Orchid Lodge
Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you are looking for a nice and clean place to stay in the cameron highlands, orchid lodge (just beside esm hotel) is definitely a good place to go to. We needed to recover a bit and this was the perfect place for it. The owner is very helpful and tries to do everything to make you feel comfortable, and he offers a beautiful cooking class...:-)

We wanted to stay 2 nights in the Cameron Highlands and it turned out to be 5! It was just so wonderfull. The owner Eawesin is an amazing guy who made it the best stay in Malaysia for us.

We had a nice big clean room with an attached bathroom and balcony in the center of town, close to some of the nice hiking routes. We even had plants in the bathroom and on the balcony and flowers in our room! That we never had before. He makes sure there is nothing we could possible want more.

There is a nice living room with tv, where we could watch tv (moviechannels) or talk to other guest and/or Eawasin, There are many orchids in the living room, what makes it a nice and cosy room. We got a lot of Gingertea, but he made it with love for us.

Eawasin showed us around town, took us out for dinner and cooked for us. He's truly amazing.

The place is not easy to find. There are no big signs yet and because it's new, no one seems to know it yet, But if you ask for the "Hotel ESM" than you take the stairways just next to theirs on the left. It's on the topfloor.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool, but I accidently touched it, and don't know how to turn it off. All r...

Our room was clean and furnished nicely! We had an attached bathroom and a balcony. The most fantastic part of our stay however was our host Eawasin. He really went above and beyond to make our stay very comfortable. He offered us a cooking class, got us breakfast and told us everything we needed to know about the area. I'd recommend anyone to stay here just for this reason. His hospitality is fantastic and your stay will be very involved and interesting. We met another couple here that we travelled with for a few days after.

Orchid lodge is a fantastic place. The owner Eawesin is the most friendly guy you could meet. I took his cooking class and it was so much fun. We made the most amazing Bangledashi meal. He has given us truly an unforgettable time in the Cameron Highlands. His guesthouse is lovely. Perfectly cozy, peaceful and extremely clean. Unlike any other guesthouse. Thanks so much!

I stayed here for a couple of nights with my girlfriend as we were doing the usual tourist backpacker route to Penang. I was recommended Orchid Lodge from an old travel friend. I knew this place had to be something special for my friend to get excited about it.

We arrived in Tanah Rata central bus station mid afternoon and were at the doorstep of Orchid lodge. The location of the lodge is ideally situated just off the main food street.

As we entered, we were greeted by the Lodge's (can't really label it a hostel) founder, Yasin. Little Bangladeshi fella. He gave us a warm welcome and prepared us some Ginger Tea as we unloaded our bags into our pristine room, complete with balcony and ensuite! One little touch what I did like was the fact he even thought about supplying flip flops in the wet room as he realised that some tourists don't like the wet floors.

We sipped our tea in the lounge area, which was nothing short of impressive. The room was shrouded with character and little touches. In the far corner of the lounge was a small Orchid Garden, complete with a fountain. In the other was a nice large flat screen TV and some comfy seats to park up on. All around we're pictures of previous backpackers having fun in the Lodge. I almost felt at home.

Yasin sat with us for a while and explained a bit about the local area and also mentioned that he ran Bangladeshi style cookery classes free of charge! He explained that cookery and gardening were his passion and that he was happy to offer this unique service. All he asked for was the ingredients.

The overall atmosphere was nice and chilled out. The lack of Internet booking affiliation probably had something to do with this. If your looking for a party hostel - look elsewhere.

After 2 excellent nights here, we had to say goodbye to Yasin and what was probably the best hostel I'd stayed in so far on my travels (5 months and still going!).

This is a great guesthouse to stay at whilst visiting the Cameron Highlands! Yasin, the owner is very welcoming and will provide you with everything you need! Along with free tea, coffee and breakfast he also provides free Bangladeshi cooking lessons (you just supply the ingredients) and free night safaris! Along with plenty of tips and advice on how best to see the Cameron Highlands without paying over the price for a tour! The rooms have ensuite and a balcony overlooking the highlands and little touches around the room show that Yasin takes pride in giving his guest the most comfortable stay possible!
