A weekend away doesn’t always mean flying off somewhere or spending 5 hours driving up north and, you don’t want to burn a hole in your wallet. Going on a staycation has been increasingly popular nowadays and sometimes all you want to do is get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
If staying in a jungle retreat or city staycation isn’t your thing, you might want to check out Lax Boutique Hotel in Klang. The little township of Klang is famed for its food like Bak Kut Teh and affordable fresh seafood and if you are planning to spend the weekend eating, having a staycation in Klang is a great idea!
Officially welcoming guests in 2015, Lax is a boutique hotel housed in a black-colored standalone building adjacent to Klang’s Little India. From the lobby to guest rooms, we were told that the design and setting is the brainchild of the owner himself. His personal touch is what makes the hotel unique and fun fact, every artwork in the rooms are unique.
The hotel corridors were dimmed and the overall feel is undeniably elegant and modern. In contrast, what we love about Lax is that the rooms are all well lighted up with natural lighting and the rooms were exceptionally spacious! The minimalistic layout of the room is not only aesthetically pleasing but also functional too.
With rooms that are big enough to house 2 to 4 guests, rates are keen and it goes for as low as RM120 per night. Seize the opportunity to visit Klang’s most vibrant Little India street down the road where it comes alive at night.
If you fancy a hearty meal within the building itself, Intersect cafe serves coffee and food from noon till night. Grab a cuppa in the afternoon and if you need some recommendations, their signature Tom Yum Spaghetti and Vietnamese pizza will not disappoint because we’ve tried and we’re craving for it now as we speak.
