Hotel Review: Hotel Casuarina @ Meru, Ipoh

We recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Casuarina in Meru Raya. The hotel is located in a quiet and serene area, away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, making it the perfect getaway for families looking for a peaceful retreat.

The happiest person throughout the trip 😄

The rooms at the hotel are spacious and well-appointed, with comfortable beds and all the amenities a family could need. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and always ready to assist with any requests or queries.

One of the standout features of the hotel is its mini library, which is a treasure trove of books for all ages. As a book lover herself, Shafa was thrilled to see such a well-curated selection of books. The cozy seating areas make it the perfect spot to curl up with a good book and spend a lazy afternoon. We appreciated the effort put into creating a space that promotes reading and education, and we can imagine families with children would also enjoy spending time in the library together.

Overall, we would highly recommend Hotel Casuarina to families looking for a comfortable and relaxing stay in Meru Raya. With its mini library, friendly staff, and great amenities, it’s the perfect place to unwind and recharge away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

And a great place for bonding time!

Resort Review: Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan

We recently stayed at the Swiss Garden Beach Resort Kuantan and had a wonderful experience. The resort is located right on the beach, which provides stunning views of the South China Sea. The staff were friendly and accommodating throughout my stay, and the facilities were well-maintained and clean.
