A wooden house, on its own, by the sea...

Consider working from home, with the view of the ocean and sea breeze greeting you every day, while conserving the environment.

A large portion of proceeds from The Resthouse are channeled into our conservation project - Lang Tengah Turtle Watch - on a neighbouring island. We encourage all our guests to spend a day visiting and enjoying this project, to see how your stay is contributing to the conservation of these majestic creatures.

The space
A wooden house, by the sea; entirely on its own, on a promontory - hidden in amongst the trees..

Artist Hayati Mokthar, moved this house from where it was originally: near Ipoh, on the West Coast of Malaysia, 250 km away. It was built by the British Government, between the wars - has not been altered, and is furnished according to the period.

Due to the current travel limitations, long stays (a minimum of 7 days) are encouraged to minimise movement of guests as well as maintain sanitation SOPs in between each visit. It is also preferred that all guests are ages 17 and above.

Currently, all guests are required to partake in volunteer work to support the conservation work of the marine life in Pulau Perhentian and Lang Tengah through:

Option A: A half day trip to our Lang Tengah campsite; a short talk by our knowledgeable staff about the work that we do in the conservation of our sea turtles, a tour of the nests and campsite, followed by a cliff jump at our favourite spot (optional), and snorkeling around the island.

Option B: A quick beach cleanup at nearby Pulau Rawa, followed by gorgeous snorkeling at this and surrounding uninhabited islands.

Option C: For divers, underwater cleanups are possible too.

Option D: A simple beach cleanup nearby The Resthouse.

For the first three options, you would only have to incur the cost of the boat or dive trip to the respective islands and food—which we would highly recommend, especially if snorkelling was already part of your agenda!

Proceeds from The Resthouse goes towards running our projects and with this added involvement from you—our beloved guests, we truly believe this experience would also bring more meaning to your trip, as a great way of helping to preserve our beautiful islands that continue to give so much to us :)
