A’Famosa Re­sort

Jalan Ke­mus, Sim­pang Em­pat, Alor Ga­jah (06 552 0888 / www.afamosa.com). Not a place to visit without the chil­dren, that’s for sure. Par­ents with a low ‘camp’ thresh­old may want to pop a re­lax­ant be­fore ven­tur­ing here, or the sheer campi­ness of it all will have you run­ning for the exit. Kids will love the Old West and its cheery but faux cow­boys and In­di­ans as well as the kid-ori­ented Wa­ter Theme Park. Lower your ex­pec­ta­tions and call ahead be­fore you book to check that all at­trac­tions are open as there al­ways seems to be some sort of ren­o­va­tions go­ing on.

Hol­i­day Inn Malacca

Jalan Syed Ab­dul Aziz (06 285 9000/ www.hol­i­dayinn.com/me­laka). Lo­cated on the stylish water­front of the Straits of Malacca, Hol­i­day Inn is a mere ten­minute walk from the city’s fa­mous his­tor­i­cal sites, mak­ing it a con­ve­nient place for par­ents with kids to re­side. If the younger ones tire of sight­see­ing, let them take a dip in the child­friendly in­fin­ity pool or the steam room. In ad­di­tion to a ‘kids stay and eat free’ pol­icy, the ho­tel pro­vides free shut­tle ser­vices.
