WELCOME TO SARANG PALOH HERITAGE STAY & EVENT HALL
A home away from home to rest and rejuvenate. Bask in the long history of the building we are housed in and discover the rich culture of Ipoh Old Town, all within walking distance of our humble abode.
Sarang Paloh is a heritage stay and event hall housed in the iconic OVERSEA BUILDING and YICK WOH Building, Ipoh. We take pride in being the result of a heritage restoration project in the heart of Ipoh Old Town.
Our name is a tribute to the history of Ipoh. "Sarang" is the word for nest in Bahasa Malaysia – a symbol for a place of rest. Ipoh was fondly remembered as "Paloh" – a token to the dams that were constructed along the Kinta River for fishing purposes.
Come and experience its glorious history dating back the 1930, timber flooring and beautiful high celing by spending a few nights at our nests or by holding an event at our beautiful hall.
