Review: Keriang Hill Kedah, Back to Kampung Life


Yuhuu! Recently we went to Alor Setar for Kedah Fashion Week 2018 and we were so glad to be able to stayed at Keriang Hill Resort. It’s like back to Kampung Life, we love to be surrounded by lush greenery with Gunung Keriang as the backdrop, the serenity and of course the kampung house. Let’s check it out.

Basically, Keriang Hill Resort is located at the foot of Keriang Hill or Gunung Keriang. It’s about 10km or 20minutes drive from Alor Setar. The resort is surrounded by greenery, paddy field, and rivers.

Plus The Paddy Museum or Muzium Padi of Kedah is just next to the resort. Kedah is consider the “Rice Bowl” or “Jelapang Padi” of Malaysia, therefore along the road we see paddy fields on left and right too. For first timer, it is a must to get down and take photo at the paddy field.

The resort has 15 hut or pondok that were built with concept like kampung house, each house has a different design. Do you know that the kampung houses are transported to Keriang Hill from different towns of Kedah. It’s like village resort within the vicinity of city.

My hut is equipped with air-conditioner, water heater, living room, working area,  toilet and bathroom, television, dvd player, iron, mini bar, coffee tea making facilities, and king size bed. The hut design is traditional but equipped with modern facilities. However, there is no wifi in the room, you can have a stronger signal at the restaurant or reception area.
