Philea Resort and Spa Malacca

Resort made from log

The resort is located at Lot 2940 Jalan Ayer Keroh Off Jalan Plaza Tol Melaka. Immediately after exit the Ayer Keroh's toll, take the left turn. The resort is built next to the Butterfly and Reptiles Park Malacca. 

I would say this resort is unique. Why? As highlighted in its official website,, the resort is the first and largest log resort in Malaysia. It offers a calm and privacy holiday for those who need one. Since we stay in Kuala Lumpur, we will choose this resort whenever we need a short vacation nearby our place. It takes about 2 hours journey from Kuala Lumpur.

Love the fascinating view around the resort

 Visitors' cars are parked at the designated parking near the lobby. From the lobby, visitors may take the buggy or walk to the assigned cabin or room. My spouse prefer to walk around the resort to enjoy the beautiful scenery around there. My son and i enjoy the buggy ride. So, sometime we take the buggy, the other time we walk.

Beautiful pool

My son fall in love with the swimming pool. With no interest in pool before, he become motivated to swim in this pool having seen the beautiful layout of the pool surrounded by man made waterfall. We have some privacy there as there were not many people at the pool. Since we didn't expect to use the swimming pool, we didn't bring our swimming costume. Here there go extra cash spend for the unexpected cause. We shopped at Aeon Malacca. Not that far from the resort, yet the heavy traffic really caused inconveniences.

Overall, we really enjoy our short vacation at the resort. There are several types of room to choose from (e.g. pavilion room, Philea Suite). I admit the price is a bit expensive. However, this can be compensated with the experiences that we got there. Philea Resort and Spa Malacca offers different experiences than the typical hotel rooms and environment (e.g. in the city center).

Room for 3 persons

In term of food, i would rather suggest visitors to eat outside the hotel, as the food taste in our opinion, is just so-so. If you are keen on having a great taste of food, you may want to travel outside the resort, for example, go to Umbai for tasteful grill fish and other seafoods  or Malacca central for traditional Malacca foods. However, you have to forgo the time spent at the resort. So, choose wisely. We definitely will come back for another short vacation in the near future.
