A natural landscape creates the perfect backdrop to our recreation area; located in beautiful mountains with tea plantations that spread out like an emerald sea.

Our gardens and greenhouse take advantage of the cool air that refreshes the body and soul, while the Japanese-style accommodation allows you to relax after a day exploring the surrounding hills and the mini zoo. We also have a cafe on site offering modern cuisine and a place to unwind and enjoy the scenery.

In an age of technology, where we ‘live’ online, Malino Highlands offers a getaway and an opportunity for the community to come together to create a harmonious environment for all generations to enjoy  – to lead an active, thoughtful and happy life together. We are passionate about our commitment to the mountains around us, the eco-system and our impact on the earth.

Our team know the area and can create guided walking tours, bicycle tours or even tours on horse-back so you see the very best of the stunning highlands. And if a slower pace suits you better, take your time strolling through the gardens and greenhouse and finish at the cafe to take in the panoramic views.

Come visit us and learn more about the history, the land and the stunning wilderness that is the Malino Highlands.
