Penang, Bangkok, Phuket, Bintan are usually the main destinations to pop in most locals mind. Ipoh has been under the rader till now...that is until it was awarded by Lonely Planet as one of the top ten destinations to visit in Asia.

2 Facilities for the family
Set in the ancient premises of the resort are modern amenities that cater for families. From the balcony, a 60-metre seahorse-shaped swimming pool greets you and beckons you to visit. With the boys' approval , we headed down to the pool as soon as we settled.
The 5 level infinity pool comprises of a jacuzzi, leisure pool, lap pool, children’s pool and wading pool. With the different kind of combinations, this pool is purposely built for everyone in the family.
600 meter track
