This open-concept café offers a relaxed setting surrounded by plants and nature noises. The rustic and airy place is ideal for a relaxing time, with an interior reminiscent of a treehouse.

The coffee here is freshly roasted and famous for its aromatic taste, using beans imported from Gayo Highlands in Central Aceh, Sumatra. With each taste, you can expect an earthy yet delicious aroma.

We also recommend the Avocoffee, a creamy blend of iced arabica espresso and avocado.

This next place is truly special. It’s far from a café or any other event space you’ve been to, so you can’t just walk in here whenever you want. This space was purchased in the 1960s by Tan Sri Kamarul Ariffin Mohamed Yassin’s family and serves as a weekend residence for them where they built art galleries and grew their own lush garden.

There are more than 7 structures on this plot of land, 3 of them being art galleries filled with intricate, priceless artefact collections (of which you can get a guided tour).

Other kampung houses here serve as homestay residences for guests and of course, Sentosa also hosts events such as workshops and buffet lunches.
