Desa Damai Chalet, Pengkalan Balak

As we were unable to travel far because of the lockdown in Selangor. Also, my children miss the beach at Pengkalan Balak. Combined with us having 2 days to spare. I arranged an outing there. As we never stay at the same place twice. The only time we broke that rule was at the Legoland Resort Johor. But that place was special. The last time we stayed at the Kampung Pinang Sebatang Chalet. From there I discovered four little chalets in a little compound. Called Desa Damai Chalet.

Desa Damai Chalet comprise of 4 wooden style chalet. The design of each chalet is of the Traditional Melaka House. Every chalet has a queen bed, coffee making facilities, standing shower with heated water and TV with local channels. I could attach my mobile phone utilizing my Basues USB HUB docking station. So we could watch Netflix. These days TV channels is never an issue when we travel. As long as the TV have HDMI slots. For the young boys we rented a mattress at only RM30.

Coffee Making Station

For dinner we headed to our favourite spot D’Ribut where serve yummy Prawn Char Kway Teow topped with 4 big prawns. Both days lunch we had at the Mak Jah shop just on the beach after the entrance of Pengkalan Balak. We ate and ate. Food at Pengkalan Balak was really nice.

My Verdict

A decent spot to have family get-togethers. In the event that you have four families, you have the entire spot to yourselves. They even rent out BBQ pits at just RM30. As the chalets is fenced up with just a little door, my children were allowed to wander around. My girl had fun playing with two little kittens there. Room was quite clean and also the surrounding. They even served breakfast for two with plain tea in morning for breakfast.

Legoland Malaysia Resort, Johor. Revisit

My second visit to this amazing resort. Stayed here before in 2016. That time we stayed in the Pirate Themed room. My two young boys had a great time then. Came back again this time cause my little girl was a baby the last time we stayed here. She was grumbling that, she never experienced staying in Legoland Hotel. This was after seeing the family photo of our holiday at Legoland Malaysia Resort.Disclosure: This page contains affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, we earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

So this time we took, a Kingdom Room for my little princess. As normal it was a comfortable and amazing stay. Service was excellent as usual. Staff were friendly and took extra effort to make the kids happy. Check in and out was fast. There is a huge area in the lobby to keep the children busy with Lego bricks. Kept my children occupied during our stay. So we spend very little time in the room. This time around there was a magic show in the lobby.

The room was spotless, beds were comfortable. The room and washroom was decorated with lego figures and the wallpaper to suit the kingdom theme. The bed with a roll away bed at the base could sleep 3 children. There is a children sink which my princess adored brushing her teeth. This time there were kids amenities too like little room sleepers and children toothbrush. My three kids rushed to find the clues with information to open the safe which had little presents for them.

KIDS AMENITIES

Food was nice. We had their BBQ on the first night. Nice varieties of colourful desserts. For the next day dinner, we walked out to Medini mall and had dinner at the Oldtown Cafe. There is lots of food outlets at the Medini Mall to choose from. There’s KFC, Burger King, a Thai Restaurant, Pizza Hut and more. Now there is even a grocer there. There ia even an ATM machine at the Mall. Breakfast at the Brick Family Restaurant spread was awesome. But it was a bit crowded and noisy. Can’t expect much, after all this is a family resort.

Don’t worry about the check out time. Cause the resort will validate the parking ticket that allows you to go out anytime after you check out. And you could either store your luggage at the concierge counter. Thats what we did, check out at 10.30am. Left our luggage at the concierge. Went again for another round at the theme park and the Sealife Malaysia. Then only left the area at 3pm.

My Verdict.

Great experience. Although its quite expensive but recommended at least once. Staff are really courteous and friendly. Kids were kept occupied with lots of lego blocks around the lobby. Overall a good vacation and the kids had lots of fun. All in all, we all enjoyed ourselves. As in all my reviews. Don’t listen to the moaners. Try this place at least once and you will not regret it.

