I still remember the trip up from the Penang Intl.airport. As your ascend, you'll see lush pristine rainforest, and a cool breeze as the temperature drops, and there'll be views of both the sea (Straits of Malacca) and Bayan Lepas (a town with dozens of electronics and semiconductor plants that lits up at night).
Once you enter this place, the architecture of the lodges, he pool, the koi pond, the restaurant and the surrounding hills and trees will captivate you. You'll feel the wind, the sound of leaves ristling, the view and sound of birds and insects and the sense of privacy and serenity.
The Burmese staff serves high quality western cuisines amidst a backdrop of gorgeous scenery. I can't never forget the image and experience of this place. We only hope owners of the nearby surrounding hills do not indiscriminately choo down those pristine leafy trees. Malihom is worth the trip and the experience. I misses it!
