Less than two hours away from KL is this luxurious glamping retreat that'll make you never want to leave
Tucked away in Jelebu, Negeri Sembilan, The Hooton Retreat is an ideal place if you're looking for a fun getaway with friends, family, or a peaceful trip with a loved one
The retreat offers several dome-like tents with gorgeous interior and are specially designed to allow sunlight to stream in, while offering tranquil views of surrounding greenery.
There's a 'honeymoon' glamping tent that includes a private outdoor jacuzzi, as well as other domes with double or separate beds.
The domes have air coolers – allowing for proper ventilation – standing mirrors, towels and toiletries, drinking water, umbrellas, and closets.
If you're lucky, you might even spot two resident owls, Misty and Starry, the main culprits behind the retreat's name.
If you're travelling in a larger group, there are two villas that you can rent, each one can accommodate eight to 10 guests
The double-storey villa offers an outdoor swimming pool, a private kitchen, barbecue equipment (provided upon request), air-conditioning, and a sun deck that overlooks a canopy of trees.
The second single-storey villa has a more open concept, with fewer partitions between rooms, so you can chill with your friends, play board games, and just hang out together.
There are a number of activities you can do, such as archery, jungle trekking, visiting a nearby waterfall, or riding ATVs and a flying fox
Jeram Toi waterfall is a mere 30-minute drive away, while Bukit Batu Sawa – a hiking trail – is 12 minutes from the retreat.
At night, you can enjoy a karaoke session, sit by the campfire, or start a barbecue.
When your tummy starts to rumble, there's a cafeteria on-site offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, including its signature banana leaf rice
So if you're looking for your next holiday spot, you can consider The Hooton Retreat!
