“Beauty is an all–pervading presence. It unfolds to the numberless flowers of the spring; it waves in the branches of the trees and the green blades of grass; it haunts the depths of the earth and the sea and gleams out in the hues of the shell and the precious stone.” And, how lucky it is for Malaysia to have such a long and varied coastline! Its beauty, accentuated by tropical rainforest, mountainous terrain, stunning beaches and colourful towns, attracts tourists from all over the world.
Many of its major cities including Johor Bahru, Kota Kinabalu and Malacca are located on or very close to the coastline. So it is only natural for the country to have an amazing appreciation for seaside style. The following twelve nautical rooms will prepare you to soak in the eternal song of the crashing waves. Enjoy…
