Neighbouring the Petronas Twin Towers, The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur continues to position itself as a five-star hotel known for celebrations and big occasions, like Christmas and the New Year.

This year, the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur brings back its festive repertoire with take-home gourmet meals and sweets, holiday buffets and joyous entertainment.

And if 2020 has had you redecorating your home and in nesting mode, why not host the celebrations at home with peace of mind? A full-course spread which includes gingerbread, whole roasted turkey, stollen, and a Yule log is available for orders on the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur Online Store, to be delivered right to your doorstep.

For holiday plans at the hotel (giving you a reason to dress up this year), The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur welcomes you to these special events:

Christmas Celebrations

Fresh oysters, Blue Swimmer Crab, Canadian Lobster Cocktail — why choose one when you can have as much as you want… and as much as you want? THIRTY8 and JP teres are hosting holiday buffets with Western, Oriental and Japanese favourites, with Malaysian specialities exclusively at JP teres.

Kids (and adults) will also have Santa Claus and Christmas carollers through the night to look forward to. The buffets will be held on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
