A pleasant couple trip ”
Great Short Escaping Trip with Bao Sheng Durian Farm Owner is very friendly Breakfast and handmade drinks from them were superd too Have an amazing trip and for sure will come back again. Hopefully during durian season✌️✌️
Amazing, Nature, Spectacular”
It was amazing, every thing is very natural, the host is very friendly Mr Sheng Durian, even offered me a short course of durians. Love it. He even offered me a free durian. I was delighted. The area and the hut I was staying in was very private, the sunset view at 7:30 was amazing. priceless. A waterfall is just 2 minutes walk which was amazing as well. unfortunately, the only downside of the stay was the toilets. Needs upgrading and some serious cleaning. other than that, it was an amazing place to stay. I will stay again.
Relaxing and breathe taking view”
It is a small room in a durian farm at west side of Penang island. The owner and his family are helpful and friendly, a bit sloppy to drive down to the house but the room is simple and nice, come with private pool with cooling water channelled from the hill. Perfect for short weekend getaway.
Durians and more durians”
If you like durians, worth a stay at Bao Sheng Durian Farm. Great friendly staff. Reasonable price but simple accommodation. Outdoor huts for shower and toilet. Many fresh durians of a different variety. May listen to the recommendations from staff. You need to pay for each durian, or you may pay RM150 per person for eat-all-you-can. Stay is another RM150 per person.
A durian experience!”
Absolutely incredible! We loved the concept of minimalist accommodation- simple spacious rooms with a raised platform for the bed, and sliding glass doors opening up to the trees and the view of the vast sky. At first, I was a bit hesitant after glancing through the reviews and noting that it would be an hour's drive away from Georgetown. But it was truly an amazing surprise when we arrived at about midnight to the place, and Ah Chan greeted us happily and showed us our rooms (he had stayed up later just to welcome us). The cool breeze, fresh air and soothing sounds of the jungle that surrounded us added to the warm welcome. It couldn't have been a better place to relax. It was wonderful waking up here in the morning, and we had a great conversation with Ah Chan over beautiful, freshly grounded coffee, and coconut juice. Fantastic experience overall, flavourful and satisfying like a durian. Will definitely be back!
It was a great getaway from buzzing city life of Georgetown. Place is serene, yet comfortable. However it may be hard to access by public transport (if you are a solo traveler), thus difficult to access food or entertainment. Overall, it's a very pleasant stay. Do visit during durian season (late May)
One of the best hillside hotel room with great views”
Can buy delicious durian here and have a short walk in durian orchard
Love the view.... It is a good nature retreat! ”
Love the view. Its just that didn't get to taste the durians
I am not sure whether I should recommend this place or not to anyone...”
Positive points: - The View We booked this place because of the view. Once we reached the farm stay, we felt like all of our struggles getting here were worth it. What a breathtaking view. You can literally see the sea and the villages from this place. - No Frog Although this place was like dalam hutan, there was no frog in sight and I feel relieved! - The Pool It was open until 10PM! We're back from dinner at about 8.30pm-9pm ish and we can still play at the pool. - Amazing Breakfast The breakfast was a set meal. We had nasi lemak & brewed coffee handmade by the owner. And some bananas too! Walao I would come here again because of the breakfast and the beautiful breakfast area. Negative points: - The Route We booked this place without checking the route to get here first. The route and parking was difficult in my opinion. Fortunately my friend is a pro. We didn't dare to return to this place after 8/9pm due to the road. - Amenities We had struggles getting a hair dryer. - Hot Shower Be careful with the hot shower. It could be REALLY HOT!
Calm & Peacefull”
Please make sure you bring enough food if you plan to stay at the farm house.
Nice relaxing place for a short gateway! ”
Check in was quick & easy, better inform them in advance about your eta. Staffs are friendly; dogs too ;) The view from our room is niceeee! Beds are comfy and we had a good sleep. However, please take note that since rooms are divided by 'partitions', so be expected sound proof will not be good if your 'neighbourhood' talking too loud. But we didn't face any issue so far during our stay as it was weekday :) Room is just with simple amenities, you may bring your own small mirror. Shared bathroom & toilets are quite clean. We love their breakfast! You can choose your breakfast from selected menu during check in; and coffee provided too (not 3 in 1 kind). So tasty and good coffee! Overall, it was a healing one day stay for us :) 如果想要放松一下的朋友蛮推荐过来住一晚的，基本上没有什么事情可以做毕竟在半山上，就是过来享受一下大自然和休息是很不错的选择:)
Everything is all about Seasonal”
High ground from the durian farm. Be sure that your visit is during the durian season otherwise these place is just a dead village. Rooms has private pools but its all spoiled by level of cleanliness. These place has too many dogs.
Great place to escape from city”
Nice location Good staff Breathe taking view from the hill top Nice coffee Highly recommended
Nice location and scenery. Very good customer service from the owner. The hotel maybe need to review on how do they manage their dogs.
Best stay ”
Must stay if u r in penang
The best quiet place”
Hospitable hosts, beautiful sunrise view from mountain
Nice Place but need lot of Improvement.”
Very nice place on topof hill overlooking the sea with pool. Not a Muslim friendly place because of dogs running around. Some room need improve privacy/blind. Location is a bit isolated so need to buy food in advance. The staff are willing to buy food for you from nearby village. Cleanliness need lot of improvement.
Nice view but could have done more”
We came with modest expectation after reading all the reviews. To our surprise, the place was indeed a nice vacation spot. Quiet, serene, spectacular view, cozy, all you can asked for a resort that situated up in the hill. We booked a standard villa room as we wanted our kids to dip in for a swim. I'm guessing the management is using stream water to fill up the pool. It would be great if the water can be filtered before filling into the pool. It is such a waste that the management did not develop the facilities and make it into a more complete resort. One of the thing is place for dining. The nearest eatery would need us to travel 5 - 15 minutes, or even more if you wanted better options. Overall, I would recommend to those who wish to getaway from buzzling city life and off to a affordable weekend retreat
Great views. Rooms with full windows on 2 or 3 sides. Lovely nature.”
One of best and most peaceful places I have stayed in. Great if you like nature. You can see the sea as you are high up here. We did not have a car but the ownwer was very kind and dropped us at Entopia and we got thebus back and the next day the same and we got bus to our next place. Dinner and breakfast were simple. Some dogs.
Great view with limited facilities ”
Overall the hotel room is very basic with shared bathroom and no toiletries provided. However, the view from the room is great,facing the nature and can see the beach from the room. The facilities can further improve in term of walkway to the room and cleanliness of surrounding!
Free Wi-Fi in all rooms!
