We (YTSS) stayed at the camp site during our BC week and I must say it's quite okay. Toilets have no working showerheads so we had to bathe with pails and buckets that were quite sandy. Dogs kept infiltrating our camps and they swam in the pond where we did our rafting. What I liked about the camp is the... More

Went over to the resort during Dec with the family. We had 2 rooms there. The location of the resort is far from town. It about 15 mins by car. The road are not lighted thus driving at night need to have some care. The resort is close to the Kota tinnggi waterfall, just 5 mins by car, so it... More

We had booked this place largely because it seemed an attractive getaway from Singapore. Given that no one seems to have written a detailed review of this place, i will take the liberty... More

Previously I would stay at Kota Tinggi waterfall itself but this time a friend organized. I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very nice and very well maintained, something usually close to impossible in a tropical rainforest. There were no mouldy smell in the room. This place was our base to do a few treks from. The security is very... More

It was indeed a Back-To-Nature experience as the brochure of the resort had claimed. For city dwellers like us, we were awestruck by the serenity and tranquillity of the hill ranges, the rainforest and simply the quiet feel of the surroundings. Highly recommended for folks who just want a quiet retreat or getaway from city living. The morning mist and... More

Well I was here for a school program together with 40 children. This place is filled with big trees and nice mountains and etc. Well the personalized attention and service from the management was good. Also the security was really good and they actually don't allow people to just come in as and when they like. Only guest are allowed.... More

Paul, the proprietor, is probably the most optimistic person we have ever met, negativity just bounces off this delightful man. The accommodation is basic but functional and comfortable. The meals plentiful and fresh but maybe too Malay for some western palettes! The activities are varied and aimed at eco tourists as well as those who just enjoy the outdoors in... More
