With interstate travel now allowed, there’s just enough time to plan a much-needed year-end getaway.

While the domestic tourism industry definitely needs our help, we still need to play our part in following the SOPs and keep practicing physical distancing. So, why not splurge on yourself with a secluded, private retreat?

We’ve got just the list of lovely spots all within an hour from Klang Valley for you to escape from the nightmare of 2020!

Embun Luxury Villas

Though only a 45-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur, you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’ve stumbled into a luxurious Bali villa complete with immaculate green lawns, crystalline private pools, fish ponds, fountains and -most importantly- a stunning view of the jungles.

You’ll melt right into mother nature at Embun Luxury Villas perched atop the quiet hilly area of Hulu Sum Sum in Janda Baik as the owners took great care to preserve the site’s natural elements.

For instance, fruit trees like durian and ‘pulasan’ flourish in the resort’s surroundings, beckoning local birdlife to come perch and sing.

It’s also super private as Embun Luxury Villas only has seven pool villas – ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedroom villas – and one rainforest-view suite. Each Balinese-style villa is designed to give its occupants a space of complete tranquility as they fall into the soothing arms of nature.

Gerimis Senja Villa, Hulu Langat

This secluded spot nestled deep within the hills of Hulu Langat is perfect for a weekend getaway with family as you wrap up the year.

Though it’s a luxurious private getaway, Gerimis Senja is actually located on an orchard and surrounded by trees bearing tropical fruits.

The spacious, open-concept double-storey house can welcome up to 15 people with three bedrooms, three bathrooms, an outdoor bathtub and a private infinity pool. Extra mattresses, pillows and blankets can be provided.

It’s also fully equipped with everything you could want for a group getaway. There’s a kitchen, barbeque facilities (utensils & charcoal provided), table tennis, karaoke set, poker set, and board games for a fun-filled getaway.

But if you want to float away, the super-Instagrammable private infinity pool is all you need!

If it’s too late to book a villa, fret not as day trips and (physically-distanced) picnics at Puncak Rimba estate are also possible.
