I stayed here recently for the triathlon. Needed a good night's sleep but instead was kept awake by the sound of a rat squeaking and IN my room. The place is beautiful or rather WAS, and i wish someone would take it over and maintain it properly. The air-conditioning barely works, and the electricity tripped constantly. Worst of all was...

We spent 2 nights here which thankfully we located the place by our trusted gps...as road signs are somewhat lacking. Rustic place with individual chalets facing the beautiful serene lake. Rooms are spacious n clean; bathroom is quite huge too but fittings are rather aged. We had simple dinner the first night (decent) n breakfast was mediocre....but thanks to influx... More

The man made lake seems very inviting when we both glance thru the images in internet. A peaceful place to be but boring. Not much sightseeing or place to look and see. We drove out to get some snacks and drink but there wasnt any no provision shop or restaurants. Seriously! The spacious room is a bonus but interior wise... More

This resort is badly managed, very dirty surroundings, main building is rotting away and many facilities are dilapidated. We ordered meals and food was ok but service is bad and slow. Served us food but did not provide cutlery, we have to get it ourselves...

Lake Kenyir Resort is secluded and scenic place. Stayed here on Oct 21. Wanted to spend 2 nights, but due to a large group function, it was sold out 22/10. Ironically, the place was an empty on th 21st. It is one the gateways to Taman Negara (National Park). It is not a natural occurring lake, but it's breathtaking. I... More

If you're going to visit Lake Kenyir be prepared for nice nature including all wildlife but nothing else. The Resort is old, the restaurant is basic especially when you like to have a glass of wine for dinner or even a beer the problem's started. Many lodges have a good view over the lake but renovation is needed. The SPA... More

This is a wannabe high-end resort which fails on the details. The look is tired and maintenance is poor; the place is isolated and there is no in-house kind of entertainment so that after a boat tour of the lake you are left with nothing else to do. It may work well if you are after isolation or if bring... More
