8 Toddler-Friendly Hotels For Your Staycation In Klang Valley (And Beyond!)


Have Halal Will Travel  •  Aug 16, 2020


This article about kid-friendly hotels in Klang Valley is contributed by one of our readers, Erlina. Some parts of the article may have been edited for length and clarity.  I have 2 kids. Before Covid-19, we would go for staycations once every 2 months. We usually look for long weekends during our birthday/anniversary months. However, we usually avoid long school holidays due to the price surge and too packed accommodation. For all the hotels that I've listed here, all toddlers get to stay for free. If you're looking for special perks for birthdays or celebrations, they are usually available upon request and at a fee. Do note that due to COVID, some hotels did not allow celebrations to take place. Note: I usually book online, hence the prices below are based on online rates. Walk-in prices may differ.
1. Grand Hyatt KL

If you are willing to indulge, this is the best hotel for you. Their rooms are spacious and they can help you to baby-proof your room too! They have this complimentary menu called Missing Must-Haves which includes Baby Shampoo/Oil/Powder and Kids slippers. Not to mention, the vast outdoor leisure pool and kids pool too will be more than sufficient to enjoy your quality family time. The food here is obtained through Halal certified suppliers but they do not display the Halal certification since they serve alcoholic beverages at the restaurants. Rate: RM448++ Book your stay here!

2. Putrajaya Marriott Hotel
Slightly further from the heart of Kuala Lumpur, this resort-style hotel has everything a toddler could ask for. A huge swimming pool with a slide at the kids’ pool, a Kiddies World where toddlers can use up all their energy after dining in at one of their five (5) multi-cuisine restaurants; including the mouthwatering dessert at the d’Oracle Lounge.
