It was a 30-minute journey from Jipun Char Kuey Teow to Gold Coast Morib Resort. By the time we arrived, it was about 2PM. The sun shone so ever brightly that it almost blinded my eyes. Parking space is located behind the resort and it was pretty ample as we managed to get a car park without much circling. From the entrance to the check-in counter, it was like a maze that one can easily get lost here.
Guess our organiser, Bernard, had got things covered. He led us straight to the lobby and got us our apartments in jiffy. Each apartment can accommodate 5 pax and it summed up to about RM130 each, inclusive of breakfast.
The corridor leading to our rooms
The resort was considerably new, judging by the paints and grills. Don't get me wrong, there was no smell of paints at all. Plus, the corridor was almost squeaky clean. The flooring, decor and color scheme., I liked them all.
Helo, our living room :)
The guys got themselves an apartment, while us girls got ourselves another. Unlocking the main door, what greeted us was this warmly lit living room. Simple, yet homely, I want my house like this too! Oh, didn't I tell you that I like full length glass panel too?
My room (with attached bathroom)
The smell of new furniture couldn't be wrong; the bed sheet smelled fresh, albeit I would like a little lemongrass scent. There were three rooms in an apartment; two like mine, another with a single bed but unconditioned. If you asked me, they shouldn't have skimped on another unit of air conditioning for this tiny room. Ask yourself, if you had a group of 5, who will take that room?
The white basin with toiletries
The room I shared was the only room with attached bathroom. Do pardon me for I have always wanted a basin like this, white and deep, just like a bowl. Toiletries was provided but I would prefer hotels or resorts to go eco way; instead of providing small bottles of toiletries, I seriously wouldn't mind shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers.
Rain shower, shall we?
The sight of rain shower was delighting. However appearance alone wasn't suffice. The moment you stepped into the rain shower, preparing to let the rain fall on your body, you are so going to WTH so seriously. The shower was barely of any strength. Seriously, dear management of Gold Coast Morib Resort, this was not making it any better. Oh, not forgetting the toilet bowl too. It was not functioning properly after a few flush. Urgh, I wouldn't even want to paint that ugly picture to you.
The Garden View from our room
Those aside, our room shared a pretty decent view too. Look at the sea and the old-fashioned Malay booths for one to smoke with a friend or two. Hmm, perhaps it is not so much of an Asian kind of thing but yea, you have got my point.
Located next to be beach, The Venue is one of the restaurants in Gold Coast Morib Resort, where I had my breakfast on Day 2 (I would talk about it later okay?).
The Pier Restaurant
As for The Pier Restaurant, I really have no clue but it seemed like a night pub by the sea. Personally, I feel that it would be good to sit by the seaside and enjoy a beer or two and chit chat with friends. Don't you think so?
In the meanwhile, I shall retreat to my bed and chill. See ya soon!
