In addition to the excellent cooking classes, this is a wonderful retreat set in the lush hills of KL. The entire home reflects a modern space with Asian accents, beautiful surfaces and finishes. There are several sitting areas, with books to peruse, coffee or tea and fresh baked goodies. The kitchen is the best part, open and airy, plenty of... More

This review covers the cooking class only, as I live 10 minutes away and didn't stay in the rooms. (My classmates who were staying there seemed to be enjoying it thoroughly, though.) The class I took was "Homestyle Malay," and it was probably one of the best classes I've taken, largely due to Rohani Jelani's personality. If you're the kind... More

Thank you very much for your kind words. I just want to add that we never intentionally run late - it's just that very often people don't want to leave and prefer to hang around after class chatting away, like me! :o) I am so glad you had a good time, and please come again! All the best, RJ More

Rohani and staff extend their personal touches to make this a very special place. We stayed 2 nights and took 2 cooking classes (Homestyle Malay & Fishy Business). The setting is stunning, situated in a valley of rainforest on the very edge of Kuala Lumpur. Daily village life with prayers (at the nearby mosque) and chickens and kids playing in... More

We had heard of Bayan Indah through family and friends, and stayed for two nights and two days of classes. Every aspect of the stay was excellent, from 5 star standard accommodation to hugely enjoyable classes, followed by amazing lunches with the other visitors. Bayan Indah is located just 15 minutes from the centre of Kuala Lumpur, but is sited... More

My stay in Bayan Indah was very enjoyable and one of the highlights of my recent holiday to Malaysia and Singapore. The hotel itself is picturesquely located on the edge of a rainforest and although there is no public transport, we took a taxi and it took around 15-20 minutes from the centre of Kuala Lumpur. It is very peaceful... More

I visited Bayan Indah last week with my boyfriend. We had a very enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly, the location was beautiful, it was hard to believe we were only 15 minutes away from the city.
