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. In ad­di­tion to Ber­jaya Times Square’s su­perb, cen­tral lo­ca­tion, the ho­tel boasts of huge, spa­cious rooms, a well-thought out kids’ menu, and a se­ri­ously im­pres­sive pool flanked by smaller kid­die-sized pools. Stay in the 2-Bed­room Deluxe room with a kitch­enette and sep­a­rate rooms, so Mum and Dad can have some time alone from the kids. Oth­er­wise, opt for the stylish 2-Bed­room Suite, which of­fers the same ameni­ties, but comes with a more open plan. The lat­ter also in­cludes a 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 to Ber­jaya Times Square Theme Park or the Fam­ily Es­capade Desa Wa­ter Park. Book a month ahead and en­joy up to 30 per­cent off the usual rates.

Ho­tel Pull­man Kuala Lumpur City Cen­tre Ho­tel & Res­i­dences

4 Jalan Con­lay, KL (03 2170 8888/ www.pull­man­ho­tels.com). Be­sides its spa­cious rooms and ex­cel­lent kids’ club, this ho­tel and res­i­dence is con­ve­niently lo­cated right next to Pavil­ion shop­ping mall and a stone’s throw away from KLCC. The kids’ club (open ev­ery Mon­day to Satur­day from 9am to 5pm) is stocked with PlayS­ta­tions, ca­ble TV (there’s the Dis­ney chan­nel, of course) and plenty of toys. Any child bunk­ing in Mum and Dad’s room re­ceives free ac­com­mo­da­tion and break­fast. In­quire about ser­viced apart­ments if you’re keen on a longer stay, need more space or want ac­cess to use­ful ameni­ties such as mi­crowaves and wash­ing ma­chines.

Pull­man Pu­tra­jaya

2 Jalan P5/5, Precinct 5, Pu­tra­jaya (03 8890 0000/ www.pull­man­pu­tra­jaya.com). A short drive from the air­port, Pull­man Pu­tra­jaya is an ideal choice for long lay­overs. Its lo­ca­tion by the lake, stun­ning ar­chi­tec­ture and quiet sur­round­ings are plus points too. Younger chil­dren are bound to get ex­cited by the pool, the mini play­room and the kids’ club. Mean­while, older kids will en­joy the game room of­fer­ing foos­ball, pool, ta­ble ten­nis and board games. If you have a con­sole ad­dict on your hands, lead them to the Wii room. The ho­tel goes all out to keep your kids busy by sched­ul­ing a Fun & Games ses­sion ev­ery­day from 5pm-6pm; games in­clude the likes of cha­rades and tra­di­tional Malaysian games.
