Itinerary details

Villa Samadhi, Kuala Lumpur


Fly overnight to Malaysia’s capital Kuala Lumpur, and then transfer to your city oasis, Villa Samadhi. Kuala Lumpur is a rich tapestry of Chinese, Malay, and Indian cultures, where skyscrapers clash with elegant colonial buildings. We’ll help you unravel its fascinating history, and discover how it emerged from what was nothing but jungle.

First things first though, in this foodie playground: you’ll enjoy a traditional Malaysian dinner at Villa Samadhi's award winning restaurant, before heading out to try the most delicious satay you’ve ever tasted, freshly-rolled rotis in Little India, and the speciality of beef rendang curry. As night falls, you can rise above the chaos and enjoy amazing views of the Petronas Towers as you sip cocktails in a rooftop bar. Or, for a little break from the city, it’s worth visiting the Batu Caves, where you’ll find ornately painted Hindu deities.

JapaMala, Tioman Island


Make your way from buzzing Kuala Lumpur to serene Tioman Island, and enjoy five nights of barefoot luxury at the private island hideaway JapaMala. This beautiful resort has an unpretentious feel, as each chalet and villa is totally unique. Nestled within the jungle, they feel more like exclusive tree houses. In the mornings you’ll wake up to stunning views over the South China Sea, before padding down to the white sand beach to snorkel, kayak through the mangroves, or just read a good book on one of the shady daybeds. Treat yourself to a final spa treatment in amongst the rustles of the rainforest.
