Editor’s comment: Legoland Malaysia does a fantastic job with creating fun rooms for families with young kids to stay in, and all the staff do an impeccable job with ensuring rooms are clean for guests upon check-in.

The spacious rooms are comfortable but to book the theme you want, best to book one month in advance.

There’s also a Somerset Puteri Harbour Iskandar Puteri that’s near Sanrio Hello Kitty Town, but if you’re here for Legoland then this is better.

Editor’s comment: Honestly, the room we booked was a little small. But to get a sauna and steam room you can use for the price, it’s a pretty good deal. The mattress was a little soft, so if you need a firm mattress best check with the staff before booking. It’s in a good location to relax after all the excitement at Legoland and you can barely hear the theme park from here compared to closer hotels – something to note for light sleepers.

Some hiker friends might appreciate being near popular hiking spots like Sireh Park too. Staff are quite helpful with disabled guests on wheelchairs too.

Natura Hotel, Nusajaya – Updated 2023 Prices

#7 Natura Hotel (3-Star)

Bed comfort: Quite Comfortable

Bathroom cleanliness: Quite Clean

Hotel facilities:

  • 24-hour security

What you need to know in bullet points:

  • Children below 10 years of age can stay for free using existing bedding.

  • 99 Speedmart is right next to the hotel for all the snacks and drinks you’d want for late night snacking.

Editor’s comment: If decor and ambiance isn’t high on your priority list, then this hotel is great for its price considering kids below 10 years old get to stay for free. It’s probably the best budget 3-star hotel with air-conditioning for their location, price and convenience with a convenience store next door and local eats nearby. In terms of vibe, we’d say it’s best for college friends who just want a place to stay while travelling to and from Legoland and access to food for the late night card game sessions.
