Environment of the lake kenyir was good. But the conditions of the resort need to give extra care. Taste of food its ok but not much choices from the menu. Room can consider not bad. Services from the resort staff was good and help us a lot during our stayed.

We were there for four days over Christmas in an executive villa. The location of the hotel is superb. It is quiet and the views are stunning. But unfortunately I won't be going back and I won't recommend it to friends. On day one we realised the room was pretty run down. The to was old crt TV with grainy... More

Amazing wooden villas with scenic view of the lake. We rode the buggies to get to the reception area and rooms and was greated by 4 wild hornbills flying from trees to trees. Nov-Dec-Jan is not a good time to visit, as it is the monsoon season and the areas are prone to flood and landslide. The best time would... More

1. I love the scenery... 2. There is an infinity pool overlooking Lake Kenyir.. 3. Hire a kayak...But make sure you know how to steer before going to the middle of the lake...There will be a lot of dead trees... So you need to avoid them... 4. 1 room can fit 3 person... There is a day bed in the... More

This is my second visit to the resort after my initial one back in 2009. During my first visit the rooms were newly refurbished and overall condition was quite satisfactory. Leap forward to the year 2015, everything got older and run down. In serious need of some refurbishment to the furniture and fixtures inside the room. The only consolation was... More

place is in dire need of upgrade. Very old and run down. I would suggest that people stay in Kuala Terengganu town and drive here for a day trip - approx.40 minutes. The lake boat ride is not cheap and if you want the longer duration ride - you would have to hire the entire boat if you do not... More

Room was big with good amenities, had to take buggy though food at the resort was average at best, though staff did their best to keep us well fed polite and cheerful, the staff were very nice its too secluded, and only if you like nature should you go stay here.
