Malaysia’s first Hyatt Place hotel is expected to open in mid 2023, and will be the first international branded hotel in the capital city’s Bukit Jalil affluent suburb.
The 250-room Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur Bukit Jalil will help establish Bukit Jalil as a destination for business, tourism, shopping and sports while at the same time, create new job opportunities for the Malaysian economy.
It will be connected to the Pavilion Bukit Jalil Mall, and a few minutes from the upcoming International Wellness City, The Asian Football Federation and the national sports hub for Malaysia.
“The hotel will be a great addition to the area as Bukit Jalil continues to grow. It will be an ideal base for business and leisure travellers visiting the many corporate facilities, sports arenas, and shopping venues in the area,” said Vincent Lye, managing director of Mygres Ceramiche, the owning company of the Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur Bukit Jalil.
The hotel will offer a wide range of facilities, such as an all-day dining restaurant, lobby lounge and bar, rooftop bar and pool, gym, yoga studio, and event spaces. There will also be a Starbucks Reserve on the ground floor.
Guests can check in and out of their hotel rooms remotely via the World of Hyatt application on their mobile devices.
Lye said: “Despite the challenges of recent years, we have continued to progress forward towards completion of the building as we have confidence in the tourism industry of Malaysia.”
