[Updated 14 December 2020] Taking a break from city life is easy thanks to the abundance of nature resorts in Malaysia. Surrounded by lush greenery, some resorts also are perfect for romantic getaways with your spouse. If you're looking for a nature retreat near Kuala Lumpur (KL), look no further than these places!

It may take over an hour to reach The Sticks, but this nature hideaway in Fraser's Hill is a good place to temporarily escape from the city's hustle and bustle. You can unwind by staying the night in their tendoks, a cross between a tent and a pondok (hut). While only some accommodations come with attached bathroom, each tendok has a private verandah, so you can chill with a cup of coffee in hand.
