7 KIDS-FRIENDLY HOTELS IN MALAYSIA THAT YOUR FAMILY WILL LOVE

Are you ready kids? Aye Aye Captain!

As ‘kids’ and ‘play’ go hand in hand, it is no surprise that kids-friendly hotels are usually located within the vicinity of amusement or theme parks. However, there are also a number of hotels that take it up a notch and create their own mini ‘theme parks’, right within their premises. As we usher in the end-of-year school holidays before we welcome the year 2020, we’re pretty sure you’re looking for that rewarding holiday or that sweet escape for your whole family – before the same routine begins again!

We have covered our top picks for the best theme parks here,
so
this time let’s zoom in on the hotels that can best accommodate you and your
children’s needs as we enter the holiday season right here in Malaysia.

1. Sunway Resort Spa, Selangor

Armed with a series of awards and accolades, Sunway Lagoon Theme Park is arguably the best theme park in Malaysia, boasting a variety of attractions namely Water Park, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park, Scream Park Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon.

To cater for travellers from near and far, Sunway has 3 different
hotels that are located within walking distance from the theme park, one of
which is Sunway Lagoon Hotel Spa, where you can play all day and then
retire to the fabulous rooms come night time.

This 5-star hotel is ideal for the whole family not only because
it is located next to the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park, it also has a connection to
the Sunway Pyramid Mall which is one
of the premier shopping malls in Malaysia. What’s more, Sunway hotels are always
offering great deals for family packages such as this Family Fun Package, which
is valid until year end.

If you’re looking for more than the theme park and the swimming
pool, you can just walk to the Sunway Pyramid Mall and bring your kids to skate
at the Sunway Pyramid Ice, one of
the favourite hotspots for the young and the young at heart. It is a
world-class skating rink with an open view where you can skate for fun, or even
join the skating programmes available.

2. The Andaman, Langkawi

Unlike the hyper commercialised theme parks and the lure of
digitalised gaming, the Andaman takes a different spin to define itself as one
of the best kids-friendly hotels, and that is to invite guests and their
children to be one with nature. Flanked
by the 10 million-year-old rainforest, Datai Bay with an 8,000-year-old coral
reef, far away from the hustle and bustle of city life lies the Andaman, a
resort that dedicates itself to the conservation of the coral reef that was
damaged by the tsunami in 2004.

Aside from providing the amenities for families with children such
as the family-friendly swimming pool with wading pool for toddlers, baby cots,
connecting rooms and babysitting services, The Andaman offers unique activities
for both kids and adults which include the Private
Guided Snorkel, Coral Nursery Feeding
and Coral Reef Walks as part of their conservation efforts. There is
also the Marine Life Laboratory
where there are interactive presentations on marine life and guests are invited
to join lab activities like scrutinising minute marine life under the
microscope. The best part is – all of the activities above are free of charge!

One of the unique experiences that
Andaman has to offer is the Young Marine Biologists Programme, where
children aged 8 and above are given the golden opportunity to experience a day
in the life of a Marine Biologist. If you have budding marine biologists in
your midst, this programme is exclusively structured to give young talents the
right exposure into marine life at a fee of RM99 per child. As prior
reservation is required for participation, you are advised to get in touch with
the resort for more details.

On top of that, The Andaman also has a kids’ club, known as Young
Explorers’ Club where fun and educational activities are tailored to your kids.
You may also enjoy a number of water-related activities such as kayaking,
jet-skiing, sailing, snorkelling, boating and if you are keen to get closer to
nature, you can also enjoy hiking, biking or just walking through the nature
trail.

bricks like the themed rooms, themed lifts

-NINJAGO for your stay.

In addition to the swimming pool, LEGOLAND Hotel steps up their
game by inserting LEGO themes wherever possible, by providing interactive
activities for the kids like the puzzle to access their own LEGO treasure (available in all rooms),
featuring a special wall with 12,528
LEGO minifigures
and spreading out the buffet at the restaurant with its
organised LEGO chaos.

Your kids will be entertained with the daily activities scheduled
such as the Meet Greet, Magic Class and of course the Building projects which will help unleash
their creativity. LEGO bricks and Xbox 360 Kinect are also available at the
children’s play area if you can’t get enough play time during their scheduled
activities.

