A Klang Valley Staycation at Amverton Cove

So living in a city can be hectic, sometimes you just want to get away – but you don’t really want to drive for hours or take a flight. That’s where the whole concept of Staycation (stay+vacation) comes in, which is basically having a holiday in your own city or nearby (in this case still within the Klang Valley).

This time we checked out Amverton Cove at Pulau Carey (Carey Island) which is an island located south of Port Klang and North of Banting.

Amverton Cove Golf & Island Resort is a secluded and peaceful all-in-one golfing getaway with resort facilities. It’s family friendly, with plenty of recreational facilities and a good mix of accommodation types including standard rooms, suites and chalets.

It had been raining for days with grey overcast skies, so we were super glad the morning we woke up was sunny, bright and it looked to be a good weekend ahead. The drive there was a little jammed as it was long weekend, but once past the airport it was pretty clear all the way.

Our little man Liam was pretty happy on the way too, as he wanted to get out of the city as well.

We reached the resort around lunch-time and checked in, service was prompt and polite and we met the general manager David who was extremely helpful through-out our stay.

The room was clean and spacious with a bathtub and shower with a king size bed, TV, fridge and they even provided a cot for Liam.

We had the set lunch at the golf-course restaurant which was delicious, the eggplant was amazing! It came with a fish-head curry, mixed vegetables and an omelette.

I still remember this dish, that’s how good it was!

It’s a lovely open restaurant too with a view of the lake, the Animal Island and the golf course.

After lunch we went for a tour around the resort, which included checking out the facilities.

They have archery, paintball, ATV and an obstacle course with 14 elements which is ideal for team building. It’s a good place to consider for company team retreats, they have meeting rooms and indoor facilities too + some great kit for team building exercises. The max capacity of the resort would be around 190 people if you want to book the whole place.

The obstacle course looks pretty impressive with a large flying fox as the centrepiece. Minimum 10 pax if you want to have a go with your friends and family.

There’s a spa too, so you can have a massage after all that hard work πŸ˜€

And of course, the highlight of any staycation for us is the POOL! And Amverton Cove didn’t disappoint in that aspect, with a large pool including a water slide and a lovely view of the golf course.

After a nap and a recharge we decided to go and check out the Animal Island, of course we got ferried to the boat ride in a buggy, because it’s fun.

I was really glad to see appropriate life jackets for a kid Liam’s age – pretty unusual to see proper safety equipment in Malaysia – I was impressed.

Liam was too shiok with the wind in his face.

Look at that face.

He had a great time on the Animal Island, I think he’s finally at the age where he can kinda understand what’s going on with animals and appreciate seeing something new and interesting.

He was really fascinated by the Macaque monkeys.

And you can go inside the rabbit area, he was really excited in there.

Of course everywhere we went, he still needed his trusty cornflakes.

They also have a really well equipped, large play zone for younger kids – pretty impressive actually and very well maintained. Every time we walked past, Liam wanted to go in. So eventually we did and he had a great time!

Of course, because of the area there’s plenty of good food around, we headed to a restaurant called Kang Guan which is still in Pulau Carey so only around 10-15 mins drive from the resort – well in range for lunch.

The portions are generous, lovely fresh seafood and shellfish, really nice drinks (in massive jugs!) and well-priced.

Definitely worth a look for lunch/dinner if you’re in the area.Kang Guan Seafood Restaurant

All in all we had a great weekend away at Pulau Carey and I can recommend Amverton Cove for those wanting to have a break without going too far, it’s about a 50-60 minute drive from Bandar Sri Damansara and fairly straight-forwards with the SKVE. It’s marked on Google Maps and Waze and the location information was accurate too.

It’s a relaxing place with lovely clean, fresh air, plenty of things to do, great food nearby and excellent service. Thanks to David and his team for their excellent hospitality.
