About Zen Forest
Longing for a getaway from the bustling city life? Love exploring the natural environment? Look no further than the Zen Forest for a rainforest retreat. Only 1.5 hour's drive away from Kuala Lumpur, Zen Forest is nestled in a 180-acre private estate adjacent to a forest reserve. Immerse yourself in this perfect environment to rejuvenate, reconnect with nature and rekindle your spirit.
Zen Forest was first started accomodate guest since In November 2021. Unfortunately, the massive flood came on 18 December 2021. The whole Karak was flooded. The facilities and loads of trees in front of Zen Forest resort were washed away. So does the river change its path. There are no electricities and the landslide has blocked the way in & out. Workers and customers were trapped for a few days
Due to the damage from the natural disaster, Zen Forest has temporarily closed down. And we slowly built the facilities and a new bridge for the main entrance. This is why we can see that the river is wider, shallow and has many little rocks.
Zen Forest was reopened at end of February. During
After getting recharged with a good night's sleep, get ready for a 10-minute ride on our four-wheel drive to the summit and reward yourself with a breathtaking panoramic view of the sunrise over a sea of mist above the forested mountains. Brighten up your day with some local breakfasts in the sky while beholding the breaking of dawn and breathing in the air of tranquility.
Back in the villa, delight yourselves in the private pool filled with water from the waterfall without chlorine. Experience the ultimate relaxation by cooling off in the pool while having sips of coffee with the view of lush greenery.
If you haven’t had enough of the water activity, dive into the 30-foot wide river which is only 50 meters away from the villa. In this river with a depth from 4 inches to 3 feet, make use of the natural sand to indulge yourselves in a sand spa. For the non-swimmers, you can still enjoy the river view by taking a stroll along the sandy pathway with 50 meters tall trees on both sides.
Other activities including ATV rides, rubber tapping experience, palm oil harvesting visit, organic farm visit which includes local and overseas fruits and vegetables and more unforgettable events await your visit!
In July 2022, we have opened a campsite and we welcome all to camp at Zen Forest!
