Weather in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is the climate, with consistently warm daytime temperatures of 30-34°C (86-93°F) all year round. Mornings are typically dry, but afternoons are frequently punctuated by brief thunderstorms and torrential rain, usually passing quickly to leave the evenings fresh and rain-free after the humidity of the day. The wettest months are February to May and September to December – at this time, the streets can flood suddenly, though the waters recede within hours.

The hotel's parlours, smoking lounge and orchid-filled conservatory add further allure.
