Giveaway: 3 Nights With Club Access and Premium View at One of My Favorite Hotels in Asia

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.

My favorite place to stay there is the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. I first stayed there after it opened in 2012.

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 2017 Travelers Choice award winner and the #3 ranked hotel in Kuala Lumpur. I’ve seen very few properties with reviews this good.

And I’m going to give away a 3 night weekend stay there, in an upgraded view room with club lounge access, thanks to Luxury Travel Diary.

This is a very special giveaway, thanks to my good friends at Luxury Travel Diary. Regular readers know them as a high-end travel blog with great reviews. They’re based in the UK and run travel auctions with real bargains.

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 for many of their best offerings relative to the value available. Some of their items go way too cheap.

This prize is being given away by the hotel and Luxury Travel Diary, I’m just helping to highlight it and randomly select the winner.

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 night weekend stay (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night) 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.

I’d add that the club lounge staff is fantastic here. And offerings are extensive both hot and cold (including from a made to order menu at breakfast).

This prize is being given away by the hotel and Luxury Travel Diary, I’m just helping to highlight it and randomly select the winner. The stay can be taken up through September 15, 2018 (so roughly a year’s validity on the prize).

To enter: leave a comment on this post with your favorite item up for auction at Luxury Travel Diary, or why you would choose to stay at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. You may enter two times if you wish and answer those two questions one time each in separate comments.

Contest deadline and drawing winner: Entries close Friday, October 6at Noon eastern. I will draw winner with the assistance of

The fine print: Advance booking is required and it’s subject to availability. Terms and conditions apply.

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.

I will obtain the winner’s contact information to receive the 3 night weekend stay voucher. The hotel is solely responsible for providing prize to winner. All decisions made in the course of running this giveaway are final and unappealable and your entry signifies your acceptance. The goal here is to make readers aware of a pretty cool auction opportunity, and to give away a stay. So please don’t make it hard on me for doing so!

This is a great opportunity to venture into Malaysia (some fabulous beach resorts) or visit elsewhere in Southeast Asia — from Thailand to Vietnam or Indonesia.
