Temple Tree at Bon Ton, Langkawi

 photo IMG_9706_zps75p2wzpu.png
Life is best lived without any expectations. Waking up surrounded by serenity and this is the best place to have social media detox. Took a weekend off and I ended at this unique boutique hotel in Langkawi, known as Temple Tree which consists of 8 antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin which was formerly a coconut plantation. Large houses with various rooms. I’m sure many would love to get back in time to feel how it feels when life were much simpler, no sky scrappers, or even before Internet invaded our lives.

 photo IMG_9646_zpsjroddqx9.jpg

Well, I never thought this could happened! I have never imagined that I can checked all the mentioned. Peace and serenity in place for a good break putting you in zen mode.

 photo DSC_0550_zpsvvst4u64.jpg

We were served with a glass of refreshing welcome drink by the staff from Temple Tree at The Straits Restaurant & Bar. Aside from drinks & beverages, they have a menu serving food too.
 photo DSC_0570_zpsyocgxgak.jpg

Got pretty excited to run around the houses, and here is where we can learn the history behind each house. photo DSC_0558_zpspp9p0uko.jpg photo DSC_0560_zpsnnromrsn.jpg

This is a Chinese house, once upon a time, it was located in Johor. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history. photo DSC_0562_zpselbsjlxo.jpg photo DSC_0581_zpspcbkjdaz.jpg

Its animal-friendly, hence, cat lovers like us will certainly love seeing the felines around. photo DSC_0563_zpse9ewuzi2.jpg photo DSC_0564_zps8gy4uhxj.jpg

Let me show you the house we stayed in. Its a Penang House. That’s my sis in the toilet 🙂
 photo DSC_0579_zpsp8traphr.jpg

Here is how the ancient Penang House look like. This house consists of a bathroom, two bedrooms, a living room and a room for the conventional tub. photo DSC_0580_zpsilsfidx2.jpgLovely tub with hot and cold water and a shower head.
 photo DSC_0616_zpsuwufs2wd.jpg photo IMG_9589_zpsywefdmfv.jpg photo IMG_9989_zpszfuk6780.png


There were two bedrooms, this is the one with two single beds equipped with TV. The satellite TV is only available in the Clubhouse.  photo DSC_0766_zpsy7lnb1bc.jpg

Breakfast in bed. photo IMG_9627_zpspmryylxk.jpg

Breakfast is stored in the fridge.  Once you checked in, there will be  fruits in basket, fresh milk, bottled orange juices, homemade bread, butter and jam. Separately, coffee and tea are placed in glass containers. So all we need to do was to place the slices of bread into the toaster and boil the water. Lovely. photo IMG_9685_zpsgxvhwduv.jpg

… and this is the room I slept in. photo DSC_0769_zpskllgve6b.jpg

 Enjoyed myself running around taking pictures. Every corner is worth a click. photo DSC_0686_zps6ehptgfk.jpg

Here is where the Club House and The Straits Restaurant & Bar located, where their signature gula melaka ice cream is served. photo DSC_0694_zpsdmvl83lz.jpg photo DSC_0697_zpsgrs7f9mf.jpg

Facility  – There is a swimming pool right in front of the Chinese House. Can always dip in to have a relaxing swim surrounded by the greens. photo DSC_0737_zpso7w0evmo.jpg photo DSC_0743_zpsxnmlefew.jpg photo DSC_0725_zpsgqhbbrji.jpg

Cute, aren’t they?
