Here are our favourite places for a weekend getaway in KL and Selangor:
Located in the southern part of Klang Valley, Tadom Hills offer a tropical and serene getaway. Just 45 minutes from KL, you will be taken to a different world where houses are made of bamboo. Take your pick of water activities at their lake or opt to go an adventure. Whether you want to cosy up with a book while listening to nature or have a fun-filled and thrilling weekend, this is the place for you.
Strip away from the lavishness of this world and do away with basic necessities at Sekeping Serendah. Reconnect with yourself while listening to the calls of nature in this forest setting environment. It is the perfect place to disconnect from the outside world. In the day, go on jungle treks, swim in the pool or venture outside the retreat to chase waterfall, or visit an Orang Asli village to learn more about their way of living.
If you are up for a quirky stay, why not choose to stay in a container? Let it transport you to the field of gold of maturing paddy field or a sea of green when it is planting season. Apart from enjoying your view, you also get to jump away on their trampoline, channel your inner Tiger Woods at mini-golf putting or let the kids enjoy a splashing time at the kiddies’ pool.
Perfect for those who can’t get away from work but want a change of scenery; Sekeping Jugra offers a living and co-workspace. It consists of 8 courtyards that surround a single-storey house built in the 1950s. Explore the living and working space via narrow alleyways, gardens and courtyards.

Go back to ‘kampung’ and experience orchard living at Carpe Diem. Stay in traditional kampung home with some modern facilities and communal space.
