After our three day stay in the heart of Malaysia Kuala Lumpur we decided it was time for a relaxing resort before continuing our journey.
Initially I had booked a three night stay at the Golden Palm Tree Iconic resort. We turned up after a 1 hour or so drive from the CBD only to be bitterly disappointed with the resort. I guess no amount of good reviews can really be enough sometimes. Although it was well recommended along with a handful bad comments I just didn’t think it could be so bad. We checked in and there started the disappointment. There was nothing to it but huts stretched for a km in the water. Got online there and then and started searching. Again only relying on reviews we settled for Avillion in Port Dickson. We called the taxi back and he drove us some 35 km from where we were.
We were greeted with a smile even with a 10.30pm check in. We booked the premium water chalet which meant uninterrupted sea view. We visited the spa twice for some amazing traditional Malay treatment from head to toe. The treatment was simply fantastic. The staff were so professional and the entire experience was something to be hold. I want to go back already.
The entire three days has been nothing short of amazing we couldn’t prepared to leave.
