In the frenzied development of the country, it is easy to overlook the fact that there are plenty of amazing destinations to be had in Malaysia.
One such is Mangala Resort & Spa, a place that has been metamorphosed from an almost barren, ex-mining site to a haven filled with gardens of palm and fruit trees, natural lakes and lush tropical landscapes.
Located in Gambang, Pahang – a mere two-hour drive from Kuala Lumpur – the estate was originally intended for personal enjoyment before the overwhelming desire to share the experience with the discerning public took over.
Today, Mangala Resort & Spa houses 31 villas – and counting. Now, let us take you on a tour of this delightful site to see what Manga has to offer.
All the villas (see gallery above) are spacious and serene with natural wood decking, while at the same time offering absolute privacy. Inside, other than the expected amenities like wireless internet access, workstation and mini-bar, you will find an ultra-comfortable king-size bed and a bathroom with either an indoor or outdoor rainfall showerhead and bathtub.
Want you own private pool? Ask for one of the Vana Villas, we are sure that you wouldn’t be disappointed.
Although the resort promotes eco-consciousness, modern and luxurious facilities, such as an infinity pool, a wellness spa and a lakeside bar (where we kicked back, relaxed and immersed ourselves in a true sanctuary of peace and tranquillity on our final night) have not being overlooked.
We suggest that you make the most out of your stay by signing up to the on-site activities, which include archery, cycling, birdwatching, kayaking and horse riding, and go on at least one of the excursions to the night market, Sungai Lembing Tin Mines Tunnel or Berkelah waterfall, just to list a few.
If in doubt, talk to their knowledgeable and amicable naturalist and recreation consultancy team for recommendations or a personalised activities programme specially created in accordance with your interests.
Given that Mangala Resort & Spa is in the midst of an expansion, there are plenty more to see and do within this fantastic establishment and in 2017, it makes the perfect place for a relaxing domestic escape.
