[LANGKAWI]: Temple Tree at Bon Ton

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

Lovely tub with hot and cold water and a shower head.

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

Breakfast in bed.

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.


… and this is the room I slept in.


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

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

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.

Overseeing the beautiful sunset is priceless.
