AVANI Sepang Goldcoast Resort, Malaysia

Located on the West coast of Malaysia on Sepang’s 13 mile shore, Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort is a unique overwater bungalow resort. 315 overwater villas arranged in the shape of a palm tree face the sheltered waters of the straits of Malacca.

Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort, Malaysia


The resort offers stilted villas in one, two, and three-bedroom sizes and its easily accessible location and low room rates (starting at $103 USD per night) make it a crazy good deal for an overwater bungalow resort. However it’s not quite like the Tahiti overwater bungalows you might envision. The lowest category room is located in a two story overwater building, so you’ll have either an upstairs or downstairs neighbor. Higher category villas are single room per building. Villas are very clean and modern with sleep wood furnishings and modern amenities. No Polynesian style decor here! 


Activities at the resort are plentiful. Enjoy the water on a banana boat, donut, flying fish or kayak. Stay dry on land with beach Segways, kids beach ATVs, a bungee trampoline, bicycle tours around the local area, and family beach games. There’s a kid’s club with daily programming and includes a trampoline and bouncy castle along with the typical pool fun and arts and crafts. For a truly jaw-dropping experience, the nightly fire dance at the Smiley Beach infinity pool is not to be missed.


The resort offers five restaurants, centrally located in the trunk of the palm tree. Sepoi Sepoi is a cafe with local and western food in casual atmosphere. Bila Bila, which means “anytime”, offers an all-day international menu. Hai Sang Lou is Chinese fine dining restaurant and Stimbot serves up Oriental specialties. Beachfront restaurant Perahu has local and global flavors and is a superb sunset dining experience. Pool and beachside bars offer refreshments and Pantry @ Avani serves snacks and desserts in the resort’s lobby.

Enjoy a private balcony dinner for two (either Asian or Western multi-course menus) or a sunset coconut cocktail experience (a personalized class on the beach learning how to make your favorite cocktail during sunset).


Experience the restorative powers of ancient Malay wellness  at AVANISPA. Their signature massage, Malay Urut, is a traditional Malaysian massage that will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.


With beachfront or tropical wedding ceremony locations and one of one of Malaysia’s biggest beachfront ballrooms, seating up to 1,400 people, Avani Sepgang Goldcoast Resort is a unique international option for couples with large guest lists.
