Very nice lanscape, near to small hill and small bay. Very calm and relaxing place for couples or families. Kids enjoying their pool and calm shore for bathing and sand castle's play. Family room is spacious and ideal for barbecue in front of room.

The place is good for privacy and has scenic views. The nasi lemak, lontong and nasi dagang were delicious. For mosquitoes ,they provided electric insecticides. For flies, they use special candles. But the resort needs good maintenance. The sea water is a bit murky/muddy.

We were there around Chinese New Year which partly explains the price. Most rooms are back from the beach & face their pool. For one on the beach we paid MYR400 - for which I expected well decent, maintained rooms in keeping with their resort aspirations. What we got was an old jerry-built shack. I'd be OK if they were...

Only a few minutes drive from Mersing is the Fishing Bay Resort. While the rooms need renovating, they were clean and the bed comfy. Big refrigerator in the room, too. The bathrooms were clean, but needed to be redone. I was in a superior room--it wasn't recently renovated as I heard some were. The food was good at dinner, but... More

Crappy place in a fantastisch surrounding. I can understand that in a primarily muslim country there is no beer, but no soft drinks whatsoever. A very unfriendly staff and a totally run down place too far from Mersing. If you consider going here, bring your own food and drinks. Maybe, just maybe you'll enjoy one night. And that's only because... More

I stayed in this 'resort' as the pictures looked promising and they entertained online bookings. First up, you should note that this resort is about 15 mins drive from Mersing town. There is no public transport available. Secondly, while the resort is located at a beach (Air Papan), the waters are far from clear and can best be described as... More

I went there over the weekend and we were the only guests for that day/night! Their staff were friendly. The room needs some 'makeover' as the bathroom door has a gap due to falling pieces of wood and there were some cracks on the wall. Other than that the place is ok and relaxing for us as we enjoy nature.... More
