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

Food Discovery – Star Chef Seafood Restaurant @ Gelang Patah

We explored the small town of Gelang Patah for food hunting and this was a trip that we truly relished. Hopping onto a cab, we had no idea what to eat and where to go. Eventually we settled at this eatery by the name of Star Chef Seafood Restaurant.

We reached Star Chef Seafood Restaurant for our dinner. As you can see, this restaurant is open concept and has no air-con.

Nevermind that it has no aircon, although we heard some protest from Small M initially.

Enough introduction of Star Chef Seafood Restaurant. Nothing beats knowing how good their dishes are. Our stomachs are limited, but our appetite is big! This was what we ordered.

Here’s a glimpse of the price list.

Tea – RM $6.

Guessed this was only gripe as we saw a dead red ant on the pot so we didn’t let the kids drink.

Others – RM $9
