Alang Manja , Gombak ~ Selangor


| Trip Rates | Hotel/Trip Description | Map: location...


The charming kampung style house that is the main focus of Alang Manja was originally built in the 1950s by an English planter for his young Malay wife. It was later dismantled from its original site beside the famous Batu Caves and reassembled on its present premises within a forest reserve. The famed Sungai Gombak runs alongside the property providing a cool respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.

After several haphazard extensions and modifications, the house fell into neglect and disrepair. During that period, the whole property was tenanted out and served as a makeshift motivational eco-camp for school children.

Lovingly restored as nearly possible to its original state by its current owners, Alang Manja presently offers guests a glimpse into the last halcyon days of old Malaya and its transformation into a new and proud nation that is now Malaysia.

Alang Manja is a family owned retreat. The owners take great pride in offering their guests a comfortable stay amidst rustic simplicity. The owners are no newcomers to the vicinity, with their family having owned properties in Gombak for the last four generations.
