Our Story

Mindful Hospitality for the Conscious Explorer

Else is our response to a new breed of explorers. People who journey to appreciate a foreign land and culture, but also relish stillness, reflection and self-discovery.

An Icon Reborn

Housed within the iconic conserved Lee Rubber Building in downtown Kuala Lumpur, Else Kuala Lumpur is poised to be a new beacon for the burgeoning neighbourhood, located in the crosshairs of the city’s creative and cultural landscape.

Guided by a humanistic approach to hospitality, we welcome our guests to ease into their surroundings and be present. Anticipative and attentive, but also individualised and intimate, Else seeks to facilitate deeper and more meaningful connections through curated experiences and content.
