Tadom Hill Resort
Bukit Tadom, Kampung Labohan Dagang, Banting (012 522 5728/ www.tadomhillresorts.com). Tadom Hill Resort, surrounded by limestone hills and facing a lake, is the nearest to KL you can get to experiencing a simple form of glamping. A 45-minute drive from KL means that this is the perfect weekend getaway without having to travel too far. There’s a selection of accommodation on offer including chalets, dorms, a hammock sphere and a campsite with pitched tents for two covered by a thatched roof. While not exactly glamorous, this ecologically sustainable resort is built almost entirely with bamboo and is the kind of destination you visit for a good outdoorsy time. The major draw here is the activities that revolve around the lake where diving platforms and swings promise to provide hours of fun. Take a trial run by getting a day pass to check out the resort first, and then decide if the tents or the hammock sphere is for you.
