Birthday Getaway – Villa Samadhi

“Lose yourself in a day dream…”

As you can see from my previous birthday blog post, I began my 24th birthday feeling very loved. A true validation of God’s love for me, blessing me with all the amazing people. & speaking about surprise, I am a total sucker for surprise. I love planning for surprise, but definitely love to be surprised even more (duhhh, haha).

Surprise always works for me. The effort though. (:

On my birthday, boyfriend told me that we’ll be going for a short getaway. We arrived with a very warm welcome & were ushered to our room without much delay. Went up, opened up our room’s door.

I was surprised, yet again.

The whole room is filled with balloons, with photos notes tied on each of it.
Oh my, I, didn’t know how to react. My eyes & mouth were wide opened.

L O V E is, balloons.

I would agree that nothing says birthday like B A L L O O N S.
You’re never too old for birthday balloons! Haha.

Thank you, love.

You always surprised me by how much you know about me.
I love balloons, you know they never failed to make me smile.

& you, make my heart smile.

A friend asked me, “Do you know what he loves about you?”
I answered, “Because, I am a princess.”

I can say that, because you allowed me to. Thank you for making me your princess.
Thank you for giving me way more than what i deserve.

It’s true that love, is never smooth sailing. But I’ve learned to embrace storm, it teaches me to LOVE better. I am just really glad that we’ve grown so much, together. I believe, there’s more to come, for us both.

So, where were we?
Posted this on my Instagram, & so many were asking about this hidden paradise.

This place is a perfect definition of serene oasis of calm, located in the heart of KL. It’s stunning, & you would be surprise how peaceful it is. Perfect spot to unwind & recharge.

Here’s where I spent my 24th birthday — Villa Samadhi.
An urban getaway, with no beach & flight ticket involved. Hehe.

Boyfriend booked the luxe crib. It surely felt like a home more than a hotel.
The rooms is extremely luxurious, spacious, & very well equipped.

Besides the nice comfy bed (& squishy pillows), my favorite would be the double rain shower. I love this large drops rain shower!

Best of all, there’s a private heated Jacuzzi tubs in each room.
I don’t mind staying in here for hours, like seriously.

I want a jacuzzi like this in my bathroom in the future!!!!

A therapeutic hot tub, and a man who loves you.
That’s more than enough. Heh.

Two is better than one.

Okay, dragged myself out of the jacuzzi;
Dressed up & we’re ready for an evening drink!

A spot to enjoy the sunset over the city while sipping on your favorite cocktails.
This roof top bar is open for complimentary free-flow drinks before dinner for all in house guests.

My boy looking good, with his glass of Gin & Tonic.

I never like Gin & Tonic, but this Villa Samadhi Special (with lime & cucumber) is different. Probably one of the best I’ve ever tasted! Absolutely love this refreshing summer cocktail.

I was feeling a little adventurous, so I ordered Cosmopolitan instead, turns out to be pretty tasteless. Well, I ended up drinking his glass of Gin & Tonic, haha.

Night view.

Our specially arranged dinner table in the middle of the pool, guess now it explained why Villa Samadhi is said to be a hotel geared for romance. I was initially a little shy to walk over to the dining table, haha. But it’s alright once we were sited down.

My date for the night.
“I will keep improving myself, I want to impress you. Because, you matters.” He said.

We have been dating for long enough that today I would call him, my FAMILY. In the end of the day, everyone has flaws. It’s a matter of finding the one you can live with.

Too often, we find flaws in others while hiding ours.
Accept it, we are never born to be perfect.

Thank you for showing me how with my flaws, I am loved & able to love.

Dinner taime, Thai cuisine.
Food weren’t exactly amazing, but they are good.

I will let these photos speak for themselves.

Soft shell crab, smoked duck & scallop.
One of my favorite dish that night. (:

After dinner, I jumped into the Jacuzzi again, followed with a hot shower.
Then, we spent the rest of the night lazing in room, listening to music, and watching drama.

As I aged, I felt it’s no longer about the agendas;
The companionship, matters most.

Next morning.

Chilling by the lagoon pool, enjoying the peace and tranquility setting of this place.
& of course, took a few mandatory shots with the canopy daybed.

He knows my best angle, & always surprise me with beautiful candid shot like this.

Much love.

Both buffet & ala carte breakfast available.

Scrambled egg, served with homemade marinated smoked salmon and cheese, together with potatoes & tomatoes. Simple yet satisfying breakfast. (more smoked salmon available at the buffet counter).

Went for a quick dip before we leave the place.
I had the whole place to myself, & spent a good 30mins in the pool undisturbed.

I am so grateful for this much needed excellence inner city escape.
A truly hassle free (close to home), short & sweet breakaway from the reality.

There couldn’t be a better choice for a birthday getaway of 2 days!
I will definitely come back to this beautiful resort again!

Sweet pills from Jordan. I don’t know, but things like these always melt my heart.
Thank you, dear; I am really happy & grateful to have you. Thank you!

Love you, still. (despite your triple chin, hahaha.)
