The owner of this place has turned the mundane mountains to a peaceful getaway. The idea of mosquitoes might irk you off at first but with good repellent, it will be a great stay no doubt. Each house was uniquely built and the open space area, Lanai ideal for yoga or even meeting for 12 pax. Smooth arrival and departure...

I stayed here for 5 days after a conference in KL. It was so peaceful and quiet, and I truly enjoyed not having internet. The infinity pools are gorgeous and so is the surrounding jungle. I decided not to bring my own food to cook and was glad I did so, because the food they provided was so delicious! They...

My husband and i truly enjoyed our 2 nights away in this lovely resort tucked away in Jelebu. We drove ourselves without any difficulties using Google Maps. However the gate to Perling was locked so we had to drive up the steep slope up the main entrance which was quite heart-stopping. Entrance of Perling is less steep. We stayed in...

I was planning for a retreat with beloved parent. I was happy to get this opportunity to stay in the green forest, Dusun. We enjoyed the beautiful view from Tembusu house. At night we also can hear all the nature forest sounds from the wind and the insects. Both my parent enjoyed the foods in Dusun as I have ordered...

I am really pleased that you and your parents enjoyed your stay. I know your parents especially requested Tembusu House, which is great. People who like Tembusu, love it. But for some people it is a bit too open and scary when they are used to locked up urban living. But it does give you the essence of living at...

Perhaps, after all these years, the place really needs some love and touch up. The taps and hose were almost falling of the sink. Owners must check on this, I am not sure if we were the only one who experience this. We stayed at Berembun, supposed to be the 'it' unit amongs the rest as it was the only...

We have replaced the tap at the Berembun sink - thank you for pointing this out to us. Berembun is our smallest chalet, but it has a large deck and is very popular. People who want a bit of extra space inside (in the rainy season!) should try one of the Perling units. Che Tah, who is in charge of...

1. We chose Perling Bukit house for stay, 2 nights, couple stay. 2. Getting there is very easy as you need to just follow google maps by entering the complete address given in their website. (The directions given in their website to travel from KL is not very clear though) 3. This place is surrounded by lush green forest and...

Thank you for this review. I know it will be useful to others to know what to expect in this unusual place. Perling is named after a bird, so maybe they were giving you especial chorus..

My Husband and I decided to do a gate away recently and I must say, we were not disappointed with our decision, however there are a few areas of improvement that the Dusun team may need to look into. We had a lovely drive up to this environmental friendly place. I must say, everything about this place is scenic. The...

Your review was very useful to us and I am pleased to tell you that we spent a week in October renovating the house, rebuilding the deck and balustrades, oiling and polishing the floors and replacing fixtures in the bathroom. We love timber houses, but they do require constant maintenance and I am sorry that we were tardy with repairs...

We stayed in the Berembun house, which has direct access to the upper pool. Pro - near the reception and dining patio, so everything was within reach.

I am really glad you enjoyed your stay - and the durians! One of the joys of the Dusun is the fruit season. We have around 9 acres of mature fruit trees, mostly durians, but also mangosteens, dokong and rambutans, and guests are welcome to roam around and collect their own or help themselves to what we provide on the...

We were in the wrong with this one. The booking letter asked him to pay by 31 May and he paid by 30 May.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Dusun is a small resort on a fruit orchard with views of the Berembun rainforest reserve. Set on a small hill, the Dusun rents out houses that are set apart from each other not only to offer peace and privacy, but also to catch the winds with traditional architecture and enjoy lovely views. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen for those who love to cook and a barbecue on an open deck for lingering dinners. Breakfast is provided while lunch and dinner can be catered if you prefer not to cook.We are just an hour south of Kuala Lumpur. KLIA or Kuala Lumpur International airport is in between us and Kuala Lumpur city so we're the perfect nature escape for those in transit who would prefer to give the city a miss. The Dusun honors sustainable practices in farming and building, which has created a beautiful and healthy environment. As the family enjoys a good relationship with the local community, the business only hires from the nearby kampungs and shops from small entrepreneurs or other interesting responsible businesses as much as possible. All activities that guests enjoy here were created to raise awareness of Malaysia’s beautiful natural heritage and support local traditions, communities and NGOs. ... more   less
