Stayed here for one night. Had to pay 240 rm and we have cockroaches in our room. Everything is old and stinks. Nothing is clean, not even the toilet. We were thinking of sleeping in the car, does that give an impression? I cannot think of anything positive of this place. Sorry.

Kampung Air chalet is cheaper if you book via internet. More spacious and suitable for fishing activities. You can do your fishing activities tru your balcony. .and the view is superb. ..spa is available..massage and body scrub is good...Kampung Air is the best...will be back here again :)
