Sugary Sand Motel: Budget motel, not bad!

It's right next to Sunset , we were force to move here as no more availability with the first one.
The location is as good as Sunset, good place for budget traveller. There are about 12-15 small red chalets , facility is very basic. The big advantage is the beachside location.

There is a small restaurant on the right side of this motel, good breakfast , I like the pancake! Very reasonable price!

SUNSET BEACH HOTEL: Experiencing 3 hotels in one week

We found hotel infm at last minute before we left. Unfortunately we got only the first 2 nights booking with "Sunset" beach resort.
Thanks to VT friend, Elisabella!
It's a family run hotel right at the beach, they have about 20 chalets total. The tropical garden is especially nice, most of their clients are European .The breakfast place has a nice sea view.

Room is clean and tiny, very quiet.You can have a beer at the bacony in front of the door, or just lie on beach listening to the sea waves.

kampung tok senik: Amazing place to stay in mountain!

By occassion we found this place when we went there simply for massage , we decided to move there to spend our last night .The feeling is very different from seaside, it's such a quiet place. You feel nothing but relax!

The chalet is very Malasian style, two bed room with one living room. The swimming pool is very nice.If u don't want to have meal inside hotel, you can walk out , there is a local Malaysian restaurant right outside the main entrance, the food is very good , you can eat well with RM10!
If you stay longer time there, suggest you to rent a car, you can stay half day at seaside and half day in the hotel, full day will be a bit boring!

AWANA PORTO MALAI LANGKAWI: See the sunrise

We love staying at the AWANA PORTO MALAI LANGKAWI. The thing I enjoy the most is getting up and going out on our balcony to see the sun rising up behind some other islands. It is like a movie with every second a different frame. Awana Porto Malai is on the southwestern tip of Langkawi. Every room has a small kittchenette with a coffee pot, microwave oven, and a sink.

There is no pool but be sure and ask for a sea view room. Just make sure it isn't near the bar or the band will keep you awake all night. There is an island nearby where they will take you for free that has a very nice beach.

Renaissance Hotel: Within the golden triangle

For our few days stay in Kuala Lumpur we chose to stay at the Renaissance Hotel because it was within walking distance of what we wanted to see. It is a very large hotel, so large it has two wings. Our room was on the 14th floor of the new world wing. It was a large room with a queensize bed, sofa, and chair. There was even a bouquet of fresh tropical flowers on the table when we arrived.

We had a very nice view of the large pool out of our window.
The food was what we remember most though. The buffet breakfast and dinner were fantastic. It was like two buffets also, one Asian and the other international. It was plentiful and very good.

Berjaya Hotel, Pulau Tikus, Penang: Near To Shopping And Good Food

Some hotels look big and impressive, but the service, as usual, is nothing to shout about.

Where's the smiling receptionist they show you in the brochures ?

Novotel Century Hotel: Best deal when you are mostly out and about.

Novotel Century is a 3 star hotel with many advantages.

It is located in the heart of KL's shopping and entertainment areas and within close proximity of the business district. The service was friendly, buffet breakfast was on the house, family rooms were interconnected (we had rented two).

Rooms had TV, minibar, tea, coffee and safe.

When we are traveling in foreign lands, we do not seek extraordinary facilties, because most of the time we are out and about. But Novotel's friendly service really impressed us.

The biggest advantage is that it is located on fun and frolic oriented Bukit Bentang road.

Most of the city attractions are only 5-6 Ringits on Taxy away. We walked up and down to China Town and Minara Kuala Lumpur at will.

RIHGA Miri Resort and Spa: #1 in my book of memories

The RIHGA Resort and Spa is now a Marriott. It is located on the Brighton beach facing the South China Sea. The hotel is surrounded by 20 acres of well kept gardens with beautiful blooming plants and many trees for shade. It is a short taxi ride to the airport or into Miri town from here.

I liked everything about this resort. It has a very nice pool. The view from the lobby out over the pool and sea is breathtaking. The rooms are fresh looking and very comfortable. The staff go out of their way to make sure that you enjoy your stay .
