KSL is a very large hotel attached to the KSL Shopping Mall. The rooms were spotless, room service is offered and there are a number of fast food options in the shopping centre next door. Having such easy access to shops made life very simple I could pop in for supplies of bottled water and snacks without having to find a cab etc.
The staff at reception were lovely and spent the whole time I was checking in entertaining my little boy. Breakfast buffet was good with lots of variety and food was fresh and tasty, my son ate free at breakfast.
A basic room service menu of Sandwiches etc. was available or you could pop next door to KSL mall for a Subway sandwich or something from one of the bakeries.
The Dinosaur water park opens at 10am and we were there waiting (we may have been up waiting since very very early that morning.) At 10am we had the whole park and the staff to ourselves. The waterpark is home to a number of very cool robotic dinosaurs there is a brachiosaurus that spurts water, a T-Rex, a Spinosaurus, a Triceratops and several others. Each moves or makes a noise when the kids come near. The water slides are fine for a range of ages with small ones for toddlers down one end and a couple of larger for the bigger kids. We were literally the only people there for our entire stay in the park which was great, absolutely no queuing. We went back to the park several times over the few days of our stay. It didn’t lose its appeal. The park was very clean and well maintained. Entry fee was minimal, at times its free entry for hotel guests at other times it’s just a few dollars for hotel guests.
If you have a dino lover this is the place for you. If you are looking for a clean hotel in JB then the KSL is a good choice. We would stay again if in Johor Bahru again.
P.S if you’re visiting LEGOLAND The hotel can organise LEGOLAND packages including transpoprt and tickets through their tour desk downstairs or if you want to go it alone they will book cabs for you. They do use the more expensive of the local cab companies so if this is an issue for you perhaps hail a cab from the shopping centre next door.
