I loved the farm, the hosts and the beautiful setup. I'm not a durian lover so my review is solely on my stay. I had told them about my vegetarian diet and they offered me Roti Cenai as breakfast with some lemon cake and hot chocolate. Next day was breads. I was thoroughly happy with that. Very sweet family and staff. I stayed one day in passion Hut and one day in their Tatami room. Lets talk about the passion hut first. The view is mind-blowing with a great sunset. The room gets quite hot after 3 as the sun is directly shining on u. Even the moon is directly on ur face, late at night, which I don't mind at all. Bathroom is basic and as you can expect, sound travels a lot in the quiet farm, so be mindful of others. Since it is a farm, expect mosquitoes and insects, but there was repellant and stuff in the room. Thankfully I didn't need it. The tatami room however is totally budget. I had plans to extend my stay in passion hut but unfortunately that was sold out and I had to manage with tatami room. The toilets are shared and it was raining heavily that day so i wasn't really excited about leaving my room everytime to use the tiny little toilet. There is no space to leave your stuff so you carry it everytime with you. Room is quite small and lacks privacy so you have to keep your curtains closed. There is only a small hanger to put your things or bag. You can ask for a kettle, but it is pure budget. I would definitely come back again but not to stay in tatami room.

Come and experience the fresh and unique taste of durians straight from the trees in a very relaxing villa with pool facing beautiful sunset! In Penang there is a big place to see and get close with big butterflies! Enjoy viewing and hope this review helps in your travel plan!

Staffs were very friendly, helpful and considerate, they let us choose our room and provide us with halal breakfast. Our room was clean and even the shared bathroom is spotless minus the bugs that will accompany you while your'e showering. The view from the pool overlooking the durian farm is also stunning too.

If you're a die-hard durian lover, you'll love this place. Nestled along the slopes on the Balik Pulau-Teluk Bahang road, this farm supplies some of the best organic durians on the island. Go when the season is at its peak.

If you are durian lover or durian addict you will love this place. I visit this place in with my family in the early season of durian, but the durian that we get is awesome. We are stay for 1 night and we can get 2 durian tasting during our stay, first when we arrived and the second is during break fast. You can also have quick tour in the durian farm after breakfast, the owner will explain about his farm but unfortunately during my stay the owner explain it in mandarin and just a litle bit in english so I'm not really understand. Overall I would highly recommend this place for all durian lovers, because you can get best durian here.

There are 3types of Tour packages in this farm: stay&eat, half day pass (11-3pm) or 2hrs pass. I took the half day pass and did not regret at all. If you want to eat a 2hrs durian buffet, u can do it at any place in Penang at half the price (my driver told me he can bring me to cheaper durian buffet if I want). It’s just eat and eat durian. If you want to taste unique quality durian ie wine, honey, numb taste. You need the half day pass or stay and eat as they will reserve the special durian for you. But the 2hrs pass is good for time-tight travellers as I spent too much time eating durian that day. The owner wants me to eat so much unique durian that I have to beg him to stop giving me durian. I’m really full after eating different taste durian. The half day pass include walking around durian farm. Could have just stayed for a night as you will feel sleepy after eating so much durian. This place is very relax and no one will force u to go after 3pm. Some people hang around and relax after 3pm. But you will not feel like eating anymore durian as you are simply too full.

This is such a beautiful spot to come to for a stay. The views are amazing, the atmosphere so relaxing and our host Chee Wei and his foreigner worker did everything they could to make us comfortable (such a lovely guy as well). If you like dogs there are plenty to make friends with at this place. Dinner can be arranged at extra cost from the local Chinese (we did and it was at a reasonable price). Breakfast provided - with local hawker food depends on what the host can get, with his hand grounded black coffee. We visited off durian season hence not able to comments bout the durian. This is a homestay in the wood, pls don’t expect facilities like a 5 stars hotel that you have the Telly, buffet breakfast or a private bathroom. I would recommend to bring your own mosquito repellents as those are the insects you could expect in the wood, e.g. lizards and cockroaches. I rated this a 5 stars is not because of the facilities, it was based on my experience of the stay, quiet atmosphere and beautiful sunset right from our room. We had a great time catching up in our rooms. We will visit again when we come back to Penang. Thank you Chee Wei and his foreigner worker, you guys did great job to make sure we are comfortable, keep up the good work, hope to see you again.

Poor customer service. They asked me to contact them at 10am to see if they had durian. But they replied at 2pm on first day, no reply on second day, 9pm on third day. I finally didn't visit their farm during my Penang trip.

We heard about this, and decided to take a risk and drive out. Who knew that this place would be heaven on earth. Wide variety of durians, great quality and very well priced. You DO need a car to travel in here, so be sure to rent one.

Seven adults and three kids descended on this picturesque farm. The Durian buffet was great fun and we got to try 9 varieties of Durian. We especially enjoyed the hulu Durian and they were happy to top this up for us. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the durians and we all had a good time. They actually do farm stays here too and the lodgers helped out at the 'restaurant'. Delicious and well...burp.
