Homestay – The Regalia Studio In The Heart Of KL

At the point of writing this post, Visit Malaysia Year 2014 (#VMY2014) is just round the corner. With one year of welcoming tourist from all over the world, and not forgetting domestic tourism, Malaysia is gearing towards tourist  swarming into the country to catch the culture, nature, adventure and diversity of Malaysia and her hospitality dubbed as Malaysia Truly Asia.

Malaysia has abundance accommodation to present to visitors and tourist to cope with the high volume of tourist for #VMY2014. There are varied places to stay from 5 Star and Signature Hotels to Bed and Breakfast not to mention Homestays that had been promoted widely by the authority to get tourist and visitors close to what Malaysia has to offer in terms of her diversity and real life of Malaysia.

Homestays in Malaysia spread out mostly outside the hustle and bustle of city life to bring guest closer to real life of Malaysia. However for those who still want to stay in the city, there are homestays too within or around the city boundary. So do you want to enjoy a view like this from your Homestay?

RegaliaThen opt to stay at The Regalia Studio, a comfortable homestay within the heart of Kuala Lumpur city  and just next door to Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC). It also facilitate  easy access to public transport, the Rapid KL Light Rail Transit at PWTC station and Keretapi Tanah Melayu‘s Putera Komuter Station besides taxis and city buses.

With all the amenities and facilities provided what more can we ask for from a very comfortable Homestay at just RM150-RM200 a night. At that rate it might just be a budget or a 2 Star hotel with just a room and roof to lay your tired body after a hectic day in the city.

More photos of the homestay can be viewed HERE and their FACEBOOK.

WHY I WISH I CAN EXPERIENCE STAYING THERE

After looking at the photos and reading the experience of one guest  who had stayed at The Regalia, I am excited to bring along my family to stay a night or two to enjoy apartment living in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. I know I can’t afford to buy and own such property so, once in a while sharing the excitement from the opportunity given can be considered a worthwhile experience.  Not everyone can enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur city while chilling or soaking in an infinity swimming pool such at The Regalia.
