Palm Tree Hotel (Permas Jaya)

As our children gets older, a king bedded or twin bedded room no longer meet our needs and we have been searching for Triple or Family rooms that fits our budget. Whenever we travel across the border, we try to stay in different hotels and explore other alternatives that suit our needs in terms of location, comfort, pricing and safety.

While it is more convenient to stay around KSL where there are more shopping malls. eateries and closer to the causeway, the price is also slightly higher due to it's prime location. Hence, we decided to settle our accommodation within Permas Jaya which is about 15 minutes drive from Woodlands checkpoint. In addition, there are shops, banks, restaurants and cafes in the area and a little night life which makes the district more attractive.

Palm Tree Hotel is located strategically within Permas Jaya 10 where many cafes and restaurants are nearby. While there is a security guard stationed from 8pm to 8am to keep a look out for the cars, it is to our dismay that the hotel does not provide free parking lots for its guests. Instead, they will assist to place parking coupon on the vehicle and we make payments for the coupons later.

We managed to book a Family room at a promotional rate of RM168 per night (Usual rate: RM188). It comes with 1 queen bed and 2 single beds which is perfect for our family of 4. The children do not need to squeeze and we can have a better night rest!

Another unique plus point about this room is it came with 2 attached bathrooms! There is one bathroom at each end of the room. We do not have to fight for toilets and were able to get ourselves ready more efficiently!

Toilet and shower rooms are clean and the water jets from the shower head is strong. The only problem is one of the toilet door knob was damaged, but it did not cause a lot of inconvenience.

Our kids are happy to have their own bed for the night. :) They did not waste any time logging on to the internet tapping on to the hotel's complimentary Wifi.

View from our bedroom window where we get to see the sun rise. In the night, we can hear live band from One Two Eat Cafe (opposite the hotel). The canto music did not bother us a lot and we were able to have a restful night.

Throughout our stay, we felt safe as an electronic key card needs to be available in order to access the lift and the rooms. The bedding and extra toilet is a bonus and definitely suitable for bigger families. Overall it has been a pleasant night stay at Palm Tree Hotel.

It's great that hotels have more family rooms now! Though my kids will always just squeeze into my bed when they get the chance!

Wow that's really a good price! With the exchange rate, it's extremely attractive to visit JB nowadays. And the good food??!

Many boutique hotels in JB have family rooms and they are at an affordable price. The adults finally got space for a good night sleep :D

Phoebe said...

Cool! We also love to go on roadtrips too! I will be sharing more boutique hotels in JB :)

Phoebe said...

The price is a steal especially cos it is further away from KSL. But there are many good food around Permas Jaya too and not too far drive to Woodlands

We drove past this hotel before, but never thought I would ever consider staying there by the looks of its facade. I must say the interior looks a lot better than the exterior!
