Looking for a place to stay in Kuantan, Pahang? You might want to consider staying at The Zenith Hotel Kuantan, a 5-star hotel located at the heart of Kuantan, the state capital of Pahang.
For our last night in Pahang, our group stayed in this 24-storey luxury hotel to sleep over before heading home the next day. Upon entering the hotel, you would never fail to notice the very spacious lobby of The Zenith Hotel Kuantan. I’m not exagerating. It’s really spacious. There are also free refreshments like cold water and lemongrass juice for the guests and visitors(self-service) located near the reception area.
So before we tour around the hotel, we headed first to our room(Deluxe room) to settle our things and rest for a bit. I super love my room! It’s been a while since my last staycation and this is what I always look forward to… a very comfortable bed.
