Best Hotels in Petaling Jaya

Petaling Jaya Hotels

From humble satellite township to thriving suburb, the city of Petaling Jaya is a welcome escape from busy Kuala Lumpur. A blend of Malay, Chinese, and Indian culture, buzzing markets, and cheap eateries cluster the streets. For the seasoned shopaholic, the Selangor district is an all you can shop buffet of brands and labels, housed within its grand malls. Theme park thrills and palatial resorts provide the entertainment and leisure, whilst sipping a cup of kopi kosong alongside a local makes for a simple pastime.

Things to see

Five parks in one, Sunway Lagoon is arguably the best theme park in Asia. Here you’ll find parks catering to every type of thrill, from white knuckle rides and whimsical family fun, to adrenaline fueled sports and hair-raising horrors. With a wildlife park and a water park to boot, it’s fun on tap for all. The Egyptian-themed Sunway Pyramid Mall is a shopper’s paradise. With its grand pyramid façade and giant lion statue standing guard, the bustling shopping center boasts over 800 stores and services. If you’ve shopped but haven’t quite dropped, the Curve Shopping Mall offers plenty more to help finish you off. Home to over 250 shops, you can bag yourself brand or a bargain. After an action packed day, retreat to the green and tranquil grounds of Kelana Jaya Lake Park. Here anglers fish on the restful lake, whilst others stroll about enjoying the fresh air and birdsong.

Where to stay

A hotel in Petaling Jaya puts you just a short trip from the central Kuala Lumpur buzz, along with a trove of malls and large scale attractions. Whilst many hotels provide shuttles to whisk you between haunts, hiring a car let’s you dictate the pace. Petaling Jaya itself is awash with Malay delights. From illuminated night markets, to fragrant hawkers and mamak stalls, street vendor hotspots come rich in local flavor. Nearby Sunway is studded with accommodation options and is home to the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall. At its very center you’ll find all the hijinks of Sunway Lagoon Theme Park.

How to get to Petaling Jaya

Situated just over 16 km by car from the center of Petaling Jaya, Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport is the city’s nearest gateway. Whilst it serves numerous Malaysian destinations, those coming from further away will most likely be landing at the better connected Kuala Lumpur Airport. Approximately 53 kilometers from the city, getting in once you’ve landed is best done by taxi or car rental. It’s also possible to get into Petaling Jaya from central Kuala Lumpur via the light transit rail service. The Kelana Jaya line makes multiple stops throughout the city, including Taman Jaya Station and Asia Jaya Station.
