Where the good life flourishes


The Hilltop Recreational Villa or clubhouse offers a host of resort-style amenities.

WHEN seeking a luxury lifestyle, it can be tempting to look towards some of the planet’s most famous cities.

But Malaysia is actually second-to-none when it comes to world-class neighbourhoods – as seen with the eco-luxe hilltop enclave of Saujana Duta in Seremban 2, Negri Sembilan.

With a lofty perch some 400ft (122m) above sea level, homeowners here are spoiled with lavish comforts, panoramic vistas, smart convenience and uplifting surroundings every single day.

Combined with a warm sense of community, the visionary development by IJM Land elevates quality of life in every sense of the word.

It has also become one of the Greater Klang Valley’s most desirable addresses, evidenced by the slew of real estate industry accolades garnered over the years.

The latest is a World Gold in the Residential Low-Rise Category of the prestigious FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2024.

IJM Land Bhd CEO Datuk Wong Tuck Wai attributed the success to embracing visionary strategies in creating world-class properties.

“We’re truly humbled yet proud of this international recognition for Saujana Duta, which has truly lived up to its name as an ambassador of luxury living.

“The award underscores IJM Land’s commitment to excellence in luxury developments and will motivate us to continue introducing innovative and market-responsive products that create new value for the communities in and around the projects we embark on,” he shared.

Ahead of its time

The 3,800-acre Seremban 2 is IJM Land’s ongoing flagship project in Negri Sembilan and was started in 1995.

A self-contained township with residential, commercial, educational, retail and leisure components, it has emerged as one of the state’s most successful and progressive developments.

Over 62,000 residents now call it home, with the masterplan currently about 70% complete.

When Saujana Duta was launched in May 2013, it was not only the first luxury hilltop low-rise development in Seremban 2, but also all of Seremban.

Phase 1 was completed in May 2015 and comprised 116 semi-detached homes and 8 bungalows.

Phase 2 with 75 more bungalows came on the market in September 2014 and was completed exactly two years later. Built-ups of the stylish two and three-storey units ranged from 4,038sq ft to 7,060sq ft.

They were the homes many buyers dreamed of and market response was hugely positive.

“Saujana Duta is now regarded as the epitome of luxury living in Seremban, a development that was truly ahead of its time and peers.

“It was the culmination of Seremban 2’s best elements – a hilltop community for the discerning; elevated by smart technologies, lush landscapes and a signature clubhouse.

“This eco-luxe premise is further elevated by the plethora of urban amenities, parks and comprehensive infrastructure around it,” Wong pointed out.

Its distinctive appeal covers many facets:

– High profile, low density: The total of 199 units in 38 acres translates to a very low density of only five units per acre, making it one of the lowest density neighbourhoods in Seremban 2.

– Future ready: Premium finishings and fixtures aside, Saujana Duta homes are also known for their smart home technology and sustainable features. Every unit incorporates smart home ecosystems for automated control of lights, temperature and security. There are also green features such as solar power and rainwater harvesting systems. They are also internet-ready and were the first in the township to be equipped with optical fibre infrastructure which can be up to 20 times faster than regular cables.

– At one with nature: The surrounding 30-acre Hill Park affords residents ample avenues to be inspired and rejuvenated by nature. Facilities include viewing gazebos, a children’s playground, jogging track, adventure zone, picnic pavilion and kite- flying lawn. There is also a Dinosaur Park with over 700 trees, including those preserved from the original site or transplanted from elsewhere in Seremban 2. This green lung also keeps the area’s ambient temperature cooler and the air fresher.

– Safe and secure: The Hill Park is an extra layer of natural security, while the naturally elevated ground keeps the enclave innately private. Within it, there is 24/7 security and CCTV surveillance.

– Unmatched vistas: From its vantage point, Saujana Duta overlooks all of Seremban 2, with clear sightlines of the Seremban city skyline as well as the Titiwangsa Range’s hilly greens to the east.

– Distinctive forms: To maximise the scenic views from each home, Saujana Duta’s units are arranged in a series of platforms ascending the incline. These terraces are intersected by tree-lined avenues to create an iconic cascading profile.

– All-inclusive community: Perched dramatically on the hill’s edge is Saujana Duta’s clubhouse, The Hilltop Recreational Villa. A convenient 10-minute walk from every home, this residents-only facility boasts resort-style facilities that include a 50m infinity pool, gym, 1.7km cycling and jogging track, resident’s lounge, function rooms, themed gardens and lookout points.

– Well-connected: Seremban 2 serves as a gateway to the Greater Klang Valley under the National Structure Plan and is strategically located just 4km from the Seremban toll plaza. Via the North-South Highway, or the ELITE and LEKAS highways, it is just a 45-minute drive to the Kuala Lumpur City Centre and Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Putrajaya and Cyberjaya are reachable within 30 minutes. Seremban 2’s main arterial road also affords residents direct and convenient access to the area’s commercial centres and amenities including Bandar Ainsdale and the old Seremban town roughly 9km away.

Hitting greater heights

The success of Saujana Duta has seen IJM Land launching ViO Banj’ran and Nova – in nearby Seremban 2 Heights – this year.

ViO Banj’ran, launched in January, sprawls over 13 acres of prime low-density real estate perched approximately 480ft (146m) above sea level.

It will have 40 units of two and three-storey hilltop bungalows sized between 4,756sq ft and 6,944sq ft, each designed as a contemporary masterpiece for multi-generational living and blends sophistication with functionality. Expect premium luxury living amenities, advanced security and other perks.

Notably, the RM183mil development has also attained provisional GreenRE gold rating in the residential category.

Nova, which comprises 73 double-storey semi-detached homes and bungalows, has just been unveiled. The semi-detached units are sized 3,370sq ft while the bungalows measure between 4,247sq ft and 4,463sq ft.

“These two new additions to our Luxury Series build on the success of Saujana Duta and will offer residents unparalleled lifestyle experiences with freehold tenure.

“In the luxury residential market, there are opportunities to curate compelling, refined and distinct products that reflect homebuyers’ exacting standards of modern living.

“ViO Banj’ran and Nova both exemplify our bold vision to redefine upscale living standards in Seremban. We’re confident that these two projects’ inherent qualities, distinctive characteristics, lifestyle-centric designs and differentiated concepts will make them similarly successful,” Wong added.

Seremban 2 Heights sprawls a further 1,500 acres alongside Seremban 2 and is equally well-located to give residents easy and convenient access to all essential amenities such as schools, business parks, shopping and entertainment centres, food and beverage outlets, financial institutions, healthcare facilities and more.

Together, both master-planned townships are set to be the driving force behind the rapid growth of the Greater Klang Valley for decades to come.

Wong summed it up by saying, “When building Seremban 2, our aim was always to develop a close knit community where families can grow and thrive.

“Having nurtured this township for almost 30 years now, we’re pleased to say it’s truly a place to call home. We’re proud of the positive impact achieved by Saujana Duta in raising benchmarks for the built environment, which has been an IJM ethos for the past, present and future.

“We’ll continue to be guided by our strong belief in creating sustainable communities and delivering quality products that meet the aspirations of homeowners and investors alike.”
