“Unforgettable Company Trip”
Reviewed 24 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

I have been to the Kota Tinggi Glamping site which was managed by the same owner. But i honestly did not expect the condition of the Janda Baik camping site to be this bad. 14 of us attended the company annual trip and this time is to Janda Baik camping site for 3D2N.

I have already pre-empt my boss and colleague that this is going to be a camping trip and they were prepared for it. BUT thing just do not go the way it should be. It was raining since the day we arrived and it just add on to the string of unfortunate event for our team.

1) Walking to the tent is a challenge with water and mud sticking to our slippers and dirtying our feet. (my colleague had to put a bucket of water outside his tent so that he could wash his feet before entering the tent)
2) 4 majong tiles missing thus we cannot play majong
3) Carrom board warped and pieces missing.
4) Mattresses in one of the tent were wet.
5) Not enough blanket for campers (blanket provided should be longer and thicker in view of the weather at Janda Baik being cooler and moist)
6) Three small monitor lizard found in one of the tent which disturb my colleague so much that they had to ask the owner to get the lizard out of their tent.
7) Breakfast - scrabble egg were too salty, no jam/margarine to go with bread.
8) There is water heater in the showering area but it is not heating up the water.

After a night staying at Kanopi Villa, my boss made a decision to check everyone out of the campsite and we stay somewhere else on the 2nd night.

What an exciting trip !!! I can only say that act of god plays a part in spoiling our trip but the property owner ought to do more in the maintenance of this camp site.

Thank you for your review.
Unfortunately, the weather condition was rainy resulting in muddy ground. The mahjong tiles was lost by the previous guests which we were unaware. We will do more vigilant checking of our gaming equipment.
The weather is cool at the highlands so water tend to be cooler when the water heater is used, adjusting the water pressure might do the trick.
Sometime we get poor weather condition but these are all the fun of camping.

“Camping Trip”
Reviewed 12 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Cons:
1. The tent looks scary and under maintenance and require to be wash down the canvas in and outside.not a very good impression for first timer.
2. Should place simple road sign to the place. Although can use waze direction.
3.The entrance of the place not very welcoming with any signboard.
4. The rate is quite pricey and should charge per tent than per head.
5. Matress is too fluffy and decent matress is require .
6. Dog presence might unease some visitor but good to have for safe guarding.



Pros:
1.Great for outdoor activities cycling , hiking and river swimming ( kids)
2.Great indoor activities area ( goat shed ) and a lot of section for kids and adult to spend during day ( because hot and sunny day not suitable to stay in the tent)
3. Complete facilities provided with nice bench , almost all cooking facilities and even good size of fridge .
4. Good for family day and bbq activities.
5. There is hot water !

Overall : Good experience if you like rare and comfortable camping outdoor activities.

We were happy to welcome Febe when her car arrived at our campsite. We waited about 10mins while they seems to be having a conference in the car. Later they stepped out of the car and seemed concerned that there are no other guests, which was a weekday. I assured her that we have 4 staff and a security guard, more staff than her party of 3 ladies. Still they did not feel safe as they did not like to be alone. They used the toilet and left. They did not visit the tents, ponds, garden, activity centre and dining area.
