Green Leaf: Good hotel in Kuantan

I arrived to the bus station and at a walking distance I found this hotel, which looked nice, modern and comfortable. I asked for the price and booked a room.

Centrically located, good, clean and cheap.

Bamboo Chalets: Right on the beach

We stayed here for a week in April during 2013 and had 3 of the rooms for our group. A water taxi is needed to gethere from the Airport and we did have to wade through the sea a bit with our bags but as none of us fell over or dropped anything this wasn't an issue. The water taxi had been prebooked through the hotel for us when our booking was confirmed which made things easier once we landed.

The rooms were spacious but only had a ceiling fan and warm not hot water, which we didn't really find a problem. My room was up a very steep wooden staircase and had a troupe of monkeys that would jump on the room between 06:00 - 07:00 every morning but once you get usedto it this wasn't really an issue. The rooms closer to the beach didn't seem to have this excitement.

The day before we arrived there had been a storm so the walkways did have some debris covering them which meant you needed to be careful when walking around as it would have been easy to slip. Also some of the hand rails were in need of repair as there were some gaps around.

This hotel is right at the end of the path so when you were walking back to it you always knew you hadn't gone passed it which was a bonus when it was dark as there aren't many lights along the path.

Swiss Hotel: Great location

This shouldn't be confused with the Swissotel chains as it's not one of them. The hotel was very basic but a great price and location. The room we had didn't have windows but we didn't see that as a problem.

It was handy for the Masjid Jamek train station and was also a short walk to Petaling Street.

Romantic Hotels that I have stayed: Romantic Hotels in Malaysia

I am married to the most beautiful (in my eyes that is) and wonderful lady, therefore when we go for our holidays I sometimes look for Romantic hotels to pamper her. I normally look out for their honeymoon packages cause there's a lot of romantic things that go with the rooms. Below are my review of some of the hotels that we have stayed.

AVILLION PORT DICKSON
At Avillion Port Dickson we took their honeymoon package. It was my wife's birthday and I wanted something unique for her. Avillion didn't let us down. The room we had was a water chalet on the ocean that had an open air shower area as well as bath tub. The package comes with a bouquet of roses, candlelight dinner for two at the Crow’s Nest, a neck as well as face therapeutic massage also for two along with two nights stay with breakfast. This resort is actually surrounded with lots of greeneries so much so that my spouse commented she feels like we were in another country not close by to Kuala Lumpur. The meals were normal. We had our candle light on the outdoor patio which was pretty romantic cause| you are able to view the ocean. Services were good. Since there were very few people dining we had the terrace to ourselves. Breakfast was average however it’s alright as we are not big eaters.

BALA’S CHALET CAMERON HIGHLANDS
Cameron Highlands is famous for their cool weather, roses and strawberries. With these settings it’s a really romantic place to be with. For a truly romantic feel with an English Charm, try out this hotel called the Bala Chalet. The hotel is converted from an old English Boarding School. The hotel is very charming, the rooms also gives you the feel of an English Inn. The hotel is also not too expensive as the Ye Olde Smokehouse. But the only setback with this place is its food outlet. It’s rather small and there’s not much variety. Other than that you just need enjoy the place and gardens. That's what I did; just sit by the garden with my wife and just chit chat. The hotel is located on a hill with lush greenery around. So it’s really beautiful when the weather is colder and there’s a mist around. As it’s away from the main road it’s rather peaceful. For tea and scones go to this little quaint café above Marrybrown Fast Food in Tanah Rata.

IMPIANA CHERATING
Impiana Resort Cherating is definitely an ideal destination for a romantic escape by the beach. Impiana Resort is located among what I feel is the best spot of Cherating Beach. The resort is about 4 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur which is accessible by means of East Coast Expressway (Route E8), the rooms are designed with a traditional Malaysian, with a four poster beds. Almost all rooms have a view of the sea and the sound from the waves crashing on the seashore can be heard from your room. The Impiana is situated in East Coast's finest sandy shorelines therefore the beach there is clean and captivating especially on full moon nights. As there are not many resorts around so the area is rather quite. What we did here was have a night picnic where we got a small electric lamp and some finger food. Layout a mat and sit and enjoy the cool breeze and the heavenly sound of the waves. We also enjoyed the long walks on the beach, it was really romantic. Actually it was where we both fell in love as we were working there. Occasionally we go back there to recreate those romantic moments.

