Sekeping Serendah, Rawang



This is a glamping (glam camping) retreat and pre-wedding photography location situated 20 minutes from Rawang. It brings you back to nature, amidst the rainforest, in a venue built for people who love its rustic feel. The sheds and warehouses are pretty basic, with glass, timber, concrete, brick or no walls, trees protruding from the floor, very industrial feel, and 100% rustic. You don't come here for privacy as most of the sheds are pretty transparent and open, however they may need to improve on security as suggested by a customer. 

From Kuala Lumpur, take the North-South Highway (NKVE) north and exit Rawang. After the Rawang toll gate, turn right and head north via old trunk road. Pass busy Rawang town and head toward Serendah (10km). Turn right at 1st set of traffic lights after Serendah Police station. From there, refer to this local map below to find your way to the retreat.

REVIEWS
Oct 2017: Sekeping Serendah - an eco retreat east of Serendah town and a 20 minutes' drive from Rawang. For me, it was an unforgettable first time experience - glamour camping in a tropical rainforest, albeit secondary forest.
I had the great pleasure to attend a friend's wedding held at Sekeping Serendah and thoroughly enjoyed a night's stay in the Timber Shed. My first time there, I went armed with insect repellent. To be 'extra prepared' for your trip, I would suggest reading up on basic tropical rainforest/outdoor survival skills. Close to waterfalls and Perigi Tujuh / Telaga Tujuh Serendah (Seven Wells), there are Orang Asli villages within walking distance of the retreat. This is a place to enjoy nature and the outdoors - recommended for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers.
No WiFi, no mobile network coverage, no TV and no traffic congestion - a wonderful place to escape from the city and civilization. Here, I got to enjoy sounds of the forest and view the night sky without light pollution.
There are 2 swimming pools in the retreat. The sheds/houses have electric lights, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, beds with pillows and sheets.
Personally, this was a 'back to nature' trip. At the end of my stay, I learned to appreciate the world and respect nature a bit more - a time to pause and reflect on the importance of forests and their ecosystems.


Jan 2016: Sekeping Serendah is a private retreat attempting to tread lightly on the land. The very transparent and open sheds celebrate the beauty of the natural environment surrounding them. The sheds are intentionally kept basic and free from lavishness. They are seen more as 'glorifies tents' to provide basic shelter for its inhabitants as they commune with the land.
