VanaVasa Eco-Resort

VanaVasa Eco-Resort is a 30 room private resort located at the hilltop of Tanarimba, Janda Baik, Pahang. VanaVasa means ‘Back to Nature’ in Sanskrit.

The main-building consist of carpark facilities at the ground level and an open concept dining and lounge terrace flanked by a pool at the first floor, with 10 bedrooms on the 2nd floor. 10 units of chalets (2 units per-chalet) are sporadically spread out throughout the rest of the site, perched along the slopes and accessible via a network of buggy tracks.

​VanaVasa is an eco-resort, designed using sustainable principals. For example there are no air-conditioning provided and natural ventilation is used extensively. Natural materials like concrete, natural brick and bamboo has been carefully selected as the main materials. The chalets are built out of pre-fabricated steel that can be assembled on site without the need for concrete or any wet-trade. This help preserve the site without the need for creating temporary access and thus destroying the natural slopes.

​The resort is expected to open early 2023.
