I spent a lot of time just relaxing over the balcony, dozing off to the incessant chirping of the birds. The resort, retains a rustic charm, with its wooden cottages spread out along the lake, one can easily be fooled into thinking this is a birds' paradise. It is the first time I am in a resort with so much... More

This resort is certainly well past its prime. As mentioned by previous visitors, it is run-downed, and is sorely in need of a good refurbishment and perhaps, a re-branding. None of the facilities are fully functional. The air-conditioner was working overtime trying to keep the room 'lukewarm'. The advertised Day-Trips and Tours were a disappointment. Even the fish were as... More

We reach at the resort around 8.30pm , so when we arrive we have to wait 15mins of the buggy service from the car park waiting area! Check-in was smooth, but no information given about the resort, asked for deposit then given the room key straight away to the room, pretty sad such a name HERITAGE RESORT should be more... More

Only Malaysians can destroy this kind of opportunity for tourist business. The place is not maintained at all and rooms/chalets have a bad mould issue. And.... No alcohol served there, is a Muslim place.

This must have been a first class resort 25 years ago. Today it looks like a team of young scoots found the resort abandonned last month and decided to reopen it without any sort of renovation.

Though out of the way and difficult to reach except by Taxi, This resort is magnificent and is set in the heart of the rain forest overlooking the lake. Units need updating but the view from the lake front units makes you want to spend the day in your private balcony overlooking the lake.

The lake was beautiful, Customer service was wonderful. However the room is terrible - the air-conditioning was loud and got louder in the night. Sounds like the fan is blowing up at one point. I had to switch off the a/c unit. The toilet was damp and moldly at certain places. Did not use the wardrobe, instead kept my clothes... More
