Kuala Lumpur is one of my favorite cities in the world. It’s probably my favorite food city, from satay to prawn mee to amazing roti. It’s an interesting city with good food — probably the most decadent breakfast buffets in the world — and some of the best deals on luxury accommodations.
I’ve been back, and it’s only gotten better. It’s one of the top hotels in the city, has perhaps my favorite club lounge breakfast, and has fantastic views of the Petronas Towers.
It’s a TripAdvisor 2016 Travelers Choice award winner and the #1 ranked hotel in Kuala Lumpur. I’ve seen very few properties with reviews this good.
And I ran a giveaway of three nights there, in an upgraded room with club lounge access, thanks to Luxury Travel Diary.
As I’ve said before, folks who already know about these auctions don’t like this added attention, because there don’t seem to be enough bidders relative to the value of the offerings and some of these items go way too cheap.
- Here are their auctions. The auctions in Asia are going super-cheap.
- Here are their auctions in North America.
- And here are the ones ending soon which are probably the best to check out right now – to get an idea of just how good a deal you’re likely to get.
Luxury Travel Diary wanted to highlight some of their deals, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 3 night hotel stay at the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur.
- 3 nights stay in a Club Twin Towers View Room that is inclusive of club benefits and access to our dedicated Grand Club Lounge which offers daily continental breakfast, all-day light refreshments as well as evening canapes and cocktails.
A funny thing happened on the way to giving away this stay.
I drew a winner. I emailed the winner. I posted about the results. I emailed the winner again. I gave them a deadline to respond. I followed up a third time. I never heard back.
So I drew a new winner.
Thanks to Random.org the winner is comment 321.
For avoidance of doubt, I have no affiliation with Luxury Travel Diary or Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. I am not getting anything in exchange for running this giveaway other than an opportunity to share the place with readers.
Eric has a great trip to look forward to!
