ISKANDAR PUTERI, JOHOR, 19 JANUARY 2017 – Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor – which is part of the Shangri-La Group – has officially launched 12 distinct Hello Kitty-themed rooms. The first of its kind within the Southeast Asian region and designed in partnership with Sanrio, these vibrant rooms will elevate the experience of Hello Kitty enthusiasts staying at the waterfront hotel.

“Together with SANRIO HELLO KITTY TOWN and Hello Kitty Red Bow Cafe situated right next to the hotel, these new rooms will make Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor the perfect destination for fans of this global pop icon. Alongside eye-catching Hello Kitty in-room amenities, each room features a unique design and colourful illustrations to suit different moods and preferences,” said Paolo Campillo, General Manager of Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Johor.

Designed to spark the guests’ imagination, the Hello Kitty-themed rooms revolve around three themes, such as the swashbuckling Sailor, the romantic Pink Series and the magical Hello Kitty in OZ:


Embark on a memorable journey with the Admiral Redbow, The Sailboat, Kitty Jones’ Adventure or Captain Kitty’s Cabin. Facing the tranquil Puteri Harbour, the cool blue rooms come with nautical-inspired details.


All sugar and spice, and everything nice! Pink lovers can choose from the Pink Surprise, Hello Kitty and Tiny Chum, The Boudoir and Ice Cream-dulgence for a delightful rosy getaway.


Inspired by tale of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Emerald City, Lost Chapter, Tin Cottage and Munchkin Village will transport guests to a magical space where Hello Kitty takes on the mantle as the Great Wizard of Oz.

The Premier room selections are suites equipped with themed bunk beds adjoining a master bedroom and perfect for families with young children. All rooms come complete with Hello Kitty amenities, including stationery and specially embroidered towels and bathrobes. Rates start from RM800++ per room per night.
