Terrapuri Heritage Village: Architecture of a Lost Kingdom

On the pristine coast of Terengganu, a new level of opulence is on the rise. Terrapuri Heritage Village is a secluded tropical hideaway dappled with 29 antique Terengganu Malay timbre houses. These architectural splendors were turned into luxe villas that seek to satisfy every guest’s whim.


Blissfully facing the South China Sea and fringed by a mangrove river (Setiu Wetland) on the other side, Terrapuri transports you to a world of tranquility and indulgence. Interestingly, Setiu Wetland serves as feeding and roosting ground for migratory birds as well as habitat of the endangered painted and river terrapins.

Our rustic chic wooden room is conducive for relaxing with all the amenities you expect to find in a posh resort, minus the TV since it’s meant for escaping the daily distractions of life (though I still wish they had Wi-Fi). I felt that phone in the room is also needed in case guests needs to ask something from the reception. A sign to guide guests around the resort will also help prevent them from getting lost in this extensive property.

Just outside the soul soothing resort is a gorgeous powdery white shoreline hugged by turquoise water which is perfect for swimming or lazing on the sun loungers while reading your favorite novel. During fishing season, you can also witness local villagers trawling for fish.
