Creating Barbie´s Dream House reportedly took around 20 weeks. Among its highlights are a pink-colored pool cabana, a DreamCamper and a collection of Barbies launched in the past 60 years.
Patrons can also expect an entirely Barbie-themed service, such as a photo opportunity in the doll's pink-colored high heels, trying on Barbie-style clothes and enjoying Barbie-inspired menus at the hotel's MADERA restaurant.
The experience starts at US$189 per night on weekdays and $229 on weekends. (sop/kes)
