I had been stayed at the Pavillion Villa for 3 days 2 nites (taking the RM780++ promotion) as a weekend breakaway from the busy city life in KL.
Despite all the negative comments other reviewers gave, I actually had a wonderful stay at the resort. From the moment I stepped into the lobby, the front desk staffs were like expecting our arrival which made us feel such warm welcoming.
Then we had a little ride on the buggy to our lovely room which made out of pinewood logs without any nails. I'm a nature lover & I just love the idea of the amazing log house. Our room has got pretty good speed of free wireless internet, although the bed was a bit hard for me but the pillows were soft & comfortable, with complimentary minibar & sandals, rain shower, reasonable size bathroom with bathtub etc. I had a good sleep on both nites, didn't actually heard any noise from the highway.
As the resort was quite busy during our stay, there wasn't any parking space left inside the compound. No choice I have to park outside. But I think it's pretty safe to park out there as there're CCTV around with security guard patrolling. I do admit it's kind of dark at nite. And what happened was on our 2nd nite, the reception actually called to our room telling me that they realized my car's window wasn't fully close & asked me if I'd need any assistance to close it. I think it's a nice touch there that they really take care of my car security.
Breakfast had got quite a good spread, u have bread & pastry counter, salad & cold cut, fruit & cheese counter, local & international hot dishes, & live cooking counter. What more can u ask for? Again, it was pretty busy the time we went for breakfast around 8.30am (I believed they have got a big group from HK were having breakfast at that same time). We couldn't get a table at 1st, but the staffs were helpful enough & managed to get us a table after about 10mins of waiting. He did apologize for if there's any delay of services. We were fine as at least the staffs were all very hospitable & they managed to get us what we requested. It's a good b'fast to start of our day to explore the historical city of malacca =)
Overall, I would give 8.5 out of 10 for our stay. Will definitely return...with friends & families =)
