i've fallen in luv..

Dats me n my beloooooved sista the luckiest gal of all, Dania! Because this spectacular unique place is named after her. VILLA DANIALLA BEACH RESORT, TOK BALI, KELANTAN
It has all started 10 years ago when my parents bought this 8 and a half acres of land in Tok Bali which to be exact its at the border of Besut, Terengganu ..
Very long silky white sandy private beach with a remarkable view of Pulau Perhentian and Pulau Susudara... and it only takes 25minutes motorboat ride from the resort to Pulau Perhentian . ( the Russians are loving it so much , they will take a day trip to Perhentian for snorkeling and scuba diving and come back in the evening, cool init!)


ok, a glimpse of villa sarah.. a living room, 2 rooms and 2 bathrooms.. my lovely mum designed it in such a way to make people comfy and feel like its home.. just perfect for the whole family!




i have to put this picture of the standard 20 chalets bathrooms because i designed it! haha need the credits la! haha. black n white tiles modern design but a touch of sweetness with lacy curtains. so contradict! luv it! (poyo nye) :P




honestly, we don't really have a precise concept.. but i have to say.. this place is very Mediterranean.. this is the overview of one of the 20 rooms stretch chalets.. its very spacious.. using all the quality woods and other materials to serve the best for our guests!






the garden gazebo is just footsteps away in front of the chalets that gives u a peaceful feeling , very outdoor for chit chats while u can enjoy the beautiful green landscape. i love this place the most at night, very romantic feeling , by just looking up at those thousands shining stars in the sky..




next, is the villa haflin .. for v.v.i.p.'s.. a big bungalow lot with huge living room,huge kitchen, 2 rooms with a bathroom and a special suite on the upper floor.


the beach cafe

the right front beach cafe can fit 150-200 people approximately , as u can see.. we preserve all the trees surrounded by this building. very delicious f &b from local to western, u name it! and our special dish is the fresh fresh seafood barbeque! YUMMYYYYYYYY!

plus... private karaoke rooms on the upper floor of this building... jom karaoke!!!but seriously, i prefer to sing in front of the beach! its so cool.. very different feeling , i think feeling lebih kot! hahhaha!!!




again, its villa haflin! n dats the suite i was telling u guys! ok ok, i promote lebih cuz its my name.. hahahha! but u can actualy view the sea and the pulau's straight up from the balcony!!! romanticnye!!! (dream dream.. :D )






the garden gazebo
please observe the lower part of the picture... those are actually watermelon leaves! i'm serious!!!! u can see small medium watermelons along the landscape....





dewan fatimah
named after my grandmother ,a multipurpose hall, air conditioned that can fit about 1000 people is perfect for private functions, seminars, and weddings. very very classique.....



villa hamat is another extension of chalets that is 100% wood.. 11 unique rooms.. as my mum had passionately designed and build it .. to remain the Kelantanese culture and some part for tourist attractions and most of all for the memory of my late grandfather, Hamat..


time flies... from scratch and to where the resort is now.. its so hard to describe those feelings .. but for now its HOPE...
and i thank God, I've fallen in luv...
Escape to an intimate beach paradise...

hi haflin,

this is remi, nash's friend. what a wonderful resort that you have. i see a lot of potential in the resort. but personally, i think u need to hire good photographer to capture the romantic atmosphere that you mentioned and share it with the world.

gud luck haflin. god bless you.

Indigo Girl,
I have been on the road for five days straight and am now stuck in transit in some airport lounge thousands of miles from home. I decided to check out your blog and wow, what a sight for sore eyes.
Makes me want to quit working and retire on the beach (any job vacancies for a butler/beach bum/your PA?). I hope you get more and more visitors and not just dodgy Russian flight engineers...
East Coast of the Peninsula kicks ass. The water is so much nicer and clearer than the west. Your resort shows the amazing potential that Pantai Timur holds.
I like how your family has personalised everything and made it feel like home. Good taste and also clever use of local raw materials. Well done.
Good luck with the resort and don't forget to invite me one day. I may just end up working for you there!

Hi Lyn,

Dunno if you still recalls me whom complimented your luvly top on a birthday bash sometime back in bubbles lounge. Anyway, don't worry you'll look gorgeous in any outfit ;)

Aah.. the private resort is really breathtaking.. make me wanna wish a quick sweet escape from this concrete jungle we're surviving in! And the fact it's nearby perhentian island (my heaven on earth) it'll be nice to drop by at your lil hideaway when i make my next trip to east coast! Take care!

Hey Haflin, I've been to Tok Bali many many times, since my kampung is in Bachok & Kubang Kerian. Can't imagine there's a gorgeous place like that in Tok Bali..

Tok Bali is now Malaysia's own Bali!

Hi Haflin,

i juz view your family resort- Villa Daniella Beach Resort and it is totally beautiful. there is a villa captured my attention-Villa Hamat. I'm so in love with wooden house or anything to do with traditional and cultural. i was dreaming of having my wedding in traditional or kampung lookalike environment.it is possible for me to put villa hamat in my list in a way of making my dream come true?. i just really "teringin" nak buat wedding kat wooden house (rumah kampung) yang sangat cntik. n villa hamat TOTALLY CAPTURED MY INTEREST!
