LOCATED in Perak, the Bukit Merah Laketown Resort has plenty to offer to visitors for a fun-filled day.
According to Sudirman Wan Mansor, resort manager at Bukit Merah Laketown Resort, the waterpark offers visitors a spectacular time with 14 attractions for both adults and children.
The Boomerang slide offers extreme thrill seekers an unforgettable ride while the Body and Tube Slides have always been a favourite with adults and children alike. The only one of its kind in a Malaysian waterpark, the Giant Wet Bubble is a 10ft (3m) gigantic semi-globe and climbing up its slippery surface with only a rope can be quite a challenge.
The Beachfront Wave Pool is a great place for family fun. Visitors can build sandcastles, ride 3ft (0.9m) waves or just relax on the deck chairs. The pirate’s ship and giant crocodile statues are great attractions for children.
The Kids Adventure River and Perak Mining are specially designed for little children to have fun in a safe environment.
The Ecopark is a four-acre (1.62ha) animal park designed within a natural jungle canopy. You can feed some of the animals with food sold at the park entrance. Ecopark houses a variety of animals, including a giant arapaima (a big fish), squirrel monkeys, pythons and venomous snakes. Children love the Pet’s Park as it has rabbits, deer, guinea pigs and pygmy hedgehogs. Ecopark also has daily animal shows.
If you are keen on a night adventure, The Hoot is a nocturnal animal trail in the Ecopark that takes place every Friday, Saturday and on the eve of public holidays and school holidays.
Bukit Merah Laketown Resort also has three accommodation complexes – Kampung Air, Laketown Hotel and Suria Service Apartment Hotel. Built on stilts with a Malay architectural design, Kampung Air is the most exclusive accommodation at the resort.
It is set against the picturesque lake and offers serenity for its dwellers. The 30 cosy and comfortable suites are designed to create a peaceful and homely atmosphere. Visitors can even do some fishing without leaving the comfort of their balcony.
The Laketown Hotel has 173 rooms and is conveniently located within walking distance of the theme parks.
The superior room, with a double bed and a single bed with an attached pull-out bed, can comfortably accommodate a family of four.
Located 1.5km from the theme parks, the Suria Service Apartment Hotel offers cosy apartment-style units with views of either the lake or the pool. Its facilities include a swimming pool with a jacuzzi, gymnasium, sauna and steam bath, mini theatre and a game room.
