exact. It is big enough to throw a big party or to welcome a small family. Rather family friendly hotel I shall say.

A warm welcome by the E&O Residences with some fresh fruits on the dining table.

The kitchen equipment are rather completed. It comes electronic cooking equipment like oven, microwave oven, induction cooker and more. I would be glad if my house were to have all these you know? It is so convenient to cook here if you are planning for a long family holiday.

The room also comes with a huge fridge! You can store your food items or cooking ingredients if you plan to cook in your room. Don't forget that exhaust fan is also built-in in the room. You don't have to worry about the room getting oily or smelly at all!
I'm pretty sure you will need to do your laundry if you are travelling for a short period. Perhaps the washing machine and the drying machine will come in handy when  you need to do your laundry. Don't forget that iron is also provided in the room. All you gotta do is just buy your own detergent! 

Apart from the living room and bedrooms. The suite also comes with a spacious and comfortable office for you to do your work. Whether if you are having a phone call meeting, sending emails or working with your laptop. This room would be some personal and private space for you.

Apart from the toilets in the room. There is one extra guest toilet available in the suite. 

One if the room would be this standard room that comes with one wide LED TV in the room. The queen size bed is rather comfortable. If you are travelling with your family, I believe your kids would love to have this room all by themselves. 

And yes, the room comes with a private bathroom and toilet. You don't have to share it with your parents if you are staying with them.

The master bedroom is much more spacious than the standard room. It comes with a comfortable king size bed that would make you reluctant to leave your room for the rest of the day. Not forget to mention the air-conditioned room of the whole suite is simply perfect too! You don't have to worry about how hot outside is, the room can be ice cold as long as you want it to.

The bathroom of the master bedroom is one of the highlight. It is very spacious and comes with twin vanities. Perfect for travelling couple especially if you have a girlfriend or wife who would spend a lot of time making up themselves before going out.

Nor forget to mention about this long and huge bathtub too. I was simply happy to see E&O Residences do provide bathtub in their suites. That is something I would usually expect when I'm going for holiday.

At night, this is the view I was enjoying from my window. Staying in E&O Residences can gives you a great view to both KL Tower and KLCC Twin Tower depending on the location of the suites.
Tips: Do request for rooms at higher floors for better views.

What would be better than enjoying some fine wines with view like this?

After a long tiring day, it is time to dip myself into a pool of warm water.

Tips: Bring your own sea salt, shower milk or any other stuff if you would want to enjoy the bathtub to the max.

Amenities from E&O Residences

A great night spent at E&O Residences with extreme comfort and peaceful sleep.

On day 2, I headed to Delicious restaurant located right in front of St.Mary Residences for breakfast. Do book your stay with breakfast too if you would like to enjoy breakfast provided by Delicious, or you can also order from the a la carte menu.
Other than Delicious, there are also other restaurants located on the same row. Check them out if you were to stay there.

Delicious is rather spacious and it would be perfect to cater to all guests of E&O Residences

Some juices and cereal available at the drinks counter. It is continental breakfast that provided only to guests staying at E&O Residences.

Waffles, Cheese Baked Tomatoes, Mini Hash Browns, Baked Beans, Sauteed Mushrooms, and also Fried Koay Teow available on the spread.

It was really glad to find so many types of pastry available at the bread counter. There is a toaster if you prefer your bread toasted or you like it hot.

Sausages will be cooked on the spot upon order.

What would be more comforting than somebody there to prepare your eggs for you?
Be it Omelette, Sunny Side Up or Half Boiled Egg, just order from the chef!

Porridge and soup noodles are also available. 

No kidding, that's how much I ate for breakfast. It is buffet style after all. 

How can you call yourself Malaysia if you did not have Nasi Lemak as breakfast?
Eat like a Malaysia, try the Nasi Lemak available on the buffet spread at Delicious

After breakfast, I had a little swim at the pool.
Have to say that the pool was really amazing and awesome. The water was a bit cold as I swam quite early in the morning. But I love the size of the pool, just nice for a short dip. But too bad I didn't get to visit the gym due to time constraints.

Reading some of the magazines in the room and watching TV before check out.

E&O Residences is a sister property of the well known Eastern & Oriental Hotel in Penang. You are very kampong if you were to tell me that you have never heard of this hotel in Penang.

Chilling on swing and enjoy some reading will be great if I were to have longer holiday.

Here are some of the pros & cons about E&O Residences:
1. Ideal location (Walking distance to KLCC, Pavilion and many other attractions in KL Town)
2. Air-conditioning in the room is simply awesome.
3. The facilities provided are very useful and welcoming.
4. Family friendly hotel with affordable prices.
5. Suites are fully equipped with complete electronics.

1. Shared car park with St.Mary Residences.
