GLAM Staycation @ Sunway Velocity Hotel

7:30 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

It has been quite some time since I took a vacation. But the thing is, with my current job, I can't afford to take the time off from the office.

So, what do we do? STAYCATION ie staying in town for a vacation.

Me being me, I chose to stay in the city area but the traffic has to be tolerable and every single favourite place is nearby.

So, I chose to stay at SUNWAY VELOCITY HOTEL where it is just an 11-minute walk from a subway station, 4 km from landmark Merdeka Square, 5 km from the 88-storey Petronas Towers and it is connected to the Sunway Velocity Mall. I would say a prime location to explore KL!

With all these amazing places within reach, you would say that I will be running around town exploring them. But NO. It was a staycation, so I will be staying in the hotel, enjoying all the facilities and eat all I can!

A vast lobby greeted me with fresh scented air and the happy smiling faces of the staff upon my arrival. The check-in was smooth and the staff even told me to try their latest tea-time specials available at Kaffeinate cafe at level 5.

The room was spacious. One of my friends forgotten to bring his toothbrush and he was so thankful that Sunway Velocity Hotel has the set in the bathroom.

Once I have done hanging my clothes in the room, I went down to Kaffeinate to try their tea-time specials. And from the pictures below, I know you can tell that I was a happy customer too. For the tea-time menu, they have a choice of juice and hot drinks, that comes with a croissant or its choice of a slice of the best cake available. As you can see, I chose to have the latte with a croissant and my friend chose to have the juice with the delicious and fluffy New York Cheese Cake.

Me being an avid movie-goer managed to force my friends to catch a movie at the theatre at Sunway Velocity Mall. We booked tickets for a 10 pm show.

In the meantime, as we have had very filling tea-time snacks, we decided to visit the fitness center and the pool on Level 16. My friend, who is a workout freak, in return, forced me to run a good 30 minutes on the treadmill while he was doing body toning and some weight lifting. "That's for the latte that you have just had," he said to me.

After the running session, I just couldn't stop myself from dipping into the swimming pool. It has that infinity pool feel. So, I decided to take a few videos and pictures here too.

After the movie, my friends and I decided to play rounds of Uno Attack before hitting the hay.

I almost missed Fajr prayer as the bed was so comfortable and the room was so silent that made me wanted to stay in bed longer. But when my tummy started growling, I know it was time to raid the breakfast at Kaffeinate on Level 5.
It was a full house when I arrived. I scouted the floor to find what I wanted and of course, I settled for nasi lemak, first! And there were more helpings after that - dim sums, noodles, fruits and coffees. I was there until I can't stuff any more food.

After another swim in the beautiful pool, sadly it was time for me to check out from the amazing Sunway Velocity Hotel and return to my old crib.

I need more staycation, just like this one, and soon. Owh. Here is the video of stayycation for your eyes only.
