Some would think that they are in Phuket, Thailand or even Guangxi Province in China. That’s because the tower karst hills at The Haven are a rare geological feature that are only found in a handful of sites in Southeast Asia, besides the Kinta Valley!

As you can see from my photos, more than 80% of the entire resort is natural, left untouched by development. The limestone hills will continue to be there for millions of years.
