About the neighbourhood
Although it is only 30 minutes away from the centre of Kuala Lumpur, you find yourself surrounded by nature; mountains, lake, fish pond, huge jungle trees all around you. It is in quiet gated and guarded neighbourhood where a few bungalows are spread out over a large area. There is a Tesco nearby, about 5 minutes by car. Guests are advised to drive as public transportation does not lead you to the retreat. Parking is free and secure.
Getting around
The retreat is along the Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur trunk road and it is located about 20 kilometres / 30 minutes travel from centre of Kuala Lumpur.
