House, Botanical Garden, Tatami Spa, Ume Tatami Suite and Ryo Zan Tei Restaurant.
Here, visitors can explore rock pools, koi ponds, flower gardens and a Japanese tea house,
which conducts a traditional tea ceremony several times daily. Surrounded by lush rainforest,
the village is also a popular spot for bird watching, with views of the valley from strategic
points along the gravel trails.

Walking around the garden will soothe your mind as you inhale the fresh air. The beautiful
landscape is full of lush greenery, a great change from the concrete jungles in big cities of
Malaysia. As you walk, you will discover small streams with Koi and ponds in the garden.
Different paths will lead you to different areas of the garden, and one of them leads you to
the Tatami Spa. It offers you a wide array of spa treatments, ranging from aromatherapy and
body scrub to reflexology and outdoor hot spring bath.
4) La Cigogne Restaurant
Since you are already here at this wonderful French inspired place, why not might as well try
French cuisine right? At La Cigogne, they are offering authentic French cuisine which is
unique to here and rare anywhere else. One of the dishes that I think you should give a try is
their chicken breast served with peppers, onions, and light gravy. It is so well cooked yet
juicy and tender at the same time. The mashed potatoes and peppered are also great with
each a strong flavour of their own.
