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.

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.

Tanjung Bidara Beach Resort

Tanjung Bidara Beach Resort is situated at Tanjung Bidara Beach about 10 km away from the town of Mesjid Tanah and 35 km from Malacca City. One can access the resort from Malacca City through Sungai Udang or from the North South Highway exit at Alor Gajah. Drive along the Alor Gajah Highway towards Malacca City and turn right into Alor Gajah town. Then proceed towards Masjid Tanah and take the old trunk road towards the South. There’s a sign board to turn right towards Tanjung Bidara. The resort is managed by IIUM Resorts Sdn. Bhd.
I had stayed at the resort a few times and everytime I arrive, the place gets no better than my previous visit. Too bad the maintenance is poor but I have no choice because I have some business in the Terendak Camp, a stone’s throw away from Resort.
There is a small swimming pool together with children’s pool. The bad management of the resort is only compensated by the beach nearby. The coffee house too is not much better than the stalls nearby and the price of food does not fit the price. I and my family had no choice of breakfast and three plate of simple fried rice, iced lemon tea, iced milo and black coffee costs RM 26.00. I regreted having breakfast at the coffee house after finding out that the stall next door is open.on the whole my evaluation the resort does not need any commendation. In fact it is worse than any budget hotel. IIUM Resorts management should look into reviving the resort in order not to tarnish the image of Tanjung Bidara and her nice beaches.

Visit Malaysia 2007

Year 2007 is visit malaysia year. As a citizen of Malaysia I want to play my role. All citizens of the world – come and see Malaysia. Experience her lush green forest, her beautiful beaches, her countryside breathtaking views. Go to the hills, climb Mount Kinabalu. Dive in Sipadan. Swim with the fishes in Redang and Perhentian.

Malaysia can be a gateway for travellers going East or West. North of her is Thailand. South is Singapore. Travel to Indonesia, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand. Go east to Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Japan. You can do it all from Kuala Lumpur.
