5 Reasons Why You Should Stay @ Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour

Strategic location in the theme park zone is definitely among the factors to let down your hair and fully enjoy the atmosphere of luxury accommodation at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, an upscale hotel which lends a touch of modern, minimalist settings. This is the first time for us having a staycation in this elegant hotel. We truly enjoyed every single moment here and here are the 5 reasons why Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour should be your preferred choice of stay:

Reason 1: Contemporary & Refreshing

Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour is formerly known as Traders Hotel Puteri Harbour.This re-branding is to cater to a new “Jeneration” of independently minded business and leisure travellers. We arrived at the hotel and went straight to check in. The process was seamless and hotel staff was all smiles and served us well. We received our room key but we wanted to explore the lobby first.

A nice touch by the hotel to offer complimentary fruit-infused waters. The kids were fascinated when colours and juices come together. They kept helping themselves to the complimentary juices.

The hotel understands the importance of staying connected. Hotel guests can expect to receive free WiFi everywhere and we are honest to say the signal is really strong! iMac desktop stations are placed at the lobby for guests to use.

It is a plus to find convenient mobile charging stations at various points such as the the lobby, harbour cafe, gym and the Sky Bar for guests to charge their mobiles.

Reason 2: Rooms Are Spacious and New

Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour has 283 guestrooms with a choice of eight room types ranging from a 33sqm Deluxe Room to the 96sqm Speciality Suite. We stayed in the 33 sqm Deluxe Room and were contented that it was spacious and everything looked new.

We were surprised that the hotel did not place any tissue box in the room for guests to use.

Nothing thrills the kids more than having a TV and indulged in Disney channel.

We were upgraded to a Deluxe room with harbour view and we loved it!

We received a pleasant surprised from the hotel.

The kids are very fond of bath tubs and they were disappointed not to find one in our room.

Reason 3: Infinity Pool & Sky Bar

One of the higlights of our stay is the infinity pool. The kids had heard about it and can’t wait to take the plunge into the pool.

Swimming pool will certainly strike a chord with hotel guests. What’s more when there is an infinity pool? We spent a whole 2 hours soaking in the waters.

Feeling hungry after swimming? Take a little bite with orders from the Sky Bar.

Reason 4: Sumptuous Breakfast

We had breakfast buffet spread at the Harbour Cafe.

The buffet spread was sumptuous. Our appetite was huge but too bad, we could only eat that much as we were really full by then.

Our favourite egg station.

Muffins, waffles, pancakes, breads, donuts and various types of pastries spread to choose from.

Nasi Lemak but no chicken wings.

Curry laksa.

Reason 5: Nearby Entertainment

Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour provides free shuttle service to and fro for hotel guests to Legoland Malaysia. You can read our previous blogs on Legoland Malaysia Water Park here and Theme Park here.

Sanrio Hello Kitty Town is just 1 min walk from Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour.

LEGOLAND Malaysia (Part 1) – Water Park Review

This came as a surprise to us. Just as the school holidays were about to end, we were all joy when we received an invitation by LEGOLAND Malaysia to join in their Christmas Holiday Extravaganza. We were definitely game for it as a look in Google Map shows that LEGOLAND Malaysia it’s just a mere 18km from Tuas Checkpoint. To sweeten our road experience, the customs was relatively smooth and we hit our destination without any glitch.
