Hyatt introduces service apartments

Travel News 01 Jul 2015

Hyatt House is expected to make its Malaysian debut in 2017.

Unlike traditional hotel accommodation, the Hyatt House brand provides apartment-style suites. Guest rooms come in studio, one- or two-bedroom suites, with fully-fitted kitchens and living rooms. Other serviced apartment-type perks include grocery shopping, laundry credits and pet-friendly accommodation options. Based in the affluent Mont’Kiara suburb, the extended stay hotel will be ideally located for business and leisure travellers, with easy access to the key business districts, top international schools and leisure options such as the Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club.

The property will feature 298 apartments, a restaurant, meeting facilities, fitness centre and pool. It will be part of a mixed use development (Arcoris Mont’Kiara) which will also house a range of offices, residential units and a retail plaza on site.

The development is being pursued in partnership with leading Malaysian development company, UEM Sunrise Berhad, and represents their first foray into hospitality.

Currently, the Hyatt House brand is exclusive to North America, although developments are underway to open the brand in several Chinese locations.

The first Hyatt House in Asia is expected to make its debut this summer in Shanghai's Jiading area. Hyatt House properties are also scheduled for development in Shenzhen, Sanya and Wuxi, China, as well as Mumbai, India.
