Staying at Telaga Terrace Boutique Resort, Langkawi, Malaysia.

Stayed there for 4 nights in a deluxe room with family. The hotel is pretty good. The room size is decent- The washroom is very nice with skylight / sun light , plants and nice amenities-

The room size was pretty alright, and could adjust our family with 3 young children. We got an extra bed. Though the room was small but it adjusted the extra bed and the hotel also gave discount on the extra bed charges :)

The room came with a small fridge, tea and coffee making and daily bottled water.

Room at Telaga Terrace Resort, Langkawi, Malaysia

We were on a budget and our children were reluctant to sleep in a seperate room hence we stayed in a single room. It was alright considering that we were outdoors most of the time.

Estimated room price was US$ 70 / night including breakfast which was pretty decent considering the location, facilities and room size

The location was just a few minutes away from cenang beach - we had a rented car so it was not a problem reaching the beach anytime of the day.

The staff was always willing to help and always available.
The pool was 24 hours, however children pool was till 7 pm.

The hotel is exactly the same as in the pictures on their website and other hotel booking website.
The breakfast was quite decent with selection of meat, rice, noodles, malaysian dishes, juice with tea and coffee.

Staying At Somerset Ampang Kuala Lumpur, Serviced Apartment

I have stayed at somerset chain in Bangkok twice before and i had no hesitation in staying at Somerset chain in Kuala Lumpur. And i must say it was a great stay.

I booked a one bedroom apartment which was a decent size for our family with 3 young children. The apartment was exactly as shown on their website or on other hotel booking websites with dinning table for 4, kitchen with utensils and cooking facilities. A washing machine- 2 tvs (one in lounge and one in the bedroom)

It also had seperate wardrobe room which can also be used for luggage storage and hanging clothes, along with safe and ironing board.

Sitting Area / Lounge

Bathroom was decent size, with standing shower and also a bathtub with a full size window over looking the Kuala Lumpur skyline. ( though i am not sure if it was see thru or not )

Washroom with Standing Shower and Bath Tub

Full Kitchen


The sofa/ couch and rug in the lounge was very comfortable and my wife wished we had a similar couch and rug back at home.

The roof top was with children pool , suana and a full size pool.
The rooftop also had a visitor lounge where you can just relax, read and sip coffee along with a children section.

Breakfast was decent with a selection of fruits and vegetables, noodles and rice, cereals, eggs, juices with tea and coffee.

Though the property is a few minutes walk towards the nearest mart and metro station (ampang park) - but that was alright - we knew this before booking and were pretty alright to walk a bit to the mart - Through out we used the "grab" car hailing to get our car at the door step , so location was not a problem either.

The nearest metro station was Ampang Park and many eateries including kfc, pizza hut, mc donald and other restaurants were around there. Also a money changer was also there at ampang park metro station along with some cheap shopping for shirts and other accessories at ampang park shopping mall.

The staff was courteous and helpful thru out- All in all it was a good and memorable stay for my family.

Hotel Stay at Park Avenue Clemenceau, Serviced Apartment Singapore

While planning my recent trip to singapore, I was looking for a serviced apartment to accommodate my family of 5. I know hotel and serviced apartments in Singapore can be really expensive and also the the room and apartment size is very small.

Singapore is one of the most expensive city and finding a quality hotel with in budget is really challenging.

I turned to all the famous hotel and apartment booking website and found Park Avenue Clemenceau to be of decent size, value and service. The reviews were mixed but what i was looking for was available and matched my search.

So I booked a one-bedroom apartment. The apartment was decent size when you consider it is in Singapore. Location was very close to clarke quay and taxi was always available at the gate. All the main attractions were very near to the hotel so the average taxi fare was from S$ 7 - 12 , apart from surge pricing which was usually implied in the evening.

The apartment was with full kitchen utilities and washing machine, iron and dinning table with chair. Sitting area was decent size and couch was very comfortable.

Housekeeping was every alternate day ( I knew this before booking , so no complaints about that)
Breakfast, though they do not mention any where, but it is included with the room and is served from 7 - 9 am only and no breakfast on Saturday and Sunday ( we also knew this before booking, so again no complains)

The bedroom was small and cozy but had a cupboard with drawers which was big enough to accommodate our clothes. The bedroom was decent with good linen, pillows and comforter.

However, breakfast was usually breads, noodles, cereals and tea / coffee . Since it was free , any variety was welcome.

Super store and mall was just next door of the hotel so any thing you require was easily available.

Considering the room size, facilities, amenities and price, this was a very good hotel and my family really enjoyed staying here.

It was central and just walking distance to the night life and attractions. It was quiet and peaceful and while the apartment was around commercial and residential complex but it was not crowded and was peaceful around.

Singapore itself is a peaceful city and my family enjoyed the stay at Park Avenue Clemenceau.
