Review of Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri - A pocket-friendly, family-oriented accommodation for LEGOLAND lovers

Posted by ~Summer~ on October 05, 2017
in ,

We love going on holidays as a family. Yes, even though the adults are outnumbered by the kids and we have to keep our eyes peeled every step of the way, the hubby and I still take a family vacation whenever we can. The thing is, with the increased expenses now that we have more kids and the fact that we just shifted to a new home this year, we try to minimise our spending on holidays by avoiding peak periods, making use of bundled deals or promotions and visiting neighbouring countries instead of dreaming to set foot on other continents.

Now, one of our most visited places this year has to be Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Come on, it's so easy for us to get there by car and you see, as long as we bring along passports and go out of the country, it's always a fun holiday to the kids and I reckon they don't actually mind where we head to. I once read that instead of trying to visit as many different places in the world as possible, it's actually more recommended for young kids to have a recurring holiday spot year after year. It will be a place where they get accustomed and grow attached to in their growing up years, a place where they feel safe and familiar in, a place where they build the happiest of memories.

In today's post, I'll be sharing more about Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri, which was where we stayed in during our most recent trip to Johor. It is an affordable serviced apartment that is family-friendly, easy on the pocket and best of all, it is just a stone's throw from one of our favourite places on earth, LEGOLAND Malaysia. For those of you who are longing for a quick getaway with your family, I have a 2D1N package stay to give away too, so come join in!


INTRODUCTION

Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri is easily accessibly by car and it is located right across the road from Medini Mall. Boasting 33 storeys and 310 units, the tall building looks striking, stylish and welcoming, and you can hardly miss it. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was an underground carpark right below the building and best of all, it merely cost us RM10 to park our car there for three days. Yes, three long days! Even if you do drive out during your stay, as long as you keep the receipt, the vigilant security guards will allow you to re-enter the carpark. This was a total relief to my hubby, who has a fear of open air carparks and would prefer this safer option.

The fact that the carpark is underground meant that it was convenient and easy for us to move our luggage to the lobby where we could take a lift to the reception. The labelling on the lift panel was concise and it helped us to find our directions around easily too.


Here is how the spacious and comfy lounge looks like at the reception, where you can read the day's papers, use the computers, watch the TV and just sit back and relax while the staff helps you to check in.



For those who are more observant, yes, you might have spotted it! Standing in the background is none other than LEGOLAND Malaysia. We were so thrilled to be able to see it from where we stood at the reception and the kids couldn't wait to start their holiday. See? I wasn't kidding when I told you the apartment is very near the theme park, right?


ROOMS

Now, we've stayed in LEGOLAND Hotel a handful of times already (you can read my reviews here and here) and while we do love it to bits, we are also all for the notion of staying in an apartment. Why? Firstly, there is much for space for the kids to run about. Secondly, you get more toilets and maybe even a tub. Thirdly and most importantly, we love having a kitchen so that we can whip up simple, healthier meals for the kids.

There are four apartment types in Somerset Medini, namely:

Studio Premier
- 43 - 47sqm, comes with a king-sized bed, fits up to three guests (3rd guest is chargeable with an extra bed)

1-Bedroom Premier
- 58sqm, comes with a king-size bed, fits up to three guests (3rd guest is chargeable with an extra bed)

2-Bedroom Premier
- 70 - 80 sqm, comes with a king-size bed and two single beds, fits up to five guests (5th guest is chargeable with an extra bed)

3-Bedroom Premier
- 110sqm, comes with a king-size, queen-size bed and two single beds, fits up to seven guests (7th guest is chargeable with an extra bed)

We stayed in the 2-Bedroom Premier, which was more than enough to suffice for our needs and I have to say we are very happy with our apartment. I will take you on a short tour so that you can take a look for yourself too! First, here is a look at the floor plan and you can see that the serviced apartment comes with a living room, a dining area, a kitchen, two toilets, two bedrooms and a balcony. It is even bigger than the 3-room HDB flat which I grew up in all my life as a child and teenager so yes, I definitely think it has more than ample space for our family of five.
Now, let's take a look all around. This is the living room which has a 4-seater dining table area, carpeted floor, coffee table, air conditioner and the curtains can open up to reveal a small, private balcony. I was very pleased by the amount of natural light that came in when we first entered the apartment, which made everything feel bright and airy. And guess what? The living room was where we spent much of our time in the house, just idling on the sofa and snacking away while enjoying a good movie on the TV. Yup, that's one of the things I love to do most on a holiday.



