Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa Review
Especially suitable for family with kids, this is a lake front resort that provides access to the Taman Negara National Park, the oldest Malaysian rainforest with 340 surrounding islands, 12 waterfalls and two caves, giving home to a wide variety of exotic wildlife. Did I say its in the middle of the rainforest? Dont worry, It is just 60km from the Kuala Terengganu Airport.

Other than being mesmerized by nature’s beauty as you are surrounded by caves (not to 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 which will come with a little bit more adventure.
Spacious Bathroom at Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa
You can also find an array of indoor activities such as board games and pools should the weather turns 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 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 main reason why travelers are flocking there for a relaxing getaway trip.
The restaurant at the resort serves both local traditional and western food for its guests. There is also a choice of a pool side 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.
