A place suitable for city-livers who would like to be in touch with nature yet prefer proper amenities or people who wants to seek a quiet serene environment to blend with nature.
This is basically what you can see or do around the area. This map is not scaled to actual. So actually all the places are just rather near to each other. No problem walking around except for some slopes at certain areas.
Tatami hall greets you with a spacious living area for relaxing or playing board or traditional games. All board or traditional games are provided free to play. If the weather is too hot, there are portable air conditioner available for use.
Next to the Tatami hall is the dining area. This is where your meals are served. Plain water (hot or room temperature) is provided as well for consumption throughout the day. Can drinks or package snacks are payable but it’s self service based on trust.
Other places on the ground floor is the kitchen (for staffs only) and common restrooms.
There are other small houses nearby for visitors stay depending on your privacy and view request or number of visitors.
Checking in at 1pm, our first activity started with an introduction by the owner of Eight Acres, Mr. Edward Kam (or Uncle Kam), giving us some insights of Eight Acres’s history and some of the plants and houses around the area. Short but extensive enough for you the understand the effort to bring life to this place.
We then have some ABC (Air Batu Campur). Letting you body to cool before the durian buffet! Simple yet delicious.
At around 3pm, durian buffet commences! We all swarmed around the “durian table” anxiously waiting to put our hands on the yellowish fleshy durians.
After the durian, we can take a dip at the nearby waterfall. Definitely walking distance. It’s just across the main building. Cooling down the heat from the durian eating.
I think it’s also a nice place for children to get close around animals and even to play some exciting games. Here are some pictures of them!
We signed up for a 2D1N Durian festival package which is RM280 per pax, inclusive of a durian buffet, 3 meals, and lodging. Additional fee do apply for some of the games.
