From a quiet island hideaway with a touch of Malay architecture to nostalgic, traditional kampung houses, check out these seven beautiful Airbnb Stays across Malaysia that will make this a Raya to remember.

Seaside Sanctuaries

Picture waking up in a beautiful traditional wooden home on the first day of Raya, surrounded by stunning gardens, the ocean breeze and a private pool as you settle in to feast and celebrate with your loved ones. If that sounds like the ‘Aidil’ holiday, Alamanda Markisa Villa or Sunset Valley – Farmers House, both located in Langkawi, promise to be the perfect place for your family gathering.

Reunion-friendly Retreats 

Thinking up fun ways to spend your family gatherings? Rumah Lenggong in Perak and Rimba Alor Orchard Villa in Malacca offer plenty of options to make this long-awaited reunion all the more memorable. Roam the grounds and bring the entire family fruit-picking, or relax together in the outdoor pavilion while reminiscing the good ol’ days.

Evergreen Escapes

For those looking for a more laid back holiday, check out this Cameron Highland-based kampung home, or perhaps this modern villa or a hidden rainforest retreat in Janda Baik where fresh air and gorgeous views abound. Enjoy a grand Raya spread surrounded by modern comforts and classic decor, while basking in your very own natural paradise.
