Lorong Sekeping Seren­dah, Seren­dah (af­ter Rawang) (012 324 6552/ If you’re in Se­lan­gor and have a free week­end, head to Sekeping Seren­dah Re­treat lo­cated in one of those typ­i­cal small Malaysian towns we tend to for­get still ex­ists. The Sekeping group are renowned for re­vamp­ing her­itage or or­di­nary-look­ing prop­er­ties into prime ex­am­ples of min­i­mal­ist in­dus­trial chic. The Seren­dah prop­erty is the per­fect ru­ral get­away as it’s ap­prox­i­mately an hour’s drive from KL, and even though it isn’t glamp­ing in the truest sense of the word (no tents), it’s a back-to-ba­sics re­treat with an em­pha­sis on com­muning with na­ture (no TV, no WiFi and lim­ited phone cov­er­age). Ac­com­mo­da­tion is spread over ten struc­tures sur­rounded by trop­i­cal rain­for­est and the in­door/ out­door con­cept is the crux of the de­sign. You may be in a house and have four walls, but it feels like you’re camp­ing due to the lush sur­rounds. Yet another get­away close to the city, and best to go with a cou­ple of other fam­i­lies or a big group of friends.
