Cheng Sim •  Aug 02, 2020

There's more to planning a nature retreat in Malaysia than just finding an accommodation that's surrounded by lush greenery and scenic landscapes. It also has to tick all the right boxes including spaciousness, amenities and privacy. Thankfully, there are many stunning nature resorts in Janda Baik to spend the night, but if you're planning a large family getaway, which includes your relatives, we have a place just for you.

Situated in Pahang, Aman Rimba Private Estate sits gracefully in Janda Baik, a small village that's only a 50-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur. Perched on a hilly area, you'll be welcomed by the cool temperature that can drop as low as 22 degree Celsius at night, so prepare to embrace the cosiness throughout your stay.

Step into Aman Rimba and you'll notice how it resembles a traditional Malay village surrounded by leafy greenery and palm trees. Perfect for large groups, guests would need to rent the entire property (starting at RM3,850 for 2D1N) that comes with six villas, which can accommodate up to 20 people. Since Aman Rimba does not rent out individual villas, rest assured that your group will have the ultimate privacy!

Out of the 6 villas in Aman Rimba, there are a couple of villas that stood out from the rest. Perfect for two, Villa Serai is designed with a mix of English and country decor complete with Javanese design features.

Ideal for a family of four, everyone can rest comfortably at Villa Kunyit. Besides having a queen-size bed and two single beds, this charming villa has a private balcony and en-suite bathroom too. Since it's close to the Aman Rimba lake, you're likely to see black swans and have the chance to fish for patin, red tilapia, and more!
