Novotel Surabaya Hotel & Suites, Indonesia
But this time, just a short one to let you see where I stayed in Surabaya.
I’ve got the room at a very special deal. No prize to guess why. I’m the best ever travel consultant you can ever find! Some special skills needed and I’m not gonna teach you!
The security was very tight due the Jakarta bombing on the same morning. It was very traumatic you know! You are gonna travel and there is bombing in Indonesia. Though Surabaya is far away from Jakarta, but still…!!!
I’m gonna walk you through the “holiday resort in the city”. Well, Novotel Surabaya has a lot of hotel facilities which we were unfortunate enough not to be able to enjoy. We had a very kind and great host in Surabaya to bring us out to see Surabaya instead of getting stuck in the hotel. Thank you, Alain (if you are reading this).
That’s what you see when you enter the lobby and then below would be the reception and the area around it.
Then we have the surroundings of the hotel around the pool area and the environment as well. Staying here in the city, does make you feel like you are staying far away from the city. Usually resort hotels are located further from the city.
Now, move on to our 2 bedroom apartment suite. This was the first apartment suite that was given to us. Not really spacious and the master bedroom was twin bed instead of double bed. They look the same but the bottom picture would be the master bedroom.
The 2 bedroom suite comes with a kitchen, living hall with basic facilities and of course both the master and secondary rooms comes with attached bathroom. Plus, it’s a two storey suite hence the staircase up to the master bedroom.
Average night stay in Novotel Surabaya would be from about RM 300++ per night in a deluxe room. For the two night stay, we paid RM 740 and it’s a 2 bedroom apartment suite. Divided by 3 people, it’s like cheap lor!
You can’t book the 2 bedroom apartment via the online booking tool but you can always book through an agent (like myself) or write in to the hotel via email (contacts below).

It was after the Christmas BarBeKILL, The Boys made their way up to Penang. I joined them later on by taking a flight on AirAsia. That’s when I got the Air Asia Last Minute Super Cheap Fare.
We stayed at Flamingo by the Beach Hotel, Penang which is located on the stretch of Tanjung

Since I knew that I was going to Bangkok by Malaysia Airlines, why not I travel in style as well?
So, I contacted one of my friend who is working with Marriott in Malaysia and he helped me connect to a special deal with Courtyard by Marriott, Bangkok.
Earlier last year, I’ve embarked on a training program

This place is just impressive. The kind of place where I want to have access to.
Vertigo Lounge is exclusively open to owners of The Verve Suites at the moment.
Just like how I was in awe of Petronas Club at Twin Towers, I fell in love with this place when I walked around.
Located at 35th floor
