The Shorea Re­treats

Time Out Malaysia Visitors Guide - - ABOUT THE GUIDE -

An eco-re­treat just 1.5 hours away from Kuala Lumpur, The Shorea is lo­cated in the Berem­bun For­est Re­serve in the state of Negeri Sem­bi­lan. Orig­i­nally de­signed as an ar­chi­tect’s fam­ily get­away, the re­sort is di­vided into two ar­eas – the Es­tate and the Re­sort – and com­prises vil­las and du­plex pool suites. The spa­cious vil­las can ac­com­mo­date up to seven peo­ple and are all thought­fully de­signed with the sur­rounds in mind us­ing lo­cally sourced timber and stones. There are two salt­wa­ter pools, two restau­rants and the op­tion to have in-villa din­ing. This is the kind of place where all you’ll need is a good book, but there are also easy na­ture trails, jun­gle trekking led by an Orang Asli (in­dige­nous peo­ple), and the Jeram Toi wa­ter­falls to ex­plore. Kam­pung Ko­lam Air, Mukim Pan­tai, Jalan Jelebu, Negeri Sem­bi­lan (+6017 300 5600/theshorea.com). From RM530 per night.
