A hotel built with children in mind; a place where imagination and creativity comes alive.
When I told my two children Ashton and Ashlyn we were invited to a night stay at LEGOLAND Hotel Malaysia, they were over the moon and so hyped up for the trip. They have been to LEGOLAND Theme Park once, so the excitement in their mind was simply indulging in hours of fun at the newly opened LEGOLAND Water Park. But the moment we saw the hotel view from our coach, it was just echoes of ‘Waaaah’…
There’s a reason to be excited about at LEGOLAND Hotel because almost every corner holds something fun and interactive!
Here’s what the Ash babies and I discovered.
The building structure of the hotel was built unconventionally with colorful Lego blocks. I was just as fascinated as the kids and was really attracted to the vibrant colours and architecture.
A closer look at the frontage, we spotted a Lego dragon and to our surprise, it greeted us with a roar! A roaring welcome indeed.
Hassle Free Check-In
The first thing I noticed was the impressive LEGO mini Figurines display behind the check-in desk. The entire display was made up of 12,528 LEGO Mini Figures! You wouldn’t miss this!
Not once did I hear Ashton and Ashlyn asking: “Mummy, what took you so long?” Want to know why? The spectacular lobby features a castle and a pirate ship with 2 HUGE Lego Pits. Plus, the children’s play area is filled with interactive LEGO games and activities. This kept them occupied while I went to settle the check-in procedures.
Toddlers and babies are not forgotten too. There is a play area made of gigantic foam bricks specially designed and catered for the younger ones.
For the slightly older kids who love to play electronic games, there is The Kinect!
With all the activities and play stations around the hotel, it’s nice for us to parents to relax once in a while and not having to think of what to do to keep them occupied. Now back to savour my cup of hot coffee…
Treasure Hunt In The Room
The children were told that there are surprises in the room. True enough, they faced their first challenge. In order to open our room’s safe box, we had to break the ‘Da Vinci Code’.
The Ash Babies really cracked their brains to break the code as they were dying to uncover the hidden treasure in the safe box.
Let the quest begin!
Here’s what they had to solve…
Busy cracking the code with some help…
Yay! We managed to open the safe and here’s the little welcome gift they’ve got!

A Vast Spread At The Bricks Family Restaurant
Bricks Family Restaurant is a buffet style dining restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a variety of western and eastern cuisine available, your taste buds and bellies are in for a treat!
What the children love and kept going back for more was the candy corner. There were sweet treats of all sorts; chocolates, candies, lollipops, jelly beans, fruits… you name it, they have it. To top it all off, they have a three-tiered chocolate fondue for you to dip your candies in. Ashlyn could not resist the sweet temptations and returning to the candy corner for refills. I had to remind her to watch her sugar intake…
Spacious and organized, The Bricks Family Restaurant can cater up to 465 guests.
Mummy Look! Live-sized LEGO People!
All the children were thrilled when they were greeted with roving LEGO Mascots throughout the day. A few came to say ‘Hi’ when we were having our meal.
Early Christmas Celebration
We had an early Christmas Celebration at LEGOLAND with the impressive light-up the 9m tall LEGO Christmas tree. (Yes! It’s built entirely of LEGOs). The park lights up at 7pm daily with carol singers and mascots appearances through the evening.
With that, we ended our day of fun at LEGOLAND.
