We were there for the new year's long weekend and it was perfect! Service, food, decoration....everything. The resort exceeded my expectations and I will definitely be back soon.
RESORT: colonial house very beautifully decorated (with antique furniture) - spacious rooms, gym, spa, western/chinese restaurant and lobby/bar. Located in front of the golf, and 2 hours away from Ipoh airport (taxi will cost you 200myr). Close to the jungle/forest (walking distance), 20 min away with a taxi from BOH tea plantation (if no traffic). The hotel was very well decorated for the Christmas/New year holiday season.
FOOD: excellent a la carte Breakfast (pancake and waffles were excellent - see pictures), western lunch served at the bar/lobby (I tried the salad and pasta), nice afternoon tea (reasonably priced!), great steamboat at the Chinese restaurant for dinner (between 80-100 MYR per person including dessert).
SERVICE: awesome - staff was very friendly and helpful! Mr Gerard was particularly nice and patient, taking very well care of all the clients. For new year's eve, there was a live band and a countdown at the bar/lobby.The hotel organizes a (free) walk in the jungle for guests, with a guide (Mr Madi) who is very knowledgeable about the nature and local history.
