Balik kampung excitement is in the air with Raya preparations fully underway! Malaysians all over the country are looking forward to the holidays this year as families can finally reunite after two long years apart. Whether it’s colour-coordinating brand new Raya outfits, daydreaming of delicious treats or planning getaways with extended family, there’s plenty in store for this year’s celebrations — so why not amp it up with a festive retreat? From a quiet island hideaway with a touch of Malay architecture to nostalgic, traditional kampung houses, check out these seven beautiful Airbnb Stays across Malaysia that will make this a Raya to remember.
Picture yourself waking up in a beautiful traditional wooden home on the first day of Raya, surrounded by stunning gardens, the ocean breeze and a private pool as you settle into a feast and celebrate with your loved ones. If that sounds like the ‘Aidil’ holiday, Alamanda Markisa Villa or Sunset Valley – Farmers House, both located in Langkawi, promise to be the perfect place for your family gathering.
Thinking up fun ways to spend your family gatherings? Rumah Lenggong in Perak and Rimba Alor Orchard Villa in Malacca offer plenty of options to make this long-awaited reunion all the more memorable. Roam the grounds and bring the entire family fruit-picking, or relax together in the outdoor pavilion while reminiscing about the good ol’ days.
For those looking for a more laid back holiday, check out this Cameron Highland-based kampung home, or perhaps this modern villa or a hidden rainforest retreat in Janda Baik where fresh air and gorgeous views abound. Book through Airbnb and enjoy a grand Raya spread surrounded by modern comforts and classic decor while basking in your very own natural paradise.
