I visited the resort with my partner and his parents so we could visit the national park. The rooms were well decorated, very comfortable, large and clean. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. There were 2 restaurants with one serving western food and the other serving the same menu along with some local dishes. We ate from the local...

This is a review of the resort only, not the excursions. With a significantly higher cost than any of our other stays in Malaysia, we had high expectations of this resort, but we're on the whole disappointed. The location is indeed excellent, and other than the nearby main road that we could only hear outside the room, was relatively quiet....

A great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Perak's untouched rainforest. The food at the resort is exceptional from both restaurants there. Everything that came out of their kitchen was delicious. I highly recommend the kerabu pasta, an ingenious fusion dish. Another great note is their staff, who are so friendly and accomodating at all times. This is...

We've been eyeing to visit this resort for quite a while, but never had the time for the 5+hour drive (from Kuala Lumpur) there, until the New Year's Eve of 2016. After the long drive, we were happy to find a beautiful resort perched on the hillside by Lake Temenggor. Check-in was quick, and we were taken to our room...

We were very impressed by the architecture of the resort. Overall well maintained, staff are friendly, and rooms are good sized and well laid out (we stayed in the cheapest room option with garden view, and even that had a day bed) We were on a room only stay, without the hiking tours etc.. but that was alright as it...

Hidden gem in perak, Malaysia. Lovely resort. Eco friendly. Excellent eco tourism holiday. The full day boat and trekking tour and the one hour round the island boat trip are highly recommended. Flora and fauna at its best.

Apparently there were only few accommodation choices and my trip advisor of my team of friends recommended staying here. I had a whale of a time staying here as it really is suitable for people who wants to isolate themselves from the busy city life. I would say the design of the resort is simply overwhelming.

Good nature retreat. Forest trekking interesting but certain parts can be very slippery and dangerous. Would be better if more safety precaution measures are installed. Hotel staffs friendly more facilities not well maintained, bikes, kayaks all spoilt. Walks not clearly stated, staffs not sure about directions. Could be better , it is a beautiful natural park.
