Away from busy city life..children spent time in the pool. We stayed there for 2 nights. 10 minutes drive to lost world of tambun. Very good security... More

I chose this place because I want to give my kids some different experiences from city life. In this sense, I would say the target was achieved. Basicly, the stay was within expectation. The room is clean, there is air-con in the room which makes the stay not too difficult. But there is no TV or wifi in the room... More

Very safe eco-resort as you need to ring the buzzer to drive in. Lady co-owner is friendly and check-in is complete within 5 min. We stayed in the three house with one King Size and 1 double decker bed and the kids are excited with it as it has a Jacuzzi on the balcony. We spend out time playing ping... More

its a great place to stay especially if you like the quiet place. There is a river beside, you may just sitting there doing nothing. When it comes to the fruit season, you may just enjoy plucking the fruits there. At the moment, its the flowering season. The attentive staff with sincere smile makes you feel so warm. The room...

It's surrounded by nature with nothing much to do except watching the day goes by slowly, which was exactly what we're looking for. We spent most of our time taking a dip in the swimming pool when the sun is out or warming ourselves nicely in the jacuzzi when it's raining. The buffet breakfast served was average but we didn't...

This eco-resort is actually quite nice and can be quite outstanding if the owners iron out few things. We stayed at the tree house deluxe and luckily we didn't get any of the 3 units of tree houses which are too close to the main road (maybe these 3 units are not 'deluxe'). Too many reviews before about the traffic... More

Resort suffers from a very serious mosquitoes infestation problem. The main cause is probably due to lack of waste water outlets in the shower area. The floor of the toilet/shower area is covered with pebbles. Without any water outlets, waste water from one's shower will stagnate on the floor of pebbles. Over time, these pools of stagnant water will become... More

One night is barely enough to describe our experience staying here. For one, getting here is easy with Waze. Just look up for The Roots and you're all set to go, located along the trunk road passing by Tanjung Rambutan and set against the breathtaking view of Mount Korbu, known as the second highest mountain in the peninsular. Don't worry... More

We have been looking to getaway for a couple of days from the city and finally decided on The Roots. A short 2 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur and the opportunity to sneak into Ipoh for the fabulous food made the choice easy to make. The facilities were basic but sufficient for us. I would not confuse the concept of... More
