Been here back to back once in a month since Jan till May 2014 last year. And I was here again early this year. Really can't get enough of this place. If you need some privacy, this is the best place to go. It was perfect for me because this place is so beautiful, private and just 2 hours away... More

It is hard not to develop a grudging affection for this Grand Old Girl. Like a favourite elderly Aunt she has quirks that will drive you mad but in the end the atmosphere and serenity that prevails smooths most of those over. In her day she would have been a premier destination. She’s built into a hill, with the former... More

We spent 6 days in the Lodge. It is situated near the Kuala Penyu town in the small village named Tempurung. It is really located in the middle of nowhere with poor GSM coverage and almost unusable wifi connection. This can be perceived as a negative but for us it was a balm for the workstress-tired nerves. :) The food... More

My friend and I stayed here mainly because their website shows so many activities and trips to do. When we got there, we asked for the activity book and found that only two were actually available, Palau Tiga (Survivor island) and Klias River Cruise (run by the same company). Brilliant. The weather was terible so we couldn't spend a lot... More

Stayed 2 nights at the king sized lodge. Basic unit wit fan. Room is quite cooling with the breeze from the beach. Bathroom has water heater. Water pressure is ok but water can't be heated up much eventhough the temperature knob is turned to max. But it's acceptable for us. During our stay, WIFI is not available. Mobile Phone line...

I absolutely fell in love with this place for many reasons. After passing through the area, we even backtracked a little so we could stay here for another night. The staff here are incredible. We did a little excursion and arranged it with the lodge one day. After a bit of a mix up, we were not where we were... More
