The Haven Resort Hotel & Residences
Another great weekend getaway is to head to Ipoh and check in to The Haven Resort Hotel & Residences where the seahorse-shaped pool will provide hours of entertainment. Surrounded by artificial rocky cliffs to blend into the natural surrounds, the pool actually comprises five distinct levels including a lap pool, leisure pool and a kids’ wading pool with a waterslide. The pool area is stroller-friendly, which is very handy when there are babies and toddlers involved. What truly sets this pool apart is the fact that it overlooks a natural lake and an amazing 200-million-year-old limestone formation, for which the area is known for, and which is great for photos. There aren’t many pools in the world that can boast of a view like that! Jalan Haven (Persiaran Lembah Perpaduan), Tambun, Ipoh, Perak (05 220 9000/www.thehavenresorts.com).
