Meru Valley EcoVillage has been chosen as a finalist in the search for the Best Northern Development at the annual iProperty Development Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2018 organised by iProperty.com Malaysia. Running for the second year, IDEA raises the national spotlight on the property industry’s most accomplished.

Set 10 minutes outside of Ipoh city centre, Meru Valley EcoVillage is pitched as a true haven of wellbeing. Set in the heart of the thriving Meru Valley championship golf course, the development features a mix of 34 single-storey villas, 48 townhouses and 84 low-rise apartments, each with their own green credentials, access to healthcare, community spaces and extensive facilities.

All the homes have been designed in keeping with environment and making life easier. The sustainable-focused village features rainwater harvesting system that recycles rain for external use; high-level windows that allow natural sunlight and ventilation; and solar heater system that saves energy. Sunscreen louvres and deep roof eaves are used to block the sun.

Meru Valley EcoVillage is a mixed development that is focused on wellness and that many already call home. The village is built on a philosophy that a place should be designed for everyone with everything one needs to live well. There is access to a wide range of wellbeing and health facilities, a medical centre with GP, specialist gym, spa rooms, hairdresser, grocery store, dining venues and 27-hole golf course and two-tier driving range on your doorstep.

On top of this, Meru Valley EcoVilage has an excellent partnership with KPJ Ipoh Specialist Hospital. The multi-skilled Meru Valley EcoVillage team, including a doctor and home nursing team, works together with GPs, nurses, physiotherapists and family members.

Residents enjoy the relaxed and safe lifestyle, open spaces, convenience of amenities and they always comment on the friendliness of the staff and the supportive community.

The integrated approach ensures they have everything they need on their doorstep while being in the tranquil surroundings of the majestic valley. Meru Valley EcoVillage is slated to be the industry’s benchmark of an ecological, sustainable and liveable neighbourhood. There is still a selection of homes available, with show homes open daily from 10am to 6pm.

An independent panel of judges who are highly experienced in the disciplines of building and landscape architecture, engineering, valuation, law, topography and interior design will judge 13 categories. Winners will be revealed at a premier gala dinner on Thursday, November 15 at The Majestic Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.
