Hyatt Hotels Corporation has signed a management agreement with Malaysia’s KL MIDTOWN Sdn. Bhd. to develop a new 450-key Hyatt Regency hotel in Kuala Lumpur.
Set to be completed in 2024, the new hotel will mark the return of the Hyatt Regency brand to the Malaysian capital.
“We are excited to be working with KL MIDTOWN Sdn. Bhd. on the development of Hyatt Regency Kuala Lumpur,” enthused group president – Asia Pacific, Hyatt, David Udell. “This will be our second collaboration with Hap Seng in Malaysia, after we recently announced our plans for the Hyatt Centric Kota Kinabalu. We are grateful for Hap Seng’s continued trust and are delighted to be part of these very exciting milestones and new experiences in Malaysia.”
Hyatt Regency Kuala Lumpur will be a state-of-the-art property designed by internationally renowned architect, Kengo Kuma. When completed, the hotel will be home to four food and beverage concepts including two bars, a market café and a Japanese restaurant. It will also feature an outdoor swimming pool, a fully equipped fitness centre and Regency Club – an exclusive lounge offering a relaxed environment to work, meet and socialise for club level guests.
The hotel will be situated just north of the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), the third largest MICE venue in Southeast Asia and the largest trade and exhibition centre in Malaysia. With a direct connection to MITEC, Hyatt Regency Kuala Lumpur will be easily accessible for business travellers who are visiting the meeting venue. The venue is located just eight kilometres northwest of Kuala Lumpur’s city centre, and 60 kilometres from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
