Pulai Spring Resort , Johor Bahru

Hello folks,


Before I start travelling again next week, for 2 weeks, I feel that I should at least update all the hotels I have stayed this year....when I started this blog, I wanted to do a posting, after every hotel stay, but caught up with work, family blah blah blah blah.....

So, I went to this hotel on a job trip before, and even though I like the hotel when I first arrived, I left feeling very itchy....yes...I GOT THE BED BUGS !!!! It was so horrifying, kept scratching , at the hotel, in the transfer to the airport, on the plane and etc....I was so pissed off..... I must say it was an unfortunate incident. So happened that the bed / room I got was infected by bed bugs.....*sigh* 

Anyway, please have a look at the pictures below....place is quite nice...honestly, could you less bugs, but honestly........

Btw, I stayed at the 2nd category, which is the 01 Bedroom Suite 


The Resort for the weekend
Comes with a kitchenette but no cooking

They should have more sofas, I felt.

One and only sofa.....
Separate bedroom which is small but acceptable,and you can see the living hall from here.


Huge toilet


They have a movie place at the clubhouse, across the hotel's block but within the same resort !
This is how the movie theatre looks like :)

Kids' playroom in the clubhouse itself
That has this scary looking tree ??
Nice looking library for some quietness
One of the pools at the club house
Changing Room for the pool ~ If you can read, the sign says No Female allowed :p

And this one....no men allowed . :D :D :D

They do have a pool at the main hotel's complex...very nice looking as below :
The Pool at the Hotel itself

So apart from staying at the hotel and play Golf....I just had to go and look for the followings:

Drive like 8 minutes out of the resort to Tmn University, in front of the market, you would be able to eat the locals tea time favourite. Goreng Pisang and sambal kicap


If you go to Johor, you must eat Nasi Ambang ! Its rice with salted fish, fried long beans + tempe, some beef floss, curry chicken, fried noodles...all in one plate !


Healthy Deep Fried Spinach ???

 So .....do I like this resort ? Well, what I can say and give my 02 cents worth of thoughts as below :

  1. Definitely the only resort there is in Johor Bahru that fits the word resort.
  2. There is another resort nearby the airport, but I would think twice
  3. Rooms are spacious, especially for domestic market 
  4. A bit far from the town, but then, that's the beauty of it...you still get the quietness of a resort, but drive out 20 minutes, it is already the noisy city
  5. Could be full with Singaporeans especially during weekends
  6. Fit for all level of travellers, the MICE , for conventions, single travellers, golfers, family, honeymooners, serves all well
  7. Have a huge sports complex that can be used for hotel guests too
  8. The only thing that I don't really like is the service of the coffee house. While they really serve local food ( like salted fish with coconut to be eaten with glutinous rice i.e. pulut ) , the waitress / waitresses could be more attentive and since they do cater for the cheap charlie travel agent business, you may see that the quality is quite low in compare to the name they want to bring. 
  9. Don't come for breakfast early morning, do so after 8am, because the china groups they have from the travel agents would have their breakfasts early and you wouldn't like to be there....honestly. 
  10. Children would love this place........My children did :) 

Now, these are all my thoughts....you may like the place, or you may just don't.... but with the newly opened Legoland....perhaps you should give this hotel a try too.

Enjoy peeps !

xoxo
