The RuMa Hotel and Residences, the latest property by Urban Resort Concepts, has officially opened. Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle, the new-build luxury hotel will offer sweeping views of the city, including its iconic Petronas Towers.

Led by the Shanghai-based design firm MQ-studio, the hotel’s design combines contemporary design with Malaysian cultural influences, handcrafted furniture and artisanal pieces. The hotel’s decorations, many by local designers Dato Sri Bernard Chandran and Joe Chia, will include a Moorish-inspired, woven bronze screen and a locally handcrafted bronze water fountain enclosed in a terracotta birdcage.

The property hosts two specialty dining venues: ATAS Modern Malaysian Eatery and SEVEN Bar and Lounge. With Tyson Gee as executive chef, ATAS serves seasonal dishes from throughout the Malay Peninsula. SEVEN offers an assortment of refreshments and light meals, as well as a menu of craft cocktails.
