Sentosa Villa

Top choice hotel in Taiping

Unquestionably Taiping's most attractive place to stay, this complex of villas is alive with durian trees, palm groves and teeming ponds. Chalets have an organic feel, with bare brick and polished wood floors, while split-level family accommodation has fun wooden ladders between rooms. Gathered in the main building are more standard hotel rooms: less sumptuous but tile-floored and well equipped.

Sentosa Villa is 3km east of the town centre. It's located off the road to Bukit Larut – follow the signs. It's best to have a car, or you can taxi to and from the centre (less than RM10).
