2D1N at Adeline Villa & Rest House at Gopeng, Perak.

This is one super overdue post oh my goodness. 

Why have I forgotten about you Gopeng? Why? 

Anyways, here I am and here you go. 

You should read this and you would want to slowly scroll down slowly one by one because it was one of the getaways that I've truly enjoyed, even with ZERO signal anywhere in the villa. Yep, ZERO SIGNAL. No wifi too bee-tee-double-lieu. 

We decided to have a weekend getaway here because firstly, my sister and cousins have been there and gave good feedback. Secondly, because there were so many of us, going anywhere further would seem a lil bit more diffcult and the more difficult it is, the lesser number of people it is. Third is because we want to try the white-water rafting (third time for me) so yep, Gopeng it is :)

No one told us that Gopeng was like this. Quiet and peaceful. Not Penang-ish at all excuse me. Straight culture-shock sial. 

The package in inclusive of:
  • 1 buffet breakfast
  • 2 buffet lunches
  • 1 buffet dinner
  • A night stay at multi-sharing room (6 persons for my humongous room).
All sports activities is not included in the package. 

Activities such as white-water rafting, wet-abseiling, caving, paintball and jungle trekking. All need extra moolahs. 

If you ask me, I will rate this package super expensive for a night's stay but the food that was provided is amazing. The spread is superb and they are yummy. So, I would say that it's worth the high price. 

That and they don't only serve normal kind of food okay. I had scallops, crabs, bbq lambs et cetera. Best.

It's about RM220 per pax for a night's stay. You need to call in for more information on the price because I think they have seasonal prices. 

I think no need to give you direction to the place. You can just waze Adeline Villa, Gopeng and the GPS will bring you right to the gate. 

When we got there, it was almost noon time and all white-water rafting slots have been fully booked, so we booked for the next day's morning slot. Since we had nothing to do that day, we decided to join their 4pm jungle trekking + waterfall.

White-water rafting: RM150 per person (rubber shoes and equipment provided)
Jungle trekking + waterfall: RM30 per person

Nothing is free here okay. 

The rooms do not look very grand and all but it's quite comfortable. Every room has different paintings and most rooms (I think) are very animal/jungle-ish themed). 



The only thing about this place is YOU HAVE TO WASH YOUR OWN DISHES! Oh come onnnnnnn! Why people do this kind of things dude? WHYY! Good thing I brought my maid with me on this trip :)

It's very expensive (in my most-honest opinion) to pay so much for just a night stay, however because the place has no signals anywhere and no TV in the room, we had a lot of fun bonding over card games, eating and talking. 

So, if you are looking for a place to chill and seriously bond with your gang, this would be the place. It's not all that boring because you have things like white-water rafting and jungle trekking to do, so that's fun. 

The only thing is you better bring more cash because everything is charged. 

And the food is really good, so I guess it's expensive yes but the food itself is worth the money lah. I just really dislike the wash-your-own-dish part. Bleh. 

I would definitely go again with a group of crazy humans. 

Bye now.
