Are you craving for a mid-year holiday, but undecided on soaking up on Vitamin-Sea at a beach getaway or escaping the city life in a serene rainforest resort? The Kasturi encapsulates the reality of being embraced by land and sea, with the resort strategically built on an 800-metre beach stretch seconds away from forested dunes. Located just a 3-hour drive away from the hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur, this 5-star resort founded by one of Malaysia's highly respected architects, Hijjas Kasturi, stands tall and proud among world-renowned names in the hospitality industry.
Owner and architect of The Kasturi, Hijjas Kasturi, had a vision in mind when structuring the resort before its launch in 2016. He made sure to minimize the architecture of the resort from touching the ground by elevating walkways and structures to conserve the natural habitat of the surrounding as much as possible. Small plants were saved from the inevitable clearing, while a majority of the resort’s construction was built around the forest’s trees. In further efforts to care for the environment, solar-assisted air conditioning are installed in the main building, while future plans to install more solar panels on the car park roof are due in the coming few years.
