The Glamorous Mai Tai @ Aloft Kl Sentral

swimming pool @ Mai TaiOne of the latest addition in the very exclusive circle of  bars-with-a-view-and-a-swimming-pool in KL is the Mai Tai @ Aloft Hotel in Kl Sentral. Aloft Hotels are the new urban / boutique hotels of the Starwood Hotel group –W, Sheraton, Meridien, St regis – and as such it is a promess of chic, glamour and fashion.

So what about the bar ? At the 30th floor, the atmosphere is definitely hype, with an exotic polynesian touch conveyed by the Tiki totems surrounding the swimming pool. The pool area offers really cosy places to sip your cocktail on the exquisite purple-ish deckchairs, or standing at the tables admiring the Petronas from a different perspective. Inside, the blue lights and the DJ make you feel in a good disco, which is pleasant – according to your mood you can be dancing or relaxing. It is also a place that can be rented for birthdays and such big events – this is where the great TimeOut KL hosted its 5th birthday party, and I can assure you it was a really unforgettable one.

I didn’t try the signature cocktail, Mai tai, being a wine addict myself – but those that tried confirmed its reputation
