Golden Palm Tree Sea Villas & Spa Sepang Reviews

Nice Villas Mar 20, 2013
The resort has 392 sea villas that shape a palm tree. It’s located in Sepang, an hour drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) and LCCT-KLIA.

We were five adults and when we enquired about the villas, the resort staff offered to us the Ivory Palm Villa and we booked through their website. Checking-in was fast because there were only few guests when we arrived around 4:00 PM. The only problem was the lack of buggy service in the resort. There were guests waiting at the lobby or at the club house to ride the buggy to get around the resort. Guests can walk to their villas but it’s quite a long walk from the lobby and it was very hot. An empty buggy arrived shortly that the receptionist requested for us and drove us to our villa. Our luggage was placed on another buggy.

The Ivory Palm villa is big and superb with two separate bedrooms. The main bedroom is spacious with a canopy draped king size bed facing the sea, ensuite bathroom and balcony. The balcony is big with a table and four chairs with the view of the sea, a perfect place to watch the sunset. Bathroom is spacious with separate walk in shower and sunken tub, it was very clean with complete amenities. Wash basins are separate from the bathroom. The other room has twin bed, the room size is average but the bathroom is small and no tub. All the beds were very comfortable. Bath towels are huge and clean. The villa has a nice lounge and a living room that also has access to the balcony. There’s a ceiling fan in the rooms but we always closed the villa and used the aircon because there were few mosquitoes. There’s no wifi in the villa, only wired internet, it’s free and fast. Free wifi is available in the public area of the resort only and it was a bit slow.

The resort has small infinity pool located in the Club House, at times it was crowded. I liked the taste of the coconut juice we ordered from their Buloh poolside bar and the staff said it was from Thailand.

All the restaurants in the resort are pricey and I guess overpriced. Guests are prohibited and not allowed to bring foods and beverages from outside and the resort is far from the town. We had our dinner at the Perahu restaurant and dine at the deck with the stunning view of sunset. The wait staff was very friendly and foods were excellent.

We had our buffet breakfast and lunch at Bila-Bila restaurant in the Club House. Good selection and variety of foods. Foods were good but there were some flies everywhere inside the restaurant.

The resort also offers various activities from water sports to land sports. We enjoyed biking nearby the resort with a tour guide provided by the resort. Our male tour guide was friendly, polite and a professional cyclist. After biking, we went to their private beach to try their water sports in front of Perahu restaurant. The beach was dirty and muddy. We thought it was a white sand beach like we saw from their website and video but actually not. Fine grey sand with mix of mud. We enjoyed sailing (with one staff) and canoeing, the staff were friendly, helpful and courteous.

Overall, we had a pleasant stay and the service was good. The only let down was the muddy water of the beach.

Instead of getting sweat waiting at the Club House for an empty buggy, guests can call the front desk when requesting for buggy to fetch from their villa to get around the resort or go to the beach but it usually takes time to arrive so better call in advance. The water under the villas runs dry when low tide and you can see the mud and can’t do the watersports.
