WITH three crystal chandeliers adorning its ceiling, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s new ballroom is set to become the place to host events in luxury and splendour.

Spanning 1,509sq m, the state-of-the-art, pillarless ballroom was designed by Hong Kong-based LRF Designers Limited, with the facelift completed after four months of renovation.

The works undertaken during this period also included the upgrading of 13 function rooms and the hotel’s main restaurant – Lemon Garden.

A total of 52 guests were invited to the ballroom’s relaunch ceremony and treated to a five-course dinner under one of the majestic chandeliers while being serenaded by performers.

Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur area general manager Manfred Weber thanked the guests for attending the ceremony in his brief welcome speech.

“I will not bore the guests by talking about the ballroom.

“This event is for guests to get together and enjoy great food and each other’s company,” he said.

Guests were also given a chance to assemble their own desserts with the ingredients prepared by the hotel’s chefs at the end of the event.

The grand ballroom features a high ceiling, an elevated stage, a flexible partitioning system, elegant decor and cutting-edge facilities.

The entrance of the grand ballroom is made of marble and white timber doors while plush blue and beige hand-tufted carpets covered the floor.

The ballroom can seat up to 1,800 guests in a reception or theatre setting, 1,440 guests in a banquet setting and 660 guests in a classroom setting.
