Ber­jaya Times Square Ho­tel

1 Jalan Imbi, KL (03 2117 8000/ www.ber­jaya­ho­tel.com/kualalumpur). An amuse­ment park down­stairs is a pretty good ar­gu­ment for bring­ing your fam­ily to stay at Ber­jaya Times Square. But we know a few more: namely, a su­perb and very cen­tral lo­ca­tion; huge, spa­cious rooms de­signed with com­fort in mind; ded­i­cated kids’ menus; and a se­ri­ously im­pres­sive pool flanked by smaller kid­die-sized pools. Stay in the 2-Bed­room Deluxe room with its kitch­enette and sep­a­rate rooms for Mum and Dad and the kids, or go for the more stylish 2-Bed­room Suite which of­fers the same ameni­ties with a more open plan de­sign. The lat­ter room deal also in­cludes a qui­eter, more pri­vate break­fast ex­pe­ri­ence at 7 Av­enue. Both rooms of­fer the op­tions of an ex­tra bed or crib upon re­quest. Ask the ho­tel about their fam­ily pack­age deals which in­clude en­trance into Ber­jaya Times Square Theme Park.

Prince Ho­tel & Res­i­dence KL

4 Jalan Con­lay, KL (03 2170 8888/ www.prince­hotelkl.com). With spa­cious rooms and an ex­cel­lent kids’ club, this ho­tel and res­i­dence is also very con­ve­niently lo­cated be­side Pav­il­ion shop­ping mall and not far from KLCC ei­ther. The kids’ club is open Mon­day to Satur­day from 9am to 5pm. With Plays­ta­tions, play equip­ment, ca­ble TV (with the Dis­ney chan­nel of course) and reg­u­lar sched­uled ed­u­ca­tional ac­tiv­i­ties, the club will quickly be­come your lit­tle trav­eller’s favourite hang­out. For longer stays and those who want more space (or ac­cess to use­ful ameni­ties like mi­crowaves or the wash­ing ma­chines on the tenth floor), there are ser­viced apart­ments avail­able too.

Pull­man Putrajaya

2 Jalan P5/5, Precinct 5, Putrajaya (03 8890 0000/www.pull­man­pu­tra­jaya.com). A short drive from the air­port, Pull­man Putrajaya is a good choice for long lay­overs. Of course, its stun­ning ar­chi­tec­ture by the lake and quiet sur­round­ings are plus points too. For younger chil­dren, there’s a pool, a mini play­room, a kids’ club; all the boxes are ticked. Older kids will like the games room with foos­ball, a pool ta­ble, ta­ble ten­nis and board games. If you have a con­sole ad­dict on your hands, there’s also a Wii room.

Sun­way Re­sort Ho­tel & Spa

Per­siaran La­goon, Ban­dar Sun­way, PJ (03 7492 8000/www.sun­way­ho­tels.com). The com­bi­na­tion of ho­tel, mall and theme park is pretty much foolproof, in our hum­ble opin­ion. The ho­tel’s swim­ming pool has a mar­vel­lous man-made wa­ter­fall while the adjacent Sun­way La­goon theme park fea­tures at­trac­tions like the world’s largest man-made surf beach and thrilling wa­ter rides in its Wa­ter Park. There’s also an Ex­treme Park, Wildlife Park, Amuse­ment Park and Scream Park. Tired yet? The ad­join­ing mall also has a skat­ing rink, archery range, bowl­ing al­ley, cin­ema, ar­cade and more. You’ll never hear com­plaints of bore­dom ever again.
