Lenggong charm | Suka-Suka Lake Retreat

Celebrating Raya in Suka-Suka Lake Retreat.
Came as a surprise to me as well.
You heard me right alright. This place reminds me of Terrapuri in Terengganu and Pasir Belanda in Kelantan. To know one that is so near is definitely exciting.

Located in Kampong Kelantan, Lenggong, Suka-Suka Lake Retreat is the brainchild of En. Aziz, a family-owned resort managed by both husband and wife, together with their son (and of course their domestic workers). A kampong style resort nestled by the morning mist of Tasik Raban, surrounded by the sound of mother nature. Its stream strokes ever so gently on the resort’s shoulders,  migration birds singing as if there’s no tomorrow and the chilly breeze caressing one’s face along with the morning sun. That’s how calm Suka-Suka Lake Retreat is and why guest kept coming back. And also why I fell in love with Suka-Suka at the first sight, and I bet you will too.

Consist of a rumah ibu (or what I would like to call it, if name has yet been given that is) where guest register, meet with the owner, have their meal, read books and mingle (a common room so to speak), with a few other houses catering for 2 – 6pax; each with its own unique view. Reminds me of home away from home.

With such setting, I begin to wonder on activities they have instore for guests. Well well well… Not that it took me off guard but knowing the fact that some valuable thoughts were put into it does deserve some brownies points I would say. Fishing, for one is its biggest attraction, then there’s sunrise boating and cruising excursion (which is just my type of activities) at Tasik Raban, for those history geek (UNESCO hunter), you can always head to Lenggong Archeological Museum and learn about Perak Man. Worry not food lovers, aside from the famous ikan pekasam or fermented sour fish that you can check out and try, you can also venture into their town and sample local delicacy such as Kebebe, Masak Lemak Pekasam Loma, Gulai Umbut Pisang Hutan, Belotak, Kerabu Umbut Tepus Gajah and Rendang Daging Masak Hitam.

Then En. Aziz said something that caught me by surprise, apparently there are families who found home in this quaint secluded place that it has been their yearly event to celebrate Raya (Eid Fitr) here; and the works. From bakar lemang, anyam ketupat, right to main mercun… Suka-Suka Resort happily welcomes and entertains them.

It is hard to not like this beautiful place, serene, captivating and full of warm that hours and days passed by ever so quickly.

Go and experience it yourself *wink*.
