Since this is my 1st time to The Shorea, I am amazed by the detailed information given by the staff. Upon arrival, there are friendly staffs greeting you and guiding you. Great retreat if you want to get away from the hectic work life and just chillax in the calm environment. Facilities are well equipped as well.

1st time ever to a forest retreat like this, it has surprised me with its well maintained pool and room. We enjoyed a good chat at night in the open sky and gorgeous pool view. The in room dining service isn't bad, though one may choose to cook on their own. There is no other place to walk around, so... More

It's a very nice place for retreat or family get together. The place give you the senses of calmness the minute you walk into it. I like the feeling of waking up in the morning with the Twitter of birds and the fresh air surrounded by mountains.The children enjoy The Shorea Estead very much too.

This place is an accident waiting to happen and I strongly advise anyone with kids not to stay there: 1) To the right of the Raffleasia section of the infinity pool, there is a section of decking about 20ft long, that has no railing, the drop is approximately 25ft onto old building materials including two vertical spikes. The poolside decking... More

Perfect getaway if you're looking for a change in scenery. My boyfriend and I were very satisfied with our overnight stay at the Begonia Villa last weekend. The view from our room overlooks the forest and it was very serene and refreshing. The bedroom is a little small so it encourages you to enjoy the outdoors- which was exactly what... More

First of all, I have to say the retreat is beautiful. The views from the retreat are amazing, especially from Cassia Pool Suite, which has a full, unblocked view of 2 infinity pools overlooking the vast, rolling mountains. However, the place comes with severe, crippling flaws, which leads me to give the place only 3/5 stars. The biggest downside of... More
