“Countryside Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This resort is about 30km outside Kuantan city, tucked away in the countryside called Sungai Lembing (Lembing River). After getting to the Sungai Lembing town, one would continue to drive pass a cemetery hill and a few old rustic village houses before reaching the resort. At the resort, there are rooms located at the main building and a few chalets where each chalet has 4 individual room en-suite shower room. We stayed at the chalet room. Room was decent and basic for sleep. Nothing fancy. Water cooler machine is conveniently placed outside the room.Room at main building is bigger. There's no TV in the room. TV can be found at common area at the main building. The hotel has free wi-fi. The room is not sound proof. In a still night, you could hear lizard noise, wind from the spinning fan, and next door neighbor snoring. The resort is near the mountain/hill and next to the river. It is very scenic in the morning where you could see clouds enveloping the mountain/hill top. You can get plenty of fresh air, peace and quiet here, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The resort is not near the town, walking to the town may be a bit of a distant, estimated 15-20 minutes. We had own transport hence did not try walking to the town. Overall the resort is pretty well maintained, I can't fault this place. It's plan and simple. An ideal place for retreat to the countryside.

Room Tip: It's not near the town, hence stock up food for your trip. Get insect repellent.

the karaoke was going-on until 2.30am!!!

otherwise, the resort was strategically located by the river. Families with young children can enjoy water-play by the river bank when the river is low.

Rooms for family with 2 kids is rather small and tight but ample parking space.

roads to resort are narrow.

A nice little resort. We booked 6 rooms for the 12 of us for 2 nights. Rooms were very basic but very clean. I believe this is the best resort in Sg. Lembing!

Mr. Hoh the owner was very informative and gave a us a good summary (with photos to show) of the places of interest; namely the Rainbow Waterfall, Panorama Hill, etc. He also has the initiative to provide us with photostat copies of the map for Sg. Lembing & Kuantan. He even gave recommendations of restaurants in Kuantan. Kuantan is about an hour drive away and it will be a good idea to have dinner there as there is only 1 restaurant at Sg. Lembing. The food court opens from as early as 5.30am till about 2pm.

You can also try out the resort BBQ for dinner which we did on the 2nd night. The chicken wings & lamb was very well marinated. It was delicious but the portion was limited.

For us, the Rainbow Waterfall was a trip worthwhile. About an hour drive on 4 wheel and another hour of trekking to the falls was exciting.We had the waterfall all to ourselves as we were there on a weekday (Monday). Avoid going over the weekends or during public holidays as the place will be swarming with people. The RM40 includes a Maggi mee hot cup and a cup of coffee/milo. Do take along some snacks as you will be hungry after the trek. And please, please remember not to leave your rubbish behind. Take them out with you. Thanking you in advance for keeping the place clean and have a pleasant time there.

This is a comfortable place and ideal base if you are coming to Sg Lembing for the Sg Lembing Hill and rainbow waterfall tramping. Since Sg Lembing town is relatively small, the resort is close to everything (food & shops) even though it is not located on the main street.

The room is spacious, basic furnishing, air-conditioned, ensuite bathroom, tidy and clean.

Mr Yap, the caretaker of the resort is a very kind and nice person. Due to bad traffic condition, we arrived at the resort at 3 a.m. in the morning and he patiently waited. The host, Mr Hoh, is a friendly person too. This resort is an excellent venue for family outing and will choose to stay here during our next visit.

Set by the Lembing River, this pretty place is an ideal location for a rural respite. Rooms are light, clean and simple. The owners are very helpful. Lembing village is a 20 minute walk away and it is possible to buy hawker style food. Walking the local roads is relaxing. The village is quiet and architecturally interesting with a well preserved shop front area and fine colonial style buildings left over from the tin mine period. The museum is wells worth visiting. A highly recommended destination.

We stayed 3 wondeful nights. Mrs Hoh was a great host. She was ably assisted by her friendly Indonesian helpers,Yati and Ashraq in running the place. We stayed in the main block which has 12 rooms-very clean and comfortable. We were the only occupants as we were there mid-week. The meals were simple, tasty home-cooked fare.
To get a feel for the place, we cycled around the village, crossing the river on the suspension bridges.The most lively place in town was the market and food court. Most of the patrons were pensioners.I had coffee and chatted with an ex-miner who had worked in the underground tin mine in the 1960s and 1970s. It was interesting to hear his mining tales working with British engineers. Cricket would be played during the weekends. The football pitch in the middle of town is in excellent condition.
For those who like the fresh air,tranquility and friendliness of a small town, do visit Sungai Lembing!
