The PPL is an oasis in the middle of Putrajaya, with its lakeside location, well manicured and lush grounds as well as well-appointed an luxurious rooms. However, such resort-like amenities may be irrelevant, and even a bother, when you are there for a sun-up to sun-down conference, as many are wont to do in a landlocked, city hotel.
My room, which was on the Spa Floor, had everything, and then some. Bed was super comfortable. There was a jacuzzi bathtub in the bedroom. You read that correctly. Not in the bathroom, but the bedroom. If you're with your significant other for a romantic escapade, it is a wonderful amenity. If, however, you're alone and only use the room to catch 40 winks, the bathtub is just an obstacle when you want to draw the curtains. Save for that, the room was perfect.
A colleague remarked that one needed a GPS to get around the hotel. I agree. It is spread out across several blocks, like a sprawling beachside resort. On more than one occasion, staff had to guide the way (they were excellent in this regard, by the way: plenty of then around who dropped whatever they were doing to assist you). The quickest way from A to B is to cross the open areas. Fine when it's sunny. Inconvenient when you're in business clothes, have to get to the meeting room and it's raining.
We had our buffet meals at the main restaurant / coffee shop. It was a hit or miss, with some dishes repeated over lunch and dinner. However, the good was fresh and healthy (low salt). The spread was not as large as I would expect of a 5 star KL hotel, though.
