Puteri Resort, Ayer Keroh

I recently stayed at Puteri Resort for a meeting. It is located not far away from the Ayer Keroh toll plaza. Just turn into the Petronas gas station after the toll plaza and the resort is about 300m away.

The resort location is kind of in a secluded area, ideal for holding meetings and team building event rather than a family holiday or leisure stay while in Malacca.

The lobby area is huge with an open air concept. With such a spacious area, it has become a place to meet up among occupants here.

The Deluxe Room is rather big for a single occupancy. However, this resort is in the dire need of upgrading and refurbishment as most of the furniture here are as old as the resort itself. Internet line is poor here while using the resort's wifi as well as my own broadband connection.

Sometime the electronic door card reader is not sensitive and unable to read my door card. Hence, it could take a few try to get the door unlock.

Every room has a balcony and depending on your luck, one might face the swimming pool or the hill side. I actually prefer to leave the large sliding door open for better ventilation but that would mean I will be letting all sort of insects to enter my room.

The room itself is poorly maintained as can be seen from the air conditioner controller and the stain inside the wash room.

Even the kettle has stain inside it. Hence, I came to the conclusion the water supply here is not as clean as what I expect from a hotel. I just walk to the nearby Petronas station and purchased myself a clean potable water.

The complimentary breakfast is below my expectation. Even the omelette counter is a letdown. Sometimes the fruits are in pretty bad shape and I wonder what happen to their quality control.

The only saving grace for this resort is its huge pool which attracts a lot of children and adult alike.

Unless the management do some serious upgrading, I don't think I will be coming back here again. Without any wheels, there aren't much thing to do around here and most of the attractions are not within walking distance from this resort.
