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...

Very safe eco-resort as you need to ring the buzzer to drive in. Lady co-owner is friendly and check-in is complete within 5 min. We stayed in the three house with one King Size and 1 double decker bed and the kids are excited with it as it has a Jacuzzi on the balcony. We spend out time playing ping...

its a great place to stay especially if you like the quiet place. There is a river beside, you may just sitting there doing nothing. When it comes to the fruit season, you may just enjoy plucking the fruits there. At the moment, its the flowering season. The attentive staff with sincere smile makes you feel so warm. The room...