The master bedroom comes with a king-size bed, working desk, TV, a 4-door wardrobe and a toilet with a bathtub!! Hip hip hooray! It does state that you need to turn on the water heater 30 minutes before usage but I don't think that will be of much issue, right? My kids miss playing in the tub together so you can imagine how convenient it was for me to put them in the tub while the hubby and I worked in the kitchen or just enjoy some couple time of our own. Oh and before I forget, all guests can enjoy complimentary Wi-Fi too and yes, it works even in the toilets, yay!



As for the other bedroom, it was supposed to come with two single beds but we realised that ours had a queen-size bed instead. Well, this was all the better for us as the girls could sleep together. If you are like us and have this habit of squeezing into one room to sleep at night when on holiday, then the good news is that this room is right next to the master bedroom and yes, even a queen-size mattress can fit into it nicely so everyone can sleep together if desired.



Last but not least, we have the kitchen which is fully equipped with an electric stove, kettle, a front load washer, a 2-door refrigerator, microwave and all the utensils that you need. Yes, this means you get to do the laundry (if you want) and cook whenever you want to! I'll share more about where we bought our groceries later on but I really loved that we had a huge fridge and a stove so we could even have suppers or a quick meal whenever we wanted.





AMENITIES

There are some amenities in Somerset Medini for guests to make use of and I have to say that while I wasn't expecting a lot, they turn out to be better than what I had imagined.

-> Swimming Pool

Firstly, check out the swimming pool with the overlooking view of LEGOLAND and the greenery in the garden below. It was just so inviting that despite us being out most of the day, we had to by hook or by crook find a chance to go for a dip!




It so happened that we were there at sunset so the gorgeous scenery became even more breath-taking as the sun warmed up the waters and our hearts too. If this isn't an awesome family holiday, what else is?





-> Kids Club

We were thrilled to find that that was a Kids Club located on the same floor as the swimming pool and even though it wasn't huge, it was the perfect hideout when the rain started to pour and kept the kids happy and entertained for an hour or so.



Inside the Kids Club, you can find a slide with a small climbing structure, a rocker and a LEGO table with some blocks to play with. There is also a sitting area where you can relax and watch TV while the kids played, though I would personally prefer to do that in the comfort of our room.



-> Gymnasium

For those who would like to work out and can find time to leave the kids, there is also a gym available on the same floor as the pool and Kids Club at Level 1. Note that this is not the same lift that you took from the carpark to get to the reception, you have to walk past the reception to get to this lift which brings you to the amenities and to the guestrooms too.





For those who would like a quick bite or drink after swimming or working out, there is also a couple of vending machines located near the lift lobby too.



-> Oasis Garden 

The Oasis Garden located at Level G is one of my favourite places to be in Somerset Medini. There was this sense of tranquility the moment I stepped in and this was one of the things I would look for, and cherish, when I'm on holiday. It is basically a garden with lots of lush greenery and waterfalls which allows you to come up close with nature for a moment before the hustle and bustle (note: theme park rides) start all over again.





I was there at the garden with just my two girls for a stroll and without the toddler, it meant that I had even more peace and just being with the two of them, taking in all the scenery and not forgetting to take some wefies too, that was a girls-only morning that I treasured very much.



DINING

Moving on to food, now this was the part that I felt that had plenty of room for improvement. We had our breakfasts in Somerset Medini and let's just that there wasn't much to boast of. Although it was communicated to all guests that this was a temporary holding while they worked on upgrading the breakfast hall, from what we were told, this had been going on for months and so you would expect the quality and variety of food to be a little more than what we got.





Still, at least we could fill our tummies enough to start off the day. Even though the food was somewhat bland, you do get to choose from a selection of cereal, bread and jam, fried kway teow and noodles, nasi lemak, congee, some cakes and fruits.

The consolation is that there was the egg station that served freshly cooked omelettes and sunny-side ups but the bad news is it wasn't opened every morning when we were there so you might just have to depend on your luck for that.





