Malihom Private Estate - Balik Pulau, Penang


The estate comprises a cluster of traditional Thai rice barns which have been carefully converted with modern comforts, while respecting traditional charms.

Named after the rice barns that make up the retreat, Malihom means 'village of the fragrant rice'. Each barn has its own unique name.

Malihom offers 8 barns for rental. Each features individual character with ensuite and bathrooms on the deck level.

At the hub of the estate lies the main wing which centres the reception, dining and living areas. The barns are linked to the main wing by way of footpaths. Each barn, with its own unique character has a private garden or a deck. This arrangement provides guests with their own private space. Our unique picturesque settings provides that unforgettable experience to any occasion whether a romantic stay for two, a family vacation, a corporate getaway or the perfect wedding venue.

We try to conserve and preserve the use of our resources, having a large part of the estate built on recycled wood and building material. The barns were traditional rice storage barns but are no longer used in present day farming, whilst the decking are old abandoned railway sleepers.
