The Dusun is a wonderful place, surrounded by natures at their best - a cleanest forest I have seen (literally with zero rubbish), a cool waterfall greeting you at the end of an hour trek, freshest air with non-stop birds singing & insects chirping welcoming every minute of your stay.
My wife had look forward to the place for many years, & she enjoyed the place very much, especially the 2 infinity pools. The Dusun offers priceless experience unlike your typical run-of-the-mill hotels / resorts. Asmaq is a good manager for the place & play the role perfectly. I couldn't have enough of the breakfast by the awesome Makcik.
With that being said, there are several things which are a let-down.
Firstly there's an ongoing construction during our stay, which unfortunately didn't contribute to the tranquillity. By paying full price for the stay, we inevitably felt short-changed.
Secondly the family which owns the place could be a more gracious host. By opening the place for business, I was surprised by the lack of smiles nor social engagement, which I feel may enhances guests' experience.
Even when checking-out, there's not a word of thanks nor apology for the construction.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen for those who love to cook and a barbecue on an open deck for lingering dinners. Breakfast is provided while lunch and dinner can be catered if you prefer not to cook.We are just an hour south of Kuala Lumpur. KLIA or Kuala Lumpur International airport is in between us and Kuala Lumpur city so we're the perfect nature escape for those in transit who would prefer to give the city a miss. 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. All activities that guests enjoy here were created to raise awareness of Malaysia’s beautiful natural heritage and support local traditions, communities and NGOs. ... more less
