Spa Retreat @ Cyberview Lodge

This is quite an anticipated weekend. Besides the long holidays of Chinese New Year, I finally get a spa retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life courtesy of my youngest sister. It was RM670 for a night's stay with a spa for two. This is the birthday pressie she was telling me about!



At 3.30pm on Saturday, after a heavy "Yan Yat" (everyone's birthday on the Chinese Lunar calendar) lunch, we set off our journey to Cyberview Lodge Resort & Spa in Cyberjaya. With the help of my GPS, we did not get lost and managed to check in by 4.30pm. Since it was a spa package with room stay, our appointment for the spa starts at 5pm.

The hotel is really a very nice place for a getaway because it's situated in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by lush greenery. The rooms are like the chalet style and the room that we had was just beside the spa and we could even park our cars right in front of our room!


When I grow up, I want a bed like this...

The room is big and comes with a kitchenette. The sliding doors opened up to a lake view with a big water fountain. It's just so relaxing and comfortable hanging out in the room. A few amenities like hairdryer, iron, fridge with a minibar and a computer is provided! That means, I get to play FB while I'm in the room! Then a lady rang our doorbell and delivered a teddy bear and some chocolates. How wonderful!


Sembunyi Spa - Hideaway for mind, body and soul

Soon, it's time for spa!!! We both were asked what type of massage we prefer and both of us went for the balinese massage. Then, we get to choose the massage oil as well. Yiling went for the ginger oil and I took the rose oil. After that, we were served some ginger tea and a wet towel to refresh ourselves before the lady took us to the changing room and showed us around.



After changing into the batik wrap, we were ushered into the massage rooms to have our massages. It was very relaxing and the ambience in the room was so comfortable that it lulled me to sleep. Not long after that, it was time to wake up and we were given a cup of tea with some jelly to feast on. Then, Yiling and I went for a sauna and baked ourselves for 15 minutes before adjourning to the steam room. The last indulgence was the jacuzzi. The water pressure was high enough and there was a nice view of the lake too!

At night, the hotel provides a shuttle van to Alamanda and we took that to have our dinner there. Yiling has Pizza Hut vouchers and so I got a free meal! Yay...

The next day, we almost couldn't wake up for the breakfast.


The sumptious breakfast spread!


After breakfast, we did some exploring and took some really nice photographs. Oh well, we don't get to come here often and so why not make the best out of our stay here?!!


The jumping shots


The chilling out on the hammock...


The surroundings is really impressive. I absolutely heart the swimming pool because it has a cool water fall! There is so much of greenery around and it's like staying in a forest resort. I think this place is really a perfect getaway for a weekend. Right now, I'll go back and work hard so that I can afford another stay here. Btw, Yiling has hinted her coming birthday pressie... Thanks Yiling!!!
