Golden Palm Tree Resort, Sepang

nice photo

Golden Palm Tree Resort is located in Sepang and consists ENTIRELY of water villas. This 5 star resort is a great alternative instead of Port Dickson since the drive is a bit shorter. To be honest I was a bit dubious about this when I drove down with Lainey bff.

sepang gold coast

I had expected an empty resort…


…but the place was PACKED with tourists, both local and international. We stayed in the Travelers Palm Villa and this is what the room looks like:


The double twin bed is Michelle‘s doing. smirk


One interesting aspect about Golden Palm Tree Resort is that the place is exactly shaped like the fronds of a palm tree with the water chalets fanning out into the sea.


It’s a long walk from the reception to the dining area but fear not – there are heaps of buggies which you can hail down and hitch a ride from.


They all have interesting names too.


We arrived there slightly after lunch so we grabbed some tea.

There is a Club Med style package where all F&B is free so you can eat all you want without worrying about having to pay extra.

infinity pool

The one thing about Golden Palm Tree that completely trumps Club Med is that liquor is free too!


Gin and tonic? Vodka on the rocks? Neat rum? No worries, it’s included in the price! =D

water chalets

Anyway, we chilled in our room for a while before heading out to the mangrove tour.


It has an awesome balcony…


…and a shower that I really liked coz you can sing while you soap yourself for all and sunder to see! smirk


You can also jump from the balcony but I seriously do not recommend it. Do it at your own risk. πŸ˜‰


The infinity pool! *refrains from saying “To infinity and beyond!”

boats to depart

Back to the mangrove tour, this is different from the mangrove tour I’ve been to in Langkawi – they have different species of mangrove over here.

I’m on a boat!

Doing our part! *proud

planting mangrove

We’re planting mangrove seeds for it to grow.

Next on the itinerary was The Search for the Holy Ketam. I was one of the few to step off the boat and into the nearly knee high deep (at times) mud.

yellow crab

There are yellow crabs…

one armed crab

…and a very interesting crab with a immense left claw.


It took a while but we finally managed to find ourselves one of them. w00t!

gpt got talent

It was back to the resort after that for dinner and an awesome show by the talents at Golden Palm Tree Resort.

It’s called GPT’s Got Talent and it’s an awesome and interactive night entertainment program. YMMV though, they have different events running at different times.

Me and bff Lainey kept on supporting the good ones but alas, it wasn’t enough.

We had a lot of fun though and met a lot of different people.

The latest way to take a group photo is via video.

Okay la, I set it to the wrong settings. :p

love this photo

I particularly liked this photo. Heh!

We then adjourned back to our hotel where Nicholas and Lainey sealed the deal. *stamps I WAS THERE smirk

it support

I had problems with the Internet at around 1 am in the morning and two of their IT staff came over to fix it. At 1 fucking AM!!! (deserves more than 3 exclaimation marks to be honest)

Now this is what I call excellent service.

The next day…wah damn hard to wake up lor, Lainey was up and I took my time and had a couple of swigs neat from the Absolut Raspberry I brought up before I could properly wake up.

lainey wakes up

Lainey wakes up like this.

i wake up

I wake up like this. T_T I could only drink a beer and eat a banana FML.


The eco friendly water sports were not running that day due to the lack of wind so we ended up…


…touring the place instead!

escapade spa

There was a massage session scheduled for us after that at escapade spa. I love massages and I opted for full strength as did Lainey bff.

foot rub

It is a very relaxing environment and puts you at ease and takes all your stress away.

We got into the couples room and it started with a foot rub before the actual massage.

lainey semi nude

Here is Lainey semi nude. Lainey sez: WA who’s that hottie wei! I was wearing nothing but boxers too.

elaine loh

It was in this totally chill place where the masseuse worked her magic and I completely dozed off after she did my back and moved to my front.

It was an awesome massage though. First class treatment. It can’t get any better than this.

contented smiles

*contented smiles


It was a steamboat lunch after that before lazing around the resort and packing our bags to get back home. I had a huge backpack which I lug around when I travel. Lainey bff travels lighter than me! We really didn’t want to leave. It was such a chill place that we had a discussion about taking leave the next day and just chilling here for one more day.


