Family Friendly Hotels in Malaysia
1) Sunway Resort City, Selangor
One of the main attraction for those who comes to Kuala Lumpur is Sunway Lagoon, and that’s the reason why you have to stay in Sunway Resort City. Staying close to the Sunway Lagoon means you can bring your family there any time of the day. With six different theme parks, including the Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon Park, Sunway Lagoon is a great water park that also has some rides and animals.
There is also a shopping centre nearby should you need to shop for friends and relatives back home. You are also only 25 minutes away from the city centre, making it easy to explore KL if you want a break from the Sunway Lagoon area.

No better feeling than waking up to the views of lush greenery, the smell of the fresh air and the sounds of the forest in the morning. While you can spend the whole day with your kids at the theme park, or capturing your memories in photos, don’t forget to check out the hot springs! What a lovely remedy to end the day soaking in hot water in the middle of the greens.

Like probably many of you, I grew up playing Lego, trying to create different complex structures for hours. And if your kids are big fans of Lego, that’s all the more reason why Legoland Malaysia should be on your checklist. Even a non-Lego fan will be impressed by the Lego structures in this park.

All the attractions in the park are Lego-related, such as buildings, animals, people from the Lego edition. Some of these attractions are interactive and equipped with sound system, so you and your kids will have lots of fun discovering each one of them. You also have the chance to build Lego structures together with your kids.
Nestled in a lush secondary jungle, Bukit Gambang Resort City is an integrated resort with many tourist attractions. The resort offers a wide range of recreational and relaxation facilities for anyone in the family.
You should not miss their water theme park, which recently received Malaysia’s best water park award. The 45.8 acres water park is built in a dense jungle, allowing you to get close to nature while enjoying the ride. Besides the water theme park, Bukit Gambang Resort City also houses the largest safari park in Malaysia as well as an active academy where visitors can enjoy extreme outdoor activities.

Enjoy one of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see in your life! With the palm trees swaying, the wind blowing through your hair, and the waves crashing, watching the sunset at Tanjung Rhu Resort is bliss. You can hardly get this majestic view elsewhere, and that is why people flock to this northern island of Langkawi, Kedah, every now and then.
With the beauty of the beach on its backyard, the resort offers several activities that help you create beautiful memories with your family. Some popular ones are walking along the sandbar to the nearby islets at low tide and kayaking out to the islands nearby during high tide. Plus, the use of non-motorised sports is free! Moreover, there are 3 pools and a luxurious spa retreat to pamper yourself while the kids can enjoy themselves on the beach — collecting shells or building sandcastles.
There are plenty of family-friendly hotels to choose in Malaysia, and kids should never be an excuse not to delay your next vacation. It’s time to create as many memories with your family — so what are you waiting for?
