The moment I stepped into its gardens, I knew I entered a different realm. I promise that I nearly felt myself levitate as I exchanged the gas in my lungs with the pure fresh air from its surroundings. As I breathed in the antidote, the stress that weighed me down evaporated through my nostrils. Mother Nature, I have come home to you! This time, through Sentosa Villa, Taiping.
Check out attractions and charms of Taiping here.
|My perfect hideout|
|Sentosa Villa, located just 500 m from Taiping Lake Garden|
|Our family villa at RM338 (low season), RM378 (shoulder season)|
Our abode that weekend was a duplex Family Villa which is seated in a spacious lush compound of the resort. There is ample parking space next to the villa and shaded by trees' canopy.
Our Family Villa is a duplex unit fit for 4 persons with a king size bed downstairs and two single beds upstairs. Its wooden interior reflects a calm and cosy feeling that soothed every one the moment we stepped in. Warm lighting emanates from the lamps hung stylishly from the high ceiling.
Curtains were also promising privacy in the upper deck so that the sisters can gossip all night while the parents are in slumber. Timber tones and creative use of natural elements remind us that luxury in life does not come only in the form of diamond and gold but much more in the form nature. The vegetation outside the villas balcony is a definition of the real paradise instead of air conditioned shopping malls. Nature is now a rarity and we felt rich being embalmed by its fresh air, cool streams and extremely relaxing landscape.
The bathroom I would say is a stunner! A bath in the open is definitely the most liberating experience here. Let the stars in the sky illuminate your shower. Its spaciousness itself is a chic set up. Guaranteed a stress-free time in here!
Unquantifiable bliss is just on the other side of the glass balcony door. Untainted air reaches your lungs at the twist of the balcony knob. My parents were in heaven with their cup of joe and legs on the rests. It did not matter to them anymore if my sister and I existed until meal time came! I felt the privilege of inhaling energizing oxygen generated from the stomas of plants all around.
Every corner of this place offers a rustic and nostalgic background of how simple and happy things were before all the sophistication of technology and development. Its unsullied environment is priceless and all just waiting for your discovery. The price that we pay for the resort is totally under rated for the goodness we receive from nature. It is a blessing to be able to submerge in this precious environment. Mother Nature deserves to be repaid in our appreciation more than anything else.
