I went to Zenith Putrajaya Hotel in early June for two days and one night, right after three months of lockdown. I went there with my husband. We chose Putrajaya because it is nearby as we stay at Gombak; just to get some fresh air and release stress after staying at home for a long time.

Ambience and rooms at Zenith Putrajaya

Newly built in 2019, Zenith Hotel is a five-star hotel next to Putrajaya Lake, surrounded by government offices.

I recommend this hotel because the service is fast and efficient. The room is very nice and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is also delicious. What I like the most is soaking in the bathtub because I brought along my bath bombs ?