We are pretty sure a stay at the
Legoland Hotel is not complete without a visit to the theme park, so we would
recommend you to check out the special rates offered for the hotel and Legoland
Park Entry. While you are
in the area, check out the SEA Life
which is another great attraction for the kids. Expose your kids to ocean life
where 13,000 fishes and 120 types of species are on display in 11 different

Spooky travels this Halloween month

This October, why not experience the “darker” side of Malaysia in celebration of the Halloween month? Here’s a compilation of possible things to do and places to visit to get into the mood of the season. While some are fun and entertaining for the whole family, others are strictly for adults who can brave the thrills!

Fun runs: Those who want to get their feet moving can join several fun runs being organised this entire month all over the country. Most have a Halloween theme, so come dressed in your spookiest outfits and put on some fangs for a jolly good time.

  • Boo Night Run at Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) on 28 Oct. Enjoy a cool 5 km night run in this huge park with some ghostly (but friendly) characters to motivate you along the way. Website: http://bigshowasia.com/
  • Halloween Fun Run in Kota Kinabalu on 28 Oct. Run along the coastal highway of Likas Bay and don’t forget to put on some ghostly make-up to scare your competitors away! Website: https://www.facebook.com/halloweenrunkk/
  • Zombie Urban Run at Metropolitan Square, Kepong, on 28 Oct. This morning run over a distance of 4 km will take participants around the picturesque park and lake. Website: https://www.facebook.com/fanatic4event2u/

 

Theme parks: Malaysia’s theme parks are putting on some serious fangs to frighten the daylights out of visitors.

  • Over at Sunway Lagoon, the “Nights of Frights,” now in its 5th year of celebration, is only for the brave (seriously, only those 12 and above are allowed in). Get ready to feel the fear as you explore their eight haunted houses, five scare zones, 11 thrill rides and four stage shows. Website: sunwaylagoon.com/nof5.
  • For kid-friendly Halloween celebrations, head on over to Legoland where they’re putting together some new shows this October. Catch the Brick-Most-FearShow, where Mr. Lord Vampire, The Green Witch and Frankenstein will share how they brought Frankenstein back to life! Expect lots of friendly Halloween characters doing a dance routine throughout the park, too, and join in the Brick-Ka-Boo parade. Website: legoland.com.my.
  • Another family-friendly Halloween treat is in store over at Perak’s Lost World of Tambun. Dare you enter the Spooky Halloween House of Dolls with its nightly show of “Dolls Alive” where cute and cuddly toys come “alive”? If not, just stick to the usual trick or treating around the park and collect various candies and goodies. Website: https://sunwaylostworldoftambun.com

Night tours: After you’re done exploring Malaysia by day, why not experience Malaysia by night? Night tours of some of Malaysia’s popular tourist attractions will shed new light on your appreciation of what they offer.

  • The Penang War Museum has been listed as one of Asia’s top 10 haunted sites by the National Geographic Channel. If it gives you the creeps in the day time, imagine the goosebumps you’ll get in this two-hour guided tour. Explore this old British defence fortress built in the 1930s, which later served as a prisoner of war camp after the Japanese invasion in 1941, and learn the historical facts along the way. Website: facebook.com/PenangWarMuseum/
  • For many years Kellie’s Castle, located in Batu Gajah, Perak, was left in ruins before it was turned into a tourist attraction. Today, after some sprucing up, visitors can learn all about the gift that Scottish planter William Kellie Smith gave his wife in the early 1900s. Numerous tragedies and bad luck struck the family and delayed the construction of the mansion, but all these tales will be revealed as visitors explore the corridors, halls and dungeons of Kellie’s Castle after sunset. Website: https://www.facebook.com/kelliescastleofficial/

On a lighter note, get to know your ghosts and ghouls at the Penang Ghost Museum in a fun and interactive way. Horror enthusiasts will love comparing Western and Asian ghosts here such as the Dracula, mummy, Orang Minyak (literally means oily man in Malay), pontianak (female vampire), Tuyul (known as Toyol), Pocong (a living corpse in a burial shroud), Chinese vampires (jiangshi), and Onryo (a Japanese spirit).
