This is a very pretty place nested in the jungle. We are quite nature lovers so we were very excited at the idea of staying here. Indeed the sounds of the jungle were beautiful at night and in the morning and the place is very scenically situated. On the other hand we found the ecotourism side still a bit on the learning curve: the place is respectfully located in the nature but there was almost no information on the species surrounding it , on the wildlife , even when we asked about birds ,the reply was that the place was too lush to see them. For us , ecotourism is also about learning about the place so we found that strange.
On the other hand the manager was always happy to help and the food was delicious: we are vegetarians and that was probably the best food we had in Malaysia.
