Was expecting to stay in the middle of a plantation (many trees surrounding, airy, shady ...) But this place is more like a Malay kampung (village) instead, with chalets scattered under the sun.
Staff helpful and friendly, which was good.
The chalet we stayed in, however, was run down and dirty. In dire need of repair, renovation and upgrade!
As the chalet was directly under the sun with no shade from any trees, it was HOT!
Info we got before going was they had Astro. As it turned out, it was only Astro Ria, Fox Sports (snowy reception) and some local channels.
Breakfast was inclusive, and it was GOOD. Nice nasi lemak in big portion, together with small-selection buffet (local kuih, bread, etc).
Suitable for people wanting to experience living in Malay village, and/or people looking for a lot of sunshine. Not suitable for people looking for cool place to crash.
