This resort may not be easy on the wallet, but it sure is easy on the eyes. Rooms are colorfully Lego-themed, and there’s a playground in the lobby for the kids. The food is nothing to shout about, but if you’re here with your family for the amusement park, the location and fun activities don’t get better than this.

When it comes to the Hilton, you can bet your money will be well spent. Generous room sizes (replete with warm welcome cookies), a well-landscaped pool, and a great view of the city and straits are all part of the package. It’s like you’re in Singapore, but for half the price.

If you enjoy popping out at 11 p.m. for some local nosh, then this is the play to stay. Its relative closeness to the airport means that little else is nearby, which also means that it’s quiet, unpretentious, and you may get the swimming pool all to yourself.

Amari knows how to do gorgeous, because that’s exactly what this hotel is. The stylish carpeted rooms make you feel like you’re perpetually in a spa, and the Amaya Food Gallery has made the dining experience into an art by featuring wood-accented screens and dapper lighting for the buffet.

At around RM200 (about $50) a night, this hotel is a steal. New, clean, spacious, and deliciously modern, Impiana boasts state-of-the-art meeting rooms, three different spas, and a great breakfast spread. The only drawback is that the swimming pool faces a local graveyard—but if you’re not superstitious, this is a non-issue, really.

If you want a lifestyle-incorporated staycation, but without Legoland’s price tag (or the theme park), then check out Le Grandeur. Amenities are aplenty, including a bowling alley, tennis courts, a huge swimming pool, and four different dining restaurants. Furnishing is a little dated, but the recreation options can do much to make up for it.
