Somerset Damansara Uptown Petaling Jaya, Malaysia

Staycations have been all the rage for a number of years now, as folks look for a weekend getaway within the city they live in. Serviced residences nowadays provide facilities on par with hotels, often with the added bonus of much more space at very competitive rates.

To keep things exciting plan your stay based around the serviced residences location as we did when we recently stayed at Somerset Damansara Uptown Petaling Jaya Serviced Residences. Visit the nearest mall, eat at the neighbourhood restaurants and explore a new part of town, and return home feeling well-rested and rejuvenated.



Somerset Damansara Uptown is one of the premier collection of The Ascott Limited's serviced residences in over 100 cities around the globe. It is conveniently located next to the new Starling shopping mall as well as right in the middle of a commercial hub where numerous offices, restaurants and cafes are situated, making it the perfect home away from home for travellers, those on business or for families looking for a new experience.

The 24-storey serviced residence features 211 contemporary serviced apartments, with a choice of studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments.  We stayed in the two-bedroom premier apartment, which comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, a living room, dining area, two bedrooms, and two bathrooms. We were impressed with the spaciousness of the unit (1066 sqft) which can comfortably accommodate up to five people.


There is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, as well as a separate working area and ample wardrobe space.The ensuite bathroom comes with shower and eco-friendly bath amenities.



Twin single beds in the second bedroom, just nice for our kids :)

The apartment is elegantly furnished, with homely comforts such as LED television with home entertainment system, DVD player, washing machine and dryer, a steam iron and ironing board and complimentary Wifi in rooms and all common areas. And since it is a serviced residence, there will also be complimentary housekeeping services which will come and tidy your room for you.

In the kitchen, on top of the usual coffee/tea making facilities, you will find cooker hob with hood, microwave oven, toasted, oven, refridgerator, glassware, crockery and cutlery; all of which are available for use should you wish to cook during your stay. Otherwise, there are lots of fantastic dining options within the vicinity. Some of the local eats that we checked out included: Annie 1, Nam Heong Ipoh, and Village Park Nasi Lemak.




There are kids channels available on the TV, or pay a visit to the Children's Playroom located on the Reception level. It kept our kids entertained for hours; they can engage in role play, read a book or play with the toys.  Daniel wanted to take the Shark home.





For guests, there will be a small continental spread served for breakfast, such as cereal, fried rice, fried noodles, eggs and pancakes as well as coffee/tea and juices. You can enjoy an alfresco breakfast or in the Resident's Lounge.





There is also a fully-equipped gymnasium, as well as outdoor gymnasium area should you wish to work out. There is also an outdoor swimming pool as well as children's wading pool with lounge chair to just sit back, relax and enjoy the city skyline.







Verdict: Great for family staycations. We love the swimming pool and children's playroom and there is a shopping mall directly next door if you are looking for more things to do (eat/visit the bookshop/watch a movie).
