It was another random staycation during the Chinese New Year of 2018. This time, we had opted for this roughly 2 years old resort, Mangala Spa and Resort which located at the largest state in Peninsular of Malaysia, Pahang. From the capital Kuala Lumpur, it took us about 2.5 hours to reach this suburbs area using the East Cost Highway or Lebuhraya Pantai Timur (LPT).

There is no shops and retails within convenient walking distance. Well, just the right staycation for a total relaxation.

We always enjoy staying in hotel with executive or club lounge where you could chill there all day long. Continue reading Christmas Eve Staycation – DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Kuala Lumpur
