Thinking to have a mini vacation around malaysia? How about Philea Resort & Spa? Allow me to share with you about our 2D1N experience at the place. We booked this place way in January 2015 via groupon at a very good discount rate. The cost of this place could sky rocket to RM900++ per night during high season and we are fortunate enough to saw the deal.
We have planned to go during my birthday weekend in April but life happen and we end up spending my birthday weekend at the hospital instead. My daughter was admitted in ICU and it was just one of the scariest moment in my life. I am grateful that she is now healthy back and be as active as she were before.
The management of the hotel were kind enough to allow us to change the date of the booking and we decided to go during my daughter’s birthday weekend instead. So exciting! We went on Saturday morning around 10am and then went for simple lunch before heading to Ayer Keroh, Melaka. The check in at 3pm. The drive took around 2 hours from our home in Kota Damansara.
My husband is very familiar with Melaka as it his home town from my mum in law side. To fine the place is just breeze for him But worry not, even if you are not familiar with Melaka, it is very easy to find the place. As you pass the Ayer Keroh tol, drive slow keep the left as it is the first exit.
That it me and my daughter at the lobby. We arrived 1 hour earlier and they were kind enough to let us check in early since our room is ready. Yeay~! this is a good start. Owh ya, as you check in they will provide a welcome drink and welcome ice cream.
Since the place is huge, a buggy service is provide to chauffeur you around. If you like to walk, you may do so too. We end up using the buggy service only 2 times (check in, check out) because we prefer to walk and enjoy the scenery.
Check out this video to have a room tour, by sincerely yours.
They even provide a baby cot and it is complimentary. Yippie yeay! So, if you have a toddler or baby it is convenient to have a family vacation. I also found out they also provide a baby sitting service but didn't try it out. We end up bringing Sofea to the swimming pool to play with other kids. We had such a memorable experience!
We spend the night by having a fancy buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant. Since we are staying at the place, we were also given a 20% discount.The food selection was okay. If you cometo Melaka for the food, then you may drive out to the town and enjoy your assam pedas. The breakfast on the other hand was awesome! We all agreed (yes, including Sofea) that the breakfast really out do the dinner. Breakfast was given for 2 pax each room and no charge for baby. Baby seat is provided for all restaurant inside this hotel, so good news to parent out there!
After the big breakfast, we end up walking around. The weather is so nice on that Sunday and we really did enjoyed our morning walk. The place is well maintained and the scenery is very relaxing. It remind me of old english country side when I walk pass all the terraces and villas.If you would like t o have sneak peak of the Philea Resort & Spa, do check out the video of our morning walk below
Ending this post with our family picture. hahaha.. my daughter is not cooperating during the process as you can see. That’s it for today. Hope you find this post helpful or beneficial and till next time!
