We had a lovely time at the Dusun for 3 nights in December. We received a friendly welcome from Helen after a long flight from Japan, and enjoyed the fantastic beef satay that we cooked over the BBQ on our verandah. The next day we went down to Serembam to the wet market to walk around and have lunch, then took a taxi back. We also took the bird walk one day and the jungle hike to the waterfall on another -- it's true there are leeches on the path, but that lends to the adventure and it's not a problem if you're covered up. A splash in the waterfall pool at the end is idyllic and refreshing.
The infinity pool is especially lovely after trekking around, and the patio a nice place to eat and talk out (bug spray necessary).
All the staff and family were gracious and helpful, and the food is fantastic. You can bring your own food or buy it at the market, but we choose to have them prepare our evening meals -- some really delicious dishes, and reasonably priced.
Would love to return in the future.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Dusun is a small resort on a fruit orchard with views of the Berembun rainforest reserve. Set on a small hill, the Dusun rents out houses that are set apart from each other not only to offer peace and privacy, but also to catch the winds with traditional architecture and enjoy lovely views. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen for those who love to cook and a barbecue on an open deck for lingering dinners. Breakfast is provided while lunch and dinner can be catered if you prefer not to cook.We are just an hour south of Kuala Lumpur. KLIA or Kuala Lumpur International airport is in between us and Kuala Lumpur city so we're the perfect nature escape for those in transit who would prefer to give the city a miss. The Dusun honors sustainable practices in farming and building, which has created a beautiful and healthy environment. As the family enjoys a good relationship with the local community, the business only hires from the nearby kampungs and shops from small entrepreneurs or other interesting responsible businesses as much as possible. All activities that guests enjoy here were created to raise awareness of Malaysia’s beautiful natural heritage and support local traditions, communities and NGOs. ... more less
