A Special Affair at Hotel Maya

HOTEL Maya celebrated its first birthday recently with 32 other individuals named Maya recently.

Singer and actress Maya Karin was also part of the group.

The hotel ran a two-week-long campaign searching for individuals with the name Maya throughout Malaysia.

Those registered in the search by the hotel stood a chance to win the ultimate prize of a lifetime stay at the hotel.

Among those shortlisted for the birthday party was male participant Mayakumaran Subramaniam.

Mayakumaran, 30, said he was often mistaken for a female due to his name.
Maya Shalfawani Mohd Sakih was the lucky winner and she took home the grand prize of the lifetime hotel stay.

“I was only told about the campaign last weekend by my sister-in-law,” said Maya Shalfawani, who is the only girl in the family of five boys.

She plans to celebrate her win with her mother, who is celebrating her 53rd birthday this month.

After the cake-cutting ceremony, guests took the opportunity to take photographs with Maya Karin.

Melvin said the hotel will continue to set the benchmark as a trendsetter and innovator.
