Far away from the hustle bustle of the city, there is a stunning new eco-friendly resort on the Sepang Goldcoast, which consists of nearly 400 sea villas built in the shape of a palm tree that stretches out nearly one kilometer into the Straits of Malacca!


#1

The Golden Palm Tree has also been listed in the Malaysia Book of Records as the longest Palm Tree Resort and these villas comprise of the world’s first eco-friendly sea resort.

Check out the photos I took of the resort...


#3 Blending Polynesian-Maldivian style and decor with local kelong-style stilts, all villas are adorned with alang alang thatching that has been used in Indonesia for hundreds of years.

What a wonderful place to relax! It certainly looks like paradise on earth for holidaymakers. Everything I could ever want from a perfect beach vacation is here.

Now that I've seen the sunset, it would be nicer if I had a chance to see the first glow of daylight begins peeking from the horizon. I'd gladly get out of bed, grab my camera, oh but then again, it just isn't possible unless I'm willing to pay RM700 a night for a one-bedroom villa!

This is similar to the concept that they wanted to do in Abu Dhabi (before they fell bankrupt) wasn't it? Is this a new place, because I thought this project was launched a couple of years back. Anyways, the place does look absolutely gorgeous.. definitely a home away from home vacation. I love it. However, for rm700 a night.. well, of course I would, if I had the $$$$ but since I don't, then I'd just go island hopping in KK then for the time being! :) Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, gorgeous blue green seas and fish lapping at your feet on the jetty.. :)
