The Roots Eco Resort is a brand new eco resort near Tanjung Rambutan, Perak at the base of the Kinta Hills, on the backbone of Peninsula Malaysia. Situated among Fruit orchard on the shore of Kinta River, the resort is easily reached by road from Ipoh, approximately 12 kilometers away.
Resort owners Bridget Hedderman and Peter Witzigmann started the resort with an emphasis on “eco-friendliness”. It was developed with minimum impact on the environment.The owners work closely with local guides and nature reserves to ensure that activities offered to guests will benefit the local community and contribute to conservation efforts as well.
The resort, which opened in July, organises eco-field trips for tourists and locals including students. The trips run from three to 10 days and guests get to visit an Orang Asli settlement, plantations and rainforests. They can try caving, cooking Malay dishes and playing traditional games. Whether you are a supporter of nature conservation or not, it’s still a new experience going to sleep in a tree.
