Relax in nature”

Malihom Private Estate is a superb location high in the hills with a panoramic view of the city lights and the paddy fields on the west coast. Individual chalets are creatively designed and provide privacy along with a window into the cool natural world. Excellent staff, wonderful home cuisine and a magnificent spring-fed pool. Thanks to Masud and Ashok we were well looked after & recommend Malihom as a wonderfully relaxing getaway🙏

This place was breathtaking. The best getaway without actually having to getaway really far as I am from Penang. The view, the ambience, the zen vibes, it was just absolutely perfect. Since its a remote area and it is situated deep in the forest on a hill, the resort's food is the only option unless you are willing to travel down the hill again...food was mediocre. Besides that, the place was exquisite.

The best place to unwind”

You either really love or hate Malihom. In our case, we absolutely loved it. The place is secluded, although the drive up is challenging. Bring snacks (you wouldn't want to leave for food after arriving) and mosquito repellent patches. The estate is serene, quiet and the best part is, there was little to no interaction and encounter with other guests. There are hammocks in most huts to relax, and also shared hammocks which overlooked the island. The air is fresh and cool, and all water used is (purportedly) from a fresh spring. Food is home cooked although the taste was nothing out of the ordinary. The staff are extremely friendly, and so is the resident cat. The pool is also amazing, and no other guest is allowed to use it when you are (each guest has a 45 minute limit, although you could go as many times as you like in a day, in blocks of 45 minutes). If you want something out of the ordinary and somewhere to get away from it all, this is the place to be.

If you are looking to be one with nature, this is the best place to do so. Everything is perfect, the only problem is that restaurant is not open at all times and how to get food is timed. There are a certain time to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. However the food is beautifully cooked once its time to eat. :) I'd advice to bring snacks from the mainland if you get hungry easily.

Fantastic place to unwind”

Malihom is really a place to just sit back and relax. There is nothing to do up in the hills except be one with nature. The service is great, the staff are kind and helpful and the food is tasty and in huge portions. 😝 However, I do have to say something - the resort is in need of some proper maintenance. There were quite a number of things that needed fixing in my room. Perhaps they are understaffed. I have no issues with that but some guests may not be too happy if their balcony light wasn’t working or their tap was loose. Other than that, Malihom is really heaven with plenty of cool wind!!!

Highly recommend to couple for honey moon. Please do not use normal motor to go up with your loved one. Make sure your vehicle is powerful enough to drive the road. Customer service very helpful. Dinner for us is normal because it’s actually from microwave reheated food and the price is abit expensive. Hope they could do something by themselves to show their passion. Breakfast for us also normal. Suggest to have extra sausage and hash browns because resort price is quite high and we expect to have more food and choices. Swimming pools is excellent, water come from natural hill. Overall is very good because we did some research before we go up.