GRAND LEXIS PORT DICKSON
Grand Lexis is a one of a kind resort n Malaysia. This unique resort offers 3 room types. There's the Water Villas which is on stilts on the sea, Sky Pool Villas which is located in the hotel block as well as Garden Villas which is designed like residential houses. My spouse favors the Villas; she claims that it has that homely feeling. The unique aspect of this particular resort apart from its huge suites is that each every room features its very own swimming pool. It’s not a very large pool but big enough for a small family to have fun with. Whenever you feel like swimming, simply open the door and dive in your very own private pool. You can also watch your kids swimming from the comfort of your bedroom which overlooks the pool. Just a note the private swimming pool is actually 4ft deep, thus you need to pay careful attention to your kids. So imagine this resort has over 300 swimming pool, I’ve read its listed in the Malaysian Book of Records as the resort with the most swimming pool. Well if you would like a beach getaway then don’t choose this place cause there is absolutely no beach. The closest beach is actually next door at Glory Beach Resort however since the waterways are used by barges as well as ships, the beach can be dirty most of the time. It’s my suggested location that you can stay with your family likewise for newly married couples to have their honeymoon here...

Mandarin Oriental: Indulge yourself

Overall, we were very impressed with this hotel. Check in was efficient even though the hotel was extremely busy at the time. The room was spacious and had all the inclusions that you would normally associate with this kind of hotel. Breakfast contained a wide selection of foods – the Japanese selections were exceptional. The one thing I also liked about this hotel was the proximity to Suria KLCC – a short stroll and you were in a wonderful shopping centre. The pool area is nice – you get a great view of the city.

The pool area is very attraactive. You get a great view of the city. Breakfast contained a large selection of different styles of food.

The Danna Hotel: Great sea resort in Langkawi

We recommend this hotel as a tourist destination, because it is new, spacious, and contains all amenities for a pleasant stay. The staff is very helpfull and attentive. We had a sea view room with balcony.
Since it is a new hotel, the rooms and bathrooms are quite large, and well furnished.

The pool is excellent, with a lenght of approximately 40 meters. It is excellent for training. Near the hotel are a few seafood restaurants, where most guests go for dinner, although there is an excellent restaurant within the hotel.

Chinatown Boutique Hotel: Malaysia's Sweet Place

It has a comfortable space just right for a peaceful place to stay. The room was clean and the bed was laid with soft and skin friendly sheets. There was a pot for heating water for coffee. I suggest that you bring along with you instant coffee. The room had good cold air from the aircon vent. It has cable TV and most channels were in English. Unfortunately, there was no ref, no installed hair blower and no bath tub. There was cold and hot shower though. Staying in this Inn is really incredible. I love to return for another great stay.

Hotel Chinatown Inn: Best bed in the heart of Chinatown.

This place truly served its purpose. A place where you can retire and rest for the night and take comfort in leaving your things during the day. Its cheap, clean, accessible to lots of places, staff are courteous, and the room is a comfortable place to sleep.

If you're only looking a place to stay for the night this place is the best choice. Its near to practically everything from food, souvenir, market, and most importantly transportation.

Jalan Jalan Guesthouse, Malacca: The Best little hostel in Malacca

I have stayed at Jalan Jalan a couple of times, and am planning to go back in a month or so. I was really impressed with Sam, the partner/manager, who welcomed me when I arrived the first time, way after midnight. Next day I met a great mix of Australian and Swedish guests, plus a few locals who dropped in to have a chat. Although there are only one toilet and one shower, these were kept very clean, and the hot water in the shower worked just fine! This is one of the friendliest hostels I have stayed at.

The thing which makes Jalan Jalan Guesthouse stand out, is the friendly atmosphere.

Bushman: Staying close to Paradise

We spent seven nights in a very clean chalet in front of the see, very close to Paradise. No air-con but a fan and it was not too hot for us if at night you keep windows open (there aren't mosquitos).

A family is running the restaurant and the three chalet, two for 2/3 persons and one for 4/6 persons. Chalets are new and very clean. Bushman is the last resort you find at South end of Juara beach.

Peaceful, clean, good restaurant, cheap...

Aldy Hotel: Staying in the centre of Melaka

The building is beautiful and rooms are big. The staff is not very professional. We booked this hotel because they have a jacuzzi on the roof and we have a child, so we taught it would have been a good idea to stay there, just in the centre of Melaka and few steps from Chinatown and museums area. I insisted on the phone about the jacuzzi and they told me that they have a jacuzzi, but when we arrived the pool was empty. So we asked why and they told us they have to clean it and it will be ready for the next day in the afternoon. My friend argued a little with the lady at the reception and at the end they gave us a 10% discount. Not very nice at all.

At the ground floor there is a quite good Italian restaurant, Bamboo Hut Bistro, but a bit overpriced. Very friendly and professional staff.

Poor breakfast with fixed menu.

Good position, nice view of the town from the rooftop.
