Dinner at The Grill at Cocomo in @le.grandeur.palm.resort.johor . . . We had our grills at this open kitchen concept restaurant, located at the ground floor between the reception and the pool of the resort. . . It was a challenge to wait for the food, as our toddler was too excited with the open concept (and the pool nearby) 😂 So had to give him some entertainment while waiting for the main course. . . But the foods were great! We asked for our steak to be done medium rare – it was so tender and juicy! 😍 . . Where did you have your best grills so far? . . #JenjalanKami #palmresortjohor #LGPRJ #JohorHotels #legrandeur #visitmalaysia #living_hotels #malaysia #johor #senai #living_destinations #hotellife #luxuryhotel #hotelsandresorts #traveladdict #travelphotography #postcardsfromtheworld #awesomeplaces #placestogo #luxuryhotels #cityliving #travelpic #travel #familytravel

Our first dining experience at Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor was having dinner at The Grill at Cocomo. Located near the lobby, this open kitchen concept restaurant is a must-go to satisfy your western food crave. You can check out the above Instagram post for pictures of our food (and also the live cooking team)!

We have also uploaded a live video, as above, for you to have a feel of dining with your family at The Grill at Cocomo. Luckily our main course have arrived when the live video was recorded! As parents of an active toddler, we may say that it is quite a challenge to wait for food in an open kitchen concept restaurant, very stimulating for the inquisitive minds (our toddler was literally running around the area for as far as he can run). But we didn’t mind, as the food were perfect to fuel our almost-empty energy, especially the medium rare steak that Yusof had!

We had our breakfast at Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace a bit late the next morning, due to our toddler refused to sleep the night before (excuses, excuses). Check out the above live video to know what they serve for breakfast, how the breakfast area looks like, and the timing they serve the breakfast!

After breakfast, we went for a lengthy swimming pool play and then fuel up our tummy at the Fusion Restaurant in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. We must say, it’s one of the best Japanese food we’ve tasted so far! Play the above live video to have a look around the restaurant and know what we ordered for lunch.

Fusion Restaurant’s special menu on Saturdays: Chicken Porridge
The Chicken Porridge was tasty and approved by our toddler!
Shafa’s favourite: Sake Sashimi (Salmon)!
Unagi Maki (Rice Roll with Eel and Seaweed)
Yusof’s favourite: Tori Karage (Deep-fried Boneless Chicken)
Sake Sushi (Salmon)

The above are the pictures around the restaurant and the dishes that we tried. Our thoughts? Best Japanese dishes we’ve tasted so far! Not to mention the staff and restaurant manager were super friendly!

Dinner hours at Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace

Later that night we went to Ishwara Asian Brasserie & Terrace again for a buffet steamboat. The dinner is served from 6.30pm to 10.30pm. Watch below live video for the look and feel during the dinner!

We were happy to be spoiled with many choices of food! Below are some food that were available during the buffet steamboat dinner.

We thought the next day will a bit more relaxed as we didn’t have food reviews in our original plan, since it was our check out day. But then Fusion Restaurant Manager invited us for yet another lunch to try their Teppanyaki!

Introduction & some starting actions by Chef Izam

As most of you would have known, the best part of Teppanyaki is to watch the Chef’s live cooking in preparing your food from scratch, with amazing actions! We were really looking forward into it, but we also know how active our toddler is. Thus, upon check out, Yusof was the one who took the videos & pictures of Teppanyaki from start, and Shafa came halfway through when one of the meals were ready (because at least our toddler won’t have to wait for the food and more time can be spent at the table instead of chasing him around). So Shafa basically missed the above introduction by Chef Izam.

Chef Izam in action

Too bad Shafa missed most of the actions performed by Chef Izam, such as the one shown in above video. But she’s still lucky to catch some actions, though. Watch below live video that Shafa manage to take when she arrived!

We even manage to interview Chef Izam once he’s done preparing our dishes. He is such a friendly person, indeed!

And that wraps up our food review of restaurants in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. We must say it was a really great experience!

Note: The visit was before the COVID-19 virus takes in.

Resort Review: Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor

Hello everyone! We’ve been busy with many aspects of our life since our last travel, hence the delayed update. Shafa has been busy with homeschooling our toddler with so many development milestone to catch back then (which he has been progressing very well and even advanced at certain things)! Aside from that, she’s been busy with her freelancing jobs, which she had secured a number of clients since our last travel. Congrats to her!

JenjalanKami at Johor Premium Outlet

Anyhow, let’s quickly move to our next resort review, which is Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. It’s been our favourite resort since Shafa’s pregnancy years. One of the staffs even remembered we had patronage the resort once before, which was cool! As usual, we will stop by at Johor Premium Outlet (JPO) before reaching the resort. JPO is located about 11 minutes from Le Granduer, which is great for shopaholics!

Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor’s lobby area

Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor is a place that we will always come back again and again. We first visited the resort back when Shafa was pregnant, and it is amazingly convenient as you don’t have to go anywhere else to have fun (sometimes pregnant woman just don’t want to go anywhere). Now that we came back here with a toddler, we find it amazing place for family with small kids! We’ll share the details of what we think of the resort for family travellers below.

During our stay, we manage to try the resort’s Deluxe Suite. Play the above video to know more about the Deluxe Suite’s view and facilities!

We also manage to snap a few pictures inside the bedroom of our suite. Check out Shafa’s Instagram post above to see all the three pictures. We think it’s a beautiful room with warm lightings!

If you're a family traveller, this is the actual scenario you'll be facing during holidays 😂 . . Toddler climbing tables & stairs are normal. So keep your watchful motherly eyes on them at all times, even though on holiday ya! . . Our Deluxe Suite at @le.grandeur.palm.resort.johor was so big, our toddler had so much fun exploring! Manage to burn a lot of his energy by bedtime 😆 . . #JenjalanKami #palmresortjohor #LGPRJ #JohorHotels #legrandeur #visitmalaysia #living_hotels #malaysia #johor #senai #living_destinations #hotellife #luxuryhotel #hotelsandresorts #traveladdict #travelphotography #postcardsfromtheworld #awesomeplaces #placestogo #luxuryhotels #cityliving #travelpic #travel #familytravel

The whole suite is spacious and comfortable for families! But you may want to keep watchful eyes on your toddler for the stairs if you have an active climber and explorer like ours. Check out the above Instagram post for the pictures around the suite!

The best is definitely the view from the suite. So green! And you can even catch airplanes passing by, as it is located about three minutes from the Senai Airport! Check out the above Instagram post to see the view from the suite’s balcony.

Walking in Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor

And now, let’s have a tour around the resort! The above staircase that you see is our scenic walk towards the sports centre. You can ask to be transported by a buggy, but we just want to walk around the area with our toddler.

Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor bowling area

The sports centre is quite big, where they have quite a number of sports to play in the centre. They even have a second swimming pool here! But as usual, we choose to play bowling. You have no idea the struggles we had to go through to complete the game with a very inquisitive toddler.

Our toddler having fun at the pool!

We visited the swimming pool next morning after breakfast. There’s nothing quite like splashing in the swimming pool with winds blowing. Just play the above video to watch how happy our toddler was! Don’t worry, Yusof is nearby our toddler, just below the shades. Our toddler refused to be under the shade with him.

And so that ends our non-food review for Le Grandeur Palm Resort Johor. We totally love this resort, which made us came twice for visit! Stay tuned for the food updates for this resort in our upcoming blog post. Hint: Best food ever!
