Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur rediscovers Mooncake Festival with Fashion designer Melinda Looi

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur rediscovers Mooncake Festival with Fashion designer Melinda Looi

The anticipation for the perennial delicacy that comes around every Mid-Autumn has us feeling over the moon. Come August, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur features the award-winning Malaysian fashion designer, Melinda Looi, in an exclusive collaboration for its Mid-Autumn series.

An enthralling array of Mid-Autumn sets awaits mooncake lovers as we rediscover the nostalgia of this auspicious festival together with tales that are held close to heart.

The Mid-Autumn Festival has been an ancient celebration that often emphasizes the reunion and rebirth of familial bonds through traditions that are more than just mooncake-eating. From these cherished fundamentals, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s original mooncakes make their debut this year centred on the ideals of Tuán Yuán 团圆. Melinda, our well-regarded partner, has stepped up with her avant-garde creativity by curating a concept based on her ingenious take on ancestral inspirations from her childhood and the hotel itself. Encasing the velvety mooncakes, the packaging design features ‘The Grand Gambit’, priced from MYR 253.13 nett, which comes with a dual advantage whereby it can be re-used daily for entertainment and serve as a classic ornament to beautify one’s home.

‘The Grand Gambit’ presents a western chess box set that functions as a 2-in-1 game board with complete chess pieces and dice for a genuine game or two with the family. On top of the intricate mooncakes being nestled in the box, ‘The Jade Tote’ comes together as its carrier to complete the whole look. 

As we circle back to what the palate fancies, our mooncake flavours, redefined with a twist, entail an exquisite medley of traditional essences, like White Lotus and Black Sesame, and modern elements, namely Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Truffle. Courtesy of our food connoisseurs and their trusty experience in crafting classic essences of the Orient, these flavours have been carefully selected and perfected, after a series of brainstorming and sample-tasting sessions taking place, to ensure the balance of traditional and modern aspects of the mooncakes is not amiss.

Exclusively available for pre-order on Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur Online Store from now, mooncake lovers have the choice of opting for baked skin mooncakes or snow skin mooncakes to go with ‘The Grand Gambit’ set.
