10 special hotel experiences in M’sia to be enjoyed exclusively by the fully vaxxed

With 85.1% of Malaysia’s adult population fully vaccinated as of September 30, 2021, it seems that our economy is slowly but surely on its way to recovery.

To that end, more businesses have opened themselves up to the vaccinated public, and people are beginning to travel again.

The desire is real as many of us have suffered from cabin fever over the past 2 years of the pandemic. In terms of options, we have all kinds of Airbnbs for date nights or family outings, but those who aren’t keen on planning itineraries would probably prefer leaving it up to hotels and their packages.

There are multiple hotel offerings on the market right now aiming to provide the best bang for your buck, one of them being Marriott Bonvoy.

Its fully vaccinated members can enjoy exclusive discounts across Marriott Bonvoy’s portfolio of hotels around Malaysia and get rewarded for stays.

Without further ado, here are the unique packages up for offer, split according to whether it’s aimed at families or couples.

Fun for the family

To reiterate, these deals are for fully vaccinated guests in order to maintain the safety of guests and staff. Marriott International has also shared its commitment to cleanliness in the age of COVID-19, which covers the SOPs of ensuring all staff and guests wear masks in public spaces, frequent sanitisation of high-contact points, social distancing practices, and more.

Interstate travel is allowed from October onwards, but many may still be cautious about travelling too far. In that case, this lineup of hotels close to home (for those in Klang Valley) could provide you with a quick respite from the daily grind.
