My family of 4 headed to Shorea to get away from the hustle and bustle of KL, but unfortunately a part of the city came along in the form of 2 other large families. The peaceful times were between 11pm to 7am whereby we could finally hear the "forest". We figured that there is no point in informing Shorea cause it would be hard to control the noise level of such a large group. We further noted some day guests which we understood to be generally discouraged.
Apart from that we were relieved to have booked Kemboja and not Halia as it provided some privacy being the highest level of the resort but noise does travel upward :-)
The architecture and Kak Su and her team were the saving grace of our little gateway. They tried very hard to make our trip comfortable and enjoyable. We appreciated their little touches and warm hospitality.
However we decided to leave slightly earlier and return to KL since we never really left it behind :-).
It may be a good idea if future guests are reminded to keep the noise level down in consideration of other guests who are there for some peace and quiet.
