Malaysia’s JapaMala takes the appeal of “getting away from it all” to a new level, one that involves nothing but sun, sand, sea, and pleasure.

Too much to do and not enough time to do it… sound familiar? One has to ask oneself: when and why did this approach to life become so common? Whatever the reason, one thing is for certain: the best antidote for an overly busy existence is a vacation that lets you do exactly the opposite: nothing at all.

Not many resorts can or should make doing nothing look and feel as attractive as JapaMala does. Of course, the stunning natural Malaysian surroundings might have something to do with that. Then there are the rooms ('Sarang' in Malay, 'nest' in English). Wooden houses, hillside sarangs, and beachside villas are ripe for the picking so choose between Treetop Chalets, Seacliff Chalets, Jungle Luxe Sarang, Hillside Sarang, Seaview Sarang, and Penghulu’s House.

Pick accommodations with a private plunge pool if possible, dine on delicious fare at two impressive restaurants, escape to the spa, and explore by kayak. Oh yes, and don’t forget… to do nothing at all at JapaMala.
