Travel To Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort

It's been awhile since I last updated a travel post, and my last year's trip to Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort wasn't as impressive as I'd thought it will be. Read on that you'll know what exactly to expect if you are going to choose Avani as your stay.

Don't get me wrong though, the view and the shower (yes...the shower) is amazing. Indeed it was very therapeutic. But what bothered me just a little bit was the fact that the walls had many spots of paint peeling off and curtains weren't changed to newer ones; as there was visible cigarette burnt marks.

Now, normally these little defects won't affect me or my experience of staying at a place, but I just thought of pointing it out as I do realize that there are travellers which are more 'particular' when it comes down to even the smallest details.

When I walked into my room, I was greeted by a beautiful swan couple. A little bit awkward since I was alone, but hey, at least you'd know how it would roughly look like when you come in for a honeymoon stay. Or maybe they will do a little more in terms of decoration, I don't know, it's best for you to call them personally and check what do they offer for Honeymoon deals.

The bathroom was what turned my perspective around; although I am usually not picky, I hate to admit that I get very agitated if the toilet isn't well taken care of (my experience in Thailand, was horrible as the hotel my parents and I stayed at had horrible bathrooms! Can you imagine, you had to squat in the tub to take a proper shower, and if you were big in size you'd probably had to squeeze yourself into the tub. My father even hit his head multiple times with the shower head. The flush weren't properly working and neither were the sink taps --- the horror that I wish will never befall any of my readers). Thankfully, Avani's bathrooms were well-maintained. Even the shower felt like I was playing in a rainfall.

The highlight of my stay at Avani was the sea view that my room came with. Be it, sunrise, sunset or even the night view, I was always accompanied by beautiful sceneries, the calming sounds of the waves hitting the beach and the occasional birds flying by. 

It was so therapeutic that I could definitely stay in my room while enjoying the breeze at the balcony for 3 days straight with just a novel and some yummy food.

Speaking of food, Avani's breakfast buffet is delicious. Simple meals were prepared but definitely full of flavour. There were the classic Malaysian breakfast meals and really good taste-bud-tingling pastries. It's been awhile, but I remember filling up my plate with all their pastries; F.Y.I I don't enjoy sweet food as much; but I went all out because they were good.

During my 1 day stay, I didn't manage to dip myself in the pool, as there were too many people in the pool by sunset. Some, were swimming but I noticed that most of them were staring at the beautiful sunset. I did the same too, the only difference was that I was out of the water. 

Oh! Before I forget, if you do choose to stay at Avani please don't forget to visit HM Sri Bagan Sepang! You will enjoy the whole trip even more with all the mouthwatering seafood delicacies that they serve. It was my third time dining in at HM Sri Bagan Sepang, as I've been there twice with my former colleagues from Limkokwing.

Let me make a public service announcement, because if you are planning to stop by the beach near the seafood restaurant you'll need this fair warning. There are way too many beach bugs at there and ever since they started digging up the place to add more land, the bugs and every other insect had multiplied in number. 

I only went to the beach to take, more or less, 10 shots of the sunset, and I came back to my room (after dinner) with more than a dozen insect bites all over my legs. So its best to wear fully covered clothing if you were to go there or better yet, just skip the beach part.

Even though it was a really brief stay, I still managed to calm my mind and block out all the stress. If you are looking for a short getaway from the city, then you could also book a room for yourself at Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort. 

I do sincerely hope that you will enjoy your stay at Avani and that their management will pay a little more attention to details especially the up-keeping of their rooms.

Till, my next travel post, have a good trip to all my fellow travellers!

    1. Hi Farah, for this post, I was using my Canon EOS M10. It's one of the perfect compact cameras to bring around.
