“3 days of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2011

In september 2011 my wife and I stayed at Tiger Rock for 3 days. Let me just say that we never felt more welcome in any place in our life. The service is impeccable. Mohan and the Tiger Rock team make you feel at home right from the start. The food is local, fresh en deliciously prepared by chef Bavanni.
Last but not least; the location of Tiger Rock. A hidden gem surrounded by jungle. Comparable to nothing I have ever seen. It really is something you have to see and experience for yourself. And that will be my advice to you.

Mohan is a wonderful host : nothing is too much trouble. An excellent spot with very good food for a quiet getaway.

We absolutely enjoyed every second of our trip. The location and the royal hospitality of Mohan and his crew are inexplicable. The design and interior in all locations was thoroughly charming. You can feel that this place was built up with heart and soul and is now maintained with deepest passion. Take your time and inhale the place - it is a secret diamond.

We stayed at Tiger Rock after friends recommended it and were not disappointed. The manager Mohan is a total gem and knows exactly how to look after his guests. His wife Bavanni does all the cooking and it really is delicious. We like our food and not only was it probably the best food we had on our 5 week trip but some of the best food we have ever had. We were made to feel welcome and relaxed from the moment we arrived and were very sad to leave after 3 nights. You will see from the website how it is set up, it really is in the jungle! Our 2 children, age 7 & 13, had such a great time and experienced many new things, Wild Boar roaming around near the pool area in search of coconuts was wonderful.
If you are looking for somewhere to really relax, to be looked after by the most wonderful people, eat delicious food and have some quality family time this is the place to do it.
Make sure you try Bavanni's peanut butter cookies too - yum!
Also if you are planning to visit Penang look up China Tiger, www.chinatiger.info which is owned by the same family.

We will definitely be going back to Tiger Rock but next time it will be for longer.

Room Tip: All rooms are wonderful

Tiger Rock is one of the most special places I have ever been in my life! I felt like I was in paradise! Tiger Rock is magic!
The staff is also amazing! Mohan is one of the most loving persons I have ever met and his wife Bavanni is such a lovely lady who makes the most delicious meals every day! My dream is to go back there again!

Everything about Tiger Rock is absolutely amazing. Mohan and his staff are the nicest and most caring people I have ever met in a Hotel. They make you feel at home. We only stayed for 2 nights and we we're so sad to leave. If we hadn't booked every hotel in our entire stay in Malaysia beforehand we would have definitely prolonged our stay. We were with a family of 4, my parents, my sister (20y) and myself (22y). For adults is great, but for children there are a ton of things to do as well.

The cooking of Bavanni is exceptional. We have been to Malaysia for 2,5 weeks and ate in quite a few restaurants, but NOTHING came close to Bavanni's beautiful homemade meals. Every dish looked like a little picture. And the taste makes the whole thing even better. After the first meal you can't wait to have lunch or diner again! This does bring me to my only negative point in my review; if you have been to tiger rock and after that do some more traveling, all of the other dishes you will eat won't be as good. We kept saying: not as good as Bavanni's!

Mohan took us on a tour of the island, which was a total surprise. It was great to see the fishing boats, and the whole process of how dried fish is made on the island. We also went to a chinese temple, were Mohan explained everything about the traditions, and we did a ceremony ourselves!! We had been to a 100 of these chinese temples and never really understood what the people were doing, but now we finally understand!! Than we went to an indian temple where we got another ceremony, and more explaining of the believe. It was great to see that we were fully excepted in the sacred temples.

The rooms in Tiger Rock are all different. We only saw two of them, but both had a different style and decor. It is clean, and everything has been taken care of. The infinity pool is beautiful, and also really clean which, for me (and probably a lot more people), is REALLY important. There are also nice chairs at the poolside and towels, so you actually don't have to bring your own. You will get totally spoiled, as we got served freshly made lemon juice, while just reading and lying next to the pool.

I have never been to a place where I have felt more relaxed and at home than Tiger Rock, outside of my own house. It is amazing. There is a fast internet connection available, if you want to stay on facebook (like me haha) or do anything else of course. The only thing left to say is that 2 days is definitely to short! Stay longer, or if you're not totally sure, don't book your next hotel so you can decide when you're there that you want to stay longer. Believe me, you will!

We were a small group of 6 - 2 families with a kid each. Tiger Rock was an idyllic retreat for the couples & a unique summer vacation for the 2 city kids used to living in concrete highrises. We highly recommend Tiger Rock to like-minded adventurous parents eager to introduce some back to nature, jungle living. We occupied the rambling, wooden Malay-style Main House and the lovely Studio, with a backdrop of lush tropical jungle sprawl and music rendered by birds, insects & monkey calls!
Not to worry though, Tiger Rock has the necessary modern comforts – fans, air-conditioning and effective mosquito control (repellants are handy while being outdoors, especially in the evenings).
The kids had fun playing with Mohan’s dogs. There is a tennis court and we enjoyed a friendly doubles with the Dutch guests. The island tour is a must – the kids gained insights into the locals’ livelihood, lifestyles & religious beliefs.
Open air dining by the infinity pool was the perfect setting to relax & enjoy our daily meals. Bavanni is a fabulous cook – she turned fresh local ingredients into hearty meals. Mohan & his team were the perfect hosts – attentive, proactive, warm, efficient and always with a smile. We were so enchanted by our jungle home & after 3 nights, didn't feel like leaving!

Room Tip: Couples on a romantic getaway would love the Studio!
