Garden View Villa at Lake Kenyir Resort
Upon arriving at the resort, I knew right away that we’re gonna have a luxurious treat. Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa is a luxurious and modern resort situated on a privately owned island on the banks of Lake Kenyir, Malaysia’s largest artificial lake.
Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa Review
Especially suitable for families with kids, this is a lakefront resort that provides access to the Taman Negara National Park, the oldest Malaysian rainforest with 340 surrounding islands, 12 waterfalls, and two caves, giving a home to a wide variety of exotic wildlife. Did I say it’s in the middle of the rainforest? Don’t worry, It is just 60km from the Kuala Terengganu Airport.

In Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa, you will find everything you need to enjoy your time with your family or friends, including the park that lets you get away from the buzzing city life. This resort is the perfect option for a relaxing vacation.
Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa Lobby
Other than being mesmerized by nature’s beauty as you are surrounded by caves (not too far from the resort) and trees there, you can also spend your time on the fairways and greens that have been designed to have the lowest impact on the environment and still keep it challenging for golfers of all standards. Other activities also include fishing, picnic, bird watching, tennis, and squash. Cycling, jungle trekking, Elephant interaction, and jungle walking are some simple activities that will come with a little bit more adventure.
Spacious Bathroom at Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa
You can also find various indoor activities such as board games and pools should the weather turn bad. It is also the perfect location for travelers who enjoy scenic destinations and enjoy photo shooting. It is rare to be able to find a place that gathers such a scenic location, the thrill of the national park with the lakes and the caves, and the activities of the adjacent lake. This perfect combination is why travelers are flocking for a relaxing getaway trip.
The resort’s restaurant serves local traditional and western food for its guests. There is also a choice of a poolside café for a casual and relaxing dinner. Alternatively, you can also enjoy the real, local delights by visiting the cafes and restaurants in the city, where you will find cheap, traditional, and authentic dishes.

The chalets’ designs are inspired by traditional Malay architecture and they are well positioned to offer a panoramic view of the lake. All chalets are equipped with amenities such as air conditioning, Wi-fi, TV, minibar, and telephone for your convenience. Bathroom facilities include a hairdryer. It should be noted that no alcohol is served at the resort due to religious rules.
As the resort is fairly isolated to provide a tranquil experience, it is pretty inconvenient to get to except by taxis. Situated in the heart of the rainforest, you will be swept off your feet by this breathtaking view.
