Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur

This festive season, Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur unveils a sensational selection of mooncakes for gifting – perfect for nurturing and renewing those special bonds with family, friends and colleagues. Handcrafted by the talented Yun House team, these traditional sweets commemorate the Mid-Autumn Festival, an annual celebration across Malaysia.

Featuring intricate designs and indulgent fillings, mooncakes are prized as a symbol of reunion, harmony and completeness. Four Seasons signature mooncakes are crafted at Yun House, under the expert guidance of Chef Jimmy Wong.

“Gifting and sharing mooncakes is a beloved Malaysian tradition,” says Chef Jimmy. “This year, the ritual has taken on added importance, since many of us haven’t been able to meet loved ones and close colleagues for a long time. Sending mooncakes is a way to express our good wishes, to remind people that we care about them and value their continued presence in our lives.”

Those who favour delicate artistry can opt for the homemade Snow Skin Mooncakes, available in two luscious flavours: Musang King Durian, and Bird’s Nest with Red Dates. In the spotlight this year are Yun House x Bar Trigona Mooncakes, reflecting cocktail-inspired tastes from the award-winning bar. Savour Old-Fashioned, a masterful medley of whiskey, trigona honey and cedar wood bitters, or sample Judgement, concocted with ingredients such as jackfruit, aged rum and triple sec. Famed for its locally-oriented approach, Bar Trigona was recently recognised among Asia’s Top 50 Best Bars for the third year in a row.

Also on offer are Baked Mooncakes with luxurious fillings such as Pu Er Tea Paste with Tangerine Skin, and “Szechuan” Ma La Mung Bean. The selection includes summer-inspired creations such as Mango with Lotus Seed Paste, as well as mooncakes with an egg yolk, symbolic of the harvest moon and a sign of good luck.

Adding a touch of magic is the Four Seasons gift box. Its sumptuous shade of red is reminiscent of glamorous theatres and mythical dragons, while the embossed floral pattern evokes a feeling of joy and harmony with nature.

Four Seasons mooncakes are priced between MYR 42 and 78 per piece, with a host of special savings on offer:

  • 25 percent savings for early bird orders before July 20, 2021
  • 20 percent savings for Lifestyle Members
  • 15 percent savings when paying through partner banks
  • 15-30 percent savings for corporate orders

Free delivery within 10 kilometres (6.2 miles) is available with a minimum purchase.

The Mooncake Menu at Four Seasons Hotel Kuala Lumpur is available for order from 1 July 2021. Mooncakes can be picked up from 20 July 2021 onwards.

This year, Hilton Kuala Lumpur welcomes the Mid-Autumn Festival (2021) with a renewed celestial spirit of cultural traditions. With gatherings on hold, timeless rituals take a different form this year. For families near and far, the Jade Moon gift box is an invitation to make this year’s festivities an occasion to remember.

“We’re looking at a different kind of reunion this year. While still honouring the moon-gazing tradition, let’s look at the beauty of sharing, and being in each other’s thoughts during these changing times. After all, the mooncake boxes of today are made as a gift, which makes our box all the more meaningful.” – Carmen Teo, Commercial Director of Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Featuring an opulent ceramic tea set and Chynna’s Signature Eight Treasures Tea with your choice of Hilton’s traditional baked or snow skin mooncakes, this 2-tiered mint-green round box is a celebration of modern tastes while paying homage to the moon’s reflection in a prestigious shade of the jade – a symbol of wealth, peace, and prosperity revered in the Chinese community. The chic minimalist design features gold hot stamping of the Hilton logo surrounding the box, and a brown faux-leather handle with a bamboo-inspired lid. On the inside, the box is fully lined with velvet fabric to safely cushion the premium goods.

A Chynna 2021 Special

The glowing highlight of this year’s signature snow skin mooncake is the luxurious Royal Jade which is priced at RM38. The name takes inspiration from the mooncake’s mint-green appearance; evoking a dignified atmosphere reminiscent of the green jade worn by imperial court officials.

A smooth blend of white lotus paste and salted mung bean filling, a bite into the mooncake’s centre is a delightful contrast with its sweet, crunchy cashew nut nibs.

