After 23 hours of traveling I will arrive in KL 30 december and want to stay on a quiet but nice place for new year's evening. I want to stay for some days but not in KL. Do anyone have some suggestions?

So your question is a bit vague, but I know where I would go if I landed in KL on December 30th and didn't want to tackle the Muddy Confluence yet -- I'd go to Putrajaya, Malaysia's bizarre Pyongyang-meets-Dubai-meets-Las Vegas capital-to-be, halfway down the train line from KLIA to KL.

More specifically, I would stay at the Shangri-La Putrajaya, which is quiet and rather more than nice, all at a very reasonable price -- used to be around US$70/night back in the day, will be more now especially near NY but still won't break the bank. Infinity edge pool, views over the surreal skyline of the city, decent restaurants that are only moderately overpriced, lots of pretty ladies in tight skirts and thigh-high slits gliding around, all you'd expect from an Asian 5-star hotel.
It's been a few years since I last visited and there are probably newer, shinier hotels there by now, but I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed. The only major catch with "PJ" is that getting around without a car is semi-impossible, but taxis are available, and this is the kind of hotel where just being there is the whole point.
