Best Staycation KL
I gotta admit that as much as I love staying in Kuala Lumpur with ‘Mamak stalls’ in almost every neighbourhood, efficient public transportations and considerable job opportunities, oftentimes my mind needs an escape from this hustling bustling city.
Adding to it, just when we think things couldn’t get any worse, there comes the second wave of coronavirus, leaving us in an exhausted state. We reminisce the days we stepped out of the house without any fear, met our friends at our usual hangout spot or even rushed to grab the front seats to understand the lecture.
Nevertheless, if you are looking for a staycation right after this to calm your soul anywhere in Kuala Lumpur that make you feel like you are not trapped between the huge skyscrapers and the constant sound of vehicles, do check out the list below of the best staycation KL places.
1. Sekeping Tenggiri
Sekeping Tenggiri is located in one of the most happening places which are known for clubbing haven, art and culture barrio and ubiquitous cafes. Yes, it’s none other than the animated Bangsar.
Although this spot is in a local neighbourhood, the ambience changes once you stepped in and gives you the feel as serene as the beaches and as tranquil as the mountains of Bali. Surrounded by shady, leafy greens and large glass windows for sunlight to shine through you, this staycation is suitable for a laid-back weekend getaway.
Featuring around 7 different rooms like the Courtyard Room, Left Garden Room and Glass Room, you will be amazed at the cosy, minimalist interior as well. There are also facilities such as a swimming pool, common lounge and dining area for you to spend your time with your family and friends.
Price per night: From RM220

2. Villa Samadhi
Villa Samadhi is absolutely a treat to the eyes and soul, undoubtedly! I’m still digesting the fact this place exists in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
Having the traditional Malay architecture as an inspiration, every spot of this luxury villa is to take shots of you flaunting in your beautiful, chic outfit of the day (literally). To unwind yourself by soaking on the sun and hopping on the crystal clear cool water, the outdoor free-form pool is where you should be heading to.
If you have thought about surprising your other half with a romantic candlelight dinner while gazing at the starry night, the Srang and Luxe Sarang Villas should be on top of your list.
Being a peaceful green oasis with a rustic, sophisticated Asian dwelling, book a trip with them to get lost in nature while you enjoy the activities performed by cute, playful elephants in Kuala Gandah Elephant Sanctuary.

Address: No. 8, Persiaran Madge, 55000 Kuala Lumpur
3. Sekeping Jugra
The newest addition to Sekeping, this staycation spot is simple yet serene. The single-storey house was built in the 1950s and is surrounded by eight courtyards. The courtyards, gardens and narrow alleyways interconnect the living space.
A rooftop farm where guests can plant and harvest their own food could be everyone’s favourite part of the stay. You can expect some facilities such as a swimming pool, dining area with light cooking and a common lounge.
Sekeping Jugra is convenient for those who would want to take a break from their busy, hectic schedules.
