What can you expect from your first visit to Pavilion Bukit Jalil?

Nestled in the booming neighbourhood of Bukit Jalil is the eponymous outpost of KL’s famous shopping mall. Pavilion Bukit Jalil is the crescendo of the transformation Bukit Jalil has undergone in the past decade from the home of the national stadium to a sought-after address for young urbanites.  

A gargantuan mixed development, Pavilion Bukit Jalil is a superstructure. The imposing image of a 560-metre-long façade of the highway-facing shopping centre is commensurate with a 1.8 million-square-foot retail space, which is adjacent to several luxury high-rise residential buildings. Together, they are bound to make Pavilion Bukit Jalil the heartbeat of all pleasurable things south of KL.

Blue Ice Snow Park 

Ever imagined yourself skating under the aurora? Neither have we, but the folks at Pavilion Bukit Jalil seem to have a knack for realising someone’s undiscovered fanciful desire. With simulated northern lights complementing a rather romantic ambiance as night falls, this ice rink will set the perfect stage for synchronous couples to break out some spellbinding spins and lifts. 

The Food Merchant 

Pavilion Bukit Jalil will mark the debut of The Food Merchant. According to a The Edge report, the premium supermarket is the first of many more outlets to come. 

Dadi Cinema 

China’s second largest cinema chain is an existing anchor tenant of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur and the synergy is emulated at Pavilion Bukit Jalil. You can expect comparable amenities and state-of-the-art facilities found at the Bukit Bintang flagship store here.

Curated Asian Precincts 

To enable an immersive shopping experience, tenants purveying food and snacks, arts and crafts, beauty and fashion accessories, gifts, souvenirs, and more reflective of the culture of popular destinations such as Japan, Thailand, South Korea, China and of course Malaysia, will be grouped together for a dynamic mix.
