Wow! These are in Malaysia.

I received this note from my friend, introducing 7 amazing places in Malaysia where we can visit without going abroad.

I have not tried them out, the pictures do look impressive. I guess they also come with quite a big PRICE Tag. 🙂

Extract from Female Magazine:

7 Amazing Places to Vacation at in Malaysia

December 27, 2013 2:36 PM by Rachel Au

Please forget to bring your passport and flight tickets.

Forget Paris and Hollywood land (okay, maybe don’t but let’s just put them aside) because if you’re really looking for a relaxing getaway, we say there’s no place better than home: Malaysia. We’ve listed down a range of spots within the country where you can just turn off and unwind for a few days.

 WITHIN KUALA LUMPUR 

villa samadhi

Villa Samadhi

Despite being 10 mins from the heart of KL, this villa residence is akin to a retreat within a retreat, where privacy and comfort is ensured. Especially perfect for couples, some rooms even come with a modern kitchen, a private garden or even a private Jacuzzi!

Psst… TripAdvisor rated it #2 of 245 hotels in Kuala Lumpur.

Anggun Boutique Hotel

A hidden gem within the Golden Triangle, the cool retreat is as its name perfectly describes it: elegant. With the designs and furnishings (handmade, by the way) of a good ol’ Malaysian house, you’ll definitely feel at home instantly!
