FAQ provided by the Owners

Can I come just to see the place, not stay the night?

We would like to protect the privacy of our guests and ourselves. We have limited parking and we try not to crowd the facilities. The Dusun is the private residence of the owners. Only those with prior bookings may enter this property.

Are there mosquitoes there?

Mosquitoes are part of nature; they do exist here. We do not fog – this destroys nature’s balance. We provide vapemats near the beds; fans and the wind will protect you at night. We are careful that there is no standing water in drains, and we rear fish in all our water pots to eat mosquito larvae. However, when you are walking around the orchard it is advisable to use repellant, especially for children.

Can I add extra mattresses and have more people if I pay extra?

Our concept promises space, privacy and peace. This is something guests will not enjoy if houses are filled over capacity. Maximum numbers are non-negotiable for everyone’s comfort.

Why can’t I book a 1 night stay much earlier?

We only take one night weekend bookings 3 weeks before the date in question. For example, if you’d like to stay on Saturday, January 21st, you would only be able to make that booking on January 1 or later.

We try to prioritize longer stays, especially on the weekends. We feel these guests have a more relaxed experience of the Dusun.

Can I do a company trip to the Dusun?

This depends on the number of people you have and the type of experience you’re looking for. Our maximum capacity is 19 people sleeping in 5 houses. Many of the beds are doubles, so if your colleagues are not sharing beds but are ok with sharing rooms, the maximum capacity for the resort is 11 people.

We are the ideal place for you if you’re looking for in-depth discussions with few distractions. We don’t have a conference room with whiteboards but we’re happy for you to bring your own equipment. What we do have is an open-air dining patio under the Angsana trees. We are able to serve all meals including morning and afternoon tea. We can also arrange for activities like jungle treks or guided bird walks. If you’re looking for an alternative to the regular company retreat, you can count on an enriching experience.

Can I throw a party?

You’re most welcome to celebrate a special occasion at the Dusun. However, most of our guests are here for the peace and quiet. The sounds of nature are serene and a rarity in the modern world, we try our best to preserve them here, we hope you will too.

Just remember that our maximum occupancy at one time is 19 adults. We can accommodate a sit down meal for 40 people by special arrangement.

Do I need a 4-wheel drive to get to the Dusun?

We are located on a hill to enjoy great views. We have had all types of cars come up here, from Kancils to Porsches. Just drive on the lowest gear when going up and down. When going up, you need a little momentum; when going down drive slowly.

There are 2 entrances to the Dusun. The one to the main resort is steeper; the one to Perling House is easier. Any guest is welcome to park at Perling House.

Do you have Wifi?

We do not have wifi in our guest houses or common area. If you have a specific need, we are happy to lend you a modem for a short time.

Is there mobile phone service there?

Yes, we do receive mobile service except in Perling House sometimes. Some devices can receive Edge and sometimes 3G.

What do you mean by self-catering?

We are not a full service hotel. Once you arrive and are shown to your house, we pretty much leave you alone. Staff clean twice a day and send meals if you have ordered them. We do not have 24-hour reception. Staff are on duty from 8am to 7pm and the owners are available to attend to emergencies at night.

Is the Dusun dog-friendly?

Yes. Berembun and Emas Houses are dog-friendly because they have large decks within the houses and have dog gates. Dogs cannot use the beds or other furniture and should have their own feeding bowls and beds while they are here. Our patio kitchen is strictly halal and dogs are not allowed in that area.

Can I bring friends who are not staying the night?

Only by arrangement. Extra people can overwhelm our facilities. Also we lock the gates at 7 pm so it is difficult for guests to leave at night. For previously arranged events, we charge RM100 per day guest.

Is the Dusun wheelchair friendly?

Unfortunately, no. We are on a hill and there are many steps between all the different areas.

Is the Dusun suitable for children?

Many children have enjoyed the Dusun. It is a different experience from the city as they can peer at fish and tadpoles, watch frogs hop around and look out for birds in the trees. We have a kid’s pool, a high chair and a baby cot available for guests. We recommend bringing mosquito repellant cream for children. Sora, Emas and Perling are the most suitable houses for children.

What is the cancellation policy?

Cancellations before 14 days of the booked date can be changed to another date at no cost.
Cancellations 14 days or less before the booked date will be charge 50% of one night stay.
Cancellations within 48 hours of booked date will be charged one night stay.
