Our marquee brands are Rucksack Inn and The Rucksack, which today includes properties and experiences across Southeast Asia.
Sibling to Rucksack Inn, The Rucksack is a curated line of properties and experiences aimed at the Generation Now crowd who seek authentic local experiences and adventures. Featuring artisanal, eclectic environs, The Rucksack comprises lively, joyful activity which guests can indulge in and gain new knowledge of the heritage of a place, while sharing Instagram-able moments with the world.
Our flagship The Rucksack Caratel, in Melaka, Malaysia, features a blend of modern suites and distinctive caravan-style accommodations in one of the country’s inimitably unique towns. As a historical town well known for its plethora of food options and centuries old cultural legacy, Melaka continues to offer adventures to those who seek it. The Rucksack Caratel facilitates adventure by inviting guests to reimagine the town with fresh eyes and elevate their own experience by finding joy and happiness in the overlooked little things we sometimes take for granted.
Likewise, The Rucksack Rainforest Kayaking experience – located in Kuching, Sarawak, East Malaysia, takes guests on a journey of rediscovery.
Typically known as the main gateway for travelers visiting Sarawak and Borneo, there is much more to Kuching than food – even if Kuching has recently been recognized as the country’s first UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN) in the field of gastronomy, State Tourism, Arts and Culture – as the jumping off point for adventures in the wilderness. And this is what The Rucksack Rainforest Kayaking provides. Nestled in the rainforests of the state, offering a hidden world of adventure, wildlife and history of the place, providing a genuine reconnection with the places that feed our sense of adventure and keep us connected to places and spaces that soothe our souls.
