About this listing

A nature homestay far away from hustle and bustle. Let's go back to the basic, appreciate and care for the nature, recharge and rejuvenate our body, mind & soul. Experience a simple lifestyle in the jungle. Be adventurous, explore the nature. NO WIFI! Free our mind! This is also a well known wellness retreat & spa on Langkawi island called Rumah Holistic (house of holistic).

The space

The whole area covers about 1,800
square meters with a little house and spa surrounded by a rock hill and the rest are lush green rain forest. There is also a little stream with clear and cooling water running between the rocks and trees. Fish and fresh water shrimps will come nibble your feet. Lots of wild animals and friendly house pets. Outdoor BBQ, cooking and dining under the stars.

Guest access

It is advisable to rent a car or scooter as we are located in a jungle and not many taxi drivers know how to come. Arrange with the host.

- To famous Cenang beach is 20mins drive.
- To cable car is also 20mins drive.
- To airport only 10mins drive.
- To fishing village and seafood is 20mins walk.
- To nearest Internet shop is 20mins walk.
- To Buffalo Park 15mins drive.
- To beautiful sunrise on the hill 15mins walk.
- To local shops, restaurants 20mins walk.

Please make sure you are fit enough as the walk is hilly and the weather can be very humid and rainy depends on the season.

It is dark at night walking on jungle path, it is advisable to bring a torch light.

No WiFi at Rumah Holistic as we would like our guests to fully enjoy the tranquility and serenity of the nature. Let's talk to each other, stay connect with each other and with the nature, talk to our hearts and souls, instead of busy with your iPad or smartphone.

Interaction with guests

I will be with you most of the time to share knowledge and information unless you are ok just to be with yourself, then I will leave you alone.

There is a list of recommended activities available in your room.

I also love to share my knowledge and experience regarding wellness, spa, nature, herbs, nutrition, animal, traveling, life and spirituality as in universal love, humanity and sharing of positive energy, I am not into any religion. I welcome exchange knowledge and information in the similar fields and we can always learn from each other.

Other things to note

Please bare in mind that I live in the JUNGLE. Some insects and geckos may still get into the room. The kitchen is in an open concept, the garden is my living room, the hammock is my library... wind may blows, leaves may fall, moss will grow... squirrels, monkeys, moth, ants, termites, spiders, geckos, grasshoppers... are every where... Please do not expect clinical or sterilized cleanliness.

Most of my furniture and house items are recycled, given by friends or collected from the nature. Some maybe old or not matching to each other, but they are still in good conditions. I try to live a environmental friendly lifestyle and discourage new productions.

Basically, if you have an OCD, you are not advisable to stay here!

The cats and dogs are not allowed in the room but they are free roaming outside. If you are phobia with animals or have an allergy. Best not to stay here.

You may read about the wonderful breakfast I prepared for my guests on the reviews but it is no longer available. You can help yourself in the kitchen to prepare your own meals. I will also recommend some local places that you can go.

We were 3 persons at Eric's house during 7 days. Our nature home staying was very comfortable, pleasant and unique. It was absolutely right choice to live in jungles far away from noisy Cenang beach. It's indescrible feeling when you hear sounds of jungles early morning and in the evening. There are so many birds, monkeys, cicadas, gikons so close to you! Eric did his best to feel us as at home. He always was ready to help with any issue. He is very hospitable, kind, easy-going and excellent in breakfast cooking. Our outdoor breakfast was waiting for us every morning (sometimes with flowers) and every time it was different and very tasty. There are very friendly and funny 3 dogs and 3 cats at Eric's house. Dogs are securities from wild animals and cats are for harmony and comfort at home. Massage from Eric at his SPA was excellent and highly recommended. We tried Malay and Tai style and also took SPA package with relaxing massage and coconut mask. It was also so nice to sleep early morning with birds sounds or late evening under moon in the garden in gammock! We rented a car for 5 days by special price thanks to Eric and were absolutely free to move across the Langkawi island.Our way to the calm, beatiful and non crowed beach took only 20 minutes. It's the best way to stay here to fill Langkawi nature and relax!

Eric is a tremendously gracious and accommodating host. His humble abode is nicely tucked away but not remote, and the fishing village nearby has a lot of charm (and good food!) The rooms were pristine, which isn't surprising given how much thought Eric has given to cleanliness and keeping the bugs out. He also provided a complementary aromatherapy oil/burner in the room and that was a fantastic bonus. The pillows were on the hard side so BYOP (Bring Your Own Pillow) if you prefer the softer type. Earplugs are a must for sleeping! The delicious breakfasts also highlights Eric's thoughtful and hospitable nature. Should you also opt for a massage here, you're in good hands. Eric worked his magic and my entire body was rejuvenated after two hours of Swedish massage.

Eric was very helpful and welcoming. He is a good natured, wise and generally positive and humorous fellow. He is actually the first cook who ever managed to tend to my food intolerances every single day. pretty amazing. His cooking skills are excellent as is his massage skill. He has got a very high level of body energy thus definitely qualifies as a therapist. As others here and he himself have said: This place is probably not for everyone. Living in the jungle is different. And there ought to be more dust and leaves and stuff. As well as insects. This is normal. This is nature. This is the jungle. Take it or leave it. And when you live in the jungle the only safe way is to have many dogs to protect against wildlife. You might not be used to them roaming around at 5 o clock. I did not mind as the jungle gave me so much energy that I did not need to sleep longer. I really want to throw away my smart phone and move somewhere far away from WIFI and other radiation after this experience. I kept thinking the energetic days of my childhood were due to the young age. Far from the truth! It was due to the non existence of radiation like WIFI and 4G! Erics place is free from radiation and I felt exactly like a 6 year old boy each and every day. Even after drinking and partying which we did for xmas. Totally eye opening. An experience everyone should try.

Eric is a phenomenal host, and his cozy house is tucked away from the "busyness" of the beachside. I definitely recommend staying at Erica place for those looking for a retreat in nature with a personal touch!

Despite our unsuitability for his place, Eric was very kind, patient and understandable. He helped us instantaneously to find a place to stay in his neighborhood and drove us there. Many thanks for that!
