Last but not least in this Taiping hotels list, if you’re looking for resort Taiping Perak options on offer, you may also want to consider the Bukit Merah Laketown resort, set at the same location as the Kampung Air Chalets listed earlier in these reviews.
The Laketown Hotel is situated right next to the Bukit Merah waterpark, along with the Kampung Air Chalets; the main difference is that this hotel building is on land, rather than over water as the Chalets are. Still, you get all the benefits of the location and amenities at the resort.
Just 18km from Taiping, this is the perfect place to enjoy the natural surroundings, and yet be in easy reach of the Taiping attractions in town. Facilities at the resort include 3 restaurants and bars, access to the Laketown Ecopark and Adventure Park (as well as the waterpark), making it perfect for a trip to Taiping with kids.
There are three main room types on offer: Standard Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Junior Suites. Deluxe rooms have 3 single beds or a king bed and a single bed, making them a good choice as a small family room.
We love this location for the beautiful nature and all the fun things to do in the parks.
Both this hotel and the water chalets can get very booked up during weekends and holidays – so book well in advance! Food inside the adventure parks can also be overpriced.
If you prefer to stay outside of the city and want to be next to beautiful countryside, Bukit Merah lake will not disappoint.
