What can I say about this place? Wow! We came here mid December and we're still here! Holidays just about over but we're still having a lot of fun here. Everyone's so nice, Meena the lovely owner, is such an amazing person. She organised for us a lot of activities and excursions during our stay. The food is lovely, the...

We came to know of this amazing place called The Roots via a good friend who's been there. So we decided to check it out ourselves. Omg what a nice and refreshing change from the norm of an eco resort this was. I've been to a few Eco resorts around Malaysia and The Roots is one of the very "back...

Love the place. We were in the tree house and it was clean and comfortable. I am impressed that they had good water pressure in the showers and even hot water. The host had a wonderful spread of breakfast for us.

If you are a nature lover, this is the place for you. You gonna wake up every morning with cows and goats grazing grasses across the field. If your room provides you with jacuzzi, jump into it with your bubble bath. I bet you gonna feel like you are the most lucky person in the world above everyone else. Foods...

It's a very quite place in which is possible to re-connect with Nature. Just laying near the river reading a book or simply listenning to Nature's sounds, like bamboos moving or birds singing during the day. The tree houses are a child's dream made reality but with all the conforts you need! Everything was very clean. It was nice to...

We had a splendid family time in this newly discovered resort. Those who takes nature for granted & never appreciate life without tv / wifi (like my kids), will discover there's more to life than what city folks currently have by spending time here. This is a simple basic eco-resort which wooden chalets are surrounded by fruit trees and located...

Privacy all around as we had the whole resort to ourselves. Although our treehouse wasn’t built on a tree (it was built around a durian tree), the face that it was built from wood and stilts made it no less fascinating. That is and will be the closest I have come to staying in a tree house. Our chalet was...

Away from city madness, retiring and waking up to the sound of a gushing river beside our tree house, and everywhere you look, you have greens staring right back at you. Breakfast spread lacks the variety offered by bigger establishment, but what they lack in variety, they are more than compensated with quality. The nasi lemak was delicious and the...