I love Golden Palm Tree Resort – you can’t ask for more in this 5 star getaway just an hours’ drive from the city. I thoroughly enjoyed myself there. The drive back was quite sad though coz Lainey bff pasaut in the car and I missed the short weekend in Golden Palms. πŸ™


It definitely warrants a return trip back if you want to chill and get away from the stress and hustle and bustle of the city.

  1. At last, the review that I’ve been waiting for.
    Nice one. My family is coming from Miri in December. So I’m planning to bring them to this resort. And yes, its nearer compare to PD.

  2. Starting RM500 a night is a steal considering you get all the piss you can drink and female IT chicks at 1am. Did you get their phone number or at least show them your blog?
    I am still puzzled why that chick is leg humping you. You do have a funny look in on your face.

  3. LeiF: Nice! Yeah, it’s a very chill place and the staff is really nice and friendly too. It’ll be good for your family vacation. πŸ™‚
    rocket: Yeah, it’s pretty good. 5 star resort, the best. πŸ™‚
    Which chick? The massage girl? That was a foot massage bro. πŸ™‚
    f3f: Thanks for the info! πŸ™‚
    KY: Yeah, I throughly enjoyed the weekend there! πŸ™‚
    eiling: Well, it’s at Sepang Gold Coast so the draw is the sea and the chill facilities at the resort rather than the beach. πŸ™‚

  4. The crab-with-an-immense-claw is the the fiddler crab or calling crab. You can only find it on mud flats/swampy areas, never on the beach. They are cute, kinda reminds me of Ludacris in the Get Back video. Lol.
    Wow, the hotel looks awesome, and so close to Kl too. Nice…

  5. Kai: Haha! Of course not la. The definition of bff excludes it. BFF = Best Friends Forever. πŸ™‚
    anchovy: Thanks for the info about the crab! πŸ™‚
    Yeah, it’s a chill place very close to KL. I love it too. πŸ™‚

  6. something is not right here. A man and a woman in a resort and no sex. Something is seriously wrong, where is the real HB? Give him back to us.

  7. Funny how a corporation use the concept of going green or eco-friend when they are destroying the nature to have the 5 stars resort built, so much for going green. I think the only thing that go green is the cash to their wallet!
    nice place though…i hate those all-inclusive stuffs though.

  8. ah nel: Yup, it’s very reasonably priced for a 5 star resort and I love the place. It’s close to KL too. πŸ™‚
    rocket: HAHAHA! The real Huai Bin doesn’t do friends, contrary to popular belief. πŸ™‚
    Mike: Yeah Mike, it’s an awesome place to stay in! πŸ™‚
    Paul: Well, I think by eco resort they mean that they have eco friendly activities. πŸ™‚
    You can opt not to have all inclusive if you stay there, just pay as you go. πŸ™‚
    Yup, it is a very nice place! πŸ™‚

  9. Dawg, you are DA MAN. It seems you like to make out with different girl at different place. You should consider doing annual review πŸ™‚

  10. Dawg, you are DA MAN! It seems that you like to make out with different girl at different place. Should consider doing a yearly review of those chicks πŸ˜›

  11. Jealous guy: Thanks bro but she’s my bff so we just went and chilled.
    No making out happened.
    BTW, if you saw an imposter Huai Bin comment below you, that’s not me. My comments always come out with the blue spanner looking thing – authenticated.
    Hey, you should blog and do that too! πŸ™‚

  12. I can’t help but wonder how you can afford all these luxury trips with meals etc, when you recently reported loosing large amounts of money on gambling (given thatthese stories were true).
    When loosing considerable shares of(or more than?) the average yearly income for an engineer in Malaysia, one could probably expect a less luxury lifestyle shortly thereafter..
    Anyway, it’s none of my business.
    Good luck!

  13. WK: No worries! I had a great time there! πŸ™‚
    Negerkung: T_T
    Don’t remind me about Genting that is a loss I’m still recovering from.
    It’s a good thing I have supplementary income besides my day job. :S
    Anyway, this was an invite kindly extended by Golden Palm Tree Resort. πŸ™‚

  20. hey there…

    kudos on the informative post. however, the part where gpt trumps club med is dubious.

    perhaps you haven’t been to club med lately but as of mid 2006, the south east asia resorts have adopted all inclusive, meaning drinks are included in the package. i should know. i spent 4 years tending bars in the japan, indonesia, thailand and maldives’ villages :)))
