Hotel situated outside of Ipoh, approx. 7 miles. Impossible to visit town without a car or taxi but the hotel is a great place to relax and unwind. The 3 towers that make up the complex appear odd, given the hotels position, but the view at the back of the hotel is breathtaking!
Our room was a suite, with a largish lounge. Everything was spotless and well maintained. Staff everywhere pleasant and helpful.
Breakfast had a massive array of foods - heavily oriental - with plenty of choice, including an egg station ( although the poached eggs were like rubber one morning) Evening meals and poolside snacks were both well priced and good quality.
The infinity swimming pool is massive and the view from it is stunning! We saw many birds, butterflies etc. flying across from the adjoining lake. A pathway around the lake took in part of the surrounding jungle, with monkeys, squirrels etc.. Our highlight was spotting a crocodile and an otter - from the poolside!
Overall, we found the ambience here very relaxing. less

Dear Gordon C
Your review was frank and objective, and we thank you sincerely.
Most of us have not spotted the otters yet, and you must be among the few blessed enough to do so.
By the way, we have no crocodile in our lake. There are several monitor lizards though, and you must have spotted the largest one, which is almost 2 metres in length. We have recorded them on video and the videos are on our Facebook Page. We even have a video of a smallish one climbing a tree.
Hummingbirds and crimson sunbirds abound, and many varieties of butterflies and moths, too. Nature is preserved here in her pristine state.
Please come again for another relaxing time.
