At the 'Brim' of Rimbun

October 13, 2021

A tour around 'Embassy Row'

Ampang is a historic town and a district of Kuala Lumpur (KL) in the Titiwangsa constituency that encompasses Jalan Ampang and Ampang Hilir. Part of Ampang used to be a tin mining town, but the entire area has since evolved to become a vibrant, bustling township that many call home.

Ampang Hilir

Ampang Hilir is a prime city location, and given the opportunity, we will want to own a piece of property in this pretty distinguished address. Why's that? First and foremost, a potent differentiating factor of the area is its "green living" concept – novel given its proximity to the city's heart. There is a park surrounding a lake here stretching about 1.5km long around a former mining pool. Surrounded by relatively new terrain with planted trees and carpeted with grass, it offers a pleasant place to unwind. In addition, it features some essential exercise equipment, a jogging track to share with cyclists and a kids' play area, making this a popular green lung for locals, foreigners and expats alike.

Moreover, our Ampang Hilir condominium nestles in comfortably amidst the exclusive Embassy Row. You know the area is safe when it's teeming with foreign embassies and high commissions. To top it all off, upscale tree-lined properties of all types, from bungalows and semi-dees to condominiums and serviced suites, with well-manicured lawns, complete its privileged position. Without a doubt, the neighbourhood here is highly prestigious as it, by and large, caters to expats and the high-end markets.



Hidden in the elite neighbourhood of Ampang Hilir is Rimbun, offering luxury, above par excellence and uncompromised privacy, writing a new chapter of contemporary green luxury living in KL, Malaysia. Being within the exclusive Embassy Row locale parameters, this serene enclave decked out with multi-level security architecture is wrapped in lush tropical greenery – a pleasant contrast from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan city.

Amenities and Facilities

Rimbun's location is unmatched. It has unparalleled access, be it to the city's finest shopping, dining and entertainment spots or leading international five-star hotels in and around KLCC, all the way to Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang. Even closer are the MiCasa All-Suite Hotel, the Royal Selangor Golf Club, and Raintree Club. Moreover, necessary facilities like medical centres are all within a 10- to 15-minute reach, for instance, the Gleneagles Hospital KL, KPJ Ampang Puteri Specialist and HSC Medical Centres, and the KL International Dental Centre. Additionally, private and international educational facilities like the British curriculum-based Sayfol and Fairview International schools and the non-profit, parent-governed school accredited in the United States, the International School of Kuala Lumpur (ISKL), minutes away.

Food Paradise and Shopping Hotspots

The ever-popular Hock Choon Supermarket and Great Eastern Mall are here to serve all your grocery needs. In addition, multiple restaurants and cafes are scattered, catering to those with a taste for diverse cuisines. 

Some highlights include:

  1. Rama V, a Thai restaurant set amongst a magnificent pool of lotus blossoms, quietly tucked away from the busy KL life. 
  2. Victoria Station, the fine steakhouse set precisely in a train-like setting.
  3. Dondang Sayang Coffee House, known for its many local and continental specialities, has its signature Hainanese Chicken Rice to crave for.
  4. Sahara Tent, making history in KL's culinary landscape by becoming the first fine diner to offer authentic Arabian cuisine. 
  5. The Tex-Mex restaurant Las Carretas that serves excellent Mexican food.
  6. La Risata, well-known for doing a good variety of authentic Italian dishes in a romantic setting.
  7. & Alexis Ampang, offering some of the most pleasurable dinings and live music performances to be found in KL, showcasing internationally renowned musicians and local legends.

Avenue K, KLCC, Intermark and Pavillion are also conveniently located along Jalan Tun Razak and Jalan Ampang, a short drive away, making your shopping trips highly accessible.

Accessibility and Transportation

This key location within the city limits itself is served mainly by Jalan Ampang. However, it is also accessible via Jalan U Thant, Jalan Kia Peng and Jalan Tun Razak. Traffic may be a concern during peak hours, usually backed up on Jalan Ampang Hilir, Jalan Ampang and Jalan Tun Razak. Nonetheless, its convenient location allows for easy access due to the availability of several connecting highways, namely the AKLEH (Ampang-KL Elevated Highway), SMART (Stormwater Management and Road Tunnel (SMART) Expressway and Duta-Ulu Klang Expressway (DUKE).

Bukit Bintang and Pavilion are 10 minutes away, while it only takes up to 20 minutes to get to Bangsar, Bukit Damansara and Mont'Kiara. In terms of public transportation, the Dato Keramat and Ampang Park LRT stations are not too far away, and for further convenience, the KLCC LRT station stops within the shopping mall itself.

The Most Prestigious Address

Rimbun is genuinely a residence with an enviable address. Exclusivity is a given the moment individuals wish to buy or purchase an address in the city, especially at Ampang Hilir. Everything is within easy reach and, more importantly, without compromising the lifestyle of a socialite, in a location a class above the rest. There is nothing quite like Rimbun with its excellent city access, exclusivity, and a neighbourhood of ready conveniences. As a permanent home, this residential unit will be a dream come true, a world for better lives and families to thrive together.
