The Story

The owner, Janice, have always wanted to do something with the few square meters of the land that she purchased back in her college years by saving her few months’ school allowance to own that piece of land.

The birth of Bara Villagestay originated from her last year’s visit to her village. Being away from her hometown to seek for a greener pasture overseas since year 2006, she and her siblings make it a point to visit their parents and re-unite with their relatives and old friends back home. The idea of building a traditional nipa hut on stilts which will serve as the first accommodation for guests visiting Bara was born.
