Is that possible? Getting away from the hustle and bustle, right in Bangar itself? Yes, it is! Sekeping Tenggiri is located in a quiet residential lane of Jalan Tenggiri, off Jalan Tandok.
The owner, Ng Sek San, a landscape architect has instilled his touch of sustainability in the place’s décor and immediate surroundings. The place used to be two linked houses, and today, it houses seven rooms and an art warehouse (viewing by appointment only). There are many unique and eco-friendly ideas in Sekeping Tenggiri.
For example, the lamps are made from empty Yakult bottles, cat food tins, milk cartons and even a fruit tray. So practical yet arty! The brick walls are unplastered (brick as it is) and there are even scribbling on the wall. The stools, sofas and bed’s base are made of a mesh of steel frame.
Talk about raw beauty! One more interesting feature is a laundry basket that was suspended in the air. It is used to pull up laundry to the upper floor. It’s creativity at its best!
The common area is available for bookings and consists of a lounge area, splash pool, dining with washing facilities, fridge, microwave oven, filtered and hot drinking water, and ASTRO.
The seven rooms are: glass room (RM300 per night), loft room (RM250 per night), skyview room (RM200 per night), courtyard room (RM250 per night), R garden room (RM200 per night), L garden room (RM200 per night) and poolview room (RM200 per night).
Each room has an open wardrobe, air-conditioner, ceiling fan, TV with DVD player, WiFi internet access, bath towel, naturally ventilated bathroom and hot shower.
There is 24-hour housekeeping service, but there is no restaurant. So you would have to drive out to nearby shops or bring your own stash of food. It is a nice surprise that one can get away and unwind in a unique space in Bangsar that’s orchestrated to calm and comfort you.
