As we enter the new year after behaving for the most part of the two years in various levels of Movement Control Orders (MCO), some of us might be feeling quite settled with our homey, hermit-y lifestyle.

But with Valentine’s Day and, of course, Galentine’s season looming, here are some of the best city staycation spots around Kuala Lumpur (KL) for a little change in pace and view. Best of all, they’ve got lots of in-house or nearby entertainment that will fit your every type of gal pal, starting from the most affordable to the most luxurious…

Let your inner tourist explore KL at Momo’s

Situated in Chow Kit and a short walk to the city centre, Momo’s is a wallet-friendly social hotel complete with a stylish satay bar and private parking. Their minimalist micro rooms all come with smart TVs, ambient lighting, and handcrafted artisan toiletries.

Instead of the traditional lobby, Momo’s boasts their Playground, a dynamic social space for you girls to hang out at and enjoy their lineup of fun, private events, and food pop-ups. Even if there isn’t an activity set for your selected dates, KL is your playground with Petrosains, Aquaria KLCC, the interactive haunted house Hauntu, and more, just a stone’s throw away from the hotel.

Sun and chill at Villa Samadhi

Some of the best times had with friends are the ones where we can just hang out and talk (and play insta-girlfriends, #OOTD anyone?). Now, if you’re looking for a nature-filled locale filled with ‘grammable spots, you best believe you can get it over at Villa Samadhi.

A private little nook in the city centre, Villa Samadhi is a peaceful sanctuary that preserves its lush, natural surroundings. The decor is inspired by traditional Malay architecture, with 21 distinctive villas designed to be raw, rustic, yet sophisticated. We’d get our phones out and ready because the outdoor lagoon pool that weaves through the entire resort makes it all the easier for those Instasnaps.
