My visit to Sunway Hotel Georgetown after 10 years brought back an interesting memory as something strange happened when my party was leaving the property. We lost the car key, despite the owner insisting she’d seen it seconds earlier, while the presence of a crow perched on the bonnet, cawing its head off made it a tad freakish!
For the ultimate vacation, drop by JivaRhu Wellness & Beauty Retreat and indulge in the restorative powers of a traditional Malay massage. Lathering me with generous amounts of herbal oils, my therapist uses her thumbs and palms, and long calming strokes to gently induce blissful slumber. When I awaken an hour later, I feel refreshed and ready for a dip in the spa’s Jacuzzi. As I sip my ginger tea and bite into refreshing slices of watermelon, I enjoy the warm bubbles and ponder an extremely crucial matter – what shall I have for dinner?

Whatever your idea of a fantastic holiday may be, rest assured, it shall be delivered as the country celebrates Visit Malaysia Year 2014.

Between Borneo and Manila, there is an archipelago with a biodiversity that is virtually unmatched, both underwater and above. Robinson Crusoe would feel right at home here on this final frontier called Palawan. With a kayak, snorkel and hiking shoes, I cross this boundary and enter paradise.
