15 Luxurious Tropical Airbnb Escapes in Selangor to Bookmark
Airbnb has mostly been known for providing travellers around the world with a budget-friendly option to accommodation while opening the lodging market to individuals with a spare bedroom or a spare house or two. For this list, we’re forgoing budget for luxury. Here are 16 of the most luxurious tropical-themed Airbnbs you can get in Selangor and a Rojak Daily suggestion of what you can do there: 

1. Explore The Woods without leaving the urban jungle of Kuala Lumpur

 
Location: Jalan Bukit Desa
Maximum guests: 16
Bedrooms: 3
Beds: 4
Property type: Villa
Pet friendly: No
Minimum stay: 1 night
Cost per night: RM2,000 or RM125/person

The villa is also an on-going event space and security is tight. There is a CCTV at the entrance to detect any dubious activities and if there are more than 15 guests, a different rate will be charged. It is unclear if the pick-up service is for event groups only. Contact Woods to find out.

2. Live like a king in this glorious tropical resort in Bangsar


Location: Jalan Bukit Desa
Maximum guests: 12
Additional guests: RM108/night
Bedrooms: 6
Beds: 7
Property type: Villa
Pet friendly: Yes
Minimum stay: 2 nights
Cost per night: RM2,336 or RM195/person

No, we can’t believe our eyes either. Featuring an open plan design with multiple zones, living spaces are split into two: upstairs and the poolside villas. All rooms house their own private bathrooms. The L-shaped swimming pool outside has a 15 metre-long lap-lane that runs through a glass-bottom gazebo sitting above the pool. The kitchen is off-limits but there is a chef to cater to your needs and a host is available should you require it (say no if you’d like to be left alone). All guests are required to register by providing their full names, a copy of their passport and contact details. No unauthorised guests are allowed, so no throwing private parties without notice. Smoking is not allowed… also no shoes on the wooden floors; they scratch easily.

The Carpe Diem Orchard Home in Serendah is actually a retreat on its own right that lists the entire place on Airbnb.

You may have to speak to the owners to find out rates for individual chalets and clarify the cost beforehand.

You can BBQ, fish, go jungle trekking, get a local guide to bring you into the forest reserve and if you require, private transportation can be arranged at a price. Lastly, bring insect repellent.
