Earlier, we had a satisfying buffet breakfast at Delicious, one of E&O Residences’ F&B options.

Kids are curious about the various giant birdcages in the restaurant.

E&O Day 2

Decent spread of American and local breakfast buffet.
E&O Day 21

The cakes and pastries do look delicious.
E&O Day 23

There is a spare kids room in E&O Residences, not exactly kid’s club. While Mummy goes shopping nearby, Dads can chill in the aircon environment. While the boys play basketball, Boon Xin tried to build a tunnel.

Can you spot our own Twin towers?
E&O Day 210

KL attractions, E&O Residences is about 15min walk from KLCC, and 20min from Berjaya Times Square (indoor theme park). Bukit Nanas is a green pocket (nearer to KL Towers) for nature lovers.

Do take note temperature in the city often soars to a humid 34 or 35 degrees Celsius!
Monorail or the free KL bus should bring you to your destination in comfort.
E&O Day 28

After a short 15 walk to KLCC (also known as Petronas Twin Towers), shopping beckons. Tourists can opt to get a bird’s eye view of Greater KL from the 41 and 42 floor (just do not attempt a Sean Connery or Catherine Zeta Jones acrobatic moves aka Entrapment).
E&O Day 24

Hot day, if only we can dip our feet inside the cool fountain 🙂

KLCC GoPro, trying to keep our eyes open under the glaring afternoon Sun. Not easy to wefie as the two towers are really tall! (you need a wide or fisheye lens, we used our GoPro)

It is easy to lose our way and orientation inside the massive mall. Boon Xin shopped for a necklace (girly thing) while Boon Yee attempted a Teletubbies ride (oh NO!).
E&O Day 27

Yummy Fuel Shack Burger at KLCC food court, we need to recharge our energy. Be prepared to wait a while for a seat as KLCC is always crowded.

Back in our apartment, swimming pool jump shots for kids again. Although pool might be small, but our kids are still enthusiastic.

We were dipping until the last hour before checkout.

E&O residences review

This pool is an Oasis at EO Residences! No wonder kids wish to go swimming every day.
We are impressed with the amount of lush greenery and landscaping all around us.

It took us about 4 hours to drive North to KL city (including lunch), familiar landmarks like Petronas Twin Towers and KL Towers can be spotted over the horizon. It must be at least 10 years since we last visited KL (Kuala Lumpur).

Most of the time, we bypass KL(吉隆坡) on the way to Genting, except 2010 Sunway Lagoon, and 2013 Kidzania (PJ).
KL Day 1 E&O6

This time round, we were invited to KL’s E&O Residences for a 3D2N stay. It was a good opportunity for our family to catch up with what KL has to offer.

E&O residences is located at the heart of Kuala Lumpur metropolis, yet we are insulated from the bustling streets, traffic jams and hot weather. Luscious landscapes, water bodies ensure guests enjoy their vacation and rest.

Lobby checkin.
KL Day 1 E&O2

E&O Residences’ 2-bedrooms suites are 1400 sq ft, just look at the spacious hall.

Bedroom and dedicated study room, did I mention wifi signal is good and free?
KL apartments

Elegant and luxurious bathroom.

Good thing about apartments are they allow you to cook something light, or wash and dry, and yet we can always rely on room service (just like hotels) to clean up if we are lazy 🙂
KL Day 1 E&O13

Video : Boon Xin is too short for the basin (hahaha), and swimming pool FUN!

View of KL Twin Towers (Petronas) from our room, Towers look magnificent, day and night.
KL Day 1 E&O7

Kids quickly make themselves at home, it means they are comfortable with their rooms 🙂
Friendly staff at E&O gave the kids some toys and drawing kits in case they need additional activities.
KL Day 1 E&O14

Who could resist the alluring green view from our full screen window. The pool is so inviting!
KL Day 1 E&O

Kang loves the pool, so do we! You will notice that the pool is fringed by tall trees, providing shade and that sanctuary feeling.

E&O Residences’ pool comes with jacuzzi pools and a view of KL Twin Towers.
KL Day 1 E&O10

Kids help themselves with the jacuzzi pools.
KL Day 1 E&O9

Boon Xin is trying to tip toe and show you she is 1.2m tall. Smaller kids will need to bring float along to enjoy the pool.
KL Day 1 E&O11

There is a mini playground corner next to the gym. While parents jog on the treadmill, they can keep a close watch over the kids.
KL Day 1 E&O12

Love the feature wall. Just follow the steps to fold a boat or an aeroplane.

Relax on the swinging beds, do not swing too hard after a heavy meal :p
Needless to say, this swinging beds are very popular with guests.
KL Day 1 E&O5

Lush green landscape all around us, can you spot KL Tower through the roof?
KL Day 1 E&O3

Monorail station Rajah Chulan is just a 10min walk away. Just hop one stop to Bukit Bintang, where food and shopping awaits! Think Lot 10, Sungei Wang, Berjaya Times Square, and many more food options.
KL Day 1 E&O1

Thanks to E&O Residences, we have rekindled our interest in KL and realised 3D2N is not enough to explore KL. Get the latest updates from E&O Residences Website and Fanpage.

Additional tips to enjoy KL :
– leave the car in the carpark and take public transport. GPS is not always pinpoint accurate, as the streets are too closely interlinked. Long detour if you miss one junction. Even locals will tell you to take the train.

– One station from “Rajah Chulan” (nearest to our apartment) to “Bukit Bintang” (for shopping and food) cost RM1.20
– E&O Residences is 10 min walk from KL Towers, and 15 min from Petronas Twin Towers (refer E&O map)

– the one-bedroom suite at E&O Residences were fully occupied during our stay, do enquire early to make your reservation

– do pop by our Malaysia road trip and safety recommendations (Genting, Cameron, Ipoh, Melaka, Cyberjaya, Legoland etc)
