This place would not be called the “Malaysia Beverly Hills” for nothing (although some may say that it’s nothing more than a developer’s marketing spin). Kiara Hills is beautiful, it is prestigious, it is grand; and if there was a red carpet walk for houses, the houses here would be frontrunners as the ‘best dressed’. In fact, it is safe to say that this is a superstar of a gated community that could put its competitors to shame.
By look and by virtue, the homes at this gated community is only one of the many high end homes that belong to the great Mont Kiara enclave. And Kiara Hills is doing a great job representing the whole development by Sunway.
The price is a good place to start telling the story of what to expect from Kiara Hills. 🙂
You can hardly find a home here that is sold below RM 3 million, and even that number is rare. See, the homes here are sold for at least RM 850 PSF (RM1,000 PSF is not uncommon), and since the homes here are huge, expect to pay a mammoth of a fee.
Kiara Hills is technically located in Desa Sri Hartamas (and not Mont Kiara). For pricing purposes, one might want to compare against the likes of Amarin Kiara, Villa Aseana and The Residences @ Mont Kiara.

Kiara Hills – What You Need To Know
There are two types of homes to choose from at Kiara Hills: the luxurious bungalows and the less expensive (but still expensive) fancy link houses they (only aptly call) courtyard villas. And the only reason these villas are less expensive than the bungalows is the fact that they take less lot space than the bungalows that come with wide lawns, yards, and other outdoor amenities. Each of these houses is sized between 4,600 sf and 7,900 sf.
Apart from the posh little tropical paradise that Kiara Hills tries to emulate, and the prestige of the Mont Kiara address, the topmost charming attribute about living here is the view. On one side, it overlooks the KL skyline, and on the other, it is surrounded by lush, verdant hills. Either way, the view is nothing short of picturesque.
And of course, anything that is as outstanding as the homes in Kiara Hills deserve only nothing but the best, highest form of security. And theirs supersede practically everything else that their closest contending real estate development neighbors could put up. The homes of Kiara Hills are protected not only by their perimeter fencing and 24/7 roving guards; they also have motion detector systems to go with their vibration fence detection on top of their fence surveillance system. Of course, that naturally goes with their CCTV surveillance.
What We Think
Kiara Hills seem to breach the RM1,000 PSF (if it’s not so already – this review is published in end 2013), and with minimum size at 4,600 square feet expect to pay more than RM4 million at least for a unit here. For those who want to live in bungalows in Desa Sri Hartamas or Mont Kiara area, Kiara Hills seem to be a good choice – given that it probably has got one of the best locations in Desa Sri Hartamas, nay Mont Kiara.
Additionally, it’s also close to the international schools, and as such, it could be positioned for well-endowed (haha) expats with school going children; these could be those who are not too keen to live in the typical off-the-mill Mont Kiara condominiums. As always, whether this investment would make sense would really depend on how much you pay for it.
