Really special and unique grouping of restored houses with envy-inducing décor. I was apprehensive about the cats (allergies), but they stay well away unless you want them near, and scores of braver mynah birds provided delightful birdsong throughout the day (find the bird guide at reception). The pool is long and good for lap swimmers, and remarkably peaceful.
Very nice to have breakfast in the room -- great coffee! -- though we only discovered in time for the final day that they'll provide sugar-free yogurt on request instead of fruity stuff.
Only issues were that it's a bit of a sweaty walk on a busy road to the beach (go early!) although distance to the top end of Cenang Beach is only 1.1 km (I clocked it on my pedometer). And you have to go to reception to get WiFi. And if you have upstairs neighbors, you might need earplugs to sleep (staying in Plantation 5 we had a noisy group speaking Arabic late into the night, walking around on the creaky floor, and getting up at 6am -- right over our heads). Still, it was so pleasant and enjoyable, I'd love to come back!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more less
