*** In the process of being updated – many more recommendation to be added soon ***

We’re budgeting between £10-£20 per room, per night and are staying in a combination of hostels, guest houses and homestays.

Over the course of our trip I will be recommending places that we have found to be the most baby friendly and/or made our experience easier.

Where:  
Juara, Tioman Island, Malaysia
Who:
Juara Beach resort, Kampung Juara, Juara, Pulau Tioman (no website)
What:
Cot, kettle in room, high chairs, a shady beach and extremely baby friendly staff.
Why:
We felt as though we could fully relax here. The staff here are very kind took ‘the boy’ off our hands for periods of time when we were eating. The beach has huge trees casting shadows over it and the resort has plenty of well-maintained grass for babies to crawl around on.

Where:  
Kuching, Borneo
Who:  
Beds Guest House http://www.bedsguesthouse.com/
What:    
Cot, free use of kitchen with large fridge, hob, kettle, washing machine and dryer.
Why:  
A very clean guesthouse with excellent communal facilities. Very easy to prepare baby meals, sterilise bottles and wash clothes.

Where:
Sandakan, Borneo, Malaysia
Who:
May Fair Hotel, 1st Floor, 24 Jl Pryer, Sandakan, Tel: 089/219855 (no website)
What:
Very clean, mattress and sheets were provided for our baby, DVD and TV in the room and boiling water was topped up in a flask for cleaning bottles as and when needed.
Why:
Although this hotel is not specifically baby friendly we found that the rooms were spotless and the mattress placed on the floor was perfect for our baby to sleep on. The hotel has over a thousand DVDs to watch free of charge, so we were able to watch cartoons, which helped keep our baby entertained when he was teething and feeling under the weather.

Where:
Sanur, Bali, Indonesia
Who:
Flashbacks
What:
Cot, high chair, communal fridge, kitchen sink, kettle, swimming pool, free breakfast including bananas for our baby.
Why:
This establishment is superb. The staff are extremely friendly and were great with our baby. It’s spotlessly clean and if you book into room 8 (the cheapest room they have) there’s a small kitchenette directly outside the room and a decked lounge area. The beach has plenty of shady areas and the water is shallow and calm.

Where:
Ubud, Indonesia
Who:
Nirwa Homestay
What:
Small mattress provided as a bed, large bedroom and use of kitchen to clean bottles.
Why:
Although not specifically baby friendly, we really enjoyed our stay as the family who own and run the homestay are very friendly and were very good with our baby. Each day during breakfast they took care of him to give us time to relax. It’s located at the end of a 200 yard path so this may not suit everyone, but because of this it’s quiet, backing onto the peaceful paddy fields.

Where:
Melaka, Malaysia
Who:
Old Town Guest House
What:
Mattress for a bed, air con, high chair, communal fridge, kettle, cooking facilities, washing machine, children’s toys and books.
Why:
Although the bedroom was small this guesthouse has two huge communal areas and plenty of toys and books to keep our baby entertained.  Our baby loved roaming around in the huge lounge and the communal kitchen was extremely handy for preparing food, washing bottles etc.
It’s located in the centre of Melaka so it’s very easy to walk to all of the attractions.

    • Thanks Wendy, I appreciate the positive feedback. Please let other adventurous mums know about the blog. I hope it will help fellow travellers as when we were researching our trip we found very little resources.
