Calling all durian lovers, this one’s just for you! This is a one night stay at Karuna Hill, a boutique Durian Farm.

Karuna Hill

When Lilian and Carl stumbled upon the 6-acre former orchard land in Balik Pulau, they knew that it was an opportunity too good to pass up. Their shared love and passion for Penang and durian fuelled them to start Karuna Hill, where spacious and modernly furnished villas are perched on a hillside surrounded by their organically-grown durian trees. Creating a relaxing space for both themselves and guests to enjoy the stillness of nature, you could definitely say that they have fulfilled their retirement goal and are enjoying the laid back lifestyle! Expect two very warm and welcoming hosts eager to share with you more about durians and ensuring that you have a well-rested stay in Penang!

If you are looking for a place to relax and getaway from the hustle and bustle of the big city and daily life. Friendly and perfect hosts. If you stay during the durian season, you will get to savour the best Penang durians.

Amazing place to stay with the view. As a city dweller, it was refreshing to be able to spend quiet time admidst nature. Food can be found 10 min away by car. Don't be daunted by the drive up, it's definitely worth it. Lilian and her husband are such honest and warm host, they inspired me to think of life differently. In love with this place!

Orchard in a resort. There is no other place like it. If you are willing to climb up the hill for some fresh durian while maintaining peacefulness, this could be the place. No need to worry about the busy traffic. The drive up is not for the faint of heart though. There also have chalets. Quite a price, but oh well, you can expect tranquility here, so you are paying for it as well
