We visited around after the International Dragon Boat Festival. The man made lake was made like a beach just right in front of Pullman Hotel & Resort.
Pullman Putrajaya Lakeside was opened in March 2009, which is located right next to the convention centre.
The sand is fine and clean, it wasn’t too crowded, only a few families with kids having fun in the water.
Pullman Hotel & Resort is huge with 283 rooms. It is crafted to depict architecture and ambiances that are distinctively ethnic Malays, Chinese, Indian and of the Borneo continent.
It was so tranquil that I heard only the melody in the wind and the water. They might not have done enough promotion as we don’t see any guests at all in the hotel.
There is a restaurant built on the stilts with no customers at all.
The 400-hectare man-made lake at the heart of Putrajaya which serves as a climate moderator, has a Class 2B water quality graded by Interim National Water Quality Standards. It is suitable for national and international water sports events. Currently the lake offers activities such as canoeing, kayaking, sailing and boating.
This is the building of maritime which has just started operation.
This is where the sailing equipment stored.
Sailing courses are available here in Putrajaya lake. If you already know how to sail, you can rent the boat here and sail in the lake.
It’s indeed a nice and unique resort that requires more publicity.
