This way to Temple Tree

 

In 2008 Temple Tree, sister to Bon Ton Resort was opened. It
is a larger grouping of antique dwellings coming from several states around Malaysia. The houses in Temple Tree are more town house style, a bit more colonial, whereas its neighbour Bon Ton, is more village stilt home in nature. Antique buildings of various cultural heritages have been relocated and lovingly preserved. From a Chinese farmhouse to a Malay nobleman’s home, each residence
is unique and considered a living museum. While Bon Ton and Temple Tree are sold and thought of collectively, each resort has its own identity. Perhaps because of the size and the fact that the houses once belonged to wealthy town folk, Temple Tree is a little more sophisticated than Bon Ton, but still in a rustic kind of way. With each residence being distinct, the best way to choose is by looking at the pictures on the website.

Feline Resident
The owners of Bon Ton and Temple Tree work towards bettering the life of animals on the island. Self-funded, they have set up shelters for cats and dogs under the LASSie program and employ the island’s only veterinarian. Cats have adopted this location as their home and treat it as their own resort – lazing by the pool, stretched out on deck chairs, snuggled with a partner on the verandah, making eyes at the guests and charming their way into your lap or even your house if you allow. A few dogs reside here too. Calm and friendly, you can volunteer to take one for a walk. But, beware! These canines are just as endearing as their feline counterparts and you might truly want to take one home. Animal lovers will adore this resort. Known for their quirkiness in terms of what they offer, their unconditional passion for these stray animals is clear.

Entrance to Farmhouse
Temple Tree has its own kitchen and patio style dining, the Straits Club, but just as is the case with Bon Ton Resort, guests are welcome to use the facilities of either. Offering more of a modern western style menu using local ingredients, Straits Club warrants a number of visits. Two lap pools fringed with white cushioned recliners and umbrellas propose peaceful spots to cool off or catch up on some reading. Tripods, a book for identifying local birds, sarongs, thongs and muscle balm are just a few thoughtful touches
guests can look forward to. A light continental breakfast is put in your fridge in the evening and a French press allows you to brew coffee and tea. DVD’s, books, magazines, Internet, board games and a snooker table are all suggestions
for those needing further occupation.

Wooden Bathtub
The houses have a sense of serenity. There’s something quite
beautiful about an old wooden home that has natural light and air streaming through. The history and cultural heritage evident in each habitation whisper mystery and intrigue. Operated in the same spirit as Bon Ton Resort, Temple Tree is a relaxed abode for a casual family getaway.
Reason to visit: a sophisticated rustic experience, a chance to help the animals of Langkawi
through support of the LASSie program, quiet relaxed location

  1. Very interesting name there. Gosh, love that bath tub! Feel like soaking in there now 🙂

  2. Very ethnic, this one… More for the tourists.

  3. you know how the phrase "it's a dog's life" usually has negative connotations? judging from how the felines frolic here at temple tree resort, i think "it's a cat's life" would be something i'd want for myself! 😀
