Mont Kiara Aman stands luxuriously as a development by Sunrise. The developer has completed about eleven residential projects, and all of them give a satisfying stay based on reviews from residents. This high-end condo sited in the heart of Mont Kiara was fully completed in December 2005.
Sunrise is a well known developer and undeniably excellent when it comes to workmanship. The developer uses good quality materials for construction. Besides that, Sunrise is also famous in terms of marketing. Mont Kiara Aman, is one of another Sunrise's successful projects catering to the needs of residents to live in a residence with a classy outlook.
In terms of facilities, Mont Kiara Aman has it all from swimming pools, car parks to gym. The condominium probably boasts about its two tennis courts fully furnished with synthetic grass, not a very cheap material for the surface of a court. Probably one of the best tennis courts among other condominiums in the same area. All facilities are thoroughly maintained, thus not many complaints are filed for the facilities.
The neighborhood of Mont Kiara Aman includes the Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club, Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort, Garden International School and Mont Kiara International School. Family with children does not have to worry about going far for education since the international schools are all within reach. The nearby country clubs will cater to the needs of the residents for recreational and interactive activities.
Mont Kiara Aman is also located in a strategic area where shopping malls and grocery stores can be easily accessed. You will be looking at about five to ten minutes by foot to the nearest shop houses. This would be quite convenient for residence to get food supplies.

Looking at Mont Kiara Aman, it is located closely to other condominiums around Mont Kiara, such as the Mont Kiara Bayu, Mont Kiara Astana, and is directly opposite Mont Kiara Damai. It is also about 300 m away from Duta - Sungai Buloh highway. The highway means traveling out of Mont Kiara would be easy, but still depends on where you are heading to.
Price of one unit at Mont Kiara Aman is quite reasonable, because Mont Kiara is one of the exclusive places in Klang Valley. Initially, the price was about RM400 psf (launch price) but as of September 2014, the subsale price starts from RM1,200,000, a little over 50% increase of the initial price. The subsale price of course depends on whether the unit is semi-furnished or fully furnished. However, in comparison to Mont Kiara Damai, it might not be worth paying the higher price because Damai is found to be slightly better than Aman in terms of quality and design.
Mont Kiara is a well-known address for many expatriates in Malaysia, thus Mont Kiara Aman is not left behind in terms of rental investment. As of September 2014, the rental price for a semi-furnished unit was found to be at around RM7,000. That said, fully furnished unit must have a higher rental price.
Even though both Mont Kiara Aman and Mont Kiara Damai are built by the same developer, Damai, which is a year older than Aman, is categorized to be a top-notch property than Mont Kiara Aman. This can be seen by the genuine marble used in Damai's finishes instead of the normal porcelain tiles in Aman's buildings. Furthermore, the design of the master bedrooms in Mont Kiara Aman is not very attractive. The space usage of the master bedroom is also very badly planned if compared to Mont Kiara Damai. There are some units where a king size bed would not fit nicely into the master bedroom.
Mont Kiara Aman's units with the size of about 2,100 sf will have a very large living room but very small bedrooms. Liking this design will be subjective among buyers / investors depending on whether the bedroom or living room area is more important. The balcony of the condominium looks nicely done, but that will only play a small role when choosing a good place to live in.
Condominiums at Mont Kiara are definitely better in terms of space compared to KLCC, because the condominiums here are much further apart. Overall, Sunrise did a very good job with most of its projects. For long term usage, Mont Kiara Aman would not have many problems, as quality materials were used for construction.
Maintenance services will also be good at Mont Kiara Aman, knowing that the developer is trustworthy and has done a very good job with all their previous projects. Looking at it as a whole, this condominium can be praised for its facilities and quality materials.
