Mencari Damai di Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu

9:02 AM

Selamat date ke negeri Kelate
Negeri bertuwoh rakyat saye-menyaye
Pasti kamu dilaye denge kemesrae
Budaya kelate penuh kesopene
Budaya kelate penuh kemesrae

Mari-mari pakat mari
Mari melawat negeri Kelate
Sakat sari dua hari
eh tok puah lagi jalle

Daripada Guo Muse
Hingga sapa Rata Panje
Kane bukit kiri hute
Sawah padi tanah bende

Itu sebahagian daripada lirik lagu Jom Melawat Kelantan nyanyian Mat Jen.
Dan sememangnya betul, trip kelolaan Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu dan Destination Malaysia ke Kota Bharu pada 8 - 10 Mei 2015  - meme tok puah jalle.

Syukur alhamdulillah, perjalanan saya dan 15 orang rakan bermula dari Subang Airport sehingga ke Lapangan Terbang Sultan Ismail Petra, Kota Bharu selamat dan meriah. Walaupun kebanyakan rakan blogger yang hadir baru dikenali, namun kemesraan seakan sudah lama berkenalan. 

So, apa yang menariknya berkenaan Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu?

Pertamanya, ia adalah strategik sebab terletak di tengah-tengah bandar dan mudah untuk bergerak ke mana sahaja di Kota Bharu. Hotel ini memang sesuai untuk pelancong kerana kesemua lokasi lawatan adalah terletak dalam jarak yang dekat sahaja daripada hotel. Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu terletak di tengah-tengah bandar Kota Bharu yang sememangnya sangat memudahkan pergerakan pelancong yang ingin melawat lokasi bersejarah dan menarik di sekitar Kota Bharu.

Keduanya, ianya adalah hotel bertaraf 5 bintang dan telah berjaya mendapatkan status Halal dari JAKIM. So, you can bet that the service and the food here is simply marvelous.
Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu adalah milik sepenuhnya oleh Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB) dan diusahakan oleh PNB Management Services Sdn Bhd. Selepas melalui kerja-kerja penambahbaikan, Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu telah dibuka sepenuhnya kepada awam mulai Ogos 2013.

But that's the typical review of a hotel right? 

Let me share with you what I see and feel while staying here for #PerdanaTrail by Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu and Destination Malaysia.
(What is #PerdanaTrail? Keep on reading my blog then you'll know)

Ketibaan kami disambut meriah dan mesra oleh kakitangan Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu yang diketuai oleh Encik Taha Zainal selaku General Manager. Senyuman dan layanan mesra dari semua kakitangan ini berkekalan sehingga ke hari terakhir kami di situ, bermula daripada kumpulan pengurusan sehingga kepada kakitangan yang mengemas bilik (room service). Bak kata Kak Hanim (dLoop Blog), she has found the true meaning of Malaysian Hospitality during her stay in Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu. So have I.

As you enter the hotel lobby, you will be amazed with the interior design and suddenly you saw something more amazing - a room with mirrors. Or is that just the mirror effect?

Being an art lover, this hotel is like a candy store to a to me. Everywhere you turn, you will see wonderful wood carvings. Its on the door, on the wall, in the room - just everywhere. The carvings are delicate and the wood is real wood - not some thin cheap wood. (Hotel Perdana must have invested a lot on this). The rich Malay heritage is shown at full blast here.

You will also see frames of silver accessories on the corridors to the rooms. The accessories are for Mak Yong dancers and my eyes shimmer when I saw these beauties. Being a dancer (read - former) I always have a loving admiration towards a dancer's accessories. So, seeing silver gendik and pending brought me back to those years when I graced the dance floor.

And there are beautiful paintings too, strategically placed along the wall and in the rooms. A fact that I adore about the paintings made by the local artists of Kelantan, specifically for Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu. When one wanders from one room to another, you will feel like admiring a work of artists in a museum. And in certain rooms, it seems like the paintings came to life. Another known fact - there should be not an identical painting out there as all these are exclusively made for Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu.

Then of course, there are the rooms. A fact that I could say at this point is the room is spacious - may it be a Deluxe Classic Room, a Premier Room or a Deluxe Premier. Semuanya luas dan dihias indah, from one wall to another. Setiap bilik juga terdapat lukisan daripada artis tempatan, yang mana menjadikan Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu adalah hotel yang memiliki lukisan terbanyak yang dihasilkan oleh artis tempatan (mengikut Rawlins' Book Of Record).

There are two rooms that I NEED to share the details in depth, namely the Presidential Suite and the Royal Suite. Befitting their names, these two particular rooms are bigger than the others and better decorated (I wonder if that even possible as the other rooms  are beautifully decorated too).

Di dalam Presidential Suite, terdapat ruang tamu yang extra larga dan dua bilik tidur yang juga luas. Di bilik tidur utama, terdapat katil bersaiz King manakala di bilik tidur kedua terdapat dua buah katil bersaiz single. Setiap bilik dilengkapi dengan bilik mandi individu. Presidential Suite juga dilengkapi dengan dapur yang lengkap - terdapat peti sejuk, ketukar gelombang mikro, pinggan, mangkuk dan lain-lain. Sebuah bilik yang sesuai untuk disewa sekiranya kita datang bersama keluarga. Maka, saya bersyukur sebab dapat menjejak kaki ke dalam bilik yang mewah ini.

Presidential Suite - Simply marvelous
Selesai menjengah Presidential Suite, kami dibawa ke the Royal Suite. Jika Presidential Suite sudah cukup luas, the Royal Suite adalah lebih luas dan lebih indah. Ruang tamu memang sangat-sangat luas! Bilik tidur utama juga luas dan dilengkapi dengan ruang rehat peribadi dan jacuzzi  di dalam bilik air! Bersesuaian dengan namanya the Royal Suite, everything is in yellow.

The Royal Suite - the jacuzzi is the gem!
As I have mentioned earlier, Malaysian Hospitality is the motto of Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu. I have stayed in a few hotels before, but never have I encountered such warmth from the staff towards the hotel guests. We were not just a daily routine that they have to entertain but rather family from afar that they embraced whole-heartedly.

Kudos to the staff of Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu. And to come back to these heavenly rooms every night just tops it all!

So, kalau dah sampai ke Kota Bharu, jangan lupa menginap di Hotel Perdana Kota Bharu ye.
Dijamin puas hati dan mesti nak datang lagi.