If you were to ask me, it might just be a better option to get your own breakfast or groceries on your way to the apartment so that you can opt out of the daily breakfast when you book the apartment and save the cost. What's more, you can cook a more wholesome, tastier meal in the comfort of your own kitchen, which provides you with everything you need. Yup, don't forget to bring some seasoning along too or you might have to end up buying them in the supermarket!




NEARBY PLACES OF INTEREST

That's all that we have to share on Somerset Medini itself but since I love to share more of our findings and experiences with you, here are some of the nearby places of interest that you can consider visiting during your stay. By the way, we have not been sponsored for any of the below so what I write is purely because of what I wanna share.

-> LEGOLAND Malaysia

We have visited LEGOLAND Malaysia over a dozen times and as its annual pass holders, we have been faithful supporters over the years! I still remember the very first LEGOLAND we visited was the original LEGOLAND in Billund (check out our experience and pics of the firstborn when she was just a toddler here). That was the first time I was mesmerized by the whole LEGOLAND experience and when LEGOLAND Malaysia opened 5 years ago, we were so very thankful to have this magical paradise for kids so near to our shore. Happy happy 5th anniversary, LEGOLAND!






Over the years, we've seen how it grew, with the addition of the water park, LEGOLAND hotel, the expansion of Miniland and the newest ride in the park is the NINJAGO ride which opened just last year. We were so thrilled to get to try it out and it has fast ascended to the top in our list of favourite rides! Yes, the girls simply love to "throw fireballs at the bad guys" and I must say it is so fun to work out those arms while bonding with the kids at the same time.





We also love to dip in the water and go on the rides at the water park, which is why a day at LEGOLAND is never enough for us! Actually, even two days might not be enough because my kids just love this place so, so much. I do recommend that you try to spend at least a night when you visit so that you can take it leisurely, enjoy each and every show or ride, focus on having fun without having to think about needing to beat the jam and rush to get home across the causeway by nightfall.





Oh, and we heard some very exciting news too! Come November, LEGOLAND will be releasing a new ride and creating a brand new experience with the world's first LEGO virtual reality roller coaster ride! We've never been on a VR ride so we are very excited about this new attraction - which combines cutting-edge VR technology with roller coaster thrills - that will definitely get our adrenaline pumping. It's going to replace one of our favourite rides, Project X, so we have really high hopes for this and can't wait to check it out this year end.


We've known of friends who would love to go to LEGOLAND for a family holiday but because of the high costs of staying in the hotel, they dismissed this idea. What I do hope is that they will now know that it is possible to have a more-than-just-one-day getaway in LEGOLAND and stay over in an apartment (located very near it) without having to spend as much. LEGOLAND Malaysia will for sure remain as one of our favourite destinations for a family holiday in the near future at least, that is, before our kids are all grown up!



-> Medini Mall

So if you cut across Oasis Garden, go down an escalator and cross a road, you will be in Medini Mall which is a stretch of shops and restaurants that will lead you right to LEGOLAND. If you prefer not to cook on a holiday, there are plenty of dining options here, including KFC, Burger King, Old Town White Coffee, The Chicken Rice Shop, Secret Recipe, Shihlin Taiwan Street Snacks, a Thai restaurant and so on. There is a 7-Eleven at Somerset Medini but if you need to top up your provision supplies, there is a handful of convenient stores here too and you can get items like snacks, bread, fresh milk, drinks, towels, swimwear and more.



We found this Fun Zone for kids (located on the right of Shilin Taiwan Street Snacks) which is basically a mini arcade with kiddy rides, claw machines and some marble ball games. You can get your tokens at the self-service changing machines (1 token cost RM1, the games cost either RM1 or RM2) and just start playing away! We spent hours here and I still can't believe that we caught a total of not one, not two but FIVE stuffed toys at the claw machines, two of which were surprisingly caught by the very lucky big girl. Woohoo!


-> Hello Kitty Town

If you are staying over for more than one night and have time to spend, I recommend that you take a drive to Puteri Harbour because you can easily spend a fun-filled day here with the little ones too. It was our second visit to Hello Kitty Town (read my review here) and even though I was skeptical if the soon-to-be 8-year-old will find it too childish or boring, it turned out that we still enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. So if you have little girls or if you are a fan of Hello Kitty, be sure to pay this place a visit too.



