Hyatt and property developer UEM Sunrise Berhad have opened the Hyatt House Kuala Lumpur, Mont'Kiara, marking the brand's entry into the extended-stay hotel segment in Malaysia and the Southeast Asia region. 

With 298 guestrooms and suites, the hotel currently is the largest Hyatt House in the world. The property has a three-meal restaurant, 3,200 square feet of meeting space, a 24-hour workout room, infinity sky pool and the Ten 37 Skypool Bar.
"We are proud to work with Hyatt and to bring the Hyatt House extended-stay experience to Malaysia," said Managing Director/CEO Anwar Syahrin Abdul Ajib of UEM Sunrise, noting the hotel "completes the overall implementation plan of our award-winning Arcoris Mont'Kiara development, which is designed by the London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners. It is a significant milestone that marks UEM Sunrise's inaugural venture into the hospitality industry as we expand our business portfolio."

The hotel is close to the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC), the nation's largest exhibition center.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.

Hyatt House Kuala Lumpur, Mont'Kiara is under the leadership of General Manager Bennett Peter and Director of Sales Daniel Mahathir.

The opening comes weeks after a Hyatt affiliate entered into a management agreement with Hokkaido Alpine Resort Management, an affiliate of LimeTree Capital, for a 91-room Hyatt House hotel in Niseko, Japan. The existing extended-stay hotel will be rebranded as the Hyatt House Niseko on December 16. The brand was first announced for Japan last year with plans for Hyatt House Kanazawa as part of a management agreement with ORIX. That property is expected to open in mid-2020.
