The shorea seremban is a nice and quiet location quite close to the city and well apportioned. We were a group of 25 and even though we booked well in advance, almost six months in advance, they were understaffed and not able to cope with our group. The staff are polite and attentive but just couldn't cope. A lot of...

Wifi is slow, but good in a sense that it force us to spend more time for family bonding. Trek to waterfall was good! Need some level of leg strength to do it, but the waterfall was...

Had read reviews from others and yes, I was sceptical. But then, to each his own. So the best is to experience it yourself. Overall, we had a lovely stay at a beautiful villa. It was refreshing experience. Guess the faulty wifi did help abit on that. I have no complain on wifi issue. But maybe some would. The rooms...

Since this is my 1st time to The Shorea, I am amazed by the detailed information given by the staff. Upon arrival, there are friendly staffs greeting you and guiding you. Great retreat if you want to get away from the hectic work life and just chillax in the calm environment. Facilities are well equipped as well.

1st time ever to a forest retreat like this, it has surprised me with its well maintained pool and room. We enjoyed a good chat at night in the open sky and gorgeous pool view. The in room dining service isn't bad, though one may choose to cook on their own. There is no other place to walk around, so...

It's a very nice place for retreat or family get together. The place give you the senses of calmness the minute you walk into it. I like the feeling of waking up in the morning with the Twitter of birds and the fresh air surrounded by mountains.The children enjoy The Shorea Estead very much too.

The poolside decking...
