Didn't stay at the hotel. It was a day trip with my wife and a friend. It was a naturally pretty place. I'm not sure whether it is considered properly maintained, but the surrounding is satisfactory to me. I'm a nature lover. The air is refreshing and cooling,even at 3pm. What I didn't like was the road going up and... More

The location of the resort is perfect for nature lovers. Located on a hill top with beautiful vistas all round. The only problem is the owner seems to left the resort to rot. For RM449 a night I definitely did not expect to see a Broken toilet seat or bedroom full of bugs.
