Activities

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 RM40 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 is RM120 per person. You will need shoes with good grip, socks, a water bottle and swimming suit on under your hiking clothes. 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.

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.

 

Photography: Portraits and Workshops (within walking distance)

Our neighbour, Nikt Wong, is a renowned and seasoned photographer. Combine his keen skill and calm nature with the rich array of photographic opportunities at the nearby Berembun forest reserve and village – these portraits and workshops are an interesting way to catalogue beautiful relationships and experience the surrounding area and species.

We’re happy to make an appointment for you. Please do so at least a week in advance to avoid disappointment. Or contact Nikt Wong at +6016-358-6115 or niktwong (at) gmail.com

Ostrich Farm

Just a 10 minute drive away is an ostrich farm where ostriches, flamingos and deer are within enclosures. This would be interesting for small children. oistrich

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 buy a tote bag from us, or you will get plastic bags within plastic bags for every item. There is a food court upstairs with authentic local food, including the famous Seremban Beef Noodles and a decent rojak. Don’t forget to visit the cendol dessert stall under the Angsana tree in the parking lot.
