KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 29): Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Jalil was structurally completed on Monday (Aug 29). Managed and operated by Hyatt Hotels Corp, the four-star hotel is developed by Malton Bhd, owned by Mygres Ceramiche Sdn Bhd, and constructed by Siab Holdings Bhd. The hotel was launched in 2020, and is expected to open its doors in the middle of 2023.
“We are thrilled to top off the hotel building as it marks an important milestone in our goal of establishing the first Hyatt Place hotel in Malaysia. We are proud to have good partners in Siab Holdings, Malton, Pavilion Mall Bukit Jalil, Hyatt Hotels and MyDecor Sdn Bhd, as the teamwork shown by all partner companies has been instrumental in bringing us to this point where we witnessed the hotel building being topped off,” said Mygres Ceramiche managing director Datuk Vincent Lye during the topping-off ceremony.
Also present at the event were Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil general manager Bennett Peter, Malton property development chief executive officer Kelvin Choo, Starbucks Malaysia managing director Datuk Sydney Quays, Siab Holdings managing director Ng Wai Hoe, and MyDecor general manager Ronald Wong.
Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil is the first international branded hotel in Malton’s 50-acre (20.23-hectare) Bukit Jalil City integrated development, which also comprises three-storey shop offices, the 1.8 million sq ft Pavilion Bukit Jalil shopping mall, and residential components, such as The Park Sky Residence and The Park 2.
“As the world reopened its doors to international travel, the tourism and hospitality sectors in Malaysia have started to see signs of recovery. This is where having an international hotel brand will help bring up the country’s tourism sector. With the Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil opening next year, it will also provide a boost to properties in Bukit Jalil City, and property values within the development are anticipated to appreciate in the next three to five years,” said Lye.
Sitting on a 0.64-acre freehold tract, Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil comprises a 14-storey block featuring a total of 250 hotel rooms and suites with built-ups ranging from 344 to 1,291 sq ft.
