When I was invited to stay at Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri (Somerset Medini) serviced residence under The Ascott Limited, I pondered if my comfort and experience would be similar as to what I was accustomed to at a five star hotel! To my surprise, Somerset Medini exceeded my expectations right from the check-in process to its facilities. The Reception / Residence Lounge is vast and one can help themselves to a welcome drink as you wait and if you have some urgent work, make use of the PC there and the Guest Service officers (GS) are happy to assist you to print any important documents.
As I had my family in tow, I was given a Two-Bedroom Premier room on the 30th Floor which can only be accessed by a room key card for added security overlooking LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort (LMR). This 33-storey residence has 310 units comprising of studios, one, two and three bedroom apartments. The décor is contemporary and easy on the eyes and each unit is pretty spacious and has a fully equipped kitchen, a separate dining area, and an en suite bathroom with towels and toiletries.
For larger families or even corporate clients looking for comfort and convenience, I’d suggest going for the two or three-bedroom units that comes with a washing machine cum dryer, microwave oven and even a toaster. For long stay, it is feasible with all these facilities and there are cutleries provided and all you need is to get some grocery from the nearby grocer inside Mall of Medini and you’re all set!
After a short rest, I checked out the property with Danial who was eager to show me around. We headed to Level 1 where facilities such as the outdoor swimming pool and a children’s wading pool was located as well as a fully-equipped gymnasium, children’s playroom cum outdoor kid’s mini golf course. For a Zen feel we headed to Level G where an Oasis Garden is situated which also makes as an appealing short cut to walk across to LMR which is just a stone’s throw away. I’d also like to add that Somerset Medini has their very own herbs garden where guests are allowed to take some of these herbs for their cooking needs. How sustainable is that!
As Somerset Medini provides complimentary shuttle drop-off services to Puteri Harbour, Sunway Citrine, Mydin Mall and AEON Bukit Indah, we decided to take advantage of this and enjoy a night without driving around.
The next morning, my son had a hand at the mini golf and we went for a swim before heading to the Ground floor to Awesome Fast Food Café for breakfast. Guests with complimentary breakfast included may head to this café for a continental breakfast which includes juices, salad, yoghurt, fruits, cereals, bread and pastries as well as basic local favourites such as Nasi Lemak, Congee porridge and Fried Mee Hoon with side dishes. End your breakfast with a cuppa’ tea or coffee and you’re all set to kick start your day.
As my stay was the LEGOLAND Package, my family and I embarked on a short walk across to the theme park and the SEA Life Malaysia for an edutainment and fun day out.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay and I would definitely love to come back again for a relaxing getaway – home and away. Basic Room & Breakfast rate starts from RM230+ onwards and for those interested in availing the LEGOLAND Package @3 days & 2 nights, the rate starts from RM798+ i.e. RM399+ per night (inclusive of 1 Day Single Entry of LEGOLAND Combo Ticket of Theme Park + Sea Life for two persons).
