Suria Hot Spring Resort, Bentong, Pahang

Ever feel somehow you need a break from that chaotic city? But don't want to go to the cliche hotels and resorts in the city? How about make a change and go up about 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur to Bentong, Pahang and have a stay at Suria Resorts and Hotels' new branch called Suria Hot Spring Resort. It is situated besides the famous hot spring in Bentong. You can just waze this place. It is not that hard to find. Me and my family went here for Abah's ex-schoolmates reunion of Sekolah Alam Shah. All of them are now 50 years old thus the theme is ASCET 50 YEARS.

Abah and his friends.

As for me, when it comes to places I have never been, I like to google first to see what will I be expected when reach there. The first thing that caught my eyes were the hot spring itself. Filtered hot spring from the original on the outside and to be enjoyed by the guests of the resort. Being side-by-side with swimming pool make it easier to shift from hot and cold.

Overly excited me :D

Children's pool

3 types of bedrooms are provided for the guests. First is the Deluxe Triple. Consists of three single beds complete with TV, mini fridge, Wifi and bathroom. This was my room with my siblings.

Next is the Deluxe Quad. Consists of two queen sized beds, accompanied with TV, mini fridge, Wifi and bathroom.

Lastly is the Jacuzzi Villa. Consists of one queen sized bed complete with a private pool in it. Which in this case is the hot spring jacuzzi, very suitable for newly weds or for honeymoon-ers.

Who doesn't like private pool in your own room?

I'll share you with some of the architecturial building and the surrounding.

Cafe 83, Seksyen 7, Shah Alam

I guess one more cafe in Shah Alam, wouldn't hurt right? Say hello to Cafe 83 ! Located at Seksyen 7, in the same row as Big Brothers, Cavallo and Belanga. It is just below of Andheqa Boutique. I was waiting for my boss, when I discovered this cafe. I remembered that my friend Syikin was the muralist for this cafe. Yes, she did The Birdmenco & Panda Pet Cafe. I gave her a ring and we chat.

No. That is not a scar on her face. That is what we called as "Cahaya Nur". Hahaha  

One thing that I like about this cafe is their interior. They are going for something classic, vintage and evergreen. An environment that is approachable and long-lasting. No need to change every few months and waste expenses. As you can see, the woods are all from Jogjakarta.

If you were to hang with a bunch of friends.

The lounge.

The seating.

I really love this setting.

This is how their counter looks like.

For all you smokers.

A lil bit of info on Artura Beans.

I had already eaten my breakfast so I only ordered one cookie and one hot mocha. My coffee-taste experiences may not be as good as a coffee-addict, but the taste was passable. The cookies sold were homemade and it was delicious. I had the Macadamia Cookies and I find that the nuts were in big slices. I prefer it be a little less chunky.

Macadamia Cookie - RM5
Hot Mocha - RM10

I find it odd naming the cafe with numbers. So according to Syikin, (as a muralist, I bet she spends more time with the owner and crew of the cafe) she said that the number 83 represents the year where the owner, Encik Rosli and Puan Azila, got married. Awwww so sweet. Hehe. Well, that's not just it. It also represents the number of ayat in surah Yaasin. Good intentions. Aminnn. Moga diberkati perniagaan uncle and auntie :)

If you were ever to drop by, please order Spagethi Creamy Carbonara, Grilled Chicken Chop, Cafe Latte, Caramel Hazelnut and their cookies. Owh btw they are using Artura Beans for their coffee.

Sharing is caring :)

Grilled Chicken Chop - RM 23