Don't miss out on the newest attraction, Kitty of Oz, which is a fun and cool game that uses smart electronic devices and requires players to complete four challenging activities before they can each receive a souvenir to bring home.


-> Thomas Town

If you have little boys and not girls, fret not! Thomas Town, which was previously Little Big, is located right below Hello Kitty Town. It was our first time here and the girls were thrilled to take up ballet classes with Angelina Ballerina and get a photo opportunity with Pingu the Penguin while the baby brother was ecstatic to see watch a live Barney show and give Bob the Builder a high five.



This place exceeded my expectations with the kiddy rides like bumper car, arcade games like Whac-the-mole and indoor play structures that come complete with balls and slides. Making our way here on a rainy day and getting a two-park pass was definitely worth it!



For instructions on how to get to Puteri Harbour, go here.

-> AEON Mall

It takes approximately 15-20 minutes to drive to AEON Mall from Somerset Medini and here, you can find a big supermarket where you can get your groceries, an A&W if you crave for root beer floats and curly fries, a cinema if you wish to watch a movie at only half of the cost in Singapore, a Toys 'R' Us, an outdoor playground and lots of kiddy rides if you need entertainment for the kids.



This was where we bought all our fresh food supplies and went back to the apartment to cook our dinner after that. There are also bakeries where you can get bread, cakes, pies or pastries for breakfast the next day too.



-> Restoran Chua Kee

We had dinner at this zi char place, thanks to recommendation from our in-laws (who took bus to meet us here just to eat together!) and I have to share it with you. It's located at Gelang Patah and takes you around 10-15 minutes to drive here by car. The roads are dark at night so do be careful along the journey but I assure you that once you find your way here, you will likely come back again and again next time.



Why? Because who can say no to cheap and fresh seafood and a good hearty meal, right? Between the 12 of us, we had FOUR big crabs, one huge promfret, fresh prawns, two soups and a tofu dish and the total bill came up to RM738, which according to my mum-in-law, is less than half of what you would pay in Singapore for the same spread and quality of food. So yeah, I think we will be definitely be coming back here again soon!



So yes, this is such a lengthy post but I believe in sharing what might come in useful for you one day. I think our recent experience in Somerset Medini and LEGOLAND were both so fantastic that the kids are already asking me when we can go again. Yup, recurring holiday spot, remember? I am quite sure that we will be back here very soon but for now, let's just keep it a secret from the kids, yeah?

  3. Oh Gosh now I know I have a better choice to go for as our family accommodation when we visit Legoland . Having 2 kids for our travel I always hope to find a nice spacious family apartment and I am Glad that Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri is just perfect cater to what we will want and love for. We love the King Size bed that we can have more space for our sleep with the 2 little ones. And plus with the bathtub that they can soak and play is just always what they are anticipating for . Great idea to have a nice infinity pool that how I wish I can just pack my luggage and bring them to head for this holiday.
    Been 2years since we last visit Legoland , but We love and hope to visit there again, cos we are big fan for Legos and the rides are so family friendly fun ! Able to sit together in the DUPLO EXPRESS as a family are so enjoyable and relaxing. Hope to win this to explore the new LEGO Ninjago Rides and the Waterpark that we had yet visited.
    Thanks so much!!

    The rooms are so spacious exactly what toddlers need for a staycation. Plus it's so near Legoland, a great alternative to Legoland hotel.

    We love Legoland for the toddler friendly rides. Just the right ones for my girls.

  9. When we travel, we like to stay in apartments so all our family members can be together and also more space for the kids to move about. Somerset Medini is a good choice for us. We just went to Legoland for the first time and the kids were absolutely thrilled! We didn’t have enough time to explore both parks. Hope to win this so we can go back again!

    It can be quite a challenge to find comfortable accommodation that can fits 3 adults and 4 kids (aged 5,4,2.5 yrs & 3.5 mths) all in 1 room. Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri will be a great choice for us: spacious, comfortable, convienient and most importantly, kids and family friendly.

    We have yet to visit LEGOLAND Malaysia and hope to win this to fulfil our plan to bring the family for a short family trip this Decemeber.

