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

Love the clean beach. The place is quiet and cosy. Good for a quiet getaway. No airconditioning in the room and common area, but very cooling. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is good. It's a place I will definitely go back for a getaway!

Got lost on the way getting here. Need more signboards leading to this place, after the roundabout to Kuala Penyu town. In spite of that, the view of the lodge and beach are amazing. Perfect for those who need to escape from the busy city life and just get rest. Love the facilities provided - WiFi services, library, free flow... More
