After completing the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal, my husband and I flew to Malaysia. Our first stop was the Malihom Private Estate. An absolute must. Nestled in a tropical forest, the property offers private rice houses, an infinity pool and delicious meals! The views are...More
My wife and I (in our late sixties) had just spent time jungle treking on the mainland and following our stay at the Malihom had booked time to explore Georgetown and the Langkawi. We, therefore, booked the Malihom as a place to relax for 3...More
I still remember the trip up from the Penang Intl.airport. As your ascend, you'll see lush pristine rainforest, and a cool breeze as the temperature drops, and there'll be views of both the sea (Straits of Malacca) and Bayan Lepas (a town with dozens of...More
This was a very nice stay and we have excellent memories from it. The burmese staff is very smiley and friendly.

July is their durian season. The General Manager James is probably the only person who is available to pick up the durians. I am sure he is willing to accommodate your request if no other guests object to having durians there. I am a durian lover. But I find it most offensive of the smell left behind in the car or room after placing durians there. So I would recommend that you make a trip out and have as much durian as you like at the plantations. The costs will be most affordable. Just ask James.
