As many countries relax entry and travel restrictions, we'd like to share with you the recent opening of Sanrio Themed Rooms at the Grand Hi-Lai Hotel Kaohsiung in Taiwan's south.

Are you ready to have your heart exploded? Let's get started!

Grand Hi-Lai Hotel Kaohsiung recently reopened 8 Sanrio-themed rooms, including Hello Kitty, Melody, and Kuromi, Badtz Maru, Keroppi, and others, after a 7-year hiatus. The decoration is full of character elements, and the room card and accessories, as well as the Hello Kitty limited-edition apple juice and welcome refreshments, are available in a limited-edition pattern. Fans will be hesitant to checkout for the exquisite designs.

Hello Kitty, Keroppi, Melody, Little Twin Stars, Cheeky Monkey, Kuromi, and Bad Badtz-maru are among the Grand Hi-Lai Sanrio themed room stars.

Ten style rooms are designed, not just the doors, walls, and so on, and are inspired by character stories. Surfaces, headboards, cabinets, sofas, ceilings, and bathrooms are all matched with limited decoration arrangements, and towels and toiletries are replaced with limited patterns as well.

In addition to towels, room cards, bottled water, toiletries, slippers, and laundry bags are available for pick-up. (Photo courtesy of Zhou Yiting)

Hello Kitty appears on three themed-rooms in the room layout section. A romantic flower design is featured on "Elegant Paris." The headboard is made of Hello Kitty's signature pink leather, which was imported from Japan. The "Habor Family Room's" exclusive balcony is specially matched with European style. The arched windows provide a view of the Love River Bay; the "Family Suite" is a connecting room that provides two types of scenery at the same time.

The main color in "Ocean Sailor" is blue, and the headboard is shaped like a "rudder." Checking in is like embarking on a boat adventure, echoing the image of Kaohsiung Port. "Street Trend" is based on a school bus concept that will be revealed in the next stage.

Melody performs "Princess Fairy Tale" and "Country House" in two styles. The Keroppi "Natural Prairie" theme is created by using fresh grass green. On the same theme, you can also see his friends "Sunny Baby Teruteru" and "Snail Denden."

The main colors in Little Twin Stars' "Marshmallow Forest" are pink and lake green, with stars, clouds, and other elements presenting a magical feeling. There is also Kuromi's "Goethe Lolita" room, Bad Badtz-"Superstar Maru's Studio" room, and Cheeky Monkey and partner's play in the "Dinosaur Volcano Adventure" room. The lazy and cute Gudetama-themed room will be released in the future, so please keep an eye out for it!
