Bamboo Village is an environmentally friendly guest house located in the scenic jungles of Hulu Langat, Selangor. Enjoy a surreal experience living in the calm and unique “bamboo style” landscape found nowhere else in Malaysia!

What to expect:

  • The bamboos used to build the complex are imported from Indonesia and have been treated against insect and fungal attacks.
  • Bamboo Village was built with the concept of “Rumah Bambu Taman Sunda” and its Sundanese (an Indonesian ethnic group native to Java Island) influence can be seen throughout the vicinity.
  • All rooms are decorated to make guests feel right at home with personal touches visible all across the complex.
  • The structures are naturally cool without the need for air-conditioning as the bamboos used are rare breeds that have the ability to absorb heat!
  • One unique thing about Bamboo Village is that it offers visitors to stay there for free in a volunteer programme if they stay and work for around 3-5 hours per day for 7 days!

Location: Off Lorong Serai 4, Sungai Serai, Batu 11, 43100 Hulu Langat, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia

Getting there: Just under 1 hour from Kuala Lumpur depending on the traffic, the route starts to get pretty scenic once you went past Cheras but you may encounter some pretty challenging corners. This shouldn’t be a worry if you drive the Honda Jazz for example, as its excellent handling makes for easy navigation and its 5-star safety rating would make you feel assured the whole ride!

Price: Prices start from as low as RM30 per day with a 3 person cottage terrace only RM120 per night!
