Coming to Malaysia in 2021 will be the Park Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. The hotel, in partnership with PNB Merdeka Ventures Sdn. Berthed, a subsidiary of Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) and Malaysia’s largest fund-management company, will become the the first Park Hyatt hotel in the city. The hotel will be located in the PNB 118 tower, which is expected to be the tallest skyscraper in Southeast Asia and the third tallest in the world when it’s completed in 2020.

Park Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will occupy the top 17 floors of the 118-floor tower overlooking Stadium Merdeka, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the country’s independence was declared in 1957. The hotel will have 232 guestrooms, including 28 suites and 30 residential apartments, and is the first brand to announce plans to join the PNB 118 tower development.

The Park Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will have three restaurants, galleries and libraries, and over 20,000 square feet of meeting spaces. The hotel will also provide wellness offerings, including a six-treatment room spa, fitness center and a swimming pool with city views of Kuala Lumpur.