My Hotel Review Imperial Hotel Melaka

Chose this place due to its location. The location was very strategic as it was in the middle of town. We have atayed in Hatten Melaka before. Which was nice. But chose this place for the reason that it had a family room. So my kids could sleep comfortably and the room was bigger.
The Heritage Melaka is located in between the Equatorial Hotel and the Hatten Hotel. Its just across the road to Dataran Pahlawan and other historical places. So food will not be an issue. Only issue I found here is the parking. Its quite small. I suppose there is not enough parking cause cars are parked on the ramp. Which makes it hard to drive up or down. Especially of you are driving a big car.
Our room was on the 6th floor. Lifts are small and always full. On occasions we had to use the staircase down. Its was quite difficult with kids in the tow.
Room was clean but showing signs of neglect. The television also had limited channels and our television was not very clear. Another signs of aging.

 

Breakfast was served at the 3rd from 7.00am till 10.00am. I feel its too early to close especially as most people like to wake up late for the holidays. Food is ok. Nothing spectacular.

 
My Verdict
This hotel has a great location but the management need to look into details to make the stay better. Alot of itema in room was not working. Noticed that they were doing some sort of renovation on the 3rd floor. So I suppose they are trying to improve this place. Hope for the better.

Grand Lexis Port Dickson

A Review of Grand Lexis PD




Grand Lexis Port Dickson which was formerly known as The Legend International Water Homes is located at the end of Tanjung Gemok beach. The landmark to look out for is Glory Beach Resort. Glory Beach Resort is easy to notice because its three high raise building looking more like apartments. Grand Lexis is located just after Glory Beach Resort.
Grand Lexis Garden wingThis unique resort offers 3 room types. There is the Water Villas which is on stilts in the sea, Sky Pool Villas which is located in the hotel block, and Garden Villas which is designed like residential houses. My other half prefers the Garden Villas; she says it has that homely feeling. The unique aspect of this resort apart from its large rooms is that each room has its own swimming pool. It’s not a very large pool but large enough for a small family to enjoy. Anytime you feel like swimming, just dive in your very own private pool. You can watch your kids swimming from the comfort of your bedroom which overlooks the pool. Just a note the private pool is 4ft deep, so you need to pay careful attention to your kids. So imagine this resort has over 300 swimming, I’ve heard its listed in the Malaysian Book of Records as the hotel with the most swimming pools. Well if you are looking for a beach holiday then don’t choose this place cause there is absolutely no beach. The nearest beach is next door at Glory Beach Resort but as the waterways are used by barges and ships, the beach is dirty most of the time.
There are games and activities available around the hotel to cater to the needs of all ages. You can purchase the activity passport which cost about RM68 per booklet. It is basically a booklet of voucher that can be used anytime for the activities around the resort that includes segway, archery, table tennis, cycling, game tokens, wii games and many more. There are also discount vouchers for the F&B Outlets and free cake and coffee in the booklet. It’s such a good value if you intend to do some activities and you are staying for more than three days.

It’s a recommended place that you can stay with your families, also for new married couples.

An Outing in Historical Melaka

Historical Part of Melaka

There are a lot new things comimg up in Melaka. You can always find something new to see and do here. So this Awal Muharam holiday, we went on a trip to the Historical part of Melaka. As it was raining, we couldn”t walk around. We opt to visit places that had shade.

Melaka Maritime Museum

The Melaka Maritime Museum is actually a replica of a Portuguese ship named “Flor De La Mar”. In the museum, you can get a closer look at Malacca Maritime history from the Malay Sultanate of the 14th century to the Portuguese era, the Dutch era and the British era. There are also little replicas of ships that once came to Melaka during its heydays. My suggestion is to avoid public holidays or weekends as the museum is quite small and get a litle hot stuffy when there’s a large crowd.


There are lots of models of ships that have stopped over in Melaka.

Melaka River Cruise

Melaka River was where it all began. It was the meeting point for traders from the east and west. A few years ago the state government embarked on an effort to beautify the river. Their effort was great for tourism as now you can take a river cruise. What used to be unsightly kitchens or toilets of the houses along the river, now is beautiful buildings and little cafes. There are lots to see along this 45minute cruise. You can take the cruise from the jetty next to the Maritime Museum or from Taman Rempah in Pengkalan Rama.



When you Travel at Malaysia, you will sure to find new things. Cause Malaysia has lot to offer.
