Latino Fiesta at TEMPTations and Refreshed Club Marriott at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

I’ve always thought that Renaissance is a gorgeous hotel, it has that old world charm, befitting to its name, and you do feel a sense of luxury stepping into the hotel. Though only 2 weeks ago, I found out that it actually belongs to the Marriott group. Thanks to the kind folks at Renaissance, we were invited to the launch of the Refreshed Club Marriott.

Club Marriott is a membership programme which includes a world of exclusive benefits and indulgences at over 100 participating hotels across the Asia Pacific. For example, members can enjoy discounts at F&B outlets (30% at Renaissance KL, 20% at participating hotels), discounted room rate/upgrades, and even cash rebate for Spa. (For member enquiries please call Club Marriott KL office 0327138433)

The launch kicked off with a cocktail session at TEMPTations, and the event was officiated by the newly appointed Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Club Marriott brand ambassador Ms June Yap (Mrs Borneo World 2015/2016, Top 12 finalist Mrs World 2016). Several local personalities joined the celebration too.

We later adjourned to TEMPTations as it was also the launch of their Latin Fiesta. Seeing the Pinatas hanging all through the ceilings and the staff dressed in traditional costumes really set the mood for the evening. The Chilean wine was flowing too, which is always a bonus.

Spanish Guatemalan Chef Pablo Crespo, sous chef at Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel is obviously the brain behind the Latino Fiesta. Born in Guatemala, Chef Pablo actually studied Law, but his passion for led him down the culinary path instead. He has worked in many 5 stars hotels and fine dining restaurants, and even a 5 star cruise liner where he honed his skills in International cuisine, before deciding to move to Malaysia in 2015 to join Renaissance Kuala Lumpur.

Let’s take a look at some of the dishes available that evening:

I seem to have lost the photo of the Churros station. Yes, the churros are freshly fried here. You can choose to have the sugar coated ones, or the naked ones, to dip in chocolate and caramel sauce. Yummmmm. Love them because they are perfectly crunchy and fluffy at the same time.

You can enjoy the buffet with Latino wines and cocktails every evening too, though on Friday Saturday and Sunday there will also be a liveband. The dinner buffet is priced at RM145nett per person and half price for children between 6 to 12 years old, and it’s available until the 28th of August.
