“Great escape out of the crowded places”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012

It is a very relaxing place with very kind people. We stayed for 3 nights with our 1.5 year old son. He was free to walk around and play with other kids. All food is fresh and very well cooked. They offer great trips deep in the woods. I think with kids of older then 5 uou could join them.

When we would return to malaysia we will certainly will go there again.

This place touches every senses in us. The herbs garden smells wonderful, the beautiful and colourful flowers are pleasing to the eyes, the rooster rings an early morning call, the tasty egg omelette delights our breakfast. Best of all is their in-house jungle trekking that is challenging and fun. It's next to the river and every step in the borrowed boots allow us to squeal in delight. Our teenage girls really had a good time trekking, trying to avoid slipping while crossing the stream and admiring the bamboos. This is the first-time we jungle-trek and really appreciates the effort the staff did to make the trek safe, exciting and fun. The farm has been beautifully landscaped and is really soothing to just unwind and relax walking among the vegetable gardens. We would like to come back and see how all the plants are doing, especially my lime seeds. The staff- James, Azlan and Fajar have been wonderful hosts. - friendly and helpful.
Advice to owners - make the signboard bigger and more prominently placed. We lost our way. Missed the lodge and overshot. Had to U-turn in the middle of highlands. Provide clearer directions would be good.

Moonriver Lodge was a lucky find on the Internet. The beautifully tendered farm is situated amidst lush highlands on the border of Kelantan. Upon arrival, we parked our car at the visitor's bay which was neatly outlined with a colourful display of blooming flowers. The entire farm is thoughtfully set out with accommodation kept to a no frills style of raised wooden beds, comfy mattresses, cement flooring and sparse furnishings. After settling in, we were taken on a tour of the surrounding gardens by James, our caretaker for the day. He was great in explaining the permaculture influences and organic philosophies that is the foundation of MRL. The farm has a wide variety of herbs, vegetables and fruits growing around its property, making the place alive with healthy foods. There is also a chicken coup housing roosters, hens and 2 proud looking turkeys and lots of worm boxes dotting the farm. Following the informative tour, we headed out for a short trek to the waterfalls, enjoying the tranquility of the forest along the way. At nightfall, a delicious dinner including just harvested vegetables was served together with a roundtable of laughter, conversation and cool breeze from the highlands. The amenities at MRL include a library, outdoor and indoor toilets that are clean and well maintained, outside seating area and not forgetting laid back hammocks to while away the time. There's also a house dog and friendly folks around. Although it was a short overnight trip, MRL was certainly an eye opening experience, especially for nature lovers looking for a change of scenery. It is definitely a place of nature education for adults and children alike. I promised myself a return trip to learn more about their organic farming policies and participate in the other activities on offer. Kudos to MRL and team for their vision and continuous hardwork!

It's far enough from the madness of Tanah Rata and Brinchang, yet close enough to visit the highlights of Cameron Highlands easily. James, our chief 'hospitality officer', was warm, efficient and knowledgeable. He made the Rafflesia and waterfall treks very fun, and educational for us, including my two children. We also learned the basics of organic farming, making the textbook lessons come alive. The lodge was cozy and basic, but we felt right at home and were always comfortable. My kids rated MRL as their favourite accomodation in our two-week Malaysia trip, even though we later stayed in a glitzy beachside resort in Penang with the full works.

Recently I have been back to past again, I have been to Kelantan Lojing….which still can consider a reserved beautiful natural  but how long can reserved I don’t know….
It’s was totally out of CITY, do not have WIFI, cellphone coverage was very weak & limit on electricity
I can’t descript the freshness of air in the place I stay for 2 nite in Moonriver lodge, a quiet & peaceful place, no pollution & the tap water was tapping from the water falls it’s cold n rejuvenations , and my surrounding was only “hills, trees, grass & flowers”, when talk I can listen the echo of my voice.
today I have a bit hard to adapt the “air” in CITY & everyday have to bath warm water instead of the cooling water from the water falls….. this my 1st time crossing the bridge made by bamboo & also drinking the bamboo water
Now I rather me a snails instead of bees ….hehehhe
I’m not a good writer, but just sharing some of the picture I taken
Lastly, i want to have a BIG THANKS to all the fantastic hosts in Moonriver lodge i dont find i'm staying away from HOME but i'm back to my HOME SWEET HOME
Thanks Andrea, James, Cindy, Billie, Mrs. Tan, Kogar and otherssss i have not known by your name but have being seen each other for the 3 days

Here at Moonriver Lodge, we provide not just a relaxing stay but also the opportunity to learn about nature and growing food and to participate in day-to-day farming activities. Go on a trek to see the second largest flower in the world - the magnificent Rafflesia Kerrii. Hop onto the back of our tractors and join a farm tour or participate in one of our fun gardening programmes to teach your children to how food is grown. Harvest fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs from our garden to prepare a healthy, organic meal. Whatever you do here at Moonriver Lodge, you are bound to leave our gates rejuvenated but with a heavy heart to part with a place you wish was your second home.
