Continuing from our Johor Getaway Day 1 at Pulai Desaru Beach Resort & Spa……
After a round of self pampering of relaxation and entertainment by the beach & sea, we adjourned to our next destination, also manned by the Pulai group namely:
Pulai Springs Resort
Special thanks to Pulai group again, we were overwhelmingly delighted to be able to enjoy the lush greenery this round, in contrast to the tranquil blue sea and sandy beaches that Pulai Desaru offered. The Pulai Springs Resort is an area setback near the foothills of Mount Pulai surrounded by a vast green estate that incorporated mother nature’s gift; the countryside view of Johor. They are also nestled near some well-known attractions like the Danga Bay & the Gunung Pulai Recreational Forest.
Their architectural concept is brimmed with our local Malay majestic touch adjunct with a modern feature from the CintaAyu building that makes recreation and business/ meetings a comfortable and memorable agenda.
CintaAyu All Suites
Range from Studio to 4-Bedroom Suites
Our 1-Bedroom Suite (Full Rate: +/- RM600)
Check out their website for current rates in accordance to season: http://pulaigroup.com/PulaiSpringsResort/index.html
This featured their Premier Deluxe, Premier Executive Suite, Pulai Suite & Melana Suite.
Don’t forget to perfect your swing at their national class golf course. Being a golf-noob, never did we know that Pulai Springs is the home to 2 championship golf courses; Pulai Course with stylish bunkering and the Melana Course (champion course). A great place to tee off!
We had a chance to practice our swings at their Driving Range 🙂

Restaurants & Lounges
Qing Palace Chinese Restaurant
Ah Bok welcoming us 🙂
We had a lavish & oriental feast this Chinese restaurant that is famous for its Szechuan fares.
Its interior was hugged with an oriental ambiance that features exquisite and ancient imperial dining hall resembling the Qing dynasty. An award winning restaurant, they sure put up a good job in entertaining our palates & igniting the appetite. Every dish was presented beautifully and not forgetting to mention that they are tasty & infused with heavy flavour that I love thanks to the Szechuan touch.
