If your idea of paradise is a luxurious resort that has everything you could possibly need, you certainly wouldn’t be alone. Whether it is for a week or even three, most people love to be pampered and simply relax in luxurious surroundings that are embedded into a natural setting. If you and your family would like to sample how the other half live, here is a guide to sourcing the perfect resort, and with some careful planning, it won’t have a millionaire’s price tag.

Resort Location

Although the facilities are enclosed within the resort itself, you still want to have a scenic backdrop, and preferably in a cooler climate. If you are based in Malaysia, for example, it would be perfect to look for the location of a hotel in Genting, as this elevated region offers spectacular views and is much cooler, due to its elevation. The region has some amazing hiking trails, and with so many local attractions, it makes for an ideal retreat where you can really get away from it all.

Early Booking

Planning a dream holiday like this should be done well in advance, if at all possible, as once you have found the ideal resort, you can be sure of a low price if you book early. The Internet is your ideal partner in your quest for resort perfection, and with a few Goggle searches, you should have narrowed it down to a few potential venues. This is not a budget holiday, and you would ideally be looking at high end luxury accommodation, which can be secured at a reasonable price if you book well in advance. Out of season brings even lower rates, and if the climate is warm, why not enjoy the season? Of course, there are occasions when it is a spur of the moment thing, and you can start to search for late deals, or possibly look for a unique cottage that is fully self-contained.

Five Star Service

This is what makes the experience special, and with professional service, whatever you require is but a call away, and aside from that, you and your partner have complete privacy in luxurious surroundings. The amenities one would expect to see in a 5-star resort would include the following:

  • Spa and sauna
  • Fitness Room
  • Indoor and outdoor pool
  • Restaurants and bars
  • 24-hour room service

Typically, this type of resort would have aromatherapy and massage services, and with the well-being of the guests a priority, everything would be perfect.


If a resort doesn’t tick all the boxes and you and your partner would prefer something more secluded, there are luxury serviced cottages with all the mod cons, and if you have a car, then you can always go sightseeing if the fancy takes you.

Online solutions will help you to narrow down your search, and if you book early enough, the cost will not be much higher than a standard hotel.
