Awesome stay at the water chalet over the weekend. Nice and peaceful overlooking the lake. A good 1-2 days. Unexpected superb service from the hotel and facility staff especially Hafiz and Sham. The Fire Show on Saturday evening was suprisingly entertaining and deserves a bigger crowd. Keep up the good work - I will be back.

We stayed 1 night at Air Kampung at the Bukit Merah Laketown. Important when you leave your car remember everything - its a very long walk if you have forgotten something. You will get a ride to and from the hotelroom. The room was ok, but the aircon could not get it cold only in the main bedroom. Toilet was... More

I stayed at laketown hotel and I have to say the hotel looks quite old. It will be perfect if properly maintained by having new air-cond and the oldies smell of an old unit is removed. Its really good for stay if U plan to do activities in the resort as its walking-distance. No room service for foods. Only at... More

But the more time u spent inside the room, u will notice 1) the cabinet housing the fridge is rotting 2) fridge is... More

We went to the Eco Park on our way to Penang. It was a disgrace to the Malaysians. The whole park was old and rotting. Animals are caged in a badly maintained environment. Here and there you can see damaged pathways with rusty cages. Even the wooden door to each entrance of the zoo was rotting. This place definately need... More

I staying at one of the water village units (Kampung Air), the most expensive hotel at the resort. Advertised as 5 stars, it was clearly showing its age and was in no way a 5-star property at this time, or possibly in the last 15 years. Everything from the furniture to the furnishings were tired looking. The bathroom included what... More

The only one restaurant in the resort Le Lac Restaurant has great buffet lunch, too bad that they did not serve buffet dinner. Room in Laketown Hotel is so far so good, bathtub a bit stained but the hot water pressure is just nice. Room comes with complimentary teabag and coffee pack, mineral bottled water and a needle/streads pack, convenient... More
