    Our resort is located in Kubang Kerian, near to Kota Bharu, in state of Kelantan, North East Malaysia.

    Our resort located in a traditional Islamic Malay village, here you can find peace and tranquility of simple yet fascinating village life. We are located on the bank of Pengkalan Datu river, where locals go fishing and clam digging. We have a stingless bee farm and organic garden.

    We are located around 6km to Kota Bharu, Kelantan and about a 25-minute drive from Sultan Ismail Petra (KBR) Airport. The place is managed by local Malay family with the help of volunteers from all around the world.

    We have around 10 accommodations (private rooms & dorms), an event hall, a restaurant, campsite and few farms contains more than 20 species of vegetables and all of it are free from pesticides and herbicides. Leftover food, leaves, and some other elements are turned into compost to eventually be used as fertilizers here in out organic farm. If you come stay with us you can learn the usage of various green leaves & plants for your health benefits and household.

    We also looking for volunteers to share experiences with us about hotel management & photography. We have plenty student & university groups from all over Malaysia. Free access to our kitchen for helping & free foods :)
