The Haven Resort Hotel, Ipoh – All Suites: Family-Friendly Luxury Resort

The Haven Resort Hotel Ipoh is an award-winning five-star luxury resort hotel in Ipoh, set naturally by limestone hills, forests and lake. Located a stone’s throw away from Ipoh’s Sultan Azlan Shah Airport, it makes a perfect venue for a fun and relaxing escape.

With Malaysia’s proximity, attractive exchange rate, delicious food, and great shopping options, Singaporeans often travel across the causeway for short breaks. Malacca, Penang, KL, JB and Cameron Highlands are the popular destinations, but Ipoh is a true gem that many have yet to discover.

As some of you may have already know, I came from Ipoh. Last week, I went back to my hometown and I stayed at The Haven Resort Hotel Ipoh with my family. I had the most amazing vacation with my family (along with my parents, siblings, nieces and nephew). The Haven Resort Hotel Ipoh is certainly one of the MOST beautiful resorts I’ve ever stayed.

The moment we stepped into the suite, we were SO impressed with its spaciousness. It is approx. 1180 sq. ft. (obviously bigger than my own apartment!), very clean and well-maintained. The interior is modern, yet cosy and well-designed in terms of functionality.

I super loved the huge balcony that is facing the limestone hill, lake and their signature 5-level infinity pool. It runs the full length of the living and dining hall, perfect for enjoying the panoramic views and clear crisp mountain air.

Edison, on the other hand, was extremely thrilled with the huge bath tub! Plus, he was SO excited to have his own room too! Even the two bedrooms have great views of the resort’s lush greeneries. Complimentary breakfast is also provided.

Rockhaven, the 280-million-year-old limestone outcrop, greets visitors from every corner of the resort. Looking equally stunning in the day and at night, it’s certainly the centrepiece of the resort. No one can resist the natural pristine surroundings of the resort. Therefore, I’d say that this is truly the “wow factor” of the resort.
