I was down in Kuala Lumpur recently, invited to attend the soft launch of the Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas in Bagan Lalang, Sepang.  That night’s event was officiated by the Minister of Tourism Malaysia, Dato’ Sri Dr. Ng Yen Yen with the presence of many investors and people from the local & overseas travel agency.

Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas, is a brand new luxurious holiday resort by Sepang Goldcoast. What is unique about this resort is that it stretches out from the Sepang coastline, almost a kilometer into the sheltered waters of the Straits of Malacca with 393 sea villas that shape a palm tree. It had been noted in the Malaysia Book of Records as “The Longest Palm Tree Shape Resort in Malaysia”.

Touted to be the first eco-friendly sea-hotel in the world, Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas is a haven of peace, perfect for eco adventure and non-motorized water sports. The Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas proudly received the CNBC Best Property Award and Best Interior Award 2008!

After an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur, both my husband and I finally arrived at the resort. It is indeed an ideal holiday retreat; place for a romantic quiet getaway for two or a family vacation.

The villas and the clubhouse are separated away from the lobby. Guests traveling between the two places can opt to take a slow and leisure walk or climb on for a ride on one of the many shuttle buggies.

Every one of the villas is separated from another at a comfortable distance overlooking the sea. There are five distinctive villa types which are elegantly furnished to choose from, with the Travelers Palm Villas being the smallest to the largest Royale Palm Villas. All the villas come with air-condition, ceiling fan and modern amenities.

The Canary Palm Villa that we stayed in boasts a living hall and two bedrooms, one with a queen-sized bed and another with twin beds.

The bedrooms are glass-fronted and open out to a private deck with sweeping views of the Straits of Malacca and the villas. We really enjoyed the experience in the villa, especially with the calming sound of the waves below and the clear blue sky above.

There are loads of fun and a wide range of entertainment and leisure activities with land sports, water sports and fitness in the gymnasium which offers a breathtaking panoramic view. On the water, guests can experience canoeing, windsurfing and cart sailing, while on the land, they can take up archery, biking and beach soccer.

There are plenty of dining places at the Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas. In the morning, we had breakfast at the cafe. The buffet style breakfast serves many delicious breads and pastries too. Another attractive place is the soon- to-be open Chinese Restaurant with its balcony overlooking the infinity pool. Two other well known restaurants is the SGC Steamboat Restaurant and the SGC Sunset Beach Restaurant which we have yet to visit.

We ventured out to explore the manicured tropical garden alongside the beach which is indeed tranquil and rejuvenating. It offers the perfect setting for relaxation! Besides that, there are many other nearby attractions such as the Mangrove Sanctuary, Fruit Plantations, Wetlands, Orang Asli Settlement and the Sepang F-1 Circuit.

Really nice place to for holidays and relax. But too bad it is too expensive for me. It is a private property or can we just go there and snap some photos?

CK Lam Reply:

They do have on-going promotions…do check it out.
As in all hotels and resorts, there is bound to be areas for all visitors and also restricted areas just for their in-house guests.

Its A pity the sea is not clear like those around the Islands on the East Coast of Malaysia or the Maldives. Then, it would have been PERFECT.

CK Lam Reply:

It is not clear but it is clean.

This is very beautiful. Glad they’re catering to the slightly upmarket crowd now, concentrating on rejuvenation packages rather than opulent 5-6 stars resorts in the city.

CK Lam Reply:

You are right! Everyone can enjoy visiting the place.
