Have you been to Lost World of Tambun before? and have you stayed at their hotel? Well, this hotel belong to Sunway Group and I am very happy to be invited by Lost World of Tambun to come and experience their hotel. I went with 29 other bloggers from The butterfly Projects for a 2 Day and 1 night stay at Lost world of Tambun Hotel. The moment when Tammy said “ We are going to Tambun!” I am super duper happy because I never been there and this would be the first time I’ll be travelling to Tambun! I mean I do travel to Ipoh once in awhile and saw the signboard and stuff but I didnt really get the chance to go and visit the place. Weehoo!!!
That's us dancing, since we were so happy! hahahaa
Before I share about the Hotel, I would also like to share on how do I got there! All of us went there by ETS, yippie yeay! I do recall being on a train with my dad when I was a small kid, even it is just a one time trip with my dad last time, it still bring back so much memories. Check out our pictures before and during the trip.

We had a smooth journey and so happy that everyone able to make it on time on that day. I like the fact that travelling via train is way safer, convenient and cost efficient. Do you know that the cost from KL sentral to Ipoh Train station is only RM35 one way on a Gold Coach? So return ticket cost around RM70 per person. Isnt that just aweseome? The whole journey takes 2 hours. We go off from KL Sentral at about 8.05am and reach around 10plus (okay when we reached I didnt really check out my watch since I was soo happy! hahahhaa). Great Thanks to ETS for sponsoring the ride.
When we reached Ipoh Train Station we were greeted by Firdaus and Syawal from The Lost World of Tambun. Yup, thats Fridaus on the left (both in red shirt) and Syawal on the right (holding the sign). Then right after, we were lead to the bus. It takes u around 20 minutes from the train station to The Lost World of Tambun.
There will be 3 post for this whole Journey experience and this is the first post. In this first post, I’ll be focusing on The Lost World of Tambun Hotel before sharing with you about the Theme Park and The Hot springs & Spa! When we checked in, Tammy, Ayna and me will be sharing our room. Guess what? It is the Super Suite!!!
I am very happy that I puke rainbows! hahaahahahha
Allow me to give you a Super Suite Room tour, this room contained 1 king-sized bed, Sofa bed, 2 bathrooms ,Theme park view, Fridge (full size), Basic tea and coffee making facilities ,Basic hotel room facilities obviously comes with Air-conditioned and a Free Wi-Fi (pretty fast okay the wifi, I have a fun time utilising it hahaha) and the whole room occupies around 47 sq metres.
Check out our comfy bed. 3 of us “slim ladies” slept on this bed comfortably and we still have some space for Ayna to perform gymnastic hahaha (please dont kill me after you read this). I slept on the left, Ayna was at the middle and Tammy occupy the right side.
Check out the HUGE living room that occupies sofa and TV. P/s: The provide 2 TV, one at the living room and another one in the master bed room. So you don't have to fight which channel to watch hahahahaha.
Here is the rest room. Sweet and simple in my opinion. ( I was hoping for a bath tub, but dont worry they have nice Hot springs at the Theme Park so you dont really miss the bath tub) Yes, the chubby lady in the mirror is me.
What makes this Super Suite special in my opinion is that they have this dry kitchen with a mini bar section.
They also provide dining table with 6 seats and basic kitchen facilities. I like it that they also provide microwave and I found it thoughtful.
