Hotel Review: Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur - Grand Executive Suite

Staycations in the city are getting increasingly more popular amongst Malaysian families. With staycations,  there is no hassle and stress of booking air tickets and you get to unwind without having to travel a long distance to get to your holiday destination. Less driving, more time to bond and spend time with each other... perfect!

One of the best luxury hotels you can stay at in KL is the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, with the most amazing view and unparalleled service to boot. The hotel has simply everything you need, from comfortable, luxurious and functional rooms to fantastic food and facilities.

From the moment you check in at the Sky Lobby on Level 39, strategically located on the highest level of the building, you will be greeted by a million dollar panoramic view of the city's skyline with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers as the backdrop.

This five-star luxury hotel boasts 411 spacious guestrooms including 42 suites, ideal for both business and leisure travellers. The suites are one of the largest in room size amongst five-star luxury Kuala Lumpur hotels in the heart of the city.

During our stay, we experienced the ultra spacious, luxe Grand Executive Suite (152 sq m), the epitome of opulence and elegance. Fresh orchids greeted us as we walked through the door into our suite, and we were immediately wowed by the vastness and well-appointed, stunning interior of the suite. The residentially-styled suite comes with a bedroom with a king-sized bed, marble bathroom with separate toilet, walk-in wardrobe, a spacious living area and dining area with a pantry (Nepresso coffee machine and a large fridge/freezer). The hotel also thoughtfully arranged two single rollaway beds for the kids as well as a welcome candy bar with delicious sweet treats.

The suite also comes with two large LED TVs as well as Bose sound systems and Apple TV and this kept the kids amused throughout the weekend with movies, cartoons, singing and dancing. And of course, to top it all off, the most amazing view of our beloved city.  Family life is all about creating memories and documenting them, what better way to do this than a mini photo shoot to immortalize the moment forever. The suite comes with large floor-to-ceiling windows, perfectly framing the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

The luxurious marble bathroom features a liquid crystal glass (LCG) enclosed cube, complete with a bathtub and rain shower. LCG technology provides guests with an option of additional privacy at the touch of a button, turning the glass opaque.

Our suite also granted us access to the Grand Club Lounge, located on the 37th Floor, similarly offering fantastic views of the city. As a consideration to all guests, there is a dedicated family room, with comfortable sofas and TV. Guests can enjoy their breakfast here should they wish, and evening cocktails from 6pm to 8pm, with a selection of drinks accompanied by hot and cold canapes.

There are three outstanding dining options here at the hotel, namely THIRTY8, JP teres and Poolhouse.

THIRTY8 is the signature restaurant at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, and is well-known for its legendary weekend afternoon tea and fantastic a la carte menu. Located on the second highest floor of the luxury hotel, the restaurant, bar and lounge boasts spectacular 360 degrees panoramic views of the KL city skyline, including a dramatic full frontal view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers.

Breakfast is also served here daily, with a wide range of fresh juices, pastries, Asian delights such as dim sum and noodles, egg station (great sous vide eggs!) and our favorite, the pancakes and waffles! Can't think of a better way to start our day - stunning views and great, wholesome food!

JP teres, located on the ground floor of Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur features the best of Malaysian cuisine and highlights a variety of authentic Malay, Chinese and Indian flavours complemented by warm and friendly service. They serve a weekday lunch buffet and an a la carte menu throughout the day. Some of the highlights during our meal here is the Nasi Ayam and Curry Laksa, authentic renditions of two Malaysian favourites.

Poolhouse is a stunning glasshouse facing the hotel’s swimming pool and surrounded by tropical greenery, serving both local and international favourites.

Speaking of the pool, it was our second favourite place in the hotel after our gorgeous suite. Surrounded by lush tropical greenery, the outdoor saltwater swimming pool offers countless hours of fun for families. Children can play in the wading pool (0.45m) or in the main pool with a depth of 1.2m, and the hotel even provides complimentary kid’s amenities such as children floats, kick-board, swim noodles and life jackets. Parents can, while keeping an eye on their children, relax in one of the private cabanas or lounge chairs at the edges of the pool, while enjoying the beautiful view and sunshine.

The hotel also houses a 24-hour gym with the latest cardiovascular and strength Technogym® machines as well as Essa Spa, offering a range of luxurious spa treatments with traditional Malay preparation of ingredients.

They are many other Insta-worthy spots around the hotel too, such as the grand staircase at the ground floor lobby.

For those who would like to explore the city, the hotel is nestled in the heart of the city centre and is within walking distance to the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, Suria KLCC, KLCC Park, Dewan Filharmonik Petronas as well as the Golden Triangle shopping and entertainment district. The Pavilion Shopping Centre is less than a 10-minute walk by the covered sky-bridge outside the hotel. Families can also visit Aquaria KLCC and Petrosains for a fun, educational day out.

Our family had a wonderful time here at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, with lots of fond memories and sweet moments shared between us. The Grand Executive Suite is the best option for family staycations, which we love for its spaciousness, views and amenities. Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur is now officially (in BabySumoKids words), "the best, and current favorite hotel in KL".

Thank you Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur for the amazing stay!
