“Clean and Friendly resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were there for a 3D2N short trip. The place is clean and neat. The rooms are spacious (we got 2 x quad room) with 2 queen size bed. Basic amenities but that is all we need for a rural resort. The down side is the rental fees for the Karaoke, Barbeque pit, bicycle, etc are too expensive for a rural resort. Example, an adult bicycle rental fees is RM20 for a day. The owners are friendly and provided us with all information about the places to visit during our stay. They also allowed us to use their kitchen utensils without any charges...
We would go back to this resort again if we are visiting Sg Lembing again (did not see the rainbow due to cloudy day)

Room Tip: Get a bigger room as the difference is only RM10-20 per night

Book 2x triple room during holiday+weekday, a simple room & little overprice coz resort only provide shower cream, drinking water & free parking. TV, WIFI, etc... only provide at shared living hall. Resort provide a lot of activities during day/night.

Resort r easy to access most places in Sg. Lembing with a car (narrow road, about 1km away from Sg. Lembing town), 40km+ or 30min from Kuantan city. Around 1h drive (4WD only) to Rainbow waterfall parking area & about 2-3min drive to Panoramic Hill parking.

Noise due to leaking water tap & Karaoke. The chalet room only isolated with plywood.

Went to Sungai Lembing few times. This time bring along my 3 kids, total 9 of us have a good stay at this Resort. Friendly and informatic Boss. We have a good stay and nice sleep, have 2 swing under the tree for my kids to play. We went to the riverside play water splash at the side gate. Up the lantern to the sky at night.
Recommend -- for Big Group Travels, can gather together with your friends (cater more then 40 peoples), they do arrange transport to Rainbow Waterfall for you.
Good -- Quite environment and Good night sleep. Provided games & TV at main lobby.
-- Attached bathroom in each room
Thumbs-up -- Provides Mineral Water for you, free flow.

Not Recomend -- for back packers without transport, or travel alone or two or take a public transport to Lembing. The Resort is quite far from the Panorama Hill and Hawker center.

Refer to my another Review for a more convenience place for your night stay.

Room Tip: If you are in big group, pls book early for staying at the same block.

Spent 2 night in this resort in Feb 2013. Very close to attraction such as Rainbow Waterfall and Panorama Hills. Well kept and tidy plus good customer service.

The RiverResort is about 30 Mins from Kuantan Exit and the roads leading to it can be lonely at times especially at night.

The restaurant and BBQ facilities was not available as there were very few guest at that point of time. Spotted a spider in the room but its a countryside anyway so it didn't really matter.

The first time i went to sg.lembing is like 10 years ago, but this time
decided to spend a night stay at lembing river view resort which located
just as you enter the arch sign of lembing town.

Managing your way to the hidden resort requires your patience to drive
through those narrow ways. especially when crossing the brown wooden bridge to get across
the river which only one car able to pass through at a time. so you gotta be patient and "que up".

check-in was breeze as any transaction is handle through cash, no credit card payments.

rooms in resort were neat and tidy. even the floors tiles are cleaner than my house.
our booked rooms are quad rooms, with 2 queen sized bed. beds are just nice, bathrooms comes with
water heater, no TV in room, but with dressing table.

the TV is available at the shared living hall with sofa seats.

giant black ants commonly appear at living hall and some bugs/insect in room sometimes.

we came on first day of CNY, so majority restaurant and shops at lembing town were closed and dinner at resort
were unavailable too.

there are 2 swings on the tree and hammock for your pleasure.

surrounded by greenery,it's one of the place for you to enjoy nature with a decent and clean
stay at this place.

Majority people staying here is to prepare the next morning to hiking at panaroma hill.

Room Tip: stock up your food and dine elsewhere

Cleanliness was OKAY, my friend did find ants in her towel and there were mosquitoes and lizards all around but I guess it was acceptable given the rural setting of this place. Bathing was not a problem, there was a heater and the air conditioning was perfect. So we did have a rather comfortable stay there. I personally enjoyed the swing a lot, spent a few breezy afternoons on it.

Lembing Riverview Resort is pricier than most, if not all accommodation options in Lembing and though my experience there was relatively pleasant I would conclude that it is not worth the extra buck.

Although rather nice and friendly, the lady at the resort was rather calculative, and her spirit of hospitality did pale when compared to the other residents we met in Sungai Lembing.

There was an incident on the third day when she approached us at the washing machine and sort of warned us that washing incurs charges and assured us somewhat sarcastically that she has been watching us and taking note of our washing counts. This took me aback as firstly, she told us that we can use the facilities in the house (which we assumed washing machine), and that she only informed us about the charges after we have been washing for two days. Her tone was not very friendly as well and I did remember feeling slighted by it. The next day, while we were having breakfast we met our guide to rainbow falls (who is the best guide, definitely recommended), we told him about our washing fees and he expressed shock at how exorbitant it is. If I remember correctly it was RM6 per wash.

Also, to all who are intending to stay at Lembing, please do not go for the BBQ dinners. It is expensive, the food is horribly unworthy of the money. Also, the lady told us it was a buffet style BBQ but what happened was they cooked a bunch of food, left them on the table, and then all left. So it was definitely not 'buffet' or free flow and what we expected was a long night of eating and chilling was cut short, and the guys had to stuff themselves with noodles to feel satiated. Furthermore, the food served was lacking in variety. There were a lot of noodles, corn and sweet potatoes, and a few plates of actual meat. I paid around 28Rm and only ate noodles, one chicken wing, some sausages, a few pieces of mutton, and a few shreds of sting ray. The sting ray was really pathetically lacking in meat, and the mutton was full of tendons.. Ok my main point is the BBQ was a huge let down to us. We had 16 people, so with this disappointing stanard of "BBQ Buffet" you can imagine the amount of revenue generated.

After communicating with the welcoming and friendly residents in Lembing, we have come to realize, judging by their reactions after telling them our place of lodging, that Lembing Riverview Resort is not the wisest choice of accommodation. It is considered to be expensive my the locals and I don't think that they are very well integrated with the small but tight-knit Lembing community.

Those aside, we were grateful for facilities like the volleyball court, table tennis tables and mahjong set, which we rented for our entire stay there. That was a rather useful perk as we had a large group of 16 and these help to feed our boredom in the afternoons and late at night.
