Birthday at AVANI Sepang Gold Coast Resort

For our birthdays...yup..ours as in Papa's and mine, we went for a short staycation at AVANI Sepang Gold Coast Resort.

Got a free stay from there. Not due to blogging . They invited Papa to go listen to their Vacation Club programme and gave him a one night stay voucher. However, the voucher stated tat it is not applicable for weekend, public holidays and school holidays. That leaves not many dates that we can choose from. Well, ngum ngum our birthday falls on Chinese New Year and school extended holiday for us. 

Well, Papa tried to book the date for our stay la. E-mailed them early but after two week still no reply from them. Called up the number given in the voucher, nobody pick up the line. 

Mamarazzi google and found another number which is not stated in the voucher. Called up that number and yahoo...someone pick-up.  

It seems that the person-in-charge missed out reading Papa's email or something. On the same day, he received reply from their customer service. So sad...the date we wanted was not available. 

Funny thing about the e-mail was it was dated 9th February but at the bottom there , the man asked Papa to reply his email before 6th February. Must have been a typo error as Papa could never foreseen to reply an e-mail that have not been sent out, right? Anyway, Papa replied and Mamarazzi called up. The guy-in-charge was busy. She left a message for him to read Papa's email .


Waited 3 days....this time Papa shoot a not so polite e-mail to them liao. Mamarazzi called up and managed to get the guy-in-charge. Surprise..surprise...there was a cancellation and now there is a room available for us. Hmm.....could it be the saying "good things comes to those who waits?"


 On my birthday, Papa and Mamarazzi surprised me by saying that they are bringing me to stay in a hotel. Yup...I have been asking them to bring me stay in hotel for sometime.

The room was lovely. Splendid view. Big flat screen TV

 Very spacious. Just nice for a family stay. 

 Outside was pretty windy. 

 You know what? They even have bicycle for their guests to use as each of the villas are quite far from the Lobby and Club house. Guests can opt to take the buggy or they can cycle around.

After checking-in, I drag Mamarazzi out of our villa for cycling. Kinda sad coz all the kids bicycle doesn't have training wheels. Mamarazzi said it's alright. It's quite low. She'll help me to balance. She sat behind of me while I "kayuh"(pedal) . Yup.....I had to carry Mamarazzi heavy bum behind of me.

Pretty soon, she jump of the cycle and HEY! I can cycle! WITHOUT training wheel. At first it was wobbly and pretty soon I was zooming around so fast till Mamarazzi couldn't catch up with me.

Yay! on my 7th birthday, I learnt how to cycle without training wheel!

 Sweat....cycling really work up a sweat. I wanted to jump into the infinity swimming pool there but Mamarazzi said no swimming suit cannot.

 That night I really enjoyed myself oh. Since it;s my birthday, I can watch unlimited time of TV and play unlimited games in the new Galaxy Tab.

 Got delicious Nasi Lemak. 

 Which I ate in bed. Pampered to the max. 

 Next morning, I drag Mamarazzi up early. I wanna go cycling again. Mamarazzi pulak dragged Papa up. He had to follow us.

 Come , let's explore. 

 There are mini cricket place for the kids to play with. 

 Trampoline.

 Golf 

 Errrrrr....kucing korek lubang nak poo poo......

 Nice place to be. Bet in the evening there will be loads of games to play. 

 Before going off, Mamarazzi "forced" me to snap some photos...ahem...not macho la......why snap photos with flowers....

 Forced smile. 

 Ah...this one I like........ambulance buggy....bee bo bee boo...

 Pretty soon it was time to check out. I'll miss this place. Really fun place to be . Mamarazzi's feedback is that they need to hire more people to man the telephone and reply e-mails. And in their Free Stay voucher they should also put in more than one phone number. Unanswered phone and e-mails may lead to people thinking that this Vacation Club is just another scam and gives bad reputation to the company.

    1. Their telephone/email booking department need to be more proactive and maybe hire more people to attend to the job.

      As for the resort...it was good

  9. adui, really lousy service lah, nobody to pick up calls and then took them more than two weeks to reply the email.. and it's their mistake to overlook the email and caused there to be no room available!! Paparazzi booked two weeks in advanced, and they should have upgrade Paparazzi for a suite for no extra cost lah, somemore it's just a normal weekdays, unlikely that all rooms are taken dei.. really, got to be harsh then baru they will do something.. like the Chinese say, "tiger not ganas don't treat them as sick cat".. hahahaha!!!

    1. Must be they have not enough people jaga the online booking and telephone la. Need to improve on that lor or else sure kena people complaint upside down

  10. frankly, if they are having such giveaway, I am pretty sure the hotel has very low occupancy lah.. if rooms selling like hotcakes, then they will never even need to organize talks and then lure people to go there by giving free stay lah.. just my humble opinion.. that's why, sometimes when it boils us up, they can't really blame us for being rude lah.. because only when we raise our voice then they will only do something to find alternatives.. pretty lousy customer service dei..

  22. I saw that you mentioned you have a cough (on another blog) and were asking for a recipe for a cough. I sometimes make a hot cup of tea using fresh ginger...and add a little honey, this helps me a lot. Hope your cough heals quickly.
