Regalia Residence with Rooftop Infinity Pool @ Jalan Putra, KL

Henry Tan | 4:50 PM | |
During our 3D2N Trip to KL, we have chosen Regalia Residence as our stay thru the use of Airbnb instead of the usual hotel booking. This was our first time so we actually read up a lot of reviews before deciding on one. Regalia Residence is located in the city center and the main attraction for us of course would be the roof top infinity pool with perfect KLCC and KL Tower view

In case you do not have a Airbnb account, 
(You and I will get RM65 travel credit each!)

Regalia Residence

As you may see, there are actually quite a lot of option given the same Regalia Residence, so you really have to read carefully and choose accordingly. We have chosen those available on our date, price range, as well as room type which is the Entire Home/Apt. So the one we got is a studio apartment at high floor from Muzamel, a good host with a lot of good reviews. (We didn't get to meet the host though as all communication thru Whatsapp only)

***Do take note that Muzamel's check in time is at 6pm, which is quite suitable to our timing. So when we were arriving, we gave him a text and he send us a detailed check-in procedure thru Whatsapp. The first and only bad thing about Regalia Residence is the car park for traveler with car like us. We were told to park at the visitor car park at the road side as we do not have access card into the residence car park. During day time, parking is fine but at night when everyone is back then it could be very limited and it is on first come first serve basis

Regalia Residence

Regalia Residence consists of 3 towers, namely Melrose, Milan and Madison. Ours was at Melrose level 34. Since it is a studio apartment, once opened the door you will see the kitchen, the living room as well as the bed altogether, just like a standard hotel! Overall, the cleanliness was good for us and it is spacious too.

A small kitchen is available with fridge, microwave oven, toaster, cooking pot and even washing machine! You can find all the basic cooking utensil in the drawers or the shelves. To be honest, we didn't use much of those as we eat out most of the time and washing machine is not needed for 3D2N. But you can find some drinks in the fridge in case you have a sudden urge to quench your thirst.

The bed was fine but don't expect those 5 stars hotel's thick and comfy bed. TV was quite small to me too (maybe too used to wide screen TV) and most importantly there's no sport channel for EURO for me! But anyhow, TV is not a main attribute as most of the time we were outside too. Afterall, nobody go for vacation and just to watch TV in hotel right? I find the red multi layer rack with multiple extension cord right beside the bed very useful and convenient. You know with all the gadgets (handphone, powerbank, camera, etc) nowadays, I gotta charge those batteries with easy access right beside my bed! 

Here comes the main attraction!
Rooftop Infinity Pool

Regalia Residence

Right after check-in and settled down, we quickly went to another tower (Milan if not mistaken) for the infinity pool at level 37. It was around 7.30pm, whereby it was the best time for sunset photo shooting! Do take note that you will need the access card to scan at the lift in order to reach level 37. Once you walked out from the lift, you will witness the magnificent view of KL city with a infinity pool right in front.

The infinity pool is not too big so it could be quite a headache to take photo when it is crowded. Fortunately our timing was right and the crowds were bearable. Otherwise, I do not think anyone would enjoy a good swim here, a soak or a dip would be fine though. But I supposed the developers have thought so too, hence, there is another recreational pool at Level 5. We did not swim there.  

Regalia Residence

Regalia Residence offers a wide range of facilities such as restaurant, bistro & bar, playground, gym and sauna but we didn't enjoy any of those at all. Maybe next time if plan for a getaway, then one whole day just stay in and enjoy all the facilities would be nice. During our stay, there were quite a lot of foreigners so you can bet the quality is good enough that they would want to stay. 

Regalia Residence

Overall, Regalia Residence is a good place to stay especially for those traveling without car as two train stations (KTM Putra Station & LRT PWTC Station) are available within 5 minutes walking distance. Sunway Putra Mall is also located nearby with a stone throw away. I will update with a another separate post with all photos at the infinity pool as I supposed not everyone would keen to see me naked with thin arm and flabby body. XD

Go try it out and let me know! 

Till then!
