This is a place for nature lovers. If you like green, fresh air, away from the city, tranquillity...this is the place. Not many people come here and no private cars are allowed within the resort area. It is a hill & golf resort, about 10 years old. Food served are 'meatless', mainly organic vege, eggs and bean curd (locally known as tauhu), very tasty and nothing is bland. They do serve meatless simple local cuisines like fried rice, roti canai, tom yam and fried kueh teow, among others. Prices for food were not cheap (when compare to local food prices) and subjected to tax and service charge. But I think quite reasonable for a hill resort, taking into consideration the transportation cost to bring the ingredients. Resort staff at all levels were extremely helpful, friendly and cheerful. We were welcomed by bights smiles all the time!
We stayed at the Jungle Cabin (more like chalet on stilts), which was a distance away from the golf course, surrounded by nothing but greens, greens and greens. A very beautiful and peaceful place. The Cabin itself was reasonably clean but interiors were not as new as pictures from the website. Very fresh & cool air. The sound of nature was magnificent up at the resort area. It was a very pleasant stay as we've got what we wanted - a breakaway from the city, heavy traffic, heat (we come from the hot city of Kuala Lumpur)and crowd. We loved our stay simply because we were not looking for some posh, five stars resort type of vacation. We just wanted to relax in a quiet place close to nature.
Trekking to the Kalimantan Border is a must. Scenic view at the border worth the one hour of non-strenuous trekking.
