Sekeping Tengirri is straight out one of the coolest places you could stay in when you are in Kuala Lumpur. It is a large home turned guesthouse/boutique hotel with just 7 rooms, guaranteeing a certain amount of exclusivity.  The building is designed by Seksan, a famous local landscape architect.

The highlight of Tenggiri is its gorgeous, green design concept. Only the bare essentials are used in the construction of this building. As much as possible, re-purposed and recycled building materials were used in its construction. As rustic as it may seem at first glance, this chic guesthouse/boutique hotel comes with all the creature comforts such as air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, televisions, DVD players and even a swimming pool.
