2. Twinkle Villa Janda Baik
If you watch the Twilight series (starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson), you would’ve known the famous Cullen’s house. This retreat sort of reminds you of that famous landmark with its contemporary architecture that’s surrounded by big trees. Twinkle Villa is perfect for a big group of people or a big family gathering.

3. One&Only Desaru Coast
Desaru definitely has a beautiful beach and it’s no doubt why it is a popular holiday destination. One&Only Desaru Coast was just opened in September 2020, and it already made waves for its luxurious resort by the sea (pun intended). If you have more budget to splurge and want to pamper yourself with a Crazy Rich Asian holiday, you should definitely check this one out!

4. Royale Chulan Cherating Villas
This is another luxurious getaway that you can opt for that’s located in Cherating. The great thing about Royale Chulan Cherating Villas is that all of their accommodations are facing the sea and that you’re promised a peaceful vacation once you’re here. The parking lot is quite far from the villas and even the reception, hence your mode of transportation could either be walking or by buggy car service which is actually complimentary. Just one call away and your driver is ready to bring you anywhere in the resort.

6. Daun Retreats Selangor
Daun Retreats may have seemed like it is very secluded and hidden but worry not as food won’t be a problem when you’re here. There are plenty of restaurants and convenience stores nearby which can be sufficed. You can also choose to have a cook-out session. The caretaker will help set up a bbq pit along with charcoal and necessary utensils. If you’re bored (doubtfully), you can find yourself looking at the ducks swimming happily at the fish pond.
These retreats are not bold enough to satisfy your adventurous needs? Maybe you should check out these campsites and glamping sites!
