Wonderful Weekend Getaway at Sri Damai Clear Water Sanctuary Golf Resort, Batu Gajah, Perak.

April 22, 2017


If you are in Malaysia and you have limited time for holiday, or you just want a weekend getaway or even for tourist to get difference experience living in a nature environment, here I can recommend you the best private place to spend your time to relax and enjoy your sweet time. 

Located at Batu Gajah, a city in Kinta District, Perak , Malaysia is a very unique place and have interesting history as the name Batu Gajah , Batu is stone and Gajah is elephant in Malay language is  from two large boulders that resembled elephants  found along in Kinta River . In history, they believe that the elephant figures were made of stone to scare away the elephant from destroyed their sugar cane.

Sri Damai Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Resort, best name as its look because when you stay here, you will see an open lake for sanctuary and best view for golf course. Even you are not even interested or know how to play Golf ( Like Me ! ) it’s a worth place to stay. Trust me!  

Sri Damai Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Resort also has been rated as Top 5 Best Golf Course in Malaysia from 1997 - 2010 by Golf Malaysia Magazine Course Poll. That's an additional great things why you should go here.

This place is so suitable for solo trip or spends your quality time with your love one and family.

For me, stay here for 2 Days and 1 Night are still not enough because once you stay here, I believe you don’t want to leave!

The reason why because you can feel relax, calm and the most important is you not even hear noise pollution. The only thing you will hear are visitor’s and resort’s transportation, bird singing, water splashing and people playing sport.
