Tamarind Springs is a must place to dine, although be prepared to be at a loss for what to choose to eat as everything on the menu is so tempting – best to order several dishes to share!Scott Dunn team
Despite being set in a fairly quiet location in a residential area, Villa Samadhi is just a 10-minute walk from the city center of Kuala Lumpur. This offers the best of both worlds; being able to easily explore the key sites of the city, and then retreat to a peaceful haven after a busy day of exploring. The hotel only allows guests over the age of 12, and so this is perfect for honeymooners and couples.
The property is designed to feel like a traditional villa. There are only 21 rooms and they are all wonderfully spacious, with large beds, lots of floor space and enormous bathrooms. They all have an outdoor terrace, some with direct pool access. The higher room categories have a Jacuzzi tub or plunge pool, and a few even have a kitchenette.
The villa encompasses a charming pool area, dotted with shaded cabanas and fringed by lush green plants and trees. There is only one restaurant at the hotel, but it is excellent, offering a range of local and international cuisine made using seasonal produce. You can also benefit from a complimentary shuttle to the hotel's sister restaurants around the city.
There are only 21 rooms at Villa Samadhi, and so it is worth being aware that it can get booked up very far in advance. The rooms are incredibly spacious, with a modern Asian design. All of the rooms feature modern amenities such as air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and a minibar. The bathrooms are also huge. As well as rain showers, some of the higher categories have a Jacuzzi tub or a plunge pool.
Villa Samadhi only accepts guests over the age of 12.
Given that there are only 21 rooms, Villa Samadhi does not have a huge amount of facilities. However the facilities that the property does have are absolutely charming. There is a lovely free-form pool in the central courtyard, furnished with comfortable cabanas. There is also an excellent restaurant which serves Western and local cuisine. The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle service to its other restaurants in the city.
There is plenty to fill a couple of days' stop-over in Kuala Lumpur. There are city tours, foodie tours and excursions further afield, where it is possible to visit a traditional Malaysian village, or explore the enormous Batu Caves to the north of the capital.
