If there’s one thing (well, out of the many things) I love about Malaysia, is her abundance of nature that decorates our beautiful country. When life gets hectic, I always love going on a nature retreat to anywhere far and away from the noise, and oftentimes, I find peace in places that are near waterfalls or rivers.
If you’re someone like me who enjoys dipping their toes in fresh river water in the morning, then you might like this hidden Riverside Hotel in Perak. Rumah Sungai Perak has grabbed the attention of many locals, mostly due to its unique concept that comes with such an affordable price. This humble yet rustic stay is perfect for those who are longing for a simple kampung lifestyle.
Over here, you have plenty of things to do, from fishing to jungle trekking, or even just cooling off in the fresh clear river water (has a fun slide too!). An added bonus, they even offer a fabulous massage, JUST for the ladies, at RM 50 per session (how cheap is that!) Nothing beats a classic massage from a local masseuse than the ones in the city which can be rough on your body sometimes…
Most people who visited enjoyed how warm and friendly the host of this place was. Their meals are delicious, their stay is comfortable with rooms fitting up to 3 pax. All you need is good company and nothing else!
Due to popular demand, their rooms are fully booked till the end of the year. But no worries, 2021 slots are still open and you can start booking from 1st November 2020! So save this down!
