The Dusun is the ideal place for people looking for an escape from the hustle bustle of city life. The air is fresh, the view from our unit is stunning. This is the best way to get close to nature.
We had a 2-night stay in The Dusun, Tembusu House. Our house is a double storey unit. The living area is on the top storey, while the toilet and kitchen is at the lower level. The kitchen is well-equipped with rice cooker, cooking pots (various sizes), cooking pans, utensils and some basic seasoning. We bought some food from Tesco in Seremban and I managed to cook a decent meal.
The living area is spacious; there is wall but no door. So the good thing is you get an unblocked view of the mountain. At night, sleeping in a room without a door is quite thrilling. But we did not worry too much because the area was gated. The entrance gate is closed in the evening. Sleeping with the sounds of the insects, crickets, and the frog is truly a unique experience. Though there was no aircon (only fan), the place gets quite cold at night. Waking up the next day to the lush greenery, greeted by the chirping of the birds and sounds of the cricket is an amazing experience that I’ll never forget.
On our first day, we didn't close the mosquito net until evening, and realized that some insects have got onto our bed. Please learn from our lesson: close the mosquito net once you check in!
You'll find flying insects, mosquitos, snails, frogs in the house. We even saw a dead bat on the second morning. You need to adjust your mindset a bit because you are living in their space. So please respect (but not harm) them.
Our first breakfast was nasi lemak. I find it bare because there was only one egg, few slices of cucumber and anchovy. I requested for some toast bread and was happy with it. On day two, we had 'Lempeng', a kind of pan cake with curry. The curry was really yummy. All the breakfast came with coffee/tea, fruit juice and cut fruit.
In the afternoon, the place gets quite hot. We drove down to Seremban city centre to get some aircon and to replenish our wine. It was only 25 mins drive. The only thing is when we drive back to the Dusun, there was a short stretch of very steep road with a very sharp turn. But we did fine (we drove a Myvi), just keep it slow and you'll be okay.
My only comment is the management should replace the mosquito net (it has got many holes) and the knife (which was bent and blunt).

- The Dusun is a small resort on a fruit orchard with views of the Berembun rainforest reserve. Set on a small hill, the Dusun rents out houses that are set apart from each other not only to offer peace and privacy, but also to catch the winds with traditional architecture and enjoy lovely views.

The Dusun honors sustainable practices in farming and building, which has created a beautiful and healthy environment. As the family enjoys a good relationship with the local community, the business only hires from the nearby kampungs and shops from small entrepreneurs or other interesting responsible businesses as much as possible.
