A year has flown by and we didn’t even realize it.
Spending one year with each other in pure bliss equals a thousand years of experiencing all the other pleasures of life.
Here’s wishing us both a rocking first marriage anniversary!
*Picture loaded post ahead!
Since both of us are quite tied up with our work, it’s almost impossible for us to “leave the country” this month. And we wanted a getaway so badly, (*sounded desperate*) LOL we settled for:
This is a small villa residence that is located right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Many would ask, “Why still head back to the bustling capital city when you wanted a more relaxing and tranquil space?”
Well, very well asked but for those who doesn’t have the extra time to spare for a longer get-a-way, Villa Samadhi would be a perfect choice for 2. Upon reaching, we didn’t really have a clue if we’re at the right place as there are not much signage directing us and there are trees surrounding the place. The guard then assured us that it was the villa and opened the high bamboo gate ushering us to a different side of KL.
This villa is special in a way because each room bears individual character & furnished just like your private holiday home. Unlike any other 5-star hotels in Kuala Lumpur, you could easily dwell in tranquility when you make Villa Samadhi your holiday villa. Some bigger rooms even have a modern kitchen and private garden.
Our room: The Luxe Crib
Very spacious with a high plush bed, big bathroom, a huge Jacuzzi (subject to availability) and a private balcony. We just love the enhanced space that created the comfy ambiance and the defining features of the Jacuzzi 🙂
Thoughtful welcome messages
The huge bathroom
Rain Shower area. Love this! Have always wanted a rain shower for our home!
Automatic Heating times: 3-5pm, 7-11pm
This is the Lagoon
The all ground-floor units are built alongside the ‘lagoon pool’ allowing direct access into the water! If you wish to swim, just open your balcony door and you can jump in 🙂
Relaxing day beds
Overlooked by the villas, this is their all-day dining room which sits by the edge of the Lagoon. Available exclusively for residents only.
We decided to have dinner at Mandi-Mandi since we’re all in to enjoy what this villa have to offer. Actually too lazy to drive out for dinner. Haha.
A small in-house restaurant but we simply love the ambiance, designs and the table set-up that compliments the Indochina culture. An almost perfect Bali resort-like dining room with cutleries made of china. We were both ushered to our table inside Mandi-Mandi and Chris told me that we can only start ordering at 7pm as the kitchen is not ready yet.
While waiting, here’s the complimentary cocktail for 2 during dinner time
One of the staffs then approached me and said, “Miss, let me show you to your dinner place. But the journey would take about an hour to reach due to traffic jam.”
Puzzled. I asked, “We’e not having dinner here?” Looking at the hubby. And he smiled a little.
“Actually he has arranged something for you, so you’ll need to travel there”, said the staff politely.
Still looking at Chris, and guessing that we will be taken to some Tamarind restaurants nearby which I don’t think we need an hour, I just followed (*they provide free shuttle services to the group of Tamarind restaurants)
We were led outside and he pointed me to this:
“You’ll be dining on an island!”
Oh yes, it was indeed a very cute island with just the both of us on it. And I have to crossover to this island via a bamboo bridge on my heels! What an experience LOL.
Anyhow, I have the best hubby in the world! haha.
Dine by the Island – RM350 per couple
Pros: Super romantic – surrounded by the pool, with many petals & candles.
Cons: So dark and we can’t really take good pictures!
Pros would be more than cons so we still love dining on the island 😀
Trio of Bruschetta

Sorry for my drunk face 🙂
Still very happy.
Another lovely surprise from Chris when we returned to our room. He requested for our room to be decorated and they did it so lovely with flower petals. “Why it says Welcome and not Happy Anniversary?” I asked. He told me that word is too long and I think they ran out of petals! LOL.
It says “LOVE”
Chocolates on our bed end 🙂
Like an ala carte buffet, you can choose from a page of varieties, from local delights to western choices.
