Relaxing getaway in the jungle at De Serenity, Seremban

If you are looking for a quick getaway from KL suitable for a group of friends, a short drive out of KL (just under an hour depending where you drive from) will bring you to De Serenity Villas near Seremban. Here you will find relaxing jungle views and a refreshing pool overlooking the garden, fruit trees and the forest.

The main villa with four bedrooms is very spacious, clean and well equipped (crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensil, sheets, towels etc.) – have a look at the website for more details. Coffee snobs should pack their own, 3in1 and tea can be found in the kitchen.

There are also two other smaller villas across the pool. If you are a a bigger group, you can rent the whole resort and have the place for yourself. Malani, the friendly owner, will help you before you book your stay but also when you get there.

Breakfast supplies are provided with a possibility of a local breakfast delivered in the morning, otherwise it is self-catering. There is a BBQ ready for you to use in the evening.

We went as two families with three children under the age of 10. Ours was a quick getaway from the city of just one night but we would have actually loved to spend two! We brought supplies to make salads and a something to throw on the grill for our dinner. We spent the day swimming in the pool, relaxing by its side and catching up. There’s a good balance between shady and sunny areas as the sun moves, making spending time outside pleasant. There isn’t much else to do but if you are interested, jungle trekking and small excursions can be arranged.

We made sure the kids brought some toys and books with them so they could entertain themselves. There is also a TV in the lounge. The spacious area on the balcony, with direct view of the jungle and a cooling breeze was a perfect spot for the kids to play their games.

The name of the place – De Serenity – was fully appreciated when the children were in bed and we were sitting at the big dining table, on that wooden terrace, talking and sipping wine, without fighting any mosquitoes, enjoying the soothing noises of the jungle.

If you are looking for a simple villa in the middle of nature big enough to accommodate a bunch of families in a private setting, De Serenity is a good option. There are other, bigger resorts on the same stretch of road along the forest reserve, in case you need more facilities or are not happy self-catering.
