A private sanctuary inspired by the villas in Bali, this hotel is tucked serenely in a private nook in Ipoh, Perak. Though it’s within a short distance away from the city, stepping inside the Ipoh Bali Hotel is like walking through a portal leading to an Indonesia sanctuary.

Its rooms are decorated with art and architecture so authentic to Balinese culture that you may temporarily forget you are still in Malaysia! The cosiness and seclusion from the outside world draws in the perfect environment for an intimate retreat.

Have quiet conversations at the balcony of your top level terrace overlooking the neighbourhood, or lay out a candle light dinner by a private Koi pond built atop a wooden veranda.

Both the Superior Double City View and Superior Double Garden View rooms includes complimentary breakfast for 2, a mini bar, and 24 hours hospitality.

Romantic strolls down white sandy beaches, soft whispers amidst gentle ocean waves. And maybe, proposals at sunset? Okay, let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

Just saying, if you’re searching for THE spot for classy romantic clichés, the Hibiscus Beach Retreat would be it. As passionate as romantic getaways can get, you can’t go wrong with a beach retreat located by the pristine waters of Sabah. Right at the tip of Kudat, to be exact.

Even the hopelessly unromantic will have trouble fighting the flutters.

Hibiscus Beach Retreat Clifftop Chalet

Cuddle in your own sphere of privacy atop the Clifftop Chalet, a personal cottage complete with ocean views and ocean breezes. Or would you rather stay snug on a Treetop Chalet, rekindling affections under the guise of nature?

Regardless, a stay at the Hibiscus Beach Retreat promises memories that will last a lifetime.

Both the Clifftop Chalet and Treetop Chalet come with BBQ facilities, 32” LED TV and WiFI so you two can Netflix and Chill.

Just like the gentle locking of hands, small hugs, and light kisses – simple is beautiful. Precisely how this retreat captures effortless love: simplistic yet lovely.

Time Capsule Retreat is not elaborate or gaudy. It isn’t showy with crystals nor does it flaunt fancy chandeliers. It doesn’t ask for attention. In fact, it stays hidden surrounded by tranquil forests. Inspiring an atmosphere perfect for couples to cosy up with each other in your own private capsules and etch a memorable stay.

Honeymooning lovebirds can opt for either a capsule room with a jungle view or garden view. Both are as enchanting as each other.

If mommy and daddy can’t leave the kids behind, then rooms for families are available too. The Parallel Aurora and Parallel Cooperate is suitable for 2 Adults and 2 Children, while the Parallel Discovery is apt for 4 adults.
