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.

The space
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.

Guest access
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 shared kitchen for a bit of self-catering - juices and breakfasts only (not provided) - and plenty of tea and freshly ground coffee may be taken at any time. There are resorts nearby offering food, and several good restaurants 3 to 5 minutes walk further down the beach.

Other things to note
The house is completely made out of salvaged wood and, therefore, no rainforest trees were cut. It runs on 100% 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 and be as environmentally conscious as possible during your stay.

We offer filtered water and ice for free.
We do NOT have hot running water.

There are no ATMs on the island and a lot places do not accept credit cards. It is a good idea to get enough cash out before heading over to Perhentian.

There are also no grocery shops near the house, so if you need things for light cooking, it is best to do your shopping on the mainland.

A daily cleaning service is available by request only. Please speak with your host in regards to this upon your arrival, if interested.
