Would like to thank The Dusun Team for a wonderful stay.
We travelled from Singapore to Seremban Terminal 1 Bus Station and was greeted by a friendly taxi driver to ferry and guide the way up to dusun. It's a little winding trail and would need some expertise to drive along narrow paths and very steep slopes to reach the top of Dusun's location. 15km away for the hustle and bustle of Seremban town.
We were greeted at the Car Park area and led to our House Emas, it's a wonderful breathtaking view from our verandah. Nothing but endless greenery.
House Emas sleeps 4 adults and 2 children comfortably. One Loft with a queen and single and master room with One king size bed, all with sufficient pillows, blankets and netting to keep the bugs away. A bath with hot shower facilities. A fully equipped kitchen, with fridge, stove stop and condiments.
House Emas comes with a bbq pit which is great for a good get together, sits comfortable 6adults and 3kids, we hosted dinner for friends whom stayed at another House at Dusun. The food menu provides you to order sets of meals to cook on open fire which is really hassle free, cooked food is also available to order with vegetarian options.
Moving along to Food, all food prepared are fresh and excellent, breakfast is served at the patio from 8.30 onwards to 10am. We had toast, omelets, fresh fruits, juice, nasi lemak and coffee, tea on alternated days there. Helen shared an avocado, most delicious we've ever had - straight from her garden.
There's 2 swimming pools, both ph controlled and environmentally safe and friendly. It's slightly deep for average height swimmers, theres a wading pool for babies or young swimmers. The pool is naturally very cold due to altitude and surroundings.
There's a short trek to the river, we would not recommend this trail if with young children. The trails are off the foot path and you will need to look closely and rely on the sound of the river as guide. It's not a dense jungle but after rain the trail and wet surroundings made it a slightly difficult
task. When you reach the river its a steep decent thru mud, slime rocks and tree roots. The river bed is very narrow or none existing which makes it more difficult to rest. It takes about 15mins walk, though near, most of the time is spend searching for a right trail and maneuvering to get to the river bed. We assume it's much easier on a sunny day but bear in mind the hills are mostly moist, damp or wet due to our tropical climate. Do bring along shoes, socks, long pants, long sleeves and insect repellent with salt included or other remedies for leeches are aplenty.
Other activities, massage is $150 per session, Jungle trek which we didn't do due to age requirement - 8yrs and above and Bird watching which the guide was on leave during our stay.
As an eco friendly resort, guest are required to use bare minimals during their stay, recycle all their products from food, waste and other earth friendly methods as possible. We give a great deal of applause to Dusun for these efforts.
Dusun is a place to travel back in time, a place to sit and forget about everything (expect recycling everything you use) and leaving only your footprints behind.
We sense that the management has often been facing problems with guest vandalizing their premisses which is very sad. If you are staying here in the future, it's a lot of responsibility to care for every piece of item thats being brought back a least of life for the future generations to see and enjoy. Stay responsibly.

- 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
