Travel back to ancient China at this hidden mountain villa in Penang, where trees and fresh air abound. Located on a hiking hill just 30 minutes from Georgetown, find yourself basking in nature’s calm vibes when you spend a night at this rustic village newly opened last year.
Wake up to the sounds of birds chirping and leaves rustling in the wind as you stay in one of the huts on stilts or wooden traditional villas.
Make your experience even better by joining one of the on-site activities, from harvesting ripe starfruit and cucumbers to making ceramics – a great way to relieve stress! You can even buy durians here during the durian season!
Or for the adventurous ones, you can also join their half-day trip that consists of hiking, swimming, a karaoke session and visiting a temple and starfruit farm (RM 88 per pax; min. 4 people).
But if you’re just looking to chill, head over to their authentic Hakka Restaurant for their Black Sweet Vinegar Pork Trotter and Stir-Fried Yam Bean, or their Mountain Stream Water Pool, where everything is green (great for mental detox!).
Remember to bring water before you start your journey to this villa and restaurant as it’ll take you approximately 1 hour to hike up.
