Travelling and a vacation is always good for the body and mind as it gives you that much needed rest both physically and mentally but we don’t do it enough. This experience might change that with a unique retreat that not only gives you the rest you need but also is somewhat of a journey back in time. Back to the days of old town Ipoh where life was just generally more relaxing.
Kong Heng is a legendary coffee shop located in Ipoh known for serving some of the best coffee and local dishes in the country. This is where Sekeping Retreats have made their new home for others, Sekeping Kong Heng is a brilliantly designed guest house that has some of the most contemporary designs while also retaining the characters of the old world of Kong Heng. The retreat reveals an inner courtyard hidden at the back with a dramatic stairway that leads guest to their rooms. Lightweight partition walls and ceilings are used to keep as much of the 90 year old building’s history intact. 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.
For you and your family or friends, your night will be spent sleeping in the Glass House – a spacious room that is made of glass that is supported by wooden beams while prettily sitting partially in the air. This unit offers air-conditioning and beds lined with mosquito nettings. The retreat also offers a communal space in the form of an annexed second floor complete with a 40-inch television with a DVD home theatre system as well as wifi connectivity, board games and books and magazines for leisure. The 24-hour housekeeping service ensures only the best conditions to stay in and a dining area to enjoy those supper meals late at night. Food though is not a problem seeing as you are in the great city of Ipoh where delicious meals are always readily available.
This experience takes you back to the days when life was simple and beautiful, the best of both worlds with a healthy mix of old world and the modern one we live in. Be awakened by the lovely aroma of freshly brewed coffee in the morning going on a culinary adventure and experience living in the heart and soul of Ipoh with a comforting home to go back to at the end of the day. This is Sekeping Kong Heng – a delightful alternative instead of staying in hotels.
