To kick off the wiki on the new main lounge thread I added a brief overview of the MH lounges at KLIA.
I invite others to add relevant info on location, access requirements and opening hours.

All the Malaysia Airlines lounges at KL International Airport (KLIA) have now been reopened after renovations.

Malaysia Airlines has 3 lounges at KLIA.

This is the largest lounge. It features a Business class section and a separate 'Platinum' area + dining room for Enrich Platinum, OWEs & MH F passengers. (There is also a small First Class Suite area on the Platinum side for MH F passengers.) Open 24hrs.
This lounge is airside and accessible for international departures only. This lounge may also be used by arriving passengers on MH flights either having flown MH First / Business or with Enrich Platinum / Gold status only can also use this lounge - no access for OWE / OWS.

Can confirm that it's now open. As a lowly BA Silver I only got to visit the C lounge, but it is visually stunning. Not as private as the new CX F lounges, but almost as cosy. I'll take a few pictures, try the laksa and see if I can sneak into the F part to take some photos and report back.

Because inevitably this will the first question asked: no champagne in the C section, but a prefectly nice sparklling wine available.

ok, apologies for slightly chaotic order and low quality pics, but i'm already gone from there and off to Saigon, so I took the pics mostly on the move and didn't have much time to mess around with post-processing ;P

one thing the Wi-FI in the lounge is rather slow. I also saw some pax getting plates of pasta delivered to their seats, but I didn't see any menus anywhere, so I'm not sure what's the deal with that.

all in all, looks like an excellent lounge, great job MH!

That's cause it's no longer coming soon--it's now delayed indefinitely

In all seriousness, looks like a big upgrade for the C side. I was not of the opinion that F needed too much, but from the few pictures, the new colours are nice. Will check it out on Monday, how convenient.

Any improvements/expansions in the F&B offering (especially on the F side if anyone has tried the a la carte dining)? Or is it pretty much the same apart from the updated furnishings?

I do hope (& expect) that the F lounge catering has improved - the Regional Lounge food has. The last time I tried the so-called a'lacarte food in the F Lounge it was so disgusting I left most of it

Unfortunately I don't have the answer to your question, but I do hope they kept the ribeye steak with the rotating sauces.

I'm have always been amused when they have asked for my BP to write down my name somewhere in the back office when I have ordered the steak done rare.. apparently they want to keep a record in case any "issues" arise from the rare meat.

Every time I have had the steak it has been terrible also.

First class section menu for lunch and finner. Menus change weekly.
The steak is gone. The menus will change every week apparently. Today's choices were sea bass or grilled chicken. And pasta. I'll attach the menu later. For some reason Chrome not cooperating in uploading my pics.

Hrm, I imagine the tagliatelle is what I saw people being handed in the C lounge yesterday and the Laksa/Won Ton noodle soup is also probably from the Noodle Station in the Clounge.

Great pics!
There never was champagne for C for the last few years. The sparkling wine is the same as pre-reno.
The bar looks the same but with more tables & seating.
The lounge itself looks brighter & cleaner. The noodle bar looks neater & more professional now vs the old one.
Def. an upgrade over the old lounge.
Well done MH! Will have to pop by one of these days
