Lake Kenyir Resort and Spa
Proudly displaying the title of ‘Home of the Hornbill’ due to the vibrantly beaked birds that frequent the lake shores, this resort offers luxury garden as well as lake view villas. Lake Kenyir Resort also provides an outdoor terrace dining experience featuring both local and western cuisine. Guided jungle treks, lake tours and recreational activities (including corporate team building facilities) are offered, as well as swimming pool access for the visitor who favours relaxation rather than exploration. Guest reviews emphasise the spacious rooms, friendly staff, and exquisite natural scenery (monkeys and squirrels can often be seen from the verandas playing in the trees.) However, past guests have also noted that several of the billiard facilities are quite run-down, and that the furniture in the rooms is a tad musty. All in all though, Lake Kenyir resort and spa remains the most popular choice of accommodations for holidaymakers eager to make the most of their time at Lake Kenyir.
Petang Island Resort
Perfect for the eco-tourist, Petang Island Resort offers single and double storey wooden bungalows as well as campsites for those who wish to get more in touch with the island’s wild-side. The canoeing, fishing, abseiling, treasure-hunting and flying fox activities on offer make it an ideal choice for the adrenaline junky. Student and holiday packages can be arranged.
Musang Kenyir Resort
Idyllically situated only 50 minutes away from the Sungai Gawi Jetty, Musang Kenyir Resort has a rustic, ‘kampung’ charm that is sure to delight. Musang Kenyir Resort provides 6 Twin-Triple Land Chalets, 8 Quad Land Chalets and 8 floating chalets for those who truly can’t get enough of the Lake experience. Musang Kenyir offers boating and fishing facilities, in addition to guided nature treks around the Lake.
