avani sepang goldcoast resort blog

avani sepang goldcoast resort blogA last minute trip I had recently taken led me into an unexpected short gateway in Sepang, staying in an overwater villa at the five star Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort. It is one of the places on my bucket list I want to do while staying in Malaysia. Located approximately 33 km or about 40 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), this resort often to be the last place for tourists to go before they leave the city. Similar to my friend who spent his last night here before his return that introduced me to this resort for the first time.

If you drive your own car, it will be easy to reach the resort and explore Sepang area. However, if you do not drive, you can always book a Grab or Uber to go to this resort with a cheaper fare than a taxi (it will cost about RM 70++ from KLIA/KLIA2 and RM 120++ from Kuala Lumpur).

Staying at Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort

Avani Sepang Goldcoast is also well known as Golden Palm Tree resort due to the unique design resembling a palm tree that can only be seen from above either with a drone or by plane (make sure to bring your drone if you have one).

Upon check in and getting a room card, there is a buggy service in the lobby that will give you a ride to the room. Our room was just a few blocks away and I only had one small luggage with me so instead of waiting for the buggy, we decided to walk to the room. If your room is way off from the lobby or you have many belongings with you, it is a better choice to wait for the buggy service.

We stayed in a superior room for the trip and the room is really spacious which comes with private balcony or terrace which is a perfect spot to enjoy the morning or afternoon view with a cup of tea.

Eating at Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort

There are 2 bars and 5 restaurants around Avani Serpang Goldcoast Resort that offer a variety of foods from local to international food. Frankly speaking, the food was okay and quite overprice so if you are tight with your budget, I will suggest to bring outside food along (such as instant noodles) during your stay

1. Sepoi Sepoi

Located outside Avani resort and serves local Malaysian food and western food. We had our lunch here. We ordered the Avani Beef Burger and Pasta. The food was alright but nothing special.

 2. Bila Bila

Bila Bila is the restaurant you will be heading to if you pay for the breakfast during your stay. It served local and western foods in a buffet and ala carte style. We had our buffet lunch here and it cost around Rm 50/ person.

3. Hai Sang Lou

If you are up for Chinese food, this restaurant is where you should go. It is located one level up from Bila Bila.

4. Stimbot

If you are looking for Chinese seafood steamboat during your stay, Stimbot will be the right restaurant for you.

5. Perahu

Perahu is the international seafood grilled style restaurant. It is a beachfront dining place in Avani Resort that will be a good place to enjoy the sunset. We had our dinner here and we had a lobster as our meal. It was delicious but it was not cheap.

    Hi, just drop by to ask is there any charges for the heart shaped petals on bed? 😉

      Hi Siti, Sorry for my very late reply. The simple heart petal in the picture was actually arranged by my boyfriend himself. Avani does have decoration arrangement (Heart Shape Flower Petal on Bed) for around Rm 117 (not sure still the same price). You may email them for further info and sample pics at [email protected] 🙂
