Berjaya Times Square

We decided to try out the five-star hotel at Berjaya Times Square after the disappointing hotel in Berjaya Hills. We self-drove from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur which took about 4 to 5 hours with some traffic jam along the way.

This hotel is totally different from the one in Berjaya Hills and thumbs up for it!!

It's located just beside, in fact, it's linked to Berjaya Times Square. So all you have to do is to take a lift to the ground floor and walk out of a side door, and ta-da! You are ready for shopping at Berjaya Times Square.

Other than the location, we loved the room! It was spacious and clean. It's more like a suite than a hotel room. Okay, I shall save my words and let pictures explain themselves.

Picture took from the door leading to the bedroom.. Yes, you are right.. There's some decorations on the bed when we arrived! Pleasant surprise!

A closer look at the decoration.. It's rose petals made into a heart shape.. Love it..
There's also complimentary fruits…

Colmar Tropicale

Colmar Tropicale is a French-themed resort on Berjaya Hills, near Genting Highlands. The resort was designed according to the actual Colmar village in Alsace, France. It did give us a little bit of the 'Europe architecture' feel.





Well, the weather was cooling at around 22 degrees Celsius and the concept of the resort was interesting. But that's about it. 

It was quite touristy at the resort. You would find that the price of food and spa/massage services were quite expensive as compared to KL or JB or other cities of Malaysia. We have paid S$220 per person for the coach and hotel, only to find that the hotel was quite basic and not well maintained, the bed was creaking and we found insects in the washroom sink. 




We took a walk at the Botanical Gardens and Japanese Park. It was a nice walk but it got more chilly as the sun began to set. We were informed by the staff at the resort that there was a Japanese tea ceremony demonstration in a cottage in the Japanese Park, but we miss…
