Property information

We have this great place, 600 metres above sea level, along the famous Titiwangsa Mountain Range of Malaysia. Our place is always cool and fresh. It is set right in the middle of the tropical jungle. We never cease to marvel at the rich flora and fauna while enjoying the natural sound and the refreshing scent of the jungle in the beautiful landscape of the place. This is where we take frequent refuge from the hustle and bustle of city life. It is indeed a place where one can live in a virtual world created only by the richness of one's own imagination. We built our vacation home here which we name "Sailor's Rest". Throughout the years, we have added few more facilities and turn it from a Homestay into "Sailor's Rest Resort". Currently what we have at Sailor's Rest are a three-bedroom main house with a one-room annex, a houseboat, two Kampung Chalets, two Modern Chalets, a dining hall, conference hall, three fish ponds, a river, an orchard and a beautifully manicured garden. The whole place is designed to provide complete relaxation.

Neighbourhood information

There are plenty of things to do both within Sailor's Rest compound and around Janda Baik. Our site itself is situated right next to a shallow and clean flowing river, where everyone can enjoy a nice splash in the warm weather. We also have two small lakes where guests can enjoy fishing or a nice family picnic. For the more adventures, activities such as hiking, cycling, ATV, and night walking are on offer. Most of our guests love driving around Janda Baik to experience the peaceful kampung life and visit the many different coffee shops and restaurants dotted along the roads or search for more hidden gems.
