“A place for resting and do nothing...”
Reviewed 10 June 2013

We are travelled in group of 4. After existed the Sungkai toll, drive a few kms and reached the "entrance" of the resort. Then, drive for another 11km through jungle of palm oil tree, felda/malay village and some more palm oil tree, you will reached to the main gate of the resort. That is what you will get in the resort, palm oil tree with a hot spring water theme park. Usually the room comes with a free entrance to the hot spring. There are spring water big pool and hot water big pool with several smaller pools and different temperatures of the hot spring water for everyone. Ofcourse, the boilling of egg in the theme park.

As for the hotel, dont expect a high standard of facilties, cleaness and services here. For me, I think is more like 2 1/2 star hotel. The room was rusty and weird smell from the carpet (them need a good dry clean on the carpet) and the bathroom was not clean or i said dirty and like hostel standard. For breakfast that is included, normal malaysian breakfast with nasi lemak, fried mee etc. A night stay in the hotel is more that enough unless you are coming here for some quiet time alone, writing or study for an exam....

Room Tip: well, i think a night stay in the hotel is ok.

Not far from kl, suitable for a short break. Nice & quiet environment. Love the hot spring and theme park. Can go any time you wish during the stay...just a short walk from the hotel. The water is so refreshing, original from the nature. Suitable for all ages...definitely a win-win situation!
However the room is a bit dated...and the cleanliness need to be improved.

We arrived approximately at 1pm and assuming that we can have an early check in. But the room was not available as we need to wait a group of people that came there for their team building to check out. The check out time supposed to be at 12pm, but almost 2pm the group still not check out and leisurely had their lunch without bothering other people/family that still waiting for the room. We have baby and children in our group and it was extremely a hot day. I think the management should be strict or else people will spread out the unwanted news about their services... We only can check in after 3pm, after waiting for housekeeping clean up the room...

The room was spacious (and I booked 4 rooms and they gave us connected room-we can access all 4 rooms) and ok. But the funniest part not ended here, we rushed to the hotspring at 6pm after we have been informed that they will close the place at 7pm!!! Imagine how can we bath in hot spring during the daytime, afternoon some more!!! They supposed to open the place at least until 10pm as mostly people will go to hotspring for bath, skin dipping etc during night time... But they can close some section after 7pm...

I will go here again in April but not expecting much for them to improve the services, and definitely I will go and check in after 3pm... P/S: the fountain pool and breakfast was awesome...

We went on the fifth day of CNY and it not too crowded. Book 2 villa #14 and 15 as there 18 of us. Fast and friendly check in, Both villa very spacious, clean but the water in the jacuzzi not hot.The pool and the hot spring are excellent place for the children to enjoy and explore. The breakfast at the cafe is just average. Overall will come again as we like the environment, nice , clean and refreshing.

The last visit we used the big public pool which is free but lacked facility like after bath and toilet, and in a hurry to get into pool, I accidentally stumblled over some rocks and got a fracture toes, this time we made just daily trip and we decided to use the private jacuzzi for a fee of 75 dollars per hour. This came with private room with bathing facility and privacy, quite an enjoyable time though it is a bit costly. Some tips for day visitor : the parking is quite far from the inside, it is advisable to bring along umbrella ( which I forgot) both for sun and rain, public holidays is quite crowded unlike working day ,the tram is also working, but we did not have time...however, it is a pity the only snack we had is ice cream, why can't they have a cafeteria and snacks around for the hungry visitors?

We went during the Thaipusam break, thus it was considered as superpeak season for this property. We stayed at the 3 rooms villa ( villa 17 ). There were good and bad points of this resort.
Negative points:
1. This villa was supposed to come with a private hot water jacuzzi, however the hot water was only available from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm. The rest of the time the water was freezing cold. We chosed the rm 1100 villa hoping that we can have a nice dip in the hot water jacuzzi in privacy. We really felt cheated as this was not mentioned in the website. They advertised as exclusive villa with private hot water jacuzzi.
2. The power sockets in the kitchenette were disfunctional.
3. The kitchen utensils were dirty.
4. Water heater in room no 2 was not functioning.
5. The mountain spring pool only starts operation at 11 am. This is really an advantage for residence as the check out time is as 12 noon, thus the children only have less than 1 hour to play in the pool.
Good points:
1. Reception staff were fast and courteous.
2. Maintenance respond were prompt for our complaints.
3. The overall ambience of the resort was excellent, nestled amongst the oil palm plantation with nice hot springs and pool.
4. Egg boiling in the hot water spring is a novel experience.
5. The therapeutic garden is good with multiple small hot water pools of different degree of water temperature and a therapeutic pebble stone path immersed in hot water.

This resort is suitable for people who love nature and who come for the purpose of experiencing the therapeutic properties of the hot water spring.
Would I come again?
Definitely for the the above reason. However the management should improve the maintainence of the so called exclusive villa. The private hot water jacuzzi should be available for longer duration - timing should be specified properly in the website so as the patrons don't fill cheated. The mountain spring pool should be opened earlier - my suggestion is at 9 am.
Hope the managment takes note as this property is a gem and should not be wasted.

We stayed in a deluxe room, ground floor. Room spacious. Nice view of the green grass with palm trees. The building blends in with nature. I like the bamboo plants by the entrance. Staff helpful. We enjoyed swimming in the wide natural hot spring pool a great theraphy for tired muscles. We also enjoyed the egg boiling activity. The eggs taste good once it is boiled. There's also a reflexology trail in a hot spring, which is a unique experience to try. The smaller hot pools anyway are not properly kept, looked dirty maybe because of the sulfhate. I brave myself to go in so that I had the taste of dipping in a hotter water. The water temperature is great. My daughter anyway does not like the hot pools. The next day we make a point to go to the cool mountain spring. It has children slides and looked like other water park but of a smaller scale. The kids seemed to enjoy themselves. I would like to return but it is quiet far from the highway, nearest town and that makes me think twice before making another visit.
