I have never seen a reception like the one at Lake Kenyir Resort - stunning! Wonderful taxi shuttle service and the employees are very friendly in a Malaysian way. The resort itself is in desperate need of maintenance and it is a real shame that it is not being cared for. Great value for money though and the view alone... More

The saying goes...location location location....however for a hotel, location is only 1 of a number of attributes to fulfil for you to enjoy your stay....and Lake Kenyir Resort fails at every level apart from location. The view...breathtaking, but everything else left us breathless in trying to comprehend how spectacularly Hicom / Glenmarie group can mess up having such a great... More

We stayed 2 nights here. Arrived after long drive and what stunning view from hotel reception. Sadly the swimming pool was green, the food and service was very poor, to the extent that we all refused to eat at Hotel after 1st night. The rooms are spacious and clean but in need of upgrading. We headed out to a small... More

Resort with a great view of the lake. The reception and restaurant building is impressive but in need of maintenance and so is the pool area. Loose tiles which someone tried to fix with some screws but now only the rusty screws are left. There was a pool bar but it was out of order and by the looks of... More

We wanted to check out Kenyir lake but there werent much choices in terms of accomodation to choose from, so this is probably the best out there. The place is huge with lush greenery and one have to call for buggy service to go places. We love the fact that its quiet, relaxing with its wonderful surroundings, even the air... More

We stayed one night here on our way to the Perenthians from Tioman. It was a delight. We arrived late in the evening so we could not see what was around us. And our eyes in the morning first light were amazed ! Our chalet was facing the lake, in the middle of nature. The hotel reception is a piece... More

We got like one building for ourselves, facing the lake with a balcony. Room was spacious and so was the toilet Need to call for buggy to get around; can be very late especially during busy check-in and check-out time. Food way okay. Pool was nice with good view of the lake (could be the best part about this resort).... More

I came here in 2010 and was disappointed with the faulty aircond, how dirty and dusty the room was but my recent May trip (for triathlon) change a LITTLE bit of my perspective. Crowd - i prefer to come during peak season (for triathlon/company family day) as the place can be quite spooky at night. Otherwise, get a room near... More

Started off as a charm but as years goes by, this place has lots its charm. Lack of overall maintenace, and other amenities makes this place as boring as its surroundings. Safety is especially lacking at the lake area where one can wander off and not return without anyone knowing. Mosquitoes and bugs are a plenty!

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...
