Ipoh is a town known for its heritage, traditions and history but it has also found a way to do it while keeping with the times. Sekeping Kong Heng is a testament to this with a unique blend of a homestay experience offering modern amenities in a renovated 90 year old building in the form of the legendary Kong Heng coffee shop.
Sekeping Kong Heng is located just above the legendary Kong Heng coffee shop that is renowned for its coffee and local dishes. So, food is definitely available in abundance and you don’t us to tell you that Ipoh has some of the best foods in the country. Out of respect for the legendary coffee shop, Sekeping Kong Heng retains as much of its original characters and lightweight partition walls and ceilings are used. An extension was also done to add in an inner courtyard tucked away in the back with a dramatic stairway that leads guests to their rooms. Now rejuvenated, Sekeping Kong Heng is a testimony to Ipoh’s decadent past offering guests a slice of history within an old town setting which is alive, working and real.
The retreat has a communal space upstairs for all guests to enjoy with a 40-inch television complete with a DVD home theatre system, board games and hammocks and charpoy daybeds acting as a form of relaxation and stress-free living while you are transported back to the days when life was at a much slower and relaxing pace. Your standard room is equipped with beds lined with mosquito nettings, a wonderfully designed shower and bathroom. Should you feel the need to connect with your friends while you are away, you can do so with the wifi internet access made ready for all guests to enjoy.
Wake up to the heady aroma of white coffee that perfumes the air in the mornings, listen to the cacophony of banter between hawkers, go on a culinary adventure and experience living in the heart and soul of Ipoh – an old school shop house living experience.