    What I always look out for when choosing a hotel is the space and layout of the hotel rooms! And I love the fact that Somerset Medini's rooms are very spacious for the children to run and play around in the rooms itself. Plus the toilet looks spacious and clean too! And most importantly it is near LEGOLAND! Would love to bring my boys there one day!

  14. The apartment looks so spacious and with 2 bedrooms mean the kids don't have to squeeze with hubby and I!
    Love how LEGOLAND is just a drive away and we can even do a day trip though as per your recommendation, 1 day is never enough!

    Sleeping arrangements rank high on my consideration whenever we travel. I love that the Somerset Medini's 2 bedroom suite has a king size bed and twin or queen beds because it is the perfect combination for my family of 5. As a stay home mum I have always found it difficult to dig into our pockets for a staycation (seems so extravagant!) as well as paying for theme parks where it seems only the children will enjoy and the adults are just accompanying them. Hence even though LEGOLAND Malaysia is just across the border, we have never visited. I bet if we get the chance to, the children will be exhilarated because the only time they have seen Lego in action is at home with the box of hand-me-down Duplos!

    What I love most about Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri is that it's family friendly. Hotel room is usually really small and you can't cook your own meal if children are not used to food over there.

    What I love most about LEGOLAND Malaysia? I don't know cause I have never been there before. My 5yo only been overseas once when she was 1yo? my 14mo only just collected his passport a few days back. �� but if I really need to pinpoint what I would love about LEGOLAND, it would be water park cause my 2 kids are water babies. They love playing in water!

  21. We have always stayed at Hotel Jen as a cheaper alternative to the Legoland hotel so it's wonderful learning more about other options! Love the kitchenette in the Somerset apartments which also allows privacy when families share one apartment.

    We would love to go for our annual Legoland getaway - since we havent done so this year. Its a place my boys love, and a themed park we return to every year.

    Hope to win!

  22. Thanks for the recommendation. It looks like fantastic place to stay and I am really impressed by the cozy feel of the apartment. Besides that, there are so many facilities to keep us entertained without even having to step out of the building. And the pool. I could see my parents chillaxing on the deck while the kids are splashing around the infinity pool! I would love to try the new Ninjago ride because it was not there the last time we went. But the kids will be more than happy to be back at the Legoland Driving School again!

    I would definitely try to arrange one for my folks and kids at home soon. The tse char will be my #1 item on the must- go list! With 3 kids and 4 adults, it is always a challenge to keep our expenses within the holiday budget for the whole family, I am really glad that you have shared this!

    Thank you.

    What a huge apartment and super family friendly! Will really love to win this so this Nov school holiday can bring my children for staycation! And what excite me is the underground carpark right below the building too! We are afraid of open carpark as well!! This is really a great choice! What's more for winning Legoland tickets! Kiddos always build their lego bricks at home. They can never think of going to a actual lego theme park! Had been wanting to bring them but the hotel there is really way out of our budget!
    Hope i can be lucky to win something for my kids and for our family bonding.

    Thank you for your lovely giveaway chance!

    I like Somerset Medini Iskandar because it has spacious rooms to accommodate our family and the amenities such as swimming pool, Kids Club and gymnasium accommodates parents and children. Legoland Malaysia has cool structures which both my boys adore and they are such Lego fans! They will be happy to spend a day or two exploring the place and participating in the various activities!

  26. I am planning for a trip to Legoland and Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri was my consideration of accommodation. After reading this blog, I'm even more convinced that I should choose this for my family of 4 together with our parents to stay in a 3-bedroom Premier. It's great to know how near it is to Legoland. My 6yr old has been wanting to go Legoland again and I'm sure my 20mth-old boy would have a great time in LEGOLAND Malaysia as he loves to stack the lego at home!

  29. I love the location of Somerset Medini serviced residence which is so near to Legoland. I love how kids' friendly the hotel is and my 2 preschooler kids would have a whale of time at the kids' club. We would have a fantastic splashing fun time at the swimming pool. The cosy,warm ambience and cleanliness of the hotel entices me too.
    We would spend quality and fun bonding time at Legoland, enjoying the adventurous and fun rides. This will definately be a fulfilling and memorable stayacation and getaway.😊

  38. I like the fact that Somerset Medini is so close to LEGOLAND & the price of booking a service apartment is much cheaper than staying at LEGOLAND hotel. And it's just 15-20 minutes away from AEON mall where we can buy fresh foods to prepare meals for my little boy as he's still taking home cooked food at 18 months old.

