Nice blend of building materials and eco-aware architectural style. Service staff are sincere and enthusiastic. Food is better than it looks. You stay here to either (1) access the Royal Belum Rainforest and its activities, (2) fish on Lake Temenggor, or (3) get away from it all. Few / limited other amenities and entertainment infrastructure in the area.

If you needed somewhere NICE to stop for relax after a long drive, here's a place that you should try.

The resort is very nice. I like the way it sits on a hill slope overseeing the Temenggor Lake, which btw is a made for hydro-electric generation. The landscape & decor matches very well. Its very clean as well. Rooms are huge with interesting bathroom layout (for me anyway). If you're planning to go here, please call first and reserve... More

The resort is for the nature lover. No tv in the room. Nothing much to do except for jungle trekking, rafting, etc. Suitable for short visit. Food quality is quite bad, swimming pool is too small and too crowded.
