Best Retirement Villages in Kuala Lumpur 2020

If you are looking for the best retirement villages in KL (Kuala Lumpur), you've come to the right place. Yet again, Malaysia has been selected as one of the top 10 retirement destinations in the world, based on the Annual Global Retirement Index for the year 2020. Malaysian cities are clean and modern, its public transport unrivalled, and its people the friendliest in Asia. According to International Living, the cost of living is four times cheaper than it is in the U.S., and as an added bonus, Malaysia’s street food is hands down the best in Southeast Asia.

And while other Asian countries offer great budget holidays, and some offer first-class vacations, Malaysia manages to cater extraordinarily well to both. For those who wish to retire or spend extended periods here, the Malaysia My Second Home (MM2H) programme; launched in 2002 by the Malaysian government offers a renewable, ten-year, multiple entry visa for qualified applicants.

For the retirees, the next obvious question is where exactly should you stay? You'll need to understand the various ‘levels of care’ that you might require. Many so-called retirement homes do not cater for the various levels of care with the assumption that you are healthy and independent and will remain that way forever. When a higher level of care is required, you might need to leave the community if the retirement village does not support that level of care. An integrated retirement home should cater for the various levels of care and you should not need to leave the community unless there is a need for hospital care and more intensive care required.

We have compiled a list of retirement homes based on running various keywords on Google search engine, Google Search Results and information available on forums and blogs. The retirement homes have been arranged in no particular order.

3. SRI SERONOK RETIREMENT VILLAGE

In a two-acre piece of land in Cheras (Kuala Lumpur), about 30 single-storey houses cater to a special class of residents. These are elderly but independent people who despite their age, still value their independence in living in separate housing. Each of these 650-sq ft houses has a bedroom, kitchen and living/dining area allowing a great deal of freedom, privacy and space as compared to rooms in an elderly care home. Established in 1988, Sri Seronok Retirement Village, was conceived by former Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur, Soter Fernandez, as a retirement village for elderly single persons and couples to live in. The village offers comfortable and self-contained units in a pleasant and safe environment.

The units are rented to the residents and the rent pays for the upkeep of the village while the balance is used to repay the Archbishop for the original cost of construction. According to Mooney, the village only accepts residents who are able to live independently. “Residents are free to move around and go out to the shops and restaurants nearby,” the director adds. Seronok does not advertise and is recommended via word of mouth. The retirement village, which prides itself as being the first in the country with such a concept, currently has about 20 – 30 people in the waiting list.
