The best countdown parties will always be your own countdown parties. After all, it’s not cool to grind with hundreds of other sweaty bodies in an overcrowded nightclub — not to mention risk injuring yourself with stiletto heel jabs and cigarette burns. Throwing a party in your own home doesn’t come with insurance too, which is why the next best place to host your own NYE countdown party is at one of these serviced apartments in KL.
Perfect for intimate soirées, these serviced apartments in KL offer you a nice personal space to host your friends for dinner, desserts, drinks, and a great view of the fireworks come midnight. You can take your pick of two to three-bedroom serviced apartments to ensure that after a long night of counting down and cheering to a brand new year, none of you would have to brave the rest of KL heading home in bad traffic.
These serviced apartments too, have a special kitchen area where you can whip up dishes (if you’re not ordering takeout, that is), and they come with plates, glassware and appropriate cutleries. Lounge in the living area when you’re not eating, and just have a good time.
The best part? You don’t have to worry about cleaning up after.
