Why travel out on the long weekend when you can stay in the heart of the city without feeling like you are? Respite awaits you in
the heart of, wait for it… Subang Jaya!
Staying in the city for long weekend breaks is probably the best thing you could ever do for yourself, vacation-wise. Why worry about driving out of town only to be caught in a jam along with other holiday-makers, or jostle with the hoi polloi at the airport but coming back in deep need for a holiday from the holiday? For KL-ites, much needed respite beckons from as close as… Subang Jaya!
While the suburbs may seem an unlikely place to find a holiday retreat, you’d be pleasantly surprised to know that 150 hectares of lush tropical gardens await you in one of Subang’s quieter enclaves. Nestled in the heart of this green lung is The Club Saujana Resort, a luxury sanctuary that promises peace and tranquility when you need it—but is close enough to your favourite malls should your urban sensibilities take over!
Still, why would you when the resort is an already elegant reminder that you don’t have to stray too far to feel a sense of calm and reclaim your balance? The world seems to agree—The Club Saujana Resort has won accolades including the prestigious World Luxury Hotel Awards for Best Luxury Hotel in Malaysia in 2014, and has even appeared on Conde Nast Traveller’s Hot List in 2009.
There’s little wonder as to all the praise — every attention to detail has been accorded to your stay so that you can relish in the beautiful grounds, well appointed Burmese teak and terrazzo suites with walk-in wardrobes and plush beds, lavish bathrooms with rain showers and bathtubs. At your beck and call is the Club Concierge, available 24 hours a day.
Once here, shut yourself off from the world and enjoy a marvelous session at The Spa, a therapeutic haven replete with nine rustic spa villas from which you can enjoy a selection of indulgent Asian treatments. Or else, dine under the stars with cuisine prepared by 16 points Gault Millau awardee Chef Alexander Waschl. Enjoy a dram of whiskey at the Bar with a book in hand or simply lounge in the comfort of your suite.
Lazy afternoons by the pool or rounds of golf at the resort’s sister property, The Saujana Golf and Country Resort, completes the long weekend. This is a staycation at its best—luxurious, stylish and utterly plump in the promise of relaxation.
