New kids-themed hotel opens in JB

MALAYSIA - There is a new kids-themed hotel in Johor Bahru, and it just opened on Friday.

The Legoland Hotel opened its doors on Nov 29, ahead of its scheduled opening date in December.

Guests can choose from 249 uniquely-themed bedrooms with brightly-coloured Lego features that also extend to play areas and restaurants.

Children will be delighted to check out the display at check-in which is made of 12,528 Lego Minifigures.

Other kid-friendly features include quirky-themed elevators, 'exploding' toy boxes, treasure trails, and even 'dragons'.

Facilities include the Bricks Family Restaurant, Gourmet Bricks, Skyline Bar and Patio Lounge, a swimming pool; and rooms include a king-sized bed for parents and a separate sleeping area for up to three children, complete with a bunk bed, a pull-out trundle bed and an entertainment unit.

There are four different room categories, ranging from Themed Rooms, Premium Rooms, Deluxe Rooms to Suite Rooms.

Legoland's pint-sized guests can stretch their imaginations by playing Pirate, command a Kingdom or embark on an Adventure, plus hunt for clues in the room to crack the code on a locked treasure chest.

Room rates start from RM400++ (S$156) and package prices are also available, said Legoland Malaysia in a statement.
