There’s a place called The Acacia Retreat, a resort in Bentong on the edge of the Krua Wildlife Reserve in Malaysia, some 46 km from Kuala Lumpur.
It’s a part of the world that encourages you to get back to basics; as children and adults alike spend lesser hours outdoors preferring to be huddled with their hi-tech gadgets and computers, we reverse this on a 360-degree scale.
Outdoor recreation promotes wholesome physical development. Explore the acres of green environment, develop your muscle strength and coordination and gain self-confidence – that’s the miracle of being nature’s best buddy.
Here, find all of your favourite pastimes of the bygone era resurrected to life – games and sports inherited and passed down generations of descendants to those of the 21st century.
Rise with the sun, frolic with nature and set with the moon.

The Acacia Restaurant & Café
Wood is a main theme of the interior design at The Acacia Restaurant & Café. Consistent with the green and wooden theme on the ground floor, the café’s chairs, tables and wall décor are made from recycled wood and spare planks. The masterpiece of the café is the “feature wall,” made entirely from recycled wood pieces.
We offer great food and atmosphere with plenty of options. Rice, vegetables, fish and fresh herbs and spices are essential elements for local Malaysian authentic cuisine. Turmeric, which has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, are often included in lists of so-called "super foods". The attractiveness of the food, the richness of the flavours and the emphasis in communal enjoyment of the meal make dining an experience that should not be missed.
