Sequestered away in the forests northeast of Kuala Lumpur, this safari-style glamping resort offers guests a chance to disconnect.
In partnership with Tiarasa Escapes.
Tiarasa Escapes began as a way for Malaysian entrepreneur and actress Tiara Jacquelina to let her children better appreciate nature and the great outdoors. Four years later, this luxurious resort consists of 20 tented villas and five treetop villas, dotted across seven acres of jungle-swathed land. While there’s a delightful sense of seclusion on the property, you might be surprised to find that it’s just a 45-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur’s city centre.
If you’re eager for a chance to disconnect and surround yourself in nature, here are three reasons to make Tiarasa Escapes your escape from the urban gridlock.
1 | Get close to nature while staying close to comfort
Tiarasa Escapes’ luxury glamping tents are styled after safari accommodations. Each of the 20 tented villas feature elegant layered drapings, high-quality fittings and personal touches like Iban Pua Kumbu fabrics selected by Tiara herself to add a Bornean element to the designs. Each tented villa is also equipped with a king-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a free-standing shower.
For a truly unforgettable experience, opt for a stay at one of the five treetop villas. These elevated villas offer a sprawling floor plan with one large bedroom, an en-suite bathroom and a wraparound balcony with a sofa bed. You’ll also have stunning views of the lush surrounds. Both villa options include free Wi-Fi, in-room coffee and tea amenities, and hairdryers.
2 | Luxury resort amenities in a charmingly secluded setting
Experiencing nature doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the trappings of a luxury resort. When you’re not exploring the surrounding Janda Baik rainforest or enjoying the plush confines of your villa, unwind by the resort’s generously sized pool. Like the rest of the property, the pool was designed to resemble a natural lake and is studded with large granite rocks.
On the dining front, Rasa ini the Rainforest Restaurant offers a wide array of local recipes along with international favourites. A particular speciality here is the signature nasi ulam made with fresh herbs from the garden, using Tiara’s own recipe. Another speciality here is the Sarawak-style laksa. Guests will also have a selection of traditional teas to choose from between 4pm and 6pm. Teas also come accompanied by locally sourced kuih cakes.
If you prefer to enjoy a meal in your villa or on your own picnic, you can also opt for a packed tiffin lunch served in a traditional tin.
3 | Explore the Janda Baik rainforest
The resort offers a variety of activities that allows guests to discover the lush environs of the surrounding rainforest. Riverside picnics can be organised along the banks of a nearby river. Your personal Tiarasa Escapes ranger will also be on hand to set up your picnic while explaining points of interest surrounding your picnic spot. Wildlife enthusiasts can also explore the grounds on their own, or go on ranger-led nature walks where they can track down crimson-winged woodpeckers and black-thighed falconets.
In the evenings, retreat to the property and swap stories at the nightly communal bonfire and barbecue. On selected nights, you’ll also get to enjoy moonlit cinema screenings on the lawn.
