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

We booked a month in advance and were told that their rooms were sold out. We managed to get a 'go green' room which had no tv (and a poor view of the lake). When we checked in, there were four friends who had no prior reservations. They got a better room with a good view. You have to travel... More

They are quick to come when you call them. The chalet was ok. I dont think their is done any maintainance since... More

Considering that Lake Kenyir is the largest man-made lake in Malaysia it seems a bit odd that this is the only resort near the lake. It's a bit past it's prime, but the location on the banks of the lake, the large property, the relative quiet, the friendly staff and the scenery make up for it. Worth spending a weekend.... More

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
