Always heard people talking about Janda Baik at Bentong, Pahang. What brought to my attention was their description of Janda Baik as a tranquil village surrounded by greens with cool weather and not very far from KL. Working in the hustle and bustle city, we always need a getaway to escape from the busy life. After surveying, my husband and I decided to bring our girl to Janda Baik for her adventure of exploring the nature. Out of about 80 resort/chalet choices from affordable type to luxurious style, we had chosen Tiarasa Escapes Glamping Resort attracted by its treetop and tent style villas.
It was a 45 minutes drive from KL to Tiarasa Escapes. Finally we booked Treetop Villa as our accommodation. Upon checking in, we were surprise to see the villas which were actually built in the jungle! We saw branches and leaves from our room, heard birds chirping and insects humming around the trees. On the other hand, the wooden building crafted from recycled wood was really spacious with a large bedroom, bathroom and a balcony.
It was around 4pm in the afternoon after settling down. We walked around to explore the charming landscape and unique villa designs of Tiarasa Escapes. Beside the Treetop Villas which we were staying at, there are 5 other types of tented accommodation available, vary in sizes and amenities to meet different traveler’s needs. I like the concept of glamping. It was like camping in the wild, but still be able to enjoy the convenience and facilities of modern world.
After barbeque dinner, the everyday highlight before night falls at Tiarasa Escapes is the ceremonial lighting of the bonfire at sunset. We had been anticipating for this moment. Residents and staffs gathered around, exchanging stories with each other like one family. It was a fresh experience for us and it was exciting! We went for a stroll before watching movie relaxingly under the starry moonlit sky – another first-time experience! If you are not into movie watching, there is a Celestron telescope for you to observe the galaxy too. I must say the programs at Tiarasa Escapes are all well-planned and carefully carried out. I could see everybody enjoyed themselves very much!
We woke up the next morning accompanied by the sweet concerto of the nature – chilling breeze, rustling leaves and trickle of the stream. Breakfast was sent to our room and we could take our time to enjoy the food. The cooling weather of Janda Baik made outdoor activities easy for us. We joined the nature walk and bird watching and our little girl did not complain at all! For travelers who have booked for 3 days 2 nights stay, there are many other interesting activities can be explored like paintball games, ATV ride, arts & crafts or you could even take cable car to Genting Highlands for shopping. We heard quite a few local film shootings were taken place here. It made this place a popular check-in venue not to miss be missed. Besides that, Tiarasa Escapes also offers a series of corporate training programs and tailored package for wedding and other celebrations.
After sports activity we were all hungry. We had our picnic by the river to settle our lunch. Before leaving the place we did something meaningful to the environment which was to plant a plant, hoping it would grow up one day and be the shelter of fauna in the jungle. We took a lot of nice photos this time and a lot of unforgettable memories thanks to the beauty of the nature. There are many more exciting things to be explored. Bye for now beautiful Tiarasa Escapes. We will come back again!
