10 Janda Baik resorts for your next getaway

1. Mandara Tree Villas

Of all the things we love about Mandara, the #1 would probably be the exterior design of the house itself. The sliding glass doors and big windows let you soak in as much natural light as possible while giving you a 10/10 view of the hillside and the evergreen beauty of Janda Baik. The entire villa sleeps 7 and will be a perfect hideaway for you and your group. Plus point is it's near to a number of local eateries! Even though it's pretty new, Mandara has gotten the seal of approval from a lot of their guests, so we, too, won't hesitate on this one.

2. Charis Janda Baik Villas

Three spacious villas are available, two of which come with their own private pool! Villa 1 has 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, while Villa 2 has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Besides the sizeable pool, guests will no doubt admire the minimal but tasteful furnishings, and it'll be a great place to enjoy your getaway within this private setting. To note, their third villa (Villa 3) accommodates 4 people and while it doesn't have a private pool, guests would have access to a man-made pool and river which is also accessible by the other villas.

3. Have2 Private Villa

Opened to the public in December 2019, we love how this villa screams 'family time!' or even 'birthday trip with friends!', thanks to their party-ready amenities; private pool, audio system, outdoor seating, barbeque sets, and even on-site fishing pond! The villa fits up to 20 pax, and it's a dream to be spending the weekend here. Not only is the villa spacious and airy, but it is also tastefully decorated to give you the homely feels. It has 5-star reviews from visitors to date, so they must be doing something right!

4. Embun Luxury Villas

At Embun Luxury Villa, you can choose your villas based on the view that you wish to wake up to; rainforest or the pool. Either way, when you leave your room, you still get the best of both worlds! We recommend going for the all-inclusive villa package, whereby you'll be catered for scrumptious meals from Cafe @ Embun. Take it at the lawn seating, the lounge area, or in the comfort of your villa-it doesn't matter.

7. Tiarasa Escapes

Glamping is a portmanteau of 'glamorous' and 'camping', and Tiarasa Escapes know what they are doing when they first built this campers' haven. You can choose between the tents or the treehouse. Each unit is spacious in its way, and best of all, you get to immerse in the natural elements throughout the landscape of Tiarasa Escapes. Activities are aplenty here at any time of the day, fit for the whole family. From bird-watching to watching movies under the stars. At night, it's nice to just sit back after a private BBQ (offered in-house but priced separately from the villa) and listen to the chorus of insects right outside the tents. Bonfire roast is held nightly, so whether it's marshmallows, chicken wings or sausages that you prefer, it's easy to bask in nature in the comfort of high-end accommodation whenever you're here.

8. Twinkle Villa

Twinkle Villa is actually a compound made up of 4 houses - Cengal House, Gaharu House, Resak House and Meranti House. All the houses provide a wonderful stay within Janda Baik's beautiful nature, but the standout gem has to be Cengal House. Winner of the Malaysian Institute of Architect's Gold Award for Building Of The Year in 2017, it's a beautifully constructed house that'll catch your eye immediately. Cengal House has 4 rooms that can accommodate 12 people in total. If the house looks large, that's because it is! It also houses a gallery, a rooftop garden and a large entryway.

9. Enderong Resort

One of the things unique about Enderong Resort is that it's a highland nature retreat situated 2000 feet above sea level in Tanarimba, an award-winning green project in Janda Baik, Pahang! Expect to feel the cool mountain breeze to kiss your cheeks as you travel around the resort and there's a swimming pool set amidst the lush natural surroundings of Enderong Valley! It's a short walk from the accommodations and you can swim while gazing at the blue sky or the flora and fauna circling you. You can also enjoy a beautiful big pond near the swimming pool where you can dip your tired feet into the waters with the fish frolicking near your feet.

The resort comprises 5 different accommodations and has 22 rooms. If you're dreaming of waking up among the trees, choose the Enderong House as it is a three-story stone and timber house with large glass windows and high ceilings designed to take full advantage of the cool mountain breezes and the surrounding rainforest.

10. Happi Village

Happi Village is less than an hour’s drive from Kuala Lumpur, so it’s not too far from the city, but definitely far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life. Temperatures here are much cooler than in the city, so combine such a pleasant climate with the surrounding virgin rainforest producing refreshing air, and it feels like heaven on earth, literally. ? They only have 11 rooms which run out pretty fast, so you should definitely book in advance to avoid disappointment. The iconic part of the room, and the most Instagrammable place that pops up all over social media is their outdoor bathtub. Bask in scenic views of the lush, serene greenery, while you have a relaxing soak! Don’t worry, the bathtub area is surrounded by a garden so you’ll have maximum privacy!
