Hyatt is continuing to expand its presence in the Southeast Asian nation of Malaysia with the opening of a new Hyatt Place property.

Here’s what you need to know.

Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur Bukit Jalil Is Now Open

This brand-new Hyatt Place hotel in the Malaysian capital has 250 rooms in the city’s new business hub, Bukit Jalil.

Amenities include all-day dining, a grab-and-go market, a bar, free Wi-Fi, meeting and event spaces, and a fitness center.

The hotel is a 30-minute drive to Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (SZB), a 45-minute drive to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL), and a short drive to the Awan Besar train station.

“As Bukit Jalil continues to grow and thrive economically, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to the area and this country,” said General Manager Kevin Flynn. “With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking guests can easily accomplish what they need to do while on the road.”

Bottom Line:

Hyatt has a sizable presence in Kuala Lumpur with properties from several brands including the Alila Bangsar Kuala Lumpur, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, and the upcoming Park Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, which opens in the third quarter of 2024.

Booking Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil

Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur, Bukit Jalil, is now open for guests. The hotel is participating in the World of Hyatt program, meaning you you can earn and redeem World of Hyatt points for stays.

The hotel is a Category 1 World of Hyatt property, which means awards start at just 3,500 points per night for off-peak dates and up to 6,500 points per night on peak nights. Cash rates start at just $77 per night for fall and winter dates. Another way to book is by using a Hyatt Category 1-4 free night certificate.

When you’re ready to book, use a credit card that rewards you for World of Hyatt purchases.

It’s not the easiest to earn World of Hyatt points, but if you have a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points, you can transfer them to World of Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

Final Thoughts

World of Hyatt fans now have a new hotel at which they can earn and redeem points and qualify for elite status if their travels take them to Malaysia. And, as a Category 1 hotel, the hotel is affordable using cash or points.
