A wooden house, on its own, by the sea...
A large portion of proceeds from The Resthouse are channeled into our conservation project - Lang Tengah Turtle Watch - on a neighbouring island. We encourage all our guests to spend a day visiting and enjoying this project, to see how your stay is contributing to the conservation of these majestic creatures.
A wooden house, by the sea; entirely on its own, on a promontory - hidden in amongst the trees..
Hayati moved this house from where it was originally: near Ipoh, on the West Coast of Malaysia, 250 km away.
It was built by the British Government, between the wars - has not been altered, and is furnished according to the period.
Two double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms. The rooms are equipped with: fan, cupboard, hall stand, bedside cabinet, reading light, chair, bedsheets and towels.
There is a kitchen for a bit of self-catering - juices and breakfasts only - and plenty of tea and freshly ground coffee provided. For lunches and evening meals, there are resorts nearby offering food, and several good restaurants 3 to 5 minutes further down the beach.
Interaction with guests
During your holiday the host lives on the premises together with you. She will be welcoming you at check in. In case you have any questions about the house, organising snorkelling or scuba diving trips, boat transfers or the island and its surroundings, feel free to ask for help.
Other things to note
The house is completely made out of salvaged wood and, therefore, no rainforest trees were cut. It runs with solar power and we try to be as eco-friendly as possible given the fragile marine environment. You are also encouraged to use our biodegradable toiletries.
We offer filtered water and ice for free.
We do not have hot running water.
