We arrived on a pleasant 30 minute boat journey from the mainland, but had I known what was in store, I would have got the ferry right back. We booked for 4 nights, but stayed just the one - and that says it all. The rooms weren't cleaned from the previous guests, with litter in the cupboard drawers, old towels... More

Two stars for fiendly and helpful service + nice secluded location, and proximity to Singapore. Missing stars for too expensive pricing, very basic breakfast (only cheap packaged juice, plain toast, egs and jam + fruits - everything else comes with a price tag e.g. second juice, baked beans, pancake...) Food in general was quite dissapointing taking into account that full... More

The location is great; the resort gives access to 2-3 beaches, very scenic ones. The only one restaurant has mostly buffet , lunch and dinner and 'a la carte' dishes are there too but one gets bored if one has to eat the same over 3-4 days. we were there for 3 nights. Often with so many coconut trees around,... More

We had a 3D /2N stay at the resort. The journey from Kuala Lumpur to Tg. Leman jetty took nearly 5 hours. We used the longer route of KL-Kulai-Kota Tinggi-Tg. Leman instead of the shorter route KL-Kluang-Jemaluang-Tg. Leman as advised by the resort operator and also from other sources. There's no other way other than to drive to Tg. Leman... More

Transport from SG-Tg Leman Jetty: Call up the resort and they will provide a mini van for you. It costs about 200RM for 2 persons (return), from Newton Hawker (Outram option no longer in place) and it takes about 2 hours to Tg Leman Jetty. There are breaks in between so don't forget to change your Ringgits. Do remember small... More

We got our welcoming drinks upon arrival and the staffs offer to help to transfer our luggage to the jetty upon our departure. The beaches are clean and the water is crystal clear. We went for flying fox, snorkeling and we also watched the sunset and the sunrise. Although it's just a 2 days trip, we did enjoy ourselves very... More
