Been here for one night, booked two deluxe rooms located on the same building with the reception. First thing on my mind when I saw the building, old and creepy. Our rooms on the third floor and we need to use the lift which I'm not sure the safety. When we enter the room, it has some kind of smell.... More

We stayed there for one night, Nothing out of the ordinary, The toilet kept dripping all night even after the maintenance person sort of fixed it. A/C was a little noisy, Wifi was a disappointment, One and last trip for us at this place.

It has been quite sometime since I last stayed in this resort. On 27th December 2015 I booked two superior rooms for my family of four. The rate was reasonable since it was during the school holidays. When we reached the resort. there was no parking designated for the disable. Being a disabled person, it was quite a task to... More

This place is unique in how dissapointing it is, we stayed in Kampung Air and there was this white powder that will drizzle on you as you sleep from the plaster ceiling. And when you wake up, you feel like its christmas with a carpet of white plaster ceiling powder all over the room. As for the waterpark attractions, it... More

The place was not hard to find since it is just so near after exiting the Bukit Merah highway. This was my second time coming as my first was few yearsss ago, but only went to the waterpark. This time around we only planned to stay and relax. Coming towards the main walkway, it felt nostalgic but with something missing.... More

We went to this resort last week, wish we hadn't bothered. Totally run down and a complete waste of money. The water park looks so old and half the attractions in there weren't working , you pay more renting the tubes and lockers than you do to get in the park ! The eco park too is run down and... More

I went here yesterday and I must say I was terribly disappointed with the management and condition of this so called resort. There were hardly that many people here. The only hotel here was dingy, damp n very badly maintained. I do not even want to start with the toilets there!!! The eateries there are very limited to certain types... More

We stayed at the Chalets. Super spot on the lake but last decorated 2001? Claims to be a 5 Star - joke - only amenity was a 2 Star cafe. Shampoo and shower gel do not a 5 Star make. Almost none of the resort (?) attractions were open. As always, the Malay staff were super and the place was... More

We had a company family day planned some time before Chinese New Year. There were a total of about 30 of us, all with families of varying ages. We found the resort fairly clean but our first impression is that it is run down, and severely neglected by the managing company. It became obvious to us that the company managing... More
