In partnership with High Steet Holdings, Yotel has announced its debut in Malaysia with the signing of Yotel Kuala Lumpur, a 290-key hotel projected to open in Summer 2025.
Forming part of a mixed-use development in the capital’s Central Business District, the property will feature a rooftop pool and bar offering views of the city skyline, as well as signature brand amenities like a multi-functional dining and co-working space, fitness centre and Grab + Go snack station.
“Following the success of Yotel Orchard Road and YotelAir Changi Airport in Singapore, expanding our brands in Malaysia forms an essential part in growing our operating cluster, distribution strategy and brand awareness in Southeast Asia,” says CEO Hubert Viriot. “We are privileged to have been selected by High Street Holdings to operate this new hotel in Kuala Lumpur, which will be a true flagship for our brand, and hopefully the first of many hotels across Malaysia.
Asia continues to be a key territory for our growth, and with Kuala Lumpur joining the pipeline, alongside Tokyo and Bangkok, we are doubling our current footprint in the region and are excited to enhance the portfolio even further.”
Daniel Yip, Partner at High Street Holdings, comments: “We are extremely honoured and excited to be partnering with one of the hotel industry’s most innovative brands. Yotel has proven that with its modern and sustainable smart design as well as creative use of technology it is a very attractive brand for guests and real estate owners alike. Kuala Lumpur is a vibrant city with a wide range of hotel options and the addition of a Yotel will bring a new type of offering to the city centre, which we are confident will attract both business and leisure guests.”
