The word Sasterawan is malay for writer / poet / novelist; inspired by a local writer who needed a quiet space to complete her novel. It is spacious, has a kitchen / living area with surrounded glass sliding windows to let in the light and breeze. It is very bright and has a leafy surrounding view and is near the swimming pool.

Evensong is an old English word meaning evening prayer. It is the smallest room we have, suitable for a couple only with no space for additional beds. It has a balcony with a retractable awning and the best sky and valley view of all our rooms. It is also right next to the pool for easy, all day swims.
Senjja is an intentionally misspelled malay word meaning dusk. The newest addition to the Awanmulan family, made of old cargo containers and wood. It is also our coolest room due to its freestanding stilt design, thin metal walls, shaded location and plenty of cross ventilation. It has a leafy and setting sun valley view. It is very private being the furthest away from the swimming pool and has a lovely balcony to wile away the day.
Durian Runtuh translates directly from malay to mean falling durian (the spiky pungent king of fruits loved by Malaysians). Due to its position beneath durian trees, fruiting season sees it being a catchment for the falling fruit of gold. It also is a malay proverb meaning windfall / good fortune. It has two individual en-suite bedrooms, a large kitchen area and open deck overlooking the valley and sunset.
Rahsiah is an intentionally misspelled malay word meaning secret. Its somewhat hidden location underneath Durian Runtuh gives a feeling of a secret place hidden from the attention and notice of the world, great to rest and rejuvenate. It has a large family sized room with two queen beds and an optional add-on single bed. Suitable for four to five people, it also has stairs that lead up to Durian Runtuh for access by larger groups.
