Rasa Sayang hotel is truly impressive, well maintained and such a beauty for you will feel so serene and welcomed. The staff of course knew what is expected out of them (Philea Resort & Spa Malacca). So, we got down from the cabs, our bags helped out and cared for, while my other half paid for our two nights stay (RM850.00 ++ per night). Within 10 minutes, just as we were about to go up to the room along with the porter, we realised that our room is facing the main road and not the beach. Certainly quite disappointing because I'm not going to look at the road and counts the number of cars passing by. Well, what else? Back to the reception to change room for RM100.00. That's okay. Not always we are out of the house and not always we stay in such a resort.
Once we were in the room, other half said bye to move on with his appointment. I on the other hand thereafter took pictures of this lovable and comfort zone room. Modern woody ambiance, spacious and super clean. Wiki connection was super speed fast whereas the fruits indeed added an additional welcoming touch.
Equally super clean and beautifully set up was the bathroom with more than enough toiletries. For me, shower gels, shower cap, towels, hair dryer and soap must or should be there. But I really don't need toothbrush, comb, tooth paste and cotton pads because ever since I started travelling, I pack them up in my luggage. Also since I have my own preference of shampoo, conditioner and body lotion, I pack them as well. All of these things were in the bathroom among the toiletries.
This room with a sliding door opens up to the beach out there. So, for the next 20 minutes, I did nothing, I stood on the balcony and looked far and beyond towards the beach, the pools and what not. Thereafter? I'll tell you in Part 2 okay!
