Lost World Ho­tel

1 Per­siaran La­gun Sun­way 1, Sun­way City Ipoh (05 540 8888/www. sun­way­lost­world­of­tam­bun.com). Made up of 134 ho­tel rooms and 20 ser­viced apart­ments, Lost World Ho­tel is nes­tled among the cav­ernous hills of Tam­bun. Linked to the Lost World Of Tam­bun theme park and the Lost World Hot Springs where you can un­wind and soak in the nat­u­ral ther­a­peu­tic hot springs, the ho­tel is an ideal choice for fam­i­lies who plan on vis­it­ing the park. It’s also the first smoke-free ho­tel in Ipoh, thus pro­vid­ing a safe, child-friendly en­vi­ron­ment. Ex­pect ba­sic but clean rooms with no frills, but no lack of ne­ces­si­ties ei­ther.

The Roots Eco-Re­sort

Jalan Che­mor 10 ½, Tan­jung Rambu­tan, Ipoh (05 533 5411/www.roots­malaysia.com). The Roots isn’t your stan­dard five-star ho­tel get­away, but it does have a beau­ti­ful mar­ble pool, fruit or­chards and a shal­low river run­ning be­hind the re­sort. If you’ve been look­ing for a na­ture get­away full of ci­cadas and bird calls, Roots proves choice ac­com­mo­da­tion. The Tree­house was built to ac­com­mo­date a durian tree so its trunk stands as a cen­tral fea­ture of the build­ing. If your kids find it hard to tear their eyes away from the telly, they’ll be forced to do so here, as there aren’t any TVs in the rooms. Bring in­flat­able pool toys and card games to rein­tro­duce them to fun out­side vir­tual realms.
