The place is a bit rundown. But we fell in love with the beach instantly. Beach is clean and less crowded. Meal is acceptable. Should've inform us about water supply problem. I'm ok with the room (not air-cond). But not happy with the uninvited guests freely enter the lodge to take photos (louder than the guests). Overall, worth staying overnight...

Surprisingly less crowd during our visit with friends. During our visit, The place was complete with basic facilities e.g shower provided, breakfast, lunch and dinner of course! But the next day before breakfast, there's no water in the toilet. We had to ask one of the staff turn on the water pump. Well after 30min or so the water are...

Been here back to back once in a month since Jan till May 2014 last year. And I was here again early this year. Really can't get enough of this place. If you need some privacy, this is the best place to go. It was perfect for me because this place is so beautiful, private and just 2 hours away...

It is hard not to develop a grudging affection for this Grand Old Girl. Like a favourite elderly Aunt she has quirks that will drive you mad but in the end the atmosphere and serenity that prevails smooths most of those over. In her day she would have been a premier destination. She’s built into a hill, with the former...

We spent 6 days in the Lodge. It is situated near the Kuala Penyu town in the small village named Tempurung. It is really located in the middle of nowhere with poor GSM coverage and almost unusable wifi connection. This can be perceived as a negative but for us it was a balm for the workstress-tired nerves. :) The food...
