Philea Resort & Spa - Malacca, Malaysia (Part 1)


Really, I can't recall the last time I visited Malacca though vaguely it must have been during my teens. So, that was a valid reason for a weekend gateway to the historical city, listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. Because I have not travelled alone in my entire life, I didn't dare. To play safe, I asked a family friend to come along and she agreed. However, the catch was that her husband conveniently tacked along without even having the courtesy to prior inform me. Anyway both were happy for I requested for an addition bed and I swapped my credit card for the 2 nights stay in Philea Resort, located barely a minute away from Ayer Keroh interchange of the North South Highway.

We arrived just on time for the afternoon check-in here at the resort, recognised as the largest log cabin resort by Malaysian Book of Records. Certainly a total rustic beauty in a luscious green nature surrounding and upon entering the cabin, the nearest to the waterfall like pool, I was totally impressed with  the spacious built-up and loveable set up - beautiful woody deco with the right colour coordination. 




Everything by far was fabulous including the bathroom for its exclusive deco, as big as a room, stylish bath tub, a tv mounded right across it, separate shower area and all the toiletries neatly arranged on the long bathroom top.


While we wished we could have rested for a while, we couldn't because we left to Malacca town for lunch.

To be continued.

  4. These log cabins really do have a cozy look to them and makes you feel at ease. Nice accommodations.
    My relatives had a log cabin house built and there is quite a bit of maintenance to these for the wood has to be treated every so often.
    Thanks for sharing your visit to Philea Resort and Spa!
