REDEVELOPED HOTEL STANDS TALL IN KL
The Star Metro – Amid the rapid development that is reshaping the Kuala Lumpur skyline is the brand-new EQ. Those in their 40s and older who grew up in the city will surely remember the site of the former Hotel Equatorial, a well-known landmark in the heart of the Golden Triangle with popular spots such as Blue Moon and Kampachi.
LUXURY CITY ESCAPES
Going Places by Malaysia Airlines – After closing its doors seven years ago, the former Equatorial Hotel Kuala Lumpur is reborn as EQ, a towering 52-storey gem of luxury in the heart of the city. The new hotel sports a modern and sophisticated look that is reflected in each of its 440 guest rooms and suites, and has numerous venue options for events, conferences and conference meetings alike.

Robb Report Malaysia – A certain calmness settles over the long, elegant dining counter of fine-grained wood as Chef Yusuke Ishigami begins preparations for the first of our seven-course kappou menu (from RM500 per person) at Kampachi EQ. Knives are laid out and sharpened, a pot of fish head stock bubbles on a hob, and a log of bamboo charcoal salt waits to be grated as we prepare for action to commence.
