We stopped here at random whilst driving past. It turns out November is not Durian season but the owners son gave us a tour of his grandparents farm. It was so sweet to see somebody so passionate about farming - they are using only organic methods and it seems durian farming is a hard task. We were given spring water... More

Actually we only choose to taste durian instead of a package with room and tasting durian. Definitely durian is fresh since owner pick up it onsite. Durian is so delicious and not smelly as we bought in US. It changes my impression about durian. If you are a durian lover, this is a must-be trip.

This is set in the middle of a farm/forest. The aim of the proprietors is not in the accommodation business but in durians. The accommodation is basic but sufficient for one night. The standard tatami room overlooks the durian plantation and you get a gorgeous vista with the floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors. If you have more than 4 people, definitely... More

Friendly owner, nice view, and nice durian with reasonable price! The durian is fresh and it is old tree durian. Love the taste of a bit bitter+sweet for "Qing Pi". Still get the chance to experience and explore the durian farm after having our durian. The owner will tell you the story of durian and taste the rambutan during farm... More

We came, we saw, we devoured! It was a great experience trying several different types of durians. Owner Mr. Chang was such a delight giving us a tour of the orchard and sharing with us about his successful crop. The view overlooking the ocean is also pleasant.

I kid you not, if I didn't taste it for myself, I'd say it's complete baloney! The best organic durian is reserved for guests. If lucky, you can hear durians drop early morning. We heard 3 drop, the 3rd morning & that made us very happy indeed. We tasted sweet, bitter, sour & peanut. For "Kapri" durian, I was suppose... More

4 of us stayed a night on 4 July 2016 at their Tatami room. Our package included the durians of course. As it was about the end of durian season, we couldn’t expect much because the fact is you could not force the durians to fall and meet all the high demands from customers. The farm owner, Mr. Chang might... More

Very disappointing, durians were almost inedible, totally dry and hard, and yet could still charge rm25/kg for such durian. A total letdown and not really honourable for charging premium price for inedible durians. Even kampong durians taste better than this.

“Request for the room closest to the pool. Nice sitting area, and it's farthest away, therefore less traffic/noise.”
