The Sticks

Time Out Malaysia Visitors Guide - - ABOUT THE GUIDE -

Perched 300m atop the hills of Kuala Kubu Bharu, The Sticks is trop­i­cal glamp­ing at its finest. Fea­tur­ing the lav­ish Opera House that can eas­ily fit a fam­ily of six, a Bam­boo House and ten­dok (a cross be­tween a tent and a hut) ac­com­mo­da­tion, this green haven is ap­prox­i­mately 1.5 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur. As elec­tric­ity is mainly gen­er­ated by so­lar power and gen­er­a­tor, there’s no air con­di­tion­ing and en­ergy hun­gry ap­pli­ances to speak of – ex­cept the wa­ter heater which runs on gas. There are op­tions of ei­ther full-board or half-board, and all meals are home cooked with a choice of bar­be­cue or steamboat (hot pot) for din­ner. A stay here is in­cred­i­bly re­lax­ing thanks to its cool tem­per­a­tures (it can get pretty chilly at night) and serene at­mos­phere. Lo­cated at the bend of the San­gloi River, daily ac­tiv­i­ties fo­cus on the out­doors with jun­gle trekking, white­wa­ter raft­ing, paraglid­ing (avail­able from April to Septem­ber) and ed­u­ca­tional walks for the kids. The Sticks, Lot 213 Jalan KKBFraser’s Hill, Kuala Kubu Baru, Se­lan­gor (the­sticks.my). From RM140 per night.
