“Over priced and run down.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2008

The broucher says "Traditional style Maylaisan Kampong bungalows with 5 star interiors" . The property has a variety of fruits and animals that you can see via your own private golf buggy.

1. You have to find its location, which is not an easy task.
2. The 5 star interiors are ok once you dodge the blanket of mosquitoes and rat droppings.
3. For dinner I had the choice of 3 seafood dishes and one vegatable. Umm not a great choice if you dont like seafood or have children with you.
4. The golf buggy's battery died on the second day while we where out looking at the orchards. We had to push it all the way back to reception.
5. The animal enclosures where very run down and even included a couple of dogs that looked like they hadnt eaten for a while.

Now I dont mind roughing it at all, but when you pay 5 star accomoodation rates you expect a much accomodation and meals.

On the positive. The bathroom was nice. The kids had fun.

General rating - Very Disappointing!!.

We formed an impression that this was a place, a retreat that was very exclusive and suitable for senior executives and hence was priced at the very high end of resort stay prices in Malaysia.

The impression given by their website and other promotional literature makes it out to be a 5 star resort. But this is totally misleading.

Count your woes if you believe this place is a resort and is a Tropical Fruit paradise as claimed:

1. The so called restaurant was not more than a small town cafe equivalent. Food quality, quantity and variety that is included in the resort stay package is poor.

2. Thier free fruit sampling dish was in fact a small dinner plate with a few pieces of local fruit. Their welcoming drink was a real joke. It was lime water with a big dose of sugar.!!! This is from a place that claims to be a fruit orchard and where we notice there are thousands of tropical fruits rotting on the ground and hundreds of good ripe coconuts on the tress etc,

3. We entered our first villa and found the following:

- locks on the front door not working
- locks on the bedroom to bathroom door not working
- locks on the bedroom to living room fitted inside out i.e you can lock it only from the living room instead of the bedroom.
- Two packets of coffee present but no teaspoon and no kettle to boil water

After lodging a complaint with staff, they shifted us to another villa. We found the following:

- Mosquito bites over our faces the next morning despite having all doors/windows shut and aircon running.
- Phone in unit not working.

4. When we entered the villa the first time upon checking in we found a fruit basket in the room. We were happy to see " fresh" fruits in the room and was about to pick one of the rambutans to eat when suddenly realised these were all plastic fruits. They claim to be a fruit orchard but put out a basket of plastic fruits for their guests in the villa rooms.

5. The paths leading up to the villas are overgrown with grass and lack maintenance.

6. A few of the so called " attractions" in the so called " resort" were closed or very lacking in maintenance. Others were very disappointing and failed to elicit any interest or appreciation.

7. The children's playground and reptile enclosure area next to the restaurant were an abject disappointment. The swimming pools were empty, the bird/reptile enclosure had a few miserable looking creatures in them and that was it.


Summary

We were very disappointed with the low quality of the product ..

The property was opened with a great concept in mind but regetably and very unfortunately has experienced failure in implementation and deliverance of service and product quality.


The place is best visited as a day visit only and day visit tickets are sold.


The villas themselves are well designed, comfortable and a great concept but in the wrong location. The staff are to be complemented for being ever obliging, polite and trying to do their utmost for their guests.
