A hidden gem in the exclusive Ampang enclave minutes from the action but a world apart, Villa Samadhi is an urban retreat replete with gleaming black cement walls and beautiful antiques that provides respite for nerves frayed by Kuala Lumpur’s endless jams and clamour.
Breakfast, replete with local and international favourites, here is served all day, in-room or at the restaurant. The restaurant only serves in-house guests, so an intimate air lingers. There is a small spa at the top of the main building, with a very experienced therapist who is an expert in Malay massage and herbal remedies.
An adults-only haven that serves all day breakfast at its guest-only restaurant, service here is spectacularly homely, with luxurious touches like complimentary evening port wine proffered in crystal decanters.
Unlike almost every other luxury hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Villa Samadhi is an urban resort in every sense of the term and exudes designer refinements amidst tropical lushness. The raw/ minimalist/ ethnic blend was executed with aplomb, with rooms that are amongst the city's most alluring.
