Anugraha - Pulai Springs Resort, Skudai, Johore

The beautiful golf course from our balcony.
Driving is a chore. And I am not good at it. But the reward of this drive held great promise. So I soldiered on. If needed a Tiger Balm is nearby to renew my senses. This huge resort boasts some of the best restaurant, golf course and suites around. It is also children friendly.

However, after 8pm there were insufficient nocturnal activities organized to make this place come alive with the intention of expanding sales on the F & B. It kind of shut down and corridors and footpaths get dark and creepy. You need to get the resort staff to organized a buggy ride home. You can zip from A to B in no time. In fact buggy ride is the norm for those who don't like to walk.

So where does most of the Malaysian and Singaporean guests go to at night? No prize for getting it right. We loved to go out to sample the night life. Driving downtown JB was less than 20 mins at night.
Caught this Singapore-plated Rolls-Royce at the resort! That is driving in style.
Anugraha is sequestered on the fringe of this property and very near to the golf course. No kids (Primary school) allowed. A mix of modern motifs wall papers and rich wood paneled walls and flooring.
A huge Panasonic Veira with Kardon DVD player and sound system and my son cannot be separated from his Ibanez and Line 6 tech machine.Fruits plate and frangipani and nice table wares.Roman blinds and wood framed windows.Daily tea delivered to our room - Western cheese cakes or chocolates together with local kueh.Slide the door to reveal the luxurious bathroom.Bath stall in glass, bathtub, long and elegant marble counter top, embraced by the warm marble walls with shelf stocked with spa toiletries.

You do have the lifestyle of the well heeled aka cross country greenery , visual landscape pampering , good bed and breakfast !

In case your next expeditions fall again onto your laps and you are short of an X factor, you just might need BSG to take you into that extra level ! Who knows

wow, back when i was studying in the uni nearby, this was still very much under construction. i guess they must have fully developed the resort by now.

Selba... Only the ladies know how to enjoy a good bathroom!

BSG... My favourite past-times when away are eating, resting and sleeping... is there a next level:)

Nic... UTM has led the way for Skudai development. The roads system here is very good with good interchanges.
