Hotel Review: Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani

JenjalanKami is so excited to have our second trip to Sungai Petani! Read our first experience in Sungai Petani here.

This time around, we’re going to see what’s all the buzz about at Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani. Let’s check it out!

1. Nice view of the pools

Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani is located in Sungai Petani, a town in Kuala Muda District, Kedah. Whilst most of our other hotel reviews have sea views (oh yes, we’re beach lovers), the view from our room is satisfactory.

We had pool views! And it’s nice to see some greeneries around the hotel as well.

Don’t forget to bring your camera to the poolside at night! Who knows you’ll be able to capture some stunning shots. We particularly love this angle!

2. Behold the beauty of the Junior Suite

You may want to remember this room number. This is the Junior Suite that we stayed during the trip… And we love it!

Upon entrance, you will see a mirrored cupboard on your right, and a big cupboard on your left. You definitely can bring another guest in this suite, and still have loads of places to put your things!

Now you see, we haven’t entered the bedroom area yet – but the space was very large! It’s large enough that our toddler decided not to sit down and explore the whole area. There’s a living room with TV at one end, and a study table at the other end. We decided to put an extra bed for Shafa’s mom in the middle between these two areas.

Just beside the living room is the dressing table. Perfect, because Shafa’s mom loves using dressing table to put on makeup. Shafa rarely use it – she doesn’t wear makeup!

The toilet is separate from the shower room – so no need to fight if you need to use the toilet NOW!

And this is the bedroom… The cupboard that you see immediately when you enter the room is connected to the shower room, which you will see again in below pictures. There’s also a low shelf near the window of the bedroom to put your extra things.

And the shower room was great – it has Jacuzzi! Our toddler definitely had loads of fun bathing in there. He didn’t want to come out!

And beside the Jacuzzi is the cupboard, which was connected to the bedroom. The bathrobes are in there, so it’s really handy!

Watch the above video, recorded live on Facebook, to have a better view and feel of the Junior Suite!

3. Breakfast with a view

Who wouldn’t want to have this? Having your breakfast with a great view of the swimming pool. Probably let your kids have their fun at the swimming pool while you’re enjoying your own sweet time with your favourite food. Of course, your parental eyes will always want to look at your kids whereabouts – so this is definitely the place where you want to be if you’re not a water person!

And we definitely love the view of the egg counter… So full of greeneries! Watch the above video uploaded on Instagram to have a look of the live cooking there. The video is pretty shaky, though. Our toddler was not cooperating!

There’s a Roti Jala counter just beside the egg counter. We were quite frustrated that the Roti Jala was finished on our first day of breakfast (which means it must’ve tasted really good), but definitely happy when it’s available on our second day of breakfast! Watch below video for the full look and feel.

4. Tasty lunch and desserts

As family travellers, we know firsthand how unpredictable kids, especially toddlers, can be. They can get tired after pool time, and doze off in your arms just when you’re about to leave for lunch. Like this particular guy!

So it’s pretty convenient to just have lunch at the hotel. And we did just that! It was a great decision – turns out the hotel serves great lunch and desserts! Check out our previous post on food review at Garden Terrace, Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani.

5. Don’t forget to have your dinner at Hotmas restaurant

We know, the picture of the restaurant wasn’t that amazing. But believe us, the food was great!

After having a frustrating dinner during our first night at a restaurant nearby the hotel, we decided to try Hotmas during our second night, thanks to the reviews that Yusof had read online. It’s just a 4-minute walk from the hotel to the restaurant!

It was a great experience. They serve big portions at an affordable price. And the best thing is, the service was quite fast for that amount of crowd. Kudos!

So what’s your view after reading the full stay review at Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani? We’d love to hear your thoughts!

Food Review: Garden Terrace, Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani

JenjalanKami is excited to share our next food review on lunch menu at Garden Terrace in Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani, located in Kedah!

If you have been following this blog closely, you would have known that we have previously reviewed another cafe in Sungai Petani for their Ayam Gebuk Lunch Set. So, what makes Garden Terrace different? Read on to find out!

1. Be prepared for the ‘tower’ of Ais Kacang

Seriously, it’s a tower! We struggled to finish this, even with a family of 3 adults & 1 child (OK maybe because the adults are small eaters, and the child was sleeping).

Our toddler was in his own sweet dreams, so it was up to us to finish the Ais Kacang! Luckily it tasted so good, even Shafa’s mom was really excited digging in (watch below video)!

Thank you, Ibu! And we’re really glad you enjoyed it.

2. Perfectly breaded Fish & Chip

Well, don’t ask who ordered this. Shafa is THE fish fan in the family, so it’s definitely hers. She’s trying to make our toddler a fish fan too.

Unfortunately, our toddler fell asleep, which left Shafa alone to finish those BIG breaded fillets of fish… And she happily ate them. It was served with french fries, creamy coleslaw and tartar sauce. Delicious!

3. Crunchy Chicken Chop

Shafa’s mom ordered Chicken Chop. It was really crunchy! This is actually the chef’s specialty, and served with french fries and vegetables. You can choose to have it with either mushroom sauce or black pepper sauce. She wasn’t really a chicken fan, but the fact that she’s eating a big portion of it was a good sign!

4. Creamy Cream Of Mushroom

We ordered the Cream Of Mushroom for our toddler, but we ended up finishing them ourselves as he fell asleep. The soup was creamy, and served with garlic bread. You can never go wrong ordering this for your toddler anywhere!

5. Choices of pasta selections

Pasta lovers, worry not. For Garden Terrace got you covered! They offered spaghetti with a selection of aglio olio, napolitana or spaghetti bolognaise (Yusof’s choice). He ate them without talking much, to the very last bite. Must be pretty impressive!

6. From healthy drinks to the sugary ones

As much as we would love to promote the healthy drinks, we were guilty as charged to order the sugary ones! Our choices of Cold Tea and Cold Coffee were perfect to quench our thirst.

Of course, they also have a wide variety of beverages from hot and cold drinks to freshly squeezed juices, carbonated drinks, milk shakes and healthy drinks! By healthy drinks, we mean Pegaga Juice, Cucumber Juice and Tomato Juice. Awesome, right?

So, what do you think of all the food & beverages here at Garden Terrace in Swiss-Inn Sungai Petani? We’d love to hear your thoughts!
