We only had 1 night at Berumbun House. Another couple of nights would have been nice. It was like staying in our own little tree-house. with a great view across the wooded valley. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Friendly and welcoming staff helped to make the overnight visit a pleasant experience. The BBQ was set up and we... More

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we're glad you enjoyed it. Weekends get full quite far in advance, we suggest trying to book weekdays (which are cheaper, have a look at the couple specials) or booking further in advance. We hope to see you again soon. More

My friend and I stayed in Berembun house, this is an excellent location with an infinity pool, near to patio and easy access to any other houses. The owner and staffs are very friendly, love the kitchen where we can prepare our own meals. Though it was really really dark at night, you will love the wind and the moment... More

Hello there, For your information the owner and family are Malaysian, except for the German son-in-law (the Manager) who was imported for his charm and good looks.

we stayed in the berenbam house for 3 nights. The house was breathtakingly pretty perched next to the pool overlooking the lush jungle. Breakfasts were delicious, as was the dinner we had prepared for us. The owners and staff were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. As a bonus one afternoon we sat and watched the most amazing lightening storm rumble round... More

It was an amazing experience. Just a perfect getaway and bask with nature. Asma was so hospitable.She always have a pleasant smile and ever ready to serve. Brekkie couldn't have been more perfect when accompanied by durian. Do bring insect repellents for day walks. Night view was superb from the Berembun villa. The sky was so clear; numerous stars so...

Hello there, All of us had a good laugh reading this review. We're glad you had a chance to get into the rhythm of the Dusun. Sorry about the maintenance work, it could have been our neighbour who is building, or it could have been us trying to keep up with the humidity that eats everything. Thank you for taking... More

Just spent 2 nights in The Dusun. For a city folk like me, to be able to stay 2 nights here is a blessing. It harks back to the days when i too stayed in a rural village and can hear birds chirping and wind rustling through the trees. It is so rustic that you will get lizard and Gecko... More

Hello there, Thank you for taking the time to write this review, it's always helpful to have details from guests. Our doors tend to expand when it's the rainy season, so they are sometimes difficult to close. It's just very humid here. As for general maintenance, we are constantly performing maintenance work but guests sometimes see things before we get... More

Excellent hospitality, very private, cosy and secluded. The drive was very scenic though we could use a bit more with the description on the map i.e. the exact name of the Sekolah Kebangsaan, and etc. Nonetheless, we will definitely come again.

A friend and I stayed a couple of days at Rumah Emas and truly it was an experience that I'll never forget. You truly feel like you're in the midst of a forest reserve and far away from civilisation (although it is only about ten minutes away from town). Some things to take note off though is that it's best... More

We are family of 4 (2 children , 4 and 6 yo). We booked the Rumah Emas for 3 days / 2 nights. The view from this house is outstanding. At night the temperature drops and you will have a nice breeze. Our children were quite small, so the steep stairs are not ideal for them, which they ended up... More

This review is 10 months old (August, 2014). We're curious why it's being written now. We closed Emas House early this year for a complete repaint, revarnishing of all the floors and furnishings and replaced soft furnishings and carpets. The bathroom and kitchen were retiled and the fittings upgraded. All the bedding and towels throughout the Dusun were renewed at... More