Le Meridien’s TIMELESS BAKED CLASSICS add a touch of nostalgia with the White Lotus Paste with Double Yolk, Mother-of-Pearl Pure Lotus Paste with Single Yolk;  Assorted Fruits & Nuts, and Red Bean Paste.

Each year, Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur also introduces a curated collection of CONTEMPORARY SNOW SKIN CREATIONS that is locally-inspired. Delight in the caramelised flavours of ‘pisang emas’, enrobed in snow skin made of blue pea flower resulting in a snow skin mooncake that features ethereal strokes of blue on white with artisanal Caramelised Banana ‘Emas’ with Sea Salt. For a taste for the exotic, the unique Grapefruit with Wild ‘Tualang’ Honey (collected from the Malaysian rainforest by the Tualang Orang Asli) features crisp fruity notes with juicy bites of grapefruit which are soaked with wild ‘Tualang’ honey for up to 24 hours. Making a comeback is crowd-favourite coffee-infused snow skin mooncake, now with illy Coffee “Macchiato” & Roasted Hazelnut where illy Coffee is blended in both snow skin and paste – a recognition towards Le Méridien’s global brand partnership with illycaffe.

Crowning the collection are the EXQUISITE BOLD & BOOZY SNOW SKIN GEMS like the Italian Delight: Prosecco-Raspberry Limoncello – which comes in a prosecco infused shell, it boasts a refreshing sweet-tangy flavour that comes from the raspberries and zesty notes of limoncello.

“As one of the most auspicious festivals in Chinese culture, the Mid-Autumn Festival is often filled with endearing moments of meaningful family reunions, a tradition we are extremely proud to be a part of, and to associate it with the global Le Méridien Family programme. Our award-winning mooncakes have emerged as winners in The Star Newspaper’s Mooncake Awards for two consecutive years (2019 & 2020) – an accomplishment we’re all extremely proud of considering we only started to introduce them to the Malaysian market back in 2019. We aim to continue to build on these achievements, and I am confident that this year’s flavours will definitely continue to impress!” said Michael Delargy, General Manager, Le Méridien Kuala Lumpur.

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

This August, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur features the award-winning Malaysian fashion designer, Melinda Looi, in an exclusive collaboration for its Mid-Autumn series.

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s original mooncakes make its debut this year centered on the ideals of Tuán Yuán 团圆. Melinda Looi 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. On top of the intricate mooncakes being nestled in the box, ‘The Jade Tote’ comes together as its carrier to complete the whole look. The uniquely designed multi-purpose tote bag is a subtle invitation to reminisce one’s childhood memory given its resemblance of the Jade Rabbit’s silhouette, mainly inspired from the Mid-Autumn legends like the mystical hare that calls the Moon its home. Instilled as part of the tote bag’s original design, the intricacy of the patterns was adopted from the carpeting elements of Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s Poolside Residence—one of the many imaginative muses Melinda manifested during her curation visits. It captures the notion of bringing home not only the mooncakes, but a memento of the hotel too.

Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s mooncake flavours, include a medley of traditional essences, like White Lotus and Black Sesame, as well as modern elements, namely Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Truffle.

“It is a great opportunity for us to leverage on the significance of Mid-Autumn Festival with a meaningful approach given the trying times we are going through. Our native chefs have an extraordinary take on the mooncake flavours and I felt that having some modern elements infused would also add up to the current taste trends. What makes our mooncake series different this year is having the renowned Melinda Looi onboard, which is an honour as her imaginative concept captivated us on her first try.” – Olivier Lenoir, General Manager, Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

“Together with Olivier and team, we envisioned for Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur’s Mid-Autumn series to preserve the story-telling splendour this year. My idea of an honest yet compelling concept goes back to what this festival is all about—family. It is the quintessential element of Mid-Autumn and curating those designs are my way of taking Grand Hyatt and all mooncake fans a trip down memory lane, what more at a time like this. There is something for everyone in the family—mooncakes to enjoy, a timeless game board to keep entertained and a tote bag to re-purpose.” – Melinda Looi

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