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

Quaint and beautiful lodge constructed mostly from Wood with a Malay country feel to it. Staff were very courteous, attentive and helpful. We enjoyed the beautiful and serene Beach, and the romantic sunsets during our stay. Nice place to enjoy a long beach run or walk. Sea was a bit rough mostly so swimmers must exercise caution. Rooms were fairly... More

We stayed at the Tempurung Lodge for six nights and had a wonderful time, enjoying the beautiful grounds, gorgeous empty beach, the clear, warm ocean's gentle waves, and the delicious meals. The young staff paid significant attention to details, decorating the dinner tables with an array of colored tablecloths with batik accents, fresh flowers and candles each night, and the... More

Pros: Beautiful location. Sleep to sounds of the ocean. Isolated. Nice staff. Canoes are there for you to use. Rooms are clean Showers work well. Cons: Totally don't understand why everyone's going on about the food being great. It's very average at best in terms of taste. The quantity was frugal. The quality wasn't that great - it felt like... More
