The unique capsules surrounded by the lush forest let me think of the scene of the movie ‘The Hobbit’! This small nature resort began as a simple retreat from the city for the owner’s family. In 2014, the owner, Kevin was inspired by the nature while bringing a friend to visit Sg Lembing to start a place that merges nature and the luxury of the city.

There is an outdoor bathtub next to the mother nature, take your Instagrammable photo here! For nature lovers, do not miss out on the Rainbow waterfall tour while you’re here.
