Hotel in Johor: Nouvelle Hotel, Kulai

All glases
Stayed in Superior room. Check in was done smoothly & on-time.
My room was on the 2nd floor & luckily the hotel has an elevator. To get to the room was quite confusing. It took me around 5 minute to find the room. It was not marked properly & the rooms are not in proper order.

The room was just nice for me with a queen size bed & a window. I like the concept of the room which is based on glass. Even the wardrobe & table was based on glass & aluminum which looks nice. However, the room smell was terrible. Its has a aromatherapy smell which is very bad & i have trouble sleeping due to it.

The room has a flat screen television with bad reception. The tempered glass bathroom has a glass door & overhead shower area.
Pro's : Interesting Setting
Con's : Bad Smell
Checked out experienced just ok.

Simple but Nice Bathroom

Setiu, Terengganu : Terrapuri Heritage Village



First heard of this place from my dear cousin few years back & since then I've been secretly digging up about it. What is so special about this resort that even my cousin from across the causeway had heard about? So we went for a short quiet getaway from the city last March to Terrapuri. I did all the reservation via email & they were very helpful & prompt. Thank you Ms Akmal & Ms Maslina.

We flew from KL to Kuala Terengganu, stayed 1 night at the city & drove a rental car the next day to Setiu. Terrapuri situated about 50km from Kuala Terengganu. The resort situated at the end of the road of Kampung Mangkuk, Penarik in Setiu, right in front of the beautiful setting of coconut trees & beach. Heaven on earth..

Once there, we rang the bell & the staff  will open the gate for u. The resort is very private & I was relieve & delighted because I have 1 thing less to think about during the vacation --> the safety of my "always-full-of-energy" kids. 2 boys (8 & 6) & 2 yr old girl.

Our room 'Dusun' was right in front of the pool. I started to feel the "I think I'm really going to rest" idea is going to materialize. The room was gorgeous, all wooden & antique & they even decorate the room with flowers!



The bathroom.. I don't have a word to describe it best. It just brilliant, beautiful, clean, comfortable & spacious.

The view of the resort at night was breathtaking! It was beautiful & quiet, just what we need..  

We had chosen the package with 2 meals (breakfast & dinner), but believe me, i gained weight just staying there 2 nights! They also send tea to our room in the evening. You don't have to worry about food there.

The staffs (all female) were very helpful & friendly. We were pampered like royalties & they tried to attend to our needs as best as they could. Thank you  Faizah & friends. 

I'm very impress & admire the owner's effort. All the houses were actually bought from original village owners all over Terengganu. He bought the house, dismantle it & rebuilt it back to its original design. The houses were name after their original location.The only additional was the bathroom which they beautify it to cater the guest needs. What I learn from the staff that the initial plan was to set a museum but somehow it became a beautiful resort instead. 

If you are into nature, architecture, & quiet (really really quiet) getaway, this is PERFECT place for you. Did I mention that there's no TV as well?

Felda Residence Hot Springs, Sungkai Perak

This is one of the resort in Malaysia that I found so beautiful & nice to relax in. I never thought that this kind of place do exist in Malaysia. We spent only 1 night (1 bedroom villa) & we didn't even get to explore the place. The kids (even myself) enjoyed our private pool (the water was warm, I assumed the water is tap water mix with the hot spring's) so much we didn't even care to go out of our villa. After had enough with the outside pool, the kids continued bathing in the bathroom 'little pool'. They really cleaned themselves well that day :) The villa was so spacious & great for big family. Would really like to go back to this resort..

The food was nice & the staffs was very friendly and helpful. A 5 star treatments all the way.. Kudos to Felda!!

No need to say much about this place. The pics will explains everything I love about the resort.

The last photo is the what deluxe room look like from the outside.
Quite nice.

Rate: 1 bedroom villa - RM450 ( weekdays) with private pool & breakfast
Deluxe room - RM150 (weekdays)

Taiwan ~ Taichung Holiday Inn Express Hotel

My recent trip in Dec 09 was quite interesting. I had to travel alone via airplane from KLIA to Taiwan & need to get a High Speed Train from Taiyuon to Taichung which was about 45 minutes by train. Language boundary was a problem. Most Taiwanese having quite difficulty to talk in English. You need to ask around for direction in order to get to places.

Well, arriving after 4 hours in the flight was quite tiring. From airport i have to get a bus to High Speed Train (10-15minutes via bus). Then the HST takes about 45minutes to arrive in Taichung. I check in at Holiday Inn Express which is situated in the middle of the city. What can i say it was very cosy & comfortable hotel. One thing for sure its quite hard for me to find food. But i manage to get an enjoyable food experience after surfing the net.

The room was very spacious with nice clean bed. I can stay it's a 5 star room but the hotel is only 3 star i think. I have a quite nice view from my room as well. The TV is flat screen with an office table.

The bathroom was quite big & lovely. Well, its nicely done bathroom with quite relaxing shower area. Well, what more can i say, picture shows a thousand words.. Please refer picture above.

Overall :- Excellent hotel. Definitely will stay here if i come again. Simple breakfast & at least there's something for me to eat. (pork & others not mixed). They even have milo.

Rate :- Online booking is a must. The online booking rate was slightly less than walk in.

Overall: Very statisfied with the rooms. Had a great zzz, and for the 1st time my eldest son slept peacefully alone on the single bed. Value for the money. My only concern is that the door to the balcony can be opened by kids (my son is 3) easily and it kindda scared me, so I put a heavy chair in front of the door. I think they should maybe put some kind of an extra lock on the door that's unreachable for the kids. Other than that I love my stay there.

There's a lot of interesting places to eat in Pahang. Definately a great place to have a nice 'santai' holiday. For where to eat please refer HERE
