Well, Hilton KL took another step further by collaborating with a renowned fashion designer in Malaysia: KHOON HOOI.

Khoon Hooi applauded Hilton Kuala Lumpur for creatively aligning on a project like this and commented, “Putting a spotlight on creative businesses through collaborations between fashion designers and a hospitality company is essential. Supporting talent to develop a successful working relationship is necessary. I applaud, Hilton Kuala Lumpur for taking these steps.”

Signature Handcrafted Perfection
Savour the unique tropical sensation, Dragon Blossom (RM38), this year’s signature snow-skin mooncake. The vibrant blend of bright fuchsia and cobalt blue is a testament to the robust flavours of the red dragon fruit and pineapple, heightened by the contrasting texture from the buttery-crunch of macadamia nuts. This mooncake is a delicious masterpiece, one worth sharing with your closest and dearest. Well, I tried it and I love it, for me - even I am not a big fan of dragon fruit, this is a surprising delight for my taste buds! And it's not sweet! Perfect!

Coveted Classics
Enjoy the season of merriment and tradition with our array of mouth-watering halal-baked mooncakes, a celebration best complemented with the company of loved ones and cups of hot Chinese tea. If I can suggest, Oolong tea is the best to couple with any of the mooncakes...
