Family Staycation at Traders Hotel Puteri Harbour Johor, Malaysia

When you have little ones waking up happy, you know your staycation was truly enjoyed and loved by them. That’s what we did at Traders Hotel Puteri Harbour at Johor Malaysia. It was our first family trip with Zara and they girls enjoyed their hotel stay with Ayra calling it our home.

With four adults and two toddlers, we opted to go with a connecting room so we can all be together during our 2D1N stay at the hotel. Having the two girls going around the rooms excitedly checking out every corners of the rooms was enough for us to say it was money well spent.


The harbour view deluxe room

Both the rooms come with spacious bathroom with bath tub. The fittings and features of the two bathrooms were slightly different with more premium features like the TOTO washlet which I super love. The last time I used something similar was in Tokyo many many years back. Both the little ones loved the bathtub most as they spent a long time playing in there together on both days. Ayra didn’t want to get out! I think she had more fun in the bathtub as compared to our trip to Legoland.

The pool and jacuzzi just above our rooms was super nice. Sadly we didn’t have time to get in for a dip during our stay. At least the girls got to chill a little on the deck chairs.

The hotel is highly recommended by a few of our friends who had been to Johor and I must say Traders Hotel Puteri Harbour did not disappoint. The room, the facilities and the sumptuous breakfast buffet spread were awesome. Ayra was quite sad when we had to check-out of the hotel. She said “Goodbye home.” before we closed the room door; too funny this girl. We hope to return one day for another family staycation.

Babymoon Staycation at The Quincy Hotel Singapore

Our staycation at The Quincy Hotel must be one of our favorites. It’s like a home away from home, with their all inclusive weekend stay which came with all 3 meals during your stay with them! We loved it and enjoyed the modern chic room with comfortable bed!

Here are all the reasons why we enjoyed so much during our staycation at The Quincy Hotel…

Love #1 – The chic room, comfy King size bed and in-room amenities

King Size Bed with very comfy mattress and comforter

Complimentary Mini Bar! Just stretch out your hand anytime to grab a drink. Love it!

Everything in here are complimentary too! Lays chips I like!

This was the first that caught my eyes when I entered the room. Next time I should bring PS3 or DVDs to watch! Ultimate pig-out staycation!

Don’t remember seeing complimentary copies of magazine in a hotel room before. This is the first! Nice touch Quincy!

Lovely shampoo and shower amenities in the toilet! From Molten Brown

Love #2 – Full board staycation

Buffet Breakfast included

Set Lunch included too!

Set dinner! All three meals included in the package! How cool is that!

Set lunch and dinner comes with free-flow salad, soup, drinks, juices, coffee, tea and biscuits for nibbles.

Set dinner thats filling and satisfying. It tastes better than it looks!

Besides three meals, there’s also free-flow coffee or tea and a free fall zone aka Ice cream with strawberry or chocolate sauce for topping! Love this! I had like three cups during my stay that weekend! Great chilling off in this hot weather. Complimentary cocktail is also served daily from 6pm to 8pm at the restaurant. Think free flow beer, wine, liquor, mixer and more! Drink drank drunk anyone?

Love #3 – Hotel facilities and things we get to do

Lovely pool on the 12th floor. Floats are for Saturday’s movie night use! Don’t miss this unique experience while you’re at the hotel!

The hotel gym is very well equipped and its accessible 24-hrs! This is only one side of it. More muscle toning machines on the other end!

Sweat it out in the sauna room

Or get a steam bath! Great for clearing off the stress from a day’s work

There’s lockers too on the 12th floor. Great for pre/post check-in guests.

Overall we loved this relaxing and no-frill all-inclusive staycation at The Quincy Hotel Singapore. Reading again about this now makes me want to go back there again soon, wonder if they’ve made any new improvements to their hotel.
