My room had two bunk beds and two regular beds, meaning a maximum of 6 people could stay in it, with our room having 4 people during our stay. I slept on a regular bed and for a 'budget' place like this I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable it was- it was like my bed back at home. However,...

We came to know of this amazing place called The Roots via a good friend who's been there. So we decided to check it out ourselves. Omg what a nice and refreshing change from the norm of an eco resort this was. I've been to a few Eco resorts around Malaysia and The Roots is one of the very "back...

Love the place. We were in the tree house and it was clean and comfortable. I am impressed that they had good water pressure in the showers and even hot water. The host had a wonderful spread of breakfast for us.

If you are a nature lover, this is the place for you. You gonna wake up every morning with cows and goats grazing grasses across the field. If your room provides you with jacuzzi, jump into it with your bubble bath. I bet you gonna feel like you are the most lucky person in the world above everyone else. Foods...

It's a very quite place in which is possible to re-connect with Nature. Just laying near the river reading a book or simply listenning to Nature's sounds, like bamboos moving or birds singing during the day. The tree houses are a child's dream made reality but with all the conforts you need! Everything was very clean. It was nice to...

We had a splendid family time in this newly discovered resort. Those who takes nature for granted & never appreciate life without tv / wifi (like my kids), will discover there's more to life than what city folks currently have by spending time here. This is a simple basic eco-resort which wooden chalets are surrounded by fruit trees and located...
