The Epitome of An Ideal Getaway - Gold Coast Morib Resort.

Hello folks!
The title says it all!
I believe for those that has been following my Twitter and Instagram (sophia_suefei), most of you would have know that i went for a short getaway with dearest le fatty boyf of mine for a two days and one night in Gold Coast Morib Resort!

We actually bought it from which i will further elaborate on it later. 
(the current deal that is being offered now is better so read on!)

 Here's what i think about our lil 'sweet escapade;

Otw there! So excited! 
The journey took about an hour and fifteen minutes from Cheras.

#1. The Room - Studio Suite.

As particular as i am about rooms, i actually quite like the room because the most important thing is it's CLEAN. It is tiled floors hence, there is no weird stench like what we usually experience from carpeted hotel rooms.

They gave us the two single beds cause we requested for the theme park view. Obviously we were told that we could combine the beds together so that i could hug my fatty boyf to sleep lol wtf.

I was actually expecting a smaller room but it turns out to be spacious for a studio suite. To top that, there's fan and AC so for those that is sensitive to AC like me, you can turn on the fan instead. So yeay! I am satisfied with the room and now the next important thing is the toilet!

I apologize as i did not take a full view of the toilet so i hope you have a very good imagination lol.
That's the jacuzzi (you don't say haha!) and then if you can imagine, opposite of the jacuzzi is the glassed shower room, toilet bowl and the sink. Basically as you enter the toilet, on your right is the sink, the toilet bowl, the shower room and opposite of all of that is this jacuzzi. Lol, i hope i don't confuse you but well, the only issue we have here is the toilet bowl could not be flushed properly and the side nozzles of the jacuzzi ain't working.

#2. Water Theme Park.

Took this pic from Google cause' the one i took from our balcony is in le boyf's phone fml lol.

Basically this is the view of the theme park from our balcony. Not much things actually. Just the slides, the lazy pool, and some kiddy area. We were actually quite upset cause' we did not get to play the big slides. WHY THE HECK DID YOU GUYS ONLY OPEN IT IN THE EVENING?! Other slides ain't thrilling enough. =(

If you purchase this deal, the tag can be used for both days. =)

#3. All-terrain Vehicle (ATV)

We paid RM50 for this for a 30-minutes ride. Two persons on a bike.

I find it a lil' expensive but it was worth it cause' it was my first time and it's fun!

Told my boyf that i wanted to try to make a heart shape but obviously, that didn't work. Too difficult to control cause' it's fast.

30-minutes felt like 10-minutes. 

It would be better if the beach is in a better condition. I mean, there's lots of crows. Like really really a lot. Plus, the beach is like....muddy. I don't know how to describe it. I was actually hoping for sun rise/ sun set but it was like...a single tone. No clouds just plain looking gloomy sky.

#4. Place to chill at night - The Pier.

This is the only place to chill and drink at night, by the beach.

There's also live band performance by The Resonanz (i hope i got the spelling right) where they sang pretty good oldies and love songs.


This small bottle cost almost RM17 fol.

Thank goodness we were smart enough to buy two big bottles and chips before we started our journey teehee!

So basically the trip is about relaxation. A good getaway just to spend some quality time with your love one. Plus, the deal is really really good. The CURRENT deal is even better.

The deal that we bought was RM188 WITHOUT free ATV or motorized bicycle ride. We have to fork out RM50 for the ATV hence, that makes our trip to RM 238. But the current deal is only RM198 including the ATV! Like damn freaking affordable right! 

Hurry! There's only two hours left!
(It was supposingly to end last night but the deal is still on so grab it quick!)

Btw, i have to mention this beforehand. I actually killed two flies in our room and during the dinner buffet, there were flies flying around the uncovered food. The noodles section especially. So just be alert. =)

Other than that, we actually have a great  time together. A lil' getaway from the busy city of KL is soooooooo good.

Just incase if you're wondering where this place is;

Gold Coast Morib Resort
PT 294, Kawasan Kanchong Laut, Morib Beach, 
42700 Banting, Selangor Darul Ehsan.

It is actually quite deep in. You needa go through kampung areas and tiny roads. I don't know if there is any newer road that leads to the resort but i suggest you to use GPS for shorter route in the kampung.

Try downloading Waze, we actually cut short our journey by 20+ KM. =)

Till then, i needa start packing again!

Have a good night!

With love,
