Want some romance? Come to Kuala Lumpur
You have a few weeks off and enough miles for round trip airfare. What kind of trip do you plan and to where? Fly to Southeast Asia. Take trains all over. I’ve spent some time in Japan but wasn’t able to see as much as I wanted. – Luka Tacon
Villa Samadhi is located 40 miles from Kuala Lumpur International Airport in Malaysia and only a mile from Petronas Twin Towers, one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. This hotel is tucked into one of KL’s most elite neighborhoods and is a veritable oasis in the middle of the city, combining low-key opulence with a rustic sensibility and Southeast Asian design influences. Walking into Villa Samadhi is an instantly rejuvenating experience. There’s hardly a better way to escape from Kuala Lumpur’s infamous heat than by lounging at the lagoon with a glass of chilled ginger tea. If you’re feeling a bit hungry, grab a bite to eat at Mandi-Mandi, Villa Samadhi’s resident-exclusive restaurant that serves international cuisine with a Malaysian flair. For a late-night treat, order a cocktail at Bumbung, the resort’s multi-tiered rooftop bar. Then, head back to one of Villa Samadhi’s 21 spacious accommodations to catch some shuteye. The resort was designed to be a couple’s retreat, and each room boasts a plush bed and an immense plunge tub. Rates range between 800-1,500 RM per night. Just book your stay by reserving the classic Sarang or the flashier Luxe Crib room, and be sure to book an in-room massage, too. The aromatherapy massage lulls even the most stressed-out travelers into a state of bliss. In the meantime, check out Villa Samadhi’s Instagram to see why this is such a relaxing place to be.