    Have always heard how fun this place is for the kids, I really hope to win this giveaway & bring my family there!!

  50. Love the Oasis Garden concept, a nice touch that helps one relax, cools the surroundings and freshens the air. I envisage that my son could just plonk himself there all day and stare at the waterfall!

    Legoland is the place where we can face your fears, live your dreams and have an adventure of your lifetime! The children love the Build and Test area most where they can experiment, improvise and race their vehicles with other children.

It's going to be the perfect definition of "The perfect holiday" if I got chosen. I've been dreaming to have a relaxation eversince I had my 1st child, that's like 4 yrs ago. Cause being a SAHM of 2 is exhausting, this might be my much awaited peace. Haha!
    As for Legoland, a holiday at JB wouldn't be complete without a visit at it's No.1 tourist attraction. What I love about Legoland, you asked? EVERYTHING! 😍♥️

  59. We love the idea that Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri is just a stone's throw from Legoland! We've stayed at Legoland Hotel before and while it was great, I would have enjoyed a slightly quieter place to recuperate from the high energy days at Legoland!

    We absolutely love Legoland. Our kids are at the perfect ages for Legoland! Legoland is the perfect size for our family - not too big and intimidating for us not to be able to complete everything, yet not too small with insufficient rides and activities. It's where even us as adults can let go and really enjoy ourselves!

    Adora wants to win this, pretty please!

  60. What I love most about the Somerset Medini is that it is so near Legoland and that it has the facilities that we need for a perfect holiday. We love staying in an apartment because then there is more space for the kids to move around and they will have their own bedroom too. And Somerset is so family friendly, with the Kids Club and all other facilities catered for the little ones.

    As for Legoland Malaysia, we love it to bits, even every bricks! :-) We went there last August for the first time. But since we didn't have a car, we took the SBS bus from Singapore to Malaysia and then the bus from Larkin Terminal to Legoland. It was a total of 4 hour trip to Legoland and by the time we got to Legoland, the kids were tired and we didn't have time to go to the Waterpark eventhough we have combo tickets :-( But the short time we were there, we get to enojoy most of the kid friendly rides and the adults really admired the miniatures :-) We joined and danced in the Brick Parade and had a photo opportunity with the Starwars cast. We also took the train around the park and spent most of the time in the Medieval section where the kids enjoyed the mechanical horse ride. Oh, if only we had more time to explore. Hoping to win so we can go back and do all the fun things we missed out the last time. It will be an advanced birthday gift for the kids to who will be celebrating their birthdays in January :-)

I do not have to worry abt squeezing my family of 4 in one room and there’s even a washing machine to wash the dirty clothes from a day of fun!
    Legoland is of course a fantastic land, not only for the kids but also the adults. Personally I had been to Legoland and always enjoyed myself with the train rides, boat ride, water fun splashing activities, shows, roller coaster rides! Would definitely love to return back and have an awesome time with my kids and I!

    I've never been to Lego land but I'm amazed by the huge park and how it accommodated different themes like Hello Kitty and Thomas! And I want to try out the LEGO virtual reality roller coaster ride too! Have never try a VR ride before.

    Legoland is our favourite family bonding place and it holds many precious memories of us there. Our favourite ride is Aquazone Wave Racers and we missed that ride so much! Hope to revisit the place and recreate new memories ��

Swimming pool and kids club is perfect exercise for my child to swim and refresh in the morning before we head to Legoland.

    2) We never been to LEGOLAND Malaysia because of the expensive entrance ticket and really appreciate that Summer mummy can give us this opportunity to have family vacation in Legoland.

