Grand Puteri Hotel is not the only hotel I have stayed at during my numerous trips to Kuala Terengganu, but it is the only hotel that I have noticed that comes with two swimming pools – one for men, one for women.

Islamic elements and prayers over the loudspeaker throughout the hotel at prayer times could be slightly unsettling for non-Muslim guests, however, this three-star hotel is located in town centre, just a short walk from the express bus terminal, hence making it a top choice for travellers seeking convenience to town attractions.
