Temple Tree

Langkawi, Malaysia


Breakfast is taken in your suite and more than keeps you going until lunchtime. Each suite is equipped with a toaster and tea- and coffee-making facilities. A couple of pieces of bread each, with butter and jam, some homemade cake, yoghurt, bottled juices and generous hunks of fresh fruit are left in the fridge overnight to be enjoyed at your leisure.

The Straits Club, located in the Clubhouse, serves lunch and dinner, as well as a cooked breakfast for brunch should you desire it. Expect western and fusion dishes, for example the big breakfast, an impressive spread of eggs, a lamb roll, a beef patty, fried potatoes, caramelised onions and chilli jam. For dinner, tuck into a 5-spice roasted chicken with cashew rice, or try the hot and sour mango salad. There’s also a bar; frozen daiquiris and margaritas come highly recommended at any time.

Guests are also welcome at the widely acclaimed Nam restaurant at Bon Ton for lunch and dinner. The dining area is extremely atmospheric in the evenings, with soft lighting, colourful textiles and a warm summer breeze drifting through.

Save to favouritesPrintMailTemple TreeTemple Tree is a dream for architectural students; for the rest of us, a beautiful, unique haven. The concept? A collection of classic Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian houses from all over Malaysia, painstakingly reassembled, and divided into 20 [r:MY004:rooms and suites]. Owner Narelle is the brains behind neighbouring [h:MY001:Bon Ton Resort], and the execution of this living museum is spot-on. Each house maintains its own character and Narelle’s eye for interiors is evident in bold colour schemes, which effortlessly blend antique pieces with modern flourishes. It's a fascinating insight to traditional Malaysian living, with the bonus of excellent service. Communal life centres around the beautifully laid-out 90-year-old Straits Clubhouse with its [eating:MY004:restaurant], games room, library and bar. The houses are arranged down a ‘main street’ where saplings sway in the breeze, leading to the resort's swimming pool. Hit the beach for sunbathing or watersports; hire a car to set your own island agenda. Or stay put - the houses are so delightful, you might not want to leave.
