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.
Now, let me give you a glimpse of what you can expect at this family-friendly resort with magnificent scenery! 😀

The suites consist of designer finishes with various sizes from 1-bedroom to 3+1 bedroom. The resort also boasts 8-level security, 5-star facilities, and 5-star operation by The Haven Premier.
We stayed in a 2+1 Bedroom Lakeview suite that comes with 3 bedrooms (1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Sofa Bed), living room, dining area, kitchenette, balcony and 2 bathrooms. It can accommodate up to 6 guests.
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.
Suite facilities include satellite channels, flat-screen TV, safety deposit box, toiletries, refrigerator, microwave, electric kettle, induction cooker, iron, hair-dryer, bath robes, mini bar, and complimentary high-speed WIFI.
