Can't believe this place was opened since 11 years ago. The wooden barns are all well kept. The view of the city is just breath taking. We booked 3 barns, two with sunset view and one with sunrise view. Each barn has its own design and decoration. There is an 1-hour hiking trail. The manager and the workers here are really friendly, and helpful.

Room Tip: Depending on which view you like. You can choose the barn with sunset or sunrise view. You can find these information from their homepage.

A well kept place. It is a hidden gem here in Penang. The view of the city here is breath taking and we had an amazing night view from our room.

The bed is soft and comfortable. The shower and hot water is to die for. The 2 things I ask for when I am away from home and they have it here.

The staffs here are attentive to our needs and the level of service is brilliant.

My wife and I stayed at Malihom for 3 nights and we were delighted by this place. It offers fantastic views to both sides of the island which provides great sunrise and sunset contemplation. The staff is amazingly friendly. The barns are in very good condition and the outdoor bathrooms are so nice (if you like being outside and close to nature).
The food is good but not amazing although the hotel Manager offered us one evening to have a special Burmese dinner which was really great.
The swimming pool area as well as the restaurant/bar area are so quiet and relaxing.

I would definitely recommend the place to anyone wishing to enjoy a peaceful jungle retreat. Note that the hotel is located on top of a hill, quiet far from Georgetown and that taxi rides are expensive! Expect 75 ringit for a ride to the airport, 90 ringit for a ride to Georgetown.
Important note: the Wifi connection offered in the hotel is VERY bad. Do not expect to be able to do some serious internet surfing...facebook barely loads.

It was a getaway with my family and we were the only family on that day. Had the entire resort to ourselves and we loved the view from the resort. The staffs were attentive and helpful. The drive up to the resort was very narrow and steep. Would recommend guests to park at the bottom of the hill and get the resort to pick you. The resort is quite a distant from Penang town and the attractions. This place is purely for retreat.
