Away from city madness, retiring and waking up to the sound of a gushing river beside our tree house, and everywhere you look, you have greens staring right back at you. Breakfast spread lacks the variety offered by bigger establishment, but what they lack in variety, they are more than compensated with quality. The nasi lemak was delicious and the...

I first learned about this place from a Groupon offer. Although the offer didn't suit my needs, my curiosity was peeked enough to make me look up their website and oh boy did I ever like what I saw! The thing that really stuck out to me was the tree house. I couldn't pass up the chance to stay in...

Check in for my honeymoon. The wonderful thing about this villa is that it comes with a private jacuzzi. What can I say it's a great 'back to nature' stay, The environment is really good for those love nature with kinda open concept bathroom. You can plan your stay during fruit season so you can enjoy unlimited rambutan around your...

Every reviewer has done such an excellent job describing this corner of heaven that i really haven't got much new to add to it other than to "Thank you Meena and Peter, for being the most wonderful and attentive hosts that you are". Being a cleanliness freak that I am, I have to say your wooden chalets are immaculate. I...

Roots is a great choice for a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, away from the hustle-bustle of city life...there are about 15 chalets in total, of which the tree-houses are the best! The jacuzzi in the balcony is the cherry-on-top of the sundae, that the resort is :) There are several hammocks in the garden and sun decks placed close to...

If you are looking to get away for the weekend from busy KL, Roots can be a good choice. There are several reasons. Roots is a self-contained compound consisting of a few cottages. It is ideal for those who can self-entertain as it is located a few kilometers away from town. As the title indicated, the steam is an interesting...

A very quiet Resort specially designed for those wanting some peace away from the hectic city life . Laying on the sundeck and listening to the roar of the Kinta River would make a lot of difference compared to the sound of cars , horns etc . For city folks , it's the perfect place to de-stress .

I chose this place because I want to give my kids some different experiences from city life. In this sense, I would say the target was achieved. Basicly, the stay was within expectation. The room is clean, there is air-con in the room which makes the stay not too difficult. But there is no TV or wifi in the room...
