Kuala Lumpur Airport Layover πŸ›¬πŸ›£πŸ›« The Sama-Sama Hotel

Experiencing a layover at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) is made significantly more enjoyable with a stay at the luxurious Sama-Sama Hotel.

Conveniently located just a few minutes from the airport terminal, this award-winning transit hotel offers exceptional comfort and convenience for travelers.

With its seamless connection via a covered sky bridge and electric buggy service, the Sama-Sama Hotel provides world-class amenities including spacious rooms, fine dining options, a relaxing pool, and a rejuvenating spa.

Whether you’re on a short layover or an extended stay, the Sama-Sama Hotel at KLIA ensures a restful and hassle-free transit experience.



De-stressing your Long Haul Flight

Kuala Lumpur is one of the busiest central hubs in South-east Asia. If like us you often find yourself passing through Malaysia’s capital in transit to another destination, it may be worth considering a one-night layover. This not only breaks up what can otherwise be a tiring, uninterrupted long-haul trip, it also removes the stress of needing to make a connection on a tight schedule.

Now more than ever flights get delayed or postponed, so a layover gives you the extra security of not missing your ongoing connection.

If you’re looking for a straightforward layover without needing to travel into the city center – or even leaving the airport itself – then the Sama Sama Hotel perfectly fits the bill.

The Sama-Sama is a popular hotel located adjacent to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). It is often referred to as the Sama-Sama Hotel KLIA or Sama-Sama Hotel Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The hotel itself is a large and comfortable 5 star establishment, with a highly efficient staff who will make sure you get to your connecting flight in good time.

Finding the Sama-Sama Hotel on Arrival

Once you arrive in KLIA International Airport and have passed through immigration and baggage collection, it’s only a short walk to the hotel meeting place.

TheΒ Sama Sama Hotel offers a complimentary 24-hour buggy service directly to the hotel from the airport via the Sky-Bridge.

You can find their buggies at Level 2, KLIA main terminal building (next to the Food Court area) and enjoy a short scenic journey along the connecting sky-bridge between the Sama-Sama hotel and the airport.

If you have a late connecting flight the following day, arrangements can be made to keep your room for the extra hours you need, usually at an additional cost (this is highly recommended).
