Weekend get-away at D'Paradise

I was given a free night stay at D’Paradise farm in Melaka. Since the complimentary stay is valued at RM1,000 I took my mum, sis, maid and the kids for a short weekend get-away there.

We stayed in a nice little “kampong” like house on a hill. The bathrooms were attached to the 2 rooms with an open-air environment, where you can look up and see the sky while bathing. We didn’t dare take the chance to do that at night. Who knows, we might just suddenly see eyes popping out of no where.

We were quite concern of the insects as we were scared that the kids will get bitten. There was a bee flying around us and a black, furry caterpillar that was in the house. So, we had to keep a lookout in case the kids start picking on the insects and putting them into their mouths.


In the daytime, we took the buggy and drove round the farm. It was basically a tropical fruit farm. Brendan and Eryn were especially thrilled at the sight of the deers and ostriches. They were just so tame and came up close to us. I was actually surprised that the deers love nangkas (jackfruits). They came running to one huge nangka that were thrown to them and they happily tore it open and ate everything.

Overall, it was a nice get-away though I wouldn’t purposely pay to spend a night there as I get to see these fruits since I get to see lots of it back in my hometown.

Zara's Mama said...

RM1000? That's very expensive.. Don't think I'll go..

mom2ashley, quite ok for a nearby trip.

huisia, the caterpillar is just one of the design at the park. there's actually a cute tree house there as well.

jazzmint, if you've never seen loca fruit trees, it might not really appealing, but might be good info for children.

zara's mama, I wouldn't encourage to stay overnight at all. could be good to just pay to enter the farm if you're into visiting a tropical fruit farm

jseslyn, if it's not for the free stay, I'd never go there due to the expensive fee.

Hijackqueen said...

The open air toilet sound interesting. But guess nothing much to do there, right?

Baby Smooches said...

babykhong, 1k is definitely not that kind of budget for people like us..

laundryamah, don't even consider staying there. I believe there's cheaper hotels around.

hijackqueen, err.... can see the moon, the stars, hear the crickets and YIKES!!! two peeping eyes?! :P
