Everyone knows where Port Dickson and Melaka are, but many may not know that between these two popular tourist destinations, there is a quiet little kampung with stunning beachside resorts

Located at the border between two states, Kuala Linggi is actually a constituency in Melaka but shares the same pretty beaches with Port Dickson in Negeri Sembilan.

It's an underrated tourist destination but is perfect for those who are looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway.

Only one and a half hours away from the hustle and bustle of the Kuala Lumpur city centre, this destination is easily accessible but still offers seclusion and privacy.

Desa Balqis is one particular resort in Kuala Linggi that should be on everyone's must-visit list.

It's designed to look like a small kampung, complete with 20 traditional Malay wooden houses.

The chalets come in different shapes and sizes.

Whether you're on holiday as a couple or a big family, there's definitely space for you.

Bilik Adik and Bilik Kakak can accommodate two people comfortably.

While families of two to six people can opt for Rumah Penghulu, Rumah Pak Cik, Rumah Mama, Rumah Balqis, or Rumah Kak Long and Rumah Kak Lang.

On the other hand, larger groups of up to 15 people can check out the Rumah Pak Long, Rumah Pak Lang, and Rumah Pak Ngah.

The chalets truly capture the essence of traditional Melaka architecture, boasting vibrant and grandeur staircases

It's the perfect backdrop for a photo-op. It's not every day you find something like this, especially when you live in KL.

Not only that, the resort also comes with a spacious pool and rooms with ocean views

This video shows the view from the verandah of Rumah Kak Lang:

The walk from the chalets to the beach takes roughly two minutes. And the beach is clean and calm, with no big crowds.

The view is breathtaking. Being so close to the Kuala Linggi International Port, you'll be able to see ships pass by in the water.

If you're feeling peckish, there's a seafood restaurant within the resort

They serve dishes such as butter prawn, tom yam, and a variety of fried rice. The food is so good that Desa Balqis guests are not their only customers.

Rates at Desa Balqis start from only RM160 per night

So, what are you waiting for? Time to plan your next getaway!
