The best resorts with a private pool/jacuzzi in Malaysia in 2022:

Despite living in the metropolis, one needs not venture afar for a slice of Bali. Thoughtfully appointed to exacting Balinese architecture, Villa Samadhi is located mere minutes from the KLCC precinct yet reveals an impression that it is a world away from the hustle and bustle. Stay for the quaint, romantic ambience surrounded by greenery and cabanas. The property houses 9 Luxe Cribs. Each is lavishly fitted. For couples looking to share a private moment, the villa’s veranda is arrayed with an outdoor jacuzzi to untangle knots and smooth muscles.

Most unusual in its array of attractions – we mean it in the most flattering of ways – The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat delights the senses not only through its naturally sourced and mineral-rich water, but also the property is sequestered among soaring limestone hills. After rain, especially, misty clouds descend within touching distance of your suite and the spacious pool awaiting your enjoyment. Rather than putting on a pre-selected soundtrack, let nature’s symphony treat you to a concert to remember. You could also reserve a table and dine inside a cavern. What’s not to like?

Love can’t be measured in dollars and cents. But you can prove how highly you value your other half by booking the one-bedroom oceanfront villa complete with a private pool. Spacious and superbly furnished, the villa opens up to Andaman Sea thanks to an exclusive access to the golden-sanded beach. Should you wish to not join others in the dining hall, private dining can be arranged separately.
