Yup! Did you guess it right? We will be going to Kuala Lumpur (KL) today! Sorry no prizes for correct guesses :P Without further ado, lets begin our discussion on whether this KL deal is really OK. OKKL?!

As usual, firstly let’s do a price comparison with booking.com, agoda.com and hotels.com should you choose to book the hotel on your own. Since this deal offers you the option of 3D2N stay or 4D3N stay, therefore we will do the comparison based on these two options. Assuming that you are traveling over a period of weekend on December from 9 December 2011 (Friday) – 11 December 2011 (Sunday) for 3D2N and 8 December 2011 (Thursday) – 11 December 2011 (Sunday) for 4D3N.

*Note: Price may vary depending on your own travel dates.

2 pax/ Marriott Putrajaya

Booking.com

Agoda.com

Hotels.com

Double or Twin Room
(FREE cancellation and Breakfast)

3D2N
$350.48

4D3N

4D3N

Since the deal is a minimum of 2 to go, therefore the total cost for the two options GrouponBeeconomic offering would be

3D2N: $182 *2 = $364 for 2 pax

4D3N: $273 * 2 = $546 for 2 pax

A quick look on the prices gathered from the table above, hotels.com is offering a rate much more expensive than the other two. Let’s take a look further and compare the rate with booking.com, agoda.com and what this deal is offering and see whether you will be paying more or lesser should you purchase from this deal. Assuming you are traveling on the same dates as above

WHAT ADL SAYS:

Should you choose to purchase from this deal, you will be paying MORE! And if you are opting for the 4D3N option, you are paying $114.99 MORE when comparing with agoda.com. Let’s see the additional perks that come along with the deal such as:

  • Entry to Kiddies World at Marriott
  • Putrajaya Attractons Night Tour
  • Scheduled Shuttle Transfer to IOI Mall, Alamanda Putrajaya Shopping Centre, KLCC Shopping Centre and Putrajaya ERL Station
  • 35% off Massages and Spas at Dewi Sri Spa by Martha Tilaar

However, paying at least about $80-$100 more for the additional perks offered above, do you think it’s worth it? For me, I wouldn’t consider getting this deal after the price comparison as I don’t think that paying that much for the additional perks is worth it. The only thing that attracts me would probably be the discount for massages and spas at Dewi Sri Spa. But again, paying more than $50 for this, the amount that I get to save by booking on my own would probably be equivalent to the discount I get by purchasing this deal.

Another thing is that this deal is valid for travel only between 6 Nov 2011 – 21 Jan 2012, that to say it’s only about 2 months plus which is pretty short in my opinion.

In conclusion, I would advice you to book the hotel on your own with agoda.com for this hotel as you get to save more money by booking the hotel on your own with a F&E tour for yourself and your partner.

What do you guys think? Is this deal OK or not OK?
