Malaysia’s Barbie Hotel is a Hot Pink Themed Getaway

There’s a high chance that, even if you didn’t grow up with a Barbie fascination as a kid, at least one of your siblings or close friends did. Barbie mania started taking over the world in 1959 and never really left the scene. Remember those vibrant, Barbie-pink bedrooms you or your friends daydreamed about when you were younger? There’s now a hotel in Malaysia bringing all of those dreams to life.

Malaysia’s swanky Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur is already a pretty impressive spot in the capital city but now it’s been upgraded with a vibrant pink makeover: Barbie’s in town. Designed as the ultimate Barbie staycation, this is a hotel that doesn’t hold back when it comes to seriously impressive themed makeovers.

The Barbie hotel is the first of its kind in Malaysia and doesn’t just stop at pink bedrooms. Nope, everything about your experience here comes with a Barbie pink hue, from the Barbie cafe right through to the themed meals. Each room in the Barbie-themed hotel has its own signature Barbie theme, from Barbie You Can Be Anything to Barbie EXTRA.

Each Barbie bedroom comes with all of the trimmings. We’re talking about iconic pink palettes celebrating Barbie’s career over the years. King-size beds come with Barbie bedspreads and a comfy in-room sofa comes complete with bright pink Barbie cushions. Bathrooms feature the usuals – a bathtub and rainfall shower – but with a little extra sparkly pink-themed attention to detail. And, because the hotel sits in Kuala Lumpur, every room comes with stunning skyline views of the city.

The Barbie hotel includes 14 rooms in total, set high up on the 33rd floor with varying levels of Barbie attention right up to the Barbie Suites. And these are even more special: think glittering lights in every direction, retro-style chairs straight out of your childhood interior design dreams, signature Barbie wallpaper, and a round-shaped marble bathtub.

Nespresso coffee machines, a large LED TV, minibar, and all of the other usual essentials are also included in all of the Barbie rooms. 

If you’re looking for the full experience, the hotel also offers packages like Made in Malibu and Suite Dreams, which include not only your stay at the Barbie hotel but also other inclusions throughout the hotel. This leads us on to the next part: the Barbie Cafe.

Take a wander downstairs from your Barbie room or suite and you’ll find a glasshouse restaurant of photogenic wonders with Barbie written all over it. The Barbie Cafe serves breakfast, afternoon tea, and evening cocktail to complement your luxurious hotel stay. Choose between the Pink Afternoon Tea or the Barbie Pink Romance Dinner for a true one-of-a-kind experience. And, if you’re visiting with kids between the age of 3-11, they’ll even get to leave with their own Barbie doll. 

For an epic Barbie-themed getaway, book a stay at the Barbie Ultimate Staycation.
