Templer Park Rainforest Retreat, Rawang

Malaysia is rich with rainforest all over the country; what better way than to enjoy it than out lounging by the infinity pool overlooking Bukit Takun. Made with everyone’s enjoyment in mind, this is the perfect place for a chilling afternoon amongst the natural environment and you can even hold events here. Although it may seem remote and far from our beloved KL city, Templar’s Park Rainforest Retreat is actually minutes away and easily accessible from KL.

Kuang Kampung Retreat, Sungai Buloh

Price: From RM 960

While this home may appear to be just another timber wood house like every other resort, this house actually tells a story far deeper than its facade. The architect couple who built this furnished this home with a goal of shining the limelight on Malaysian heritage – picking out antique furnitures each with its own tale from the past. Entice yourself to a piece of history and lay back in their pristine pool for a retreat into paradise.

Price: From RM 960.00

Address: Lorong Orkid, Kuang, 47000 Sungai Buloh, KL, Malaysia
