Jungle trek to a waterfall (within walking distance)

The trek is guided and takes 20 minutes to get to the jungle entrance then an hour to get to the waterfall. The rate is RM80 for the first two people and RM30 for each following person, including the jungle entrance fee. Those who are more adventurous can do a longer trek that would take about 6 hours. The cost of that would be RM120 per person. You will need shoes with good grip and socks. There are leeches during the rainy season, they are relatively easy to pull off. The trek is only recommended for those between 8 years and 65 years.


Cooking Workshop

The charming Hanita, affectionately known as Chek Ta on the Dusun gives workshops on Minangkabau cuisine. You will prepare a meal from her menu, which she adds RM30 per person to the menu set for the workshop. Then you eat what you’ve cooked!




Thank you to Terry and Jackie Rendell for the photos.

Forest Walks (within walking distance)

There is a little patch of bush on the Dusun called Bukit Petai and another acre of Mahogany. We’ve made lovely little paths through these forests for guests to explore.

Sri Menanti Museum

This beautiful old palace was home to the Negeri royal family between 1908 and 1931. A four-storey wooden building was created with the finest traditional craftsmanship. The museum showcases royal functions and snippets of history. If you’re interested in Negeri culture and architecture, this Museum will be a treat, although you do have to dig a little for information.  It is a 40 minute car ride. A taxi can be arranged.

Wet Market

For those who do not live in Malaysia, the wet market is a must visit. Especially early in the morning, the market represents the very pulse of this small city, Seremban, and a real encounter with Malaysia’s colourful, odiferous and loud personality. Most stalls are manned by independent grocers/growers, and produce is as fresh as it can be – the catfish wriggle around in your bag! Do bring your own shopping bags, or you will get plastic bags within plastic bags for every item. There is a food court upstairs with authentic stall food, including the famous Seremban beef noodles. There is also some batik and clothes to be found upstairs. A taxi can be arranged.


*day trips


The historic city Melaka is full of pretty cafes, great museums, delicious Nyonya food, and souvenirs. Just an hour and a bit away, you could spend the day exploring the many interesting and delicious parts of this UNESCO heritage city. A taxi can be arranged. Buses are also available from Seremban to Melaka.
