(After the lifting of the Restriction Movement Order, of course)

When the RMO has been lifted, and we are relieved to have finally flattened the curve, what’s the next thing to do? Go for a stress busting holiday of course! Make your booking for a rustic kampung-style living at Carpe Diem Orchard Home, Serendah. But where is Serendah? Some sort of quaint, sleepy town? What can you do at Carpe Diem Orchard Home? Any places to explore and what activities are there in the Orchard?

Well, Carpe Diem Orchard Home is about 3km away from the quaint town of Serendah. Step into our Orchard set amidst 18 acres of rolling greeneries. There are fruit trees in abundance, ranging from durians, rambutans, pulasan, jackfruits, mangosteens and cempedak to name a few. There’s a fish pond stocked with various types of fishes for your fishing pleasure. And nope, you can’t bbq the fish, it’s strictly catch and release. There’s a 3 level swimming pool at the main building where the common hall and kitchen are located. There are many activities to keep you occupied at Carpe Diem Orchard Home. Check out this link to a full list of activities at the Orchard.
