Kuala Lumpur, a bustling metropolis known for its vibrant culture and iconic landmarks, has always been a top destination for travelers and locals alike. From its skyscrapers to its markets, the city offers a myriad of attractions to explore. However, amid the hustle and bustle, there's an aspect that often goes unnoticed - the lack of couple's retreats within the city limits. Usually, couples would have to drive all the way to Kuala Kubu Bharu, Kuala Selangor or even Janda Baik for a romantic gateway.
While Kuala Lumpur undoubtedly has plenty to offer, it falls short in catering specifically to couples seeking a tranquil escape from the daily grind. Despite the city's romantic charm and scenic beauty (if you look at the right places, of course), the absence of dedicated couple's retreats has left many longing for intimate getaways where they can rekindle their love amidst serene surroundings - or just a peaceful romantic weekend, maybe?
Tucked away in between the suburban Petaling Jaya and the bustling Kuala Lumpur, M Resort & Hotel stands as a hidden gem, offering a unique escape for couples seeking a rejuvenating retreat. Its strategic location plays a pivotal role in providing an unparalleled experience for guests. This means both Bangsar and SS2 are only minutes away (durian before clubbing anyone?).
Currently popular as a private getaway for families, M Resort gradually evolved into a full-fledged resort that cates to couples yearning for a romantic escape. The establishment’s love for nature and artistry is evident in every aspect of the resort's development, from its eco-friendly construction to the thoughtfully curated gardens and serene water features that surround it.
Upon arrival, guests are immediately captivated by the resort's warm and inviting ambience, not forgetting the cooling welcome drinks as well. The resort's rustic charm and seamless integration with nature create an intimate atmosphere, making couples feel as though they've entered a safe space just for themselves.
Architecture, design and ambience
The architecture and design of M Resort reflect a perfect harmony between modern comforts and traditional aesthetics. Wooden accents, earthy tones, and local artistry adorn the interiors, creating a cozy and intimate environment that encourages relaxation and connection.
Emphasizing wooden features, M Resort certainly knows how to make its guests feel at home. The presence of many wooden features even at places such as the restaurants and the gym, helps us reconnect with nature while still being in the city.
And who knew KL would be so peaceful and quiet at M Resort?
Our stay: The Deluxe Golf Course King Room
We booked the Deluxe Golf Course King Room with a view of the beautiful KGPA golf course. The first thought that comes to mind is the seamless blend of modern luxury and natural beauty. The room's large windows offer a breathtaking view of the adjacent golf course, immersing guests in the serenity of the lush greenery. My partner and I spent a few minutes looking at golfers fumbling their birdies - and it was such a sight.
The Deluxe Golf Course King Room impresses with its spacious layout and tasteful décor. The contemporary furnishings exude comfort and style and the room's ambiance creates an instant feeling of relaxation.
The centerpiece of the room, the king-sized bed, is a haven of comfort. The mattress offers the perfect balance of support and plushness, ensuring our restful night's sleep. The fluffy pillows contribute to a luxurious sleep experience, making it hard to resist hitting the snooze button in the morning (we almost missed our breakfast because of this).
The en-suite bathroom is a delightful surprise, boasting a spacious and contemporary design. The elegant marble countertops and premium amenities elevate the bathing experience to a new level of indulgence. It's a sanctuary within the sanctuary, allowing guests to unwind and rejuvenate after a day of exploration.
The Pool & The Gym
The resort's well-designed pool and state-of-the-art gym add to the overall experience, providing guests with opportunities for relaxation and wellness.
The large pool at M Resort is a visual delight. Its design, reminiscent of a manmade beach, offers a unique twist to the conventional swimming experience. This thoughtful design choice further enhances the resort's tranquil ambience, making us feel like we’re at beach in the middle of KL. Who needs a long and dreadful drive to PD, anyway? My partner and I spent hours here as we spoke about current issues and future plans as the environment felt safe and inviting.
The motion gym at M Resort is pretty neat, too. For a hotel gym, the facility is equipped with top-of-the-line exercise machines, ensuring that guests can maintain their workout routines even on vacation. Additionally, if you’re into yoga, the yoga room provides a serene space for meditation, which reflects the overall focus on wellness at the resort.
The Breakfast & Hi-Tea
The culinary experiences at M Resort & Hotel Kuala Lumpur are equally exceptional, with a delightful breakfast spread and a lavish hi-tea to look forward to.
The breakfast spread at M Resort is nothing short of impressive. From continental delicacies to local favorites, the array of dishes caters to diverse palates. Freshly baked pastries, seasonal fruits, and our favourite part; the made-to-order omelettes are just some of the highlights. Guests are spoilt for choice, ensuring they start their day on a delicious note.
The hi-tea offering is the must-experience one at M Resort. Treats like grilled and baked cuts (don’t miss out on the lamb, I beg!), Italian cuisine, pastries and local delicacies are the ones to definitely try. Our favourite is definitely the ABC corner outside, where the chef will prepare two fresh for you and your partner.
In conclusion, M Resort & Hotel Kuala Lumpur stands as an oasis of tranquility amidst the bustling cityscape. Its strategic location, coupled with the thoughtfully designed rooms, pool, gym, and culinary experiences, creates an unparalleled retreat for couples seeking a romantic escape. The resort's commitment to offering peace and quiet in the city, combined with top-notch amenities and warm hospitality, guarantees an unforgettable stay. For anyone yearning for a serene haven to reconnect and create cherished memories with their loved ones, M Resort is the place for you.
