If you want to stay in a place worst than a homeless shelter this is your experience. Roten and brown mattress with a terrible access to facilities and no working internet. There are way better places in the area for a better price.

De'Native Guest House is a newly opened guest house located on a hill surrounded by the highland forest. This former 100 year old colonial building had been turned into cozy guest house with bamboo huts as guest More rooms. This is a one of a kind accommodation for those looking for some peace and quiet in Cameron Highlands Less
