Avani Launches Sepang GoldCoast Resort

Avani Hotels & Resorts, the upscale brand launched by Thailand-based Minor Hotel Group in 2011, has added its fifth property – Avani Sepang GoldCoast Resort in Malaysia. The resort is located on the country’s west coast in the state of Selangor, close to Sepang International Circuit – home to the Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix – and 45 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

Formerly operating as Golden Palm Tree Iconic Resort & Spa, the resort has a distinctive design in the shape of a palm tree and has relaunched under the Avani flag following completion of the first of two phases of a total MYR 15 million refurbishment programme. Facilities include five restaurants and two bars, a spa, an extensive selection of activities, and an 840 square metre ballroom.

Set along Sepang GoldCoast’s 22km shore, the resort has a mainland beachfront setting with lush gardens and a palm structure built on stilts that extends over warm shallow waters. The overwater palm features 392 contemporary Polynesian-inspired guest rooms and one, two and three bedroom villas, all with a sea view.

Guests can hop on a buggy to travel around the resort and take the complimentary daily shuttle bus to Kuala Lumpur for a day of shopping and sightseeing. A range of local tours are available, including a mangrove river cruise and visits to a local village to delve into rural life. Guided excursions to the up and coming modern city of Putrajaya, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Historical Malacca and Kuala Lumpur introduce travellers to the region’s heritage highlights.

    I will be going to the Golden Palm Resort. Please advise: can I take a free shuttle from KL or the airport to Avani? Thanks.

    Hi Michael. The Avani Sepang GoldCoast Resort provides a complimentary daily shuttle service between the resort and KL city centre, departing the resort each morning at 8.30am, then departing central KL at 5.00pm to return to the resort. A limo service can be booked between KLIA and the resort at the rate of MYR 150 nett per car per way. Please note that the resort is no longer operating as Golden Palmtree.
