Moonriver Lodge is a family owned farmstay nestled in a valley of the lush mountains of Sigar Highlands.

Here one can lie in a hammock, looking out into the garden at the green expanse that soothes the eyes and calms the soul. This is a space where children can roam freely along the food garden paths, run through the food tunnel and play with Webby the duck or Zorro the cat. This is a space where nature lovers can watch hummingbirds and butterflies drinking nectar from the flowers and listen out for the distant call of the monkeys.

Here at Moonriver Lodge, we seek to provide not just a relaxing stay but also the opportunity to learn about nature, growing food or to participate in day-to-day vegetable farming activities. Join a trek to see the second largest flower in the world – the magnificent Rafflesia Kerrii. Hop onto the back of our tractors for a farm tour or participate in one of our fun gardening programme to learn how food is grown. Harvest fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs from our kitchen garden to prepare a healthy, organic meal.

Whatever you do here at Moonriver Lodge, you are bound to leave our gates rejuvenated but with a heavy heart to part with a place you wish was your second home. Because that’s what we try to provide – a basic yet comfortable, beautiful home.

Come stay with us for a taste of country living in a highland hide-away, a “home away from home”.

If you are driving from the North-South Highway, follow the following directions:

-Exit at Simpang Pulai (EXIT 137), turn right to drive towards Ipoh
-Look out for turning on the right towards Cameron Highlands at a traffic light junction
-Stay on this road up a winding road through the mountains. The road leads to Gua Musang (Kelantan) and Cameron Highlands.
-When you come to an intersection, DO NOT TURN RIGHT INTO CAMERON HIGHLANDS. Stay on the road and head towards Gua Musang.
-After passing the intersection, you will pass by Blue Valley farms, a strawberry statue followed by a big mosque on the left.
-When you see the mosque, look out for a SMALL Moonriver Lodge signage on the left. The sign bears the Moonriver Lodge logo (two dancing rabbits against a full yellow moon) and states a 10km marker.
-Continue on the highway for another 5-10 minutes. You will pass a sign stating “Pejabat Tanah” and the SECOND Moonriver Lodge signage with the 1km marker.
-Drive on until you see a turn off to the left with road barriers, lamp posts and another two Moonriver Lodge signs. Turn left and drive up following the bend. --Stay on the road until you come to a gate with a wooden Moonriver Lodge sign in front of the building on the right. Turn right pass the gate and immediately turn left. Continue on til the end of the drive way and park your car. You’re here!
-If you start to drive pass Orang Asli settlements along the road, it is quite likely that you’ve missed the turning.
-Word of caution: Please try to check in before dark as many people have had problems trying to get to our lodge at night. On some days (and nights), a heavy fog sets in along the roads, making it even more difficult to find us.

If you require transfers from Ipoh , please contact the Lodge in advance to arrange.
