3, 4, 5 …

BY SHOBIE MALANI, Founder of MURFEST

When you think of MURFEST what comes to your mind? Wellness? Music? Dance? Yoga? Fitness? The good news is that you don’t have to choose- it’s all of those. And much more.

You just need to remember the numbers 3, 4, and 5! You’ll find out why very soon.

 First the MURFEST dates for 2017 are in November – 3rd, 4th and 5th (or 3-5 for convenience).

Why 3?
The number also stands for the three days of MURFEST, your Urban Weekend Retreat in Malaysia! In keeping with its mission and vision, MURFEST aims to reach out especially to people living in cities, a.k.a. the urban abode, and provide them with a retreat-like atmosphere, yet one accessible without much travelling.

This year MURFEST returns to another iconic Putrajaya hotel – the Le Meridien Putrajaya – and for those coming in to KL from outside of Malaysia, you’ll be happy to know the Le Meridien Putrajaya is quite close to the airport. It’s just hours by road for Singaporeans.

Why 4?

 This year we’re celebrating MURFEST’s fourth year since its inception in 2014. And we’re revving it up by sprinkling in new elements, and also bringing back some hot favourites (because why fix what isn’t broken!)

What’s GloKL? No matter how tired you might get during the day at the workshops, once you hear the DJ spinning you’re going to find your body gravitating to sexy Latin beats. How could you possibly miss an experience like that? And that’s on Day 2! Have a blast at Salsation Fitness Dance Party, and yes it’s gonna get into the Malaysian Book of Records..!

 This year we’re also launching Masterclasses which are taught by highly qualified and experienced instructors in an intense 2-hour workshop format after which participants receive a certification. There’s the usual potpourri of more than 80+ different workshops ranging from pilates to yoga to dance and healing sessions as well as our JustBE markets showcasing not just organic but environmentally sustainable products. Besides just stocking up on must-have oils, soaps and workout gear, this is where you can also grab a quick juice or snack between classes.

 Finally, why 5?
Think 5-star because we wouldn’t want to offer our participants anything less than a 5-star hospitality. But it’s not just because you’ll be staying at a 5-star hotel: MURFEST is a 5-star experience, right from the moment you step on to the grounds of the Le Meriden all the way until Day 3 where we traditionally end with a drum circle. It’s 5-star service by a 5-star team with a 5-star attitude.
