We've been invited to spend a 2 days 1 night stay at The Everly Hotel, Putrajaya in early August. This hotel is quite new and it is situated at Precint 1, Putrajaya and it is interconnected with Putrajaya's famous shopping mall; The Alamanda Shopping Centre.
The check-in time was at 3pm and since the hotel is only 30 minutes away from home, we made a move after Zuhr prayers and after having our lunch at home. After a smooth check-in, we went up to the 3rd floor. We stayed in Deluxe room, with king bed and free breakfast for 2. If I am not mistaken, during the promotion period, Deluxe room with breakfast for 2 person only cost you RM206 (including taxes!). Quite cheap, aite?
Falisya went straight to the daybed as soon as we went into our room. Hihi
Twinnies checking the view at the balcony while Faaz has just tested the king size bed. :P
The Deluxe room is quite spacious. We have a king size bed, a daybed, and a balcony with the view of the Putrajaya lake (and a bit of swimming pool view). The wardrobe is equipped with iron & ironing board, safety box and sajadah for prayer. Well equipped I must say. ;)
The bathroom is decent and equipped with toiletries and standing shower. Please ignore the reflection on the mirror :P
Since we did not have any special itinerary or plan, the 2 days 1 nite stay was spent well at the hotel area, especially in the swimming pool and at the shopping mall. It was a total relaxation in this short excursion. Blessed! :) The kids especially enjoyed their swimming activity and during the 2 days stay, hubby managed to brush up again Faaz's floating and swimming skills. Hurray! Really look forward for the day Faaz Naqi able to swim on his own, without any support. Insyaallah, soon k sayang? :)
Faaz and his swimming instructor :D
The adult swimming pool in Everly Hotel is a long pool with infinity concept. From the pool, we can see the Putrajaya lake view which is quite nice especially during sunset. Since the children pool is quite small, twinnies refused to go there. They too swam inside the adult pool, with the help of the floats of course! Hihi..
Hubby enjoying his long stroke...
Falisya too, practising her swimming skill. So eager this young lady to learn to swim. Good baby! :)
Haaa, yang ini ikut mommy. Agak malas dan lebih suka terapung saja.
Keh Keh Keh...
That night, we went to Alamanda Shopping Centre for dinner. Since the buildings are interconnected, we decided to walk. We dine in at Manhattan Fish Market that night before bringing the kids to Toys R Us for window shopping and later made a short visit to Aeon supermarket to buy some snacks.
As we entered the hotel's lobby, we decided to spend some time at the lounge. That night, we were entertained by Mr. Kenny Tay who was famous in 70's & 80's with the group Kenny, Remy, Martin (with the hit song "Suratan atau Kebetulan).
It was a nice show, and when he sang the current hit song "Say Something" by A Great Big World, Falisya jumped in excitement! Haha! Look at her reaction below which I managed to snap! :D
FYI, it's one of Falisya's favourite song and she addressed it as "Kakak Tasya's song" because our niece Tasya has performed this song few times with cousin Faris during our family events. Hihi, cute! :D
The very next morning, we went to the buffet breakfast downstairs. The buffet spread is quite good but the food finished quite fast and they took sometime to replenish it back. Well, people hate to wait you know, especially when it comes to food. Remember, "a hungry man is an angry man" :P
My breakfast... (the first round) :D
Budak tak mandi pegi breakfast. Ahaks! :D
The rest of the day was spent at the swimming pool again before we went up, refreshed ourselves and packed to check out. Saja let the kids enjoyed the swimming activity as much as they can since it was quite sometime we haven't do this activity.
This young lady refused to leave the pool until she shivered in coldness. FYI it was quite windy and gloomy that morning. Pukul 11.30 pun air masih sejuks! Hihi.
Overall, it was a nice stay at the Everly and I would recommend this hotel if you just want to get away from your normal routine and have a time-out/spend some quality time with your loved ones within the Klang Valley area. The price is affordable, the hotel is quite new and complete with facilities (they also have free wifi) and sooo near to a mall (less than 5 mins walk!). If you are bored with malls, you can always go sight-seeing around Putrajaya area itself.
Sounds quite perfect for a short family getaway, yes? no? :)
