Travel: Suria Hill Country House, Janda Baik

I got to know of Suria Hill Country House, Janda Baik from one of Groupon‘s deal. As I was looking forward to a relaxing holiday nearby Petaling Jaya, I decided an hour and twenty minutes’ drive to Janda Baik was not a bad choice.

So, I got my voucher, made my reservation and set off with Adam on a weekend. Driving pass the rain forest with the car window down was a refreshing feeling. We even saw goat, sheep, buffalo, and cow along the way. Heading upwards until almost at the end, we finally found Suria Hill Country House.

The building has a Malay Kampung architecture style infused with some modern touches.

After performing the check-in procedure, we went to look for our room. Well, we did get lost but found it eventually. Upon opening the door, I smelled … wood… The room was well-maintained and the bed frame was my favorite thing in the room.

The receptionist told us to spend time at the river which was accessible from the back gate. On our way, we found swings!!! Like little kids, we charged towards the swings tied to a big tree and swayed away…

We then proceeded to the cool rushing stream.

Adam was more than happy to play in the water…

I on the other hand, was just glad I found a rock to lie on…

which after a while, I got roasted…

and Adam came to the rescue with an umbrella 😀

Besides the river, there was also a landscaped garden which we spent some time feeding the koi fish…

fooling around…

and taking pictures…

The homemade breakfast served was Asian style.

We took more pictures before heading off to the Elephant Sanctuary and Deerland
