We are family with 2 kids (9&11) and stayed in the treehouse. The facilities in the room were basic but clean and adequate with a/c keeping us cool at night. Mornings we were greeted with monkeys, otters and squirrels. There are 2 beaches to use at the resort, do note the resort is open to the public for a small fee, and we found on the weekends that the resort was taken over by many locals who broke the tranquility of the day. So we went out kayaking for 25 MYR per hour, and the seas were quite calm allowing us to discover the coastline at our leisure. The other activity we did was the Jungle Trail which is a 1.5-2hr trail where the highlight is the waterfall at the midway mark.
The city is about 40-50 mins away and cost us about 60MYR (remember to negotiate before getting into the cab). We recommend you visit the Top Spot Food Court for cheap and tasty seafood. For a family of 4 we spent about 120MYR for a dinner of prawns, crabs, satays, etc.....
We also took time to visit the Semmengoh Orangutan Park, and this is about 1.5hrs away from the resort, and note timings for the feedings is at 9am or 3pm. We found out the morning session provides the best opportunity to view the orangutans.
Lastly we recommend that you visit the Sunday market for some fresh tropical fruits and souvenirs.
