Barbie Ultimate Staycation and Barbie Café, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur has come up with the coolest idea for all Barbie lovers out there with their Barbie Ultimate Staycation. The team at the Grand Hyatt have worked tirelessly with Team Mattel in creating an entire floor of 14 themed rooms, comprising of either the Barbie Room or Barbie Suite. Each unit has been transformed into an empowering celebration of Barbie’s many careers, with every corner bathed in her iconic pink palette. Guests who choose to book these units are feted to creatively crafted and uniquely fashioned units which represent signature themes with stories to tell, namely Barbie You Can Be Anything, Barbie Fantasy and Barbie EXTRA.

Barbie fans, big and small, can also take advantage of the hotel’s exclusive Barbie Café, a glasshouse F&B venue designed to complement the overall magical pink experience. Book a breakfast date, afternoon tea or an evening cocktail session with the ladies (and gents – Ken, we’ve got your back!) either as part of the hotel stay, or as a standalone, Barbie-filled experience.

Kindly note that in adhering to strict SOPS, there is limited seating capacity. Strictly no walk-ins are allowed and pre-booking is required. Guests must also be identified with ‘Low Risk’ status on MySejahtera and have completed vaccination to be allowed entry.
