Sisters before Misters getaway to Aman Dusun Orchard & Farm Retreat in Hulu Langat

I struggled with blogging about this place at first because I just love it so much and I wanted to keep it to myself and friends.

It would pain me if this place became too difficult to book (like the other more well-known retreats) and worse, if the price went up too much (like the other more well-known retreats).

But as my hubs put it, I should never hoard and should always share the love.

And so, here it is…my review of Aman Dusun Orchard & Farm Retreat in Hulu Langat.

# – The Aman Dusun’s Riverview House.

For a first-timer, it might be slightly difficult to locate Aman Dusun as it’s neither on Waze nor Garmin. What I did was search for “IKBN Dusun Tua” on Waze and it took us to this yellow metal bridge on Batu 16 road, where an Aman Dusun staff subsequently met with us and directed us to the retreat.

If you haven’t asked for someone to meet up with you, please turn immediately left after crossing the bridge onto a smaller kampung road and just keep going straight till you reach the Aman Dusun goat’s farm.

Sin Loo who only joined us a bit later asked me while I was giving her directions, “Go straight? How to go straight? It’s a winding road with many left and right turns???”. I told her to just follow her instinct and she made it so I figure you will too hahaha.

Hardly an hour drive from Petaling Jaya, Aman Dusun Orchard & Farm Retreat is a true hidden gem.

While the main business of Aman Dusun is a privately funded goat’s farm producing the most delicious goat’s milk I have ever tasted, the owners have also built two beautiful houses right by the river that runs through their 4 acres land.

They are the Riverview House and the Blue House, we picked the former as it has a private pool and accommodates a smaller group.

# – The goat’s farm. By the way, we bought like a dozen bottles of goat’s milk when we left cause they were so tasty! Surprisingly light and odourless. Owner said this is due to the special breed of goats they have.

The Riverview House sleeps 7 comfortably, with 3 bathrooms and has a fully functional kitchen. All the bedrooms come equipped with air-conditioners. Oh yeah, did I mention the pool?

We wasted no time in kicking off our slippers and began our holiday!

# – Posers.

# – Serious discussion….not!

# – Midnight cheese platter time!

# – Breakfast was provided by Aman Dusun, a sumptuous spread of curries, roti canai, deep fried bananas and we added some of the fruits we brought from home.

This place is perfect for some quiet bonding with friends and family. The surrounding is peaceful and quiet with only the sounds of the pool’s water fountain and insects to accompany us.

Needless to say, Aman Dusun has completely shot up to the top of my staycation spot list due to its location, facilities and sheer gorgeousness.
