Grand Hyatt Hotel opens in Kuala Lumpur
The first Grand Hyatt hotel in Malaysia has open its doors. This luxurious and contemporary hotel, with 370 guestrooms and 42 suites, offers business travellers, tourist and local guests a sophisticated ambience.
Situated right next to Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the hotel is within walking distance of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, Suria KLCC, KLCC Park, Dewan Filharmonik Petronas as well as the Golden Triangle shopping and entertainment district. It is less then a 10 minutes walk to the Pavilion Shopping Centre via the covered sky-bridge outside the hotel.
Designed by the award-winning architecture firm, WATG and interior designers Bilkey Llinas Design, the hotel excudes contemporary grandeur. The ground floor is decorated with specially commissioned art pieces, such as the gold/bronze sculpture by Malaysian artist Adbul Multhalib Musa and a crescent shaped sculpture that is the centre piece of the ground floor lobby, sitting perfectly in the calm pond by the grand staircase.
For guest check-in, guests are whisked to the sky lobby on the highest level of the building, to enjoy a captivating view of the city’s skyline with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers as the backdrop. All guest rooms and suites are designed with floor to ceiling windows to maximise natural daylight, and this resulted in the rooms having expansive views of the city.
