W Kuala Lumpur celebrates its first anniversary this August 2019 with a party that’s built for all. Living up to its name, the #W1LDONE, W KL is topping off the weekend of August 30th to September 1st, 2019 with everything that represents the true-blue DNA of W — gastronomic, fun, urban and trendy.

With ‘Wild One’ as the moniker, prepare for an action-packed weekend as you celebrate the long Merdeka weekend indulging in tantalising culinary adventures, immersing in high-energy entertainment, and then retire to slumber in rooms fit for royalty; all these while experiencing the W’s hospitality.

Since its inception on August 23rd 2018, W KL has been putting up exciting events and happenings that centre on having a good time. We invited violinist Josh Kua, fitness influencer Nana Al Haleq, and Rubini Sambanthan from Asia’s Next Top Model Cycle 6 to experience a prelude to the #W1LDONE party — and to sum it up, we all had a great time.

With its first anniversary on the way, W KL is amplifying the celebration with a great lineup that you’d want to be part of.
