A Short Getaway At Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa

palm trees, waterfall and lots of privacy

Two weeks ago, me & my buddies went on a short trip to Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa, Cyberjaya. We all needed the break and two of our buddies are having their birthdays this month. Celebrating it together would be meaningful, it was the first time all 4 of us survived a night together out in the "nature". Just an hour's drive from KL, Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa was a beautiful tropical paradise hidden away from the city. A 5 star boutique resort with award winning landscape gardens, many blushing brides held their garden weddings here.

our deluxe chalet, simply beautiful

A night's stay in a deluxe chalet can cost up to RM1.5k but if you're lucky, you can get the online promotions for as low as RM288++ onwards. Our stay was sponsored by Olay Malaysia (big mucho gracias!). The room was big enough for a family to stay in. The king sized bed was huge but the room was not sound proof to my liking. We could hear everything from the bathroom till the neighbors next door. Honeymooners better get the private suites if they don't want to be heard at night.

we spent most of time at Sembunyi Spa

Of course the highlight of the trip was to unwind and relax at Sembunyi Spa (hidden spa). I read many good reviews about this place and here we are finally at it's doorsteps. It's a small luxury spa tucked away outside the resort. The reception is small but serves its purpose. You can smell lemongrass in the air, thanks to the oils on the counter. The friendly lady helped us get ready and was really accommodating to our needs. At first we were indecisive over what to do - the monthly promotion or the combined treatment package in the menu? It wasn't your local spa that costs under a hundred. Camie and Wing had the Massage with Pedicure (RM300++ per pax for 2hrs) while me and Kenby opted for the Body Treatment combo (RM258++ per pax for 2hrs massage, scrub and wrap) It was time to treat ourselves something nice for a change. Price ranges from RM120++ onwards. An hour's massage cost RM160++. Click here for spa prices.

my massage room

For recommendation, Sembunyi Spa is popular for their Balinese Massage and the Island Dream Scrub (suitable for all skin types). The Island Dream Scrub uses the "Manggir Scrub" which has coconut powder inside. For my full body session, I choose the Aromatherapy Massage instead of Balinese (afraid of pain). The masseuse used the lemon grass oil I choose and slowly in soft long strokes, massage me to sleep. After an hour, I awoke to the fruity smell of the Island Dream scrub. My whole body was scrub from back to front (even my boobs). Next yogurt with earth and petal mask where I was wrapped and left to sleep for another 1/2 hour. When I meet my friends back, they raved on and on about how great the Balinese Massage was. Kenby said it was the best massage she ever tried. Buaya Wing said it wasn't painful and that I would love it. Dam already I am regretting. Can it be as good as the massage I received at Spa Village, Pangkor Laut?

Guests of the resort can use the spa facilities here anytime while outsiders are required to either purchase a main treatment or pay spa entry fee in order to enter the area. When inside, the gym, jacuzzi, ice pool, sauna and steam rooms, and swimming pool can be enjoyed from 10am - 10pm. You can use the facilities either before or after your spa treatments. 

finish everything at 9pm

birthday celebration at night

After our spa we headed to Alamanda, Putrajaya for dinner. It was a 15-20mins drive away. We came back again to the resort pass 11pm, watched a romantic Thai comedy and then light up the candles on the cupcakes to wish the girls Happy Birthday. An enjoyable day, I would love to go back again and try the Balinese Massage for a change.
