Villa Samadhi, Kuala Lumpur
- Adults only - great for a romantic getaway
- Luxe yet traditional rooms
- Outdoor pool
High-end and built especially for couples looking to get away from it all, the Villa Samadhi is one of the most luxurious spaces in Kuala Lumpur and is located just a mile away from the Petronas Towers in a very upscale neighbourhood.
The building has been inspired by Malay architecture and perfectly combines luxury and rustic design. Think dark wood, mood lighting and traditional southeast Asian designs and fabrics in each of the 21 villas and throughout the shared spaces. However, Villa Samadhi also pride themselves on sustainability, mainly through the use of bamboo and other local materials handmade by local craftsman.
The luxury villas come with a variety of modern conveniences, as one would expect in such a place. But they really step up the luxury, with some rooms decked out with balconies, private plunge pools and private gardens. A loft room is particularly cosy and features a vaulted wooden ceiling.
The restaurant in the hotel is actually a circular dining room sitting on the edge of the “lagoon”, the free-form pool in the centre of the villa. They serve up local and western cuisine made from local and seasonal produce, naturally. Head up to the rooftop terrace for a quiet drink, or relax in the bar after a day of exploring or shopping in the centre of the city.
The Villa Samadhi is a fantastic place for couples on holiday - children under 12 aren’t allowed in the hotel, so it’s especially quiet, tranquil and cosy.
