Three generations of our family spent 4 days/3 nights in the Dusun (Sora house - The Japanese themed house) and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The Dusun appears to be very popular, and with limited availability it is best to book early. We booked a month in advance and so were able to choose precisely which house we wanted. Point... More

Thank you Duncan for a very helpful and detailed review. It also gives a clear picture of what guests might expect when they come to our open-plan eco resort; sometimes the unexpected. I am happy that you liked the food. But I would like to point out - for the sake of other guests - that for a family group... More

The Dusun has a very tranquil environment surrounded by green lush virgin forest full of wildlife. It's a place for serenity, peace and meditation with excellent facilities such as self-contained kitchen, swimming pool, and very comfortable bed. The moment we meander along the uphill gravel road to the cliff top reception, we were in awe with the beauty of the... More

Stay in Berembun house for 1 night at 23Dec with my wife. Overall we love the greeny surrounding and quiet environment. Quite a relaxing place to calm down our body and mind. Cook our own dinner in the kitchen, they only have 2 ageing pan, stove and simple spice e. g. Salt, sugar, and oil. Bring your own cookware and... More

I am glad that you enjoyed the Dusun setting and we really appreciate your feedback on the house. Since this review we have replaced the cookware in Berembun House. We will still stick to the basic spices - salt, pepper, cooking oil and turmeric, because people tend to bring what they need for the specific dish they are cooking. As... More

It was a short getawat after a busy year end. Stayed at Perling House. Not exactly a solo with the companied of wings, lizard and melodies from the nature :) Brought my TWC mint tea along, a cup of hot tea looing out the greens, delicious Minagkabau dinner. Walkabout the orchard. Immersed myself in the mother nature. Love the tranquility.

We stayed at Perling Bukit. The room was cozily fit for the 3 of us. Though I struggled with my sensitive nose for the first few minutes (the wall at the bed area was a bit dusty), I truly enjoyed my stay there. The young lady that greeted us was pleasantly nice and so does the staffs working there. Always... More

Many thanks for your review. It is always encouraging for us when guests appreciate the quiet pleasures of this lovely hillside. We will give the Perling walls a good scrub. Timber does need more care, but we prefer it all the same. More

On arrival we seemed to be too early for our hosts. The first question 'Was the gate open?' seemed a little rude. We were told that the 2 houses would be ready at 2p.m. Fair enough. When our small room 'Berembun' was ready we were shown round by the owner. We were a little surprised that the space was very... More

Before we headed to KL we wanted an escape from the city and this was the most perfect rainforest resort we chose. We stayed at Perling Bukit house. The terrace was spacious and we enjoyed the tropical sceneries, coffees, pure relaxation, great BBQ and house served meals which we totally loved. The house was all wood with a local touch... More

Thank you for your most appreciative and sensitive review. It is guests like you who make our design efforts worthwhile, and also our restraint in having few houses spread out for space and privacy. And you are right - most of our staff come from the nearby orang asli village. This is by policy, just as we stress Negri Sembilan... More
