My church group of 23 had a lovely weekend stay at this 16 year old resort. We were placed in triple or quad sharing rooms. However, most of the time we were in the big and airy dining hall. We had a good welcome tea of spring rolls and curry puffs. Hot water/ Coffee/Tea was available at mealtimes. The compound... More

It was unplanned trip to Kota Tinggi. As usual the most unplanned is the most amazing trip. After enjoying the amazing day at Kota Tinggi waterfalls at evening we moved to Kota Tinggi Rainforest resort. We walked back on highway without knowing the whereabouts of the resort. After 3km walk we reached the resort. It was a kinda silent pace... More

We (YTSS) stayed at the camp site during our BC week and I must say it's quite okay. Toilets have no working showerheads so we had to bathe with pails and buckets that were quite sandy. Dogs kept infiltrating our camps and they swam in the pond where we did our rafting. What I liked about the camp is the... More

Previously I would stay at Kota Tinggi waterfall itself but this time a friend organized. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very nice and very well maintained, something usually close to impossible in a tropical rainforest. There were no mouldy smell in the room.

It was indeed a Back-To-Nature experience as the brochure of the resort had claimed. For city dwellers like us, we were awestruck by the serenity and tranquillity of the hill ranges, the rainforest and simply the quiet feel of the surroundings. Highly recommended for folks who just want a quiet retreat or getaway from city living. The morning mist and... More

“My friends and i occupied about 5 rooms thereabouts. I don't think there were any rooms that i would consider "good."”
  • The shower and the WC together: once you shower, everywhere gets wet
  • The toilet
  • The room - basic, spartan, and dusty with a perpetual feeling of dirtiness
  • Lizard droppings and dirt by the room door
