We’ll not deny our love for luxurious villas and 5-star hotels, because that would be silly! But as much as we appreciate the finer things in life, we also love humble stays with one-of-a-kind personalities about them.
We have recently seen a rise in tiny stays all over Malaysia, and we’re here for them because they’re perfect as a quick getaway destination or an intimate staycation. From containers transformed into a small dwelling spaces to a little wooden home sitting on a hilltop, there is something for any kind of vacation.
