Looking for an escape from the city away from the crowds? Xscape Tambun will be the perfect place for a nature retreat in Ipoh! This cluster of chalets located at the base of some beautiful limestone formations covered in lush greenery will be a sight for sore eyes 😌So if you're looking for where to stay on your next trip to Perak, this Ipoh resort will be it! Xscape Tambun is a hidden gem that opened relatively recently, in mid-2019. Located just about 1.3km away from the popular Lost World of Tambun theme park, the tranquil resort provides a peaceful retreat for those looking for some respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The resort is a great place to just unwind and chill. Chill out on the swings or one of the picnic tables located on the resort grounds, have a barbecue, or go for a leisurely bike ride. There are also fun activities for guests to do, including cave exploring and flying fox (more on that below!). There are a few different rooms to choose from, from those that cater to two people as well as bigger rooms that can cater to four which are greatfor families. Nestled right by the limestone formations, it'll be quite the experience! The rooms are comfortably furnished and equipped with necessities like air-conditioning, hair-dryer, electric kettle and more. For families, choose from the Family Room with Mountain View that comes with the event space equipped with barbecue facilities and comfortable eating area. Alternatively, you could opt for the Family Room with Balcony which is located up a flight of stares and offers a balcony with a great view!
