It was still a wonderful Valentines date. The place was beautiful as if you wan a rainforest escape. Was a lil surprised with the way up to the resort, but we got it. The foreign staffs are amazing as in they would try whatever best to please your request, very flexible and easy going. The views u’ll get, mmmmmm.

Before I experienced Malihom myself, I've read multiple positive reviews on the service and place overall. In preparation to the estate, I packed some food and drinks, worried I might not have access to enough food due to the secluded location of Malihom. However, I cannot be more surprised by the generous servings of food (prepared so deliciously and healthy too!) and the service which was provided by the staff. Shoutout to Masud for going above and beyond to provide us assistance in any way possible, and the receptionist staff (did not get his name unfortunately) for being so helpful during our check-in process. The hospitality they've provided is truly mind blowing!

Liked · Great location. Quiet in the day time. Staff were really helpful and friendly and explained a lot about the local plants and area. Lots of tasty food! Disliked · Probably should just be full board as there isn’t anywhere else to go to eat or get drinks. Don’t forget your ear plugs as it can be noisy at night with the air con. Arrange a transfer to MaliHom as most taxis/grab drivers won’t want to drive up the very steep road there and it’s a long walk!

Liked · It was super clean! A very well maintained place. Such blissful Hill! Clean Water.. Clean Air!! Plus courteous Mr Masud made our stay memorable! Disliked · If they could offer lunch & dinner for a cheaper price it would be certainly better & more guests would opt to eat at the property instead of going out of the property.

Malihom offers a terrific way to experience the sheer beauty of this special part of the island. Having read the reviews, we were prepared for the (very) steep drive up the hill, but felt comfortable with the ability of the driver - who was arranged by Malihom - to deliver us safely. In fact I would say that the journey there is part of the experience, marking the transition from the busy urban development of Georgetown and the main highway through to the airport, through to a uniquely imagined and realised escape. We were lucky enough to be the only guests for the two nights we were there, and we revelled in the chance to soak up the many qualities of Malihom - its lovely rustic accomodation, the beautifully designed and maintained landscaping, the pure air and water, and the host of peaceful spaces in which to lounge, relax and dream. The staff are special too. They clearly share a love and commitment to the place while also demonstrating warmth and professionalism. It was a privilege to be looked after by Rana in particular, who is a lovely person and did an excellent job of anticipating and looking after our needs. The food was a perfect match for the surroundings - honest and healthy, homey but also refined, with large servings that were meticulously prepared and presented. Thank you Malihom. This was a treasured part of our first trip to Penang.
