The cat's whiskers

Any fan of the Hello Kitty will feel like the cat who got the cream when they next check into Jen Puteri Harbour hotel in Johor, Malaysia.

The waterfront hotel, part of the Shangri-La Group, has launched 12 colourful and eye-catching Hello Kitty themed hotel rooms – the first of their kind in Southeast Asia and designed in partnership with Sanrio, the creators of Hello Kitty.

As well as having Hello Kitty in-room accessories like towels, stationery and dressing gowns, each room has its own unique design and colourful illustrations, so whatever your family's mood, you'll find a room you love.

The rooms are arranged into three themes:

Sailor Hello Kitty

– with blue hues and swashbuckling nautical details

Pink Hello Kitty

– perfect for anyone who loves sugar and spice, and all things nice

Hello Kitty in Oz

– inspired by the tale of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, these rooms transport guests into a world where Hello Kitty becomes a magical wizard

The hotel is just one of an array of Hotel Kitty attractions families can enjoy in the area. Sanrio Hello Kitty Town, a family theme park, and the Hello Kitty Red Bow Cafe are next door to the hotel.
