|Philea Resort and Spa in Ayer Keroh, Melaka|
I believe every love birds love travel to somewhere relaxing and pamper themselves. So do I. Melaka is my hometown but I never know there is one luxury and huge resort which made of pine log hidden at Ayer Keroh until today. Philea Resort and Spa, Ayer Keroh is easily accessed when you come out from Ayer Keroh Toll, it is 30 minutes away from Melaka Town. I highly recommend you to have your own transport if you want to travel to town for some good street foods at Jonker Street or go to the infamous heritage area - Stadthuys (Red Square). You may wanna travel to the Butterfly Farm which is nearer to the hotel too.
Throughout the trip in Philea Resort and Spa, I would like to say this place is more suitable for family/couple tourist instead of business traveller. Although complementary WiFi was provided, the WiFi signal is not strong enough although you stay nearby the lobby area. Other than that, Philea Resort has a fascinating waterfall and swimming pool incorporated together for your outdoor activity. We had some fun activities inside the pool and I will share it in my next post (including a mini birthday bash).

|Philea Resort and Spa Layout Plan|
There are three types of room available at Philea Resort and Spa - Pavilion Room, Philea Suite and Royal Villa. If you are a couple going there for honeymoon, I recommend you to stay at Philea Suite (single floor and more private) as 4 Pavilion Rooms will combined as one villa which has 2 storeys. The sound proof is not that great for Pavilion Room especially if there are family with kids staying in the same block.
|Pavilion Villa |
Pavilion Room @ Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka
Four pavilion rooms forming the double storeys Pavilion Villa and the whole building is made up of pine log. Once you entered the room, you will able to smell the wooden scent within the room. There are two single beds inside the room, it is air-conditioned and have a fan as well. Got TV, fridge and kettle to boil water for coffee/tea.
They have decorated the room with a pair of towel-folded swans and rose petals on the beds and bath tub as well. Kindly scroll down for hotel room's photo:

|Royal Villa - A dipping pool right beside the villa, two beds for you to enjoy spa right outside your villa, a super spacious bathroom|
|Royal Villa - A living room with LCD TV, a jacuzzi inside the master bedroom, 2 king size beds in the same room|
|Philea Suite- A room that's suitable for couple who plan to have their honeymoon here|
Philea Suite is the suite that suitable for couple. The main attraction of this suite is the classic bath tub which placed right in the middle of the shower room and you can enjoy watching TV show while dipping inside the bath tub. Well, I didn't stay in this suite but you can imagine the romantic things you may do inside this suite hahaha!

|A 3 courses meal was served during our fine dining session|
Romantic fine dining outside your room
It was suppose to be a candle light fine dining session but that night wind were blowing strong throughout the whole night. Hence we used our handphone to illuminate the food so that we can see how it looks like before we eat them haha. The food overall layout was great, tasted not bad but I think the desserts overcast the main course. Four pieces of desserts versus the shared main dish, of course desserts win.
|ChillOut Bar @ Philea Resort Melaka|
After dinner, we went to the ChillOut Bar located right below the reception area, there is a DJ console inside the bar and you may order drink from the bar right at the center. Since it was smoky and dark inside the bar, some of us decided to sit outside and chit-chat with friends. Hopefully in future they have better air ventilation inside the ChillOut Bar.
|A selfie with blogger friends who staying at Philea Resort =) It was nice meeting you guys and chit-chat after so long!|
ChillOut Bar is a good place to hang out if you don't plan to sleep early. I prefer to sit outside as it smell much better and easier to talk to my friends. I had a great chat with buddies that night and hopefully we all can travel together again =D
|Tropic Lounges - A corner that serve you fresh fruit juice|
At Tropic Lounges, you can order fresh fruit juices from the bar where they pick the fruits displayed right beside you. Other than that, you can order coffee and enjoy a slice of cake for best combination.

Overall experience at Philea Resort and Spa Ayer Keroh, Melaka
Since I need to go back KL early the next morning, we went back to our room after saying good bye. In case you forgot how our room looks like, just scroll back up for it. The bed was soft but I didn't get to sleep well. Our room was very near to the ChillOut Bar and the music bass can be heard when you try to sleep. Hence, here's an advice: Stay further away from the Lobby/Bar area if you want to have a good night sleep. Take a buggy ride to your quite room is better than listening to unwanted noise unless you like to drink till the bar close haha.
Luckily after midnight it went quiet back and I manage to have a good rest. Early next morning, we had quick breakfast at Nusantara Restaurant where Nasi Lemak, porridge, fried mee, and many more local delicacies were served. I was rushing back to KL and witnessed a lady smashed her head into a watermelon
Philea Resort and Spa in Ayer Keroh, Melaka is a place for couple/family to relax themselves by staying in the greenery surrounded villa and enjoy spa/massage. The pine log hotel room is unique and definitely impress you at first look. I like the waterfall inspired swimming pool area as I love water flowing's sound that sooth your feeling.
If you wanna try out the delicacies in Melaka Town, it is only 30 minutes drive and you may drop by place like Jonker Street to travel. Other than that, you can drop by Melaka Animal Zoo and Butterfly Park for nature exploration.
If you prefer a quieter room, just ask the reservation counter for it for better private own time. At least somewhere further away from the ChillOut bar =) In overall, it was a good stay at Philea Resort and Spa, Melaka.
If you have any question, feel free to ask and I will reply you whenever I can. Cheers! For more information, please visit http://www.phileahotel.com.my.