  84. Hi! My name is Aina Hamdzah and email is aina.nur@gmail.com

    I like that the Somerset Medini rooms are spacious so that my kids of 4.5 yo and an 8mths have plenty of space to roll around, explore and play. It is also appropriate to have a kitchenette so that means breakfast is settled in the comfort of the room. My husband is not an early riser and on most holiday trips, i end up eating buffet breakfast alone with the kids! Imagine the chaos and a hungry mother.
    If i win, i plan to bring my parents along and they will definitely appreciate the Oasis Garden and can foresee them taking morning and evening strolls in the garden.

    I have never had the chance to bring my kids to Legoland before although i've heard alot about it being fun! I showed the photos to my eldest boy and he smiled in delight and asked me so many questions!

    Thank you for the giveaway and the generous information and review on the nearby facilities and places as it helps to manage expectations for Legoland and Iskandar Puteri go-ers ������

    My kids always mention that they want to visit Legoland again after our 1st visit on 2015. Legoland definitely creates a happy long lasting memory to my kids. Their most favourite ride is to drive their own lego car and the Ninjago show. We also fond of the small details in the park that made of Lego bricks. We would really love to visit Legoland again and making a happy memories as a family :).

  98. Somerset Medini apartment layout looks very spacious with awesome amenities and will be best for families travelling with kids. Its location is a huge plus point as it's so close to LEGOLAND and so many eaterys! I have never been to LEGOLAND though I have been wanting to bring my kids there. My boy has 7 sets of duplo lego! Hope to win this giveaway!

    I love Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri because they have a variety of room for choosing. As parents travelling with 2 teenagers, we prefer to choose an apartment whereby the entire family can stay close together, rather than 2 hotel rooms so that we can spend quality time together. So an apartment is definitely a wise choice. The proximity to LEGOLAND Malaysia makes Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri more attractive.

    Though my family have not been to LEGOLAND Malaysia, I can't find a reason not to love or look forward to visiting LEGOLAND Malaysia with so many thrilling roller coaster rides.

    My boy has just completed his PSLE last week and we would definitely look forward to winning this accommodation and a fun filled school holiday at LEGOLAND Malaysia.

  100. With 3 kids and 2 adults, Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri is definitely the perfect place for us to stay over. Normal hotel room is too small for us with papa always have to sleep on the couch (is there is any). Some occasion, poor papa even had to sleep on the floor. Thank you A Happy Mun for this awesome giveaway, my family will be very happy if win this as December is also my 2 daughters birthday month. Legoland is perfect choice for our family. Family and kids friendly environment. So with Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri with just stone throw away distance, this will definitely be our perfect holiday getaway.

    I like Somerset Medini Islander Puteri because it's very near from Legoland and the rooms are also very large, being able to accommodate a family of four, being just nice for us.

    It has all the amenities (swimming pools, a kitchen), that we would most appreciate.

    Whereas for Legoland, we have always wanted to go there but due to time and budget constraints, we have been unable to up until now. This would be a great opportunity for us stay in Somerset Medini and fulfill a dream of going there.

    Somerset Medini offers bigger and self-catering apartments for my family of 4 adults and 1 toddler. It is near LegoLand, which has suitable rides for older toddlers. My toddler is reaching 120cm (soon) and will be tall enough for most of the rides- this means that I is time to plan a trip to Legoland soon!

    I love Somerset Medini for its spacious apartments that allow my children to roam about freely and I love LEGOLAND Malaysia for its countless LEGO-theme rides and activities that can keep my children engaged the whole day there!

    1) I have heard wonderful reviews about Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri from friends too. Comfortable apartment with great facilities, walking distance to nearby mall and Legoland. Will be thrilled to continue Part 2 of fun after Legoland with their pool and playground. Fuss-free if we opt to eat or cook in our apt after a long day with the spacious room!

    2) LEGOLAND Malaysia has always been my boys' favourite theme park! Always look forward for the next trip for family bonding time, endless fun and rides!

    I love staycation and short holiday trips because they are god send to people with little ones. The kids get to stay in a hotel, believe they are in a new land, jump on and mess up the bed, sleep and bunk in with daddy and mommy, play and swim anytime they want, enjoy all the different wide variety of food at buffets. It's even better for full time working parents like us that we don't have to take extra leave days for staycation and still get to enjoy and rejuvenates! Somerset Medini Iskandar Puteri looks like a perfect choice for such staycation trip and it will be our first time to Legoland! So much fun awaits!
