Just above average”
Been there for family holiday. hotel room was cozy and clean. located 2-3km from janda baik. surrounding environment was nice and secluded from noisy town. during my stay i found that the resort vicinity was not maintain properly especially the pool, water look hazy. dont bother to call resort number because i tried plenty of time without any respond. just message the phone number provided in the web for any enquiry.
Nov 2017 review ”
To be honest, after reading the reviews from internet, i hesitated to book. But this hotel was the best located for the purpose of my stay ( actionasia event malaysia 50 race) Then i decided to give it a try. Booking was smooth. I received a pdf file with all the resort's policies. no surprises regarding late checkin or anything else. Check in was smooth. eventhough the staff got very limited english skills, he was very nice, and wanted to be sure everything was clear. The room was very clean. of course, it's not the most modern compared to KL center but I feel it's still ok for such a remote location. Room got TV, fan. my room did not get AC but no surprise: i knew it. Toilet and shower were really clean. with some soap / shampoo provided. Check out was smooth. i could stay a little longer than 12 as i came back late from the race to take a shower. Overall staff was very friendly, organizing taxi back to KL for me.

Great location but need to improve facilities. ”
The place have great location in Janda Baik. Serene and tranquil within driving distance from KL. The swimming pool uses natural water from nearby streams which is extremely refreshing. However, the place have seen its better days.

The rooms are very small, but romantic. Equipped with the quality wooden traditionally carved furniture. Nice and clean bathroom with the bath tub and hot water. Quality and clean towels. The staff is invisible, you feel as if there is nobody around but you. The balcony is on the ground level and faces the beautiful tropical garden with the fish pond. The pool is pretty big, and 7 feet deep. A hundred meters of walk, and you'll find yourself by the cold jungle river with a series of tiny waterfalls. TV is bad and without satellite programs, so don't go there to watch TV. The place is perfect for the wild couples who love their privacy and comfort.
nice area, amazing service”
hi, i enjoyed my stay in that hotel. it was my 1st visit in janda baik,, and i think this hotel is 1 of the best in that area, u know why? because the service is nice, ppl there are frendlyy and the assets of the hotel well maintained.. in fact i got a very nice deal with agoda 4 that hotel.. and i enjoy swimming in the hotel swimming pool.. add that the weather there like a cameron highland or genting,, you just go and try it then u know what iam talking about
Beautiful place, also relaxed and cool ”
This is my first time holiday at widow good to look and feel natural beauty and serenity are in the forest, a very interesting experience for a quiet and calm from the busy city and can calm the mind and stress from work. a very cold night with a sound of crickets feels like being at hometown page, for those who do not have a village, can expect to find there own beauty, greenery and serenity are at hometown, the resort also has a river clean, clear water and beautiful surroundings . noise of rushing water is very calm and cool hearts and minds. also have pool with very cool water because their using natural water from groundwater without chlorine. Overall I am very satisfied with this resort and nice holiday at good widow
Sorrounded by natures...”
Family with 3 young kids. A resort in a green garden full of variety of flowers. Large room with 2 double beds. It is not lake view but only pond view. A lot of fishes in the pond. All rooms have a balcony above the pond. Bathroom old designed and need to replace the water heater and to repair all the wirings. The swimming pool filled with natural water from a river nearby. If you are not so adventures, you will be scared of the quiteness and the garden sorrounding the resort.
Lovely place with nice view”
The stay at the resort was extremely good. We were the only guest staying at the resort despite all of the good comments/remarks. Quite shock about that. There's garden with the river and small lakes near to our room. My kids were so excited when then can easily see the fishes from our balcony. The best part of being the only guest staying there was that we have the luxury to fully utilize the pool! The bad part of it is that is quite hard to get foods. The nearest small restaurant will be around 5 km from the resort. It will be really scary especially during the night.
Seri Pengantin Resort is an intimate hideaway where you will indulge and rejuvenate your soul in cooling mountain atmosphere.

What you see(pics) is not what you will really get”
It is different from the pictures that we see. There are too many ferns/plants unkempt/untrimmed that we brushed (and hi-5) to almost all the plants/ferns that lined the passage way to our room. The swimming pool was deep, 7-8ft on one end and 5-6ft on the other. There was a baby pool as well. The water was green in colour. The staff was nice and polite but obviously understaffed. Most probably because of the holidays season. One thing that was weird and inconvenient was, they locked the gates to the resort from around 1 to 3 pm so that they could do housekeeping. We were coming back from lunch at around 2pm so we were told to come back later. Since we were returning from Janda Baik village, we decided to take a look at the rest stop at Perhentian Genting and Janda Baik. So far so good until we returned to the hotel thinking that they would have finished with our rooms as we were locked out before that. Well they did not. The room was not made up. They came much later in the evening to do it. If they had informed us earlier about the lock up, maybe we could have managed our time better. And since they didn't they should have come up with a better reason than that.
very good surrounding,quiet,and cold, but before reach the resort make sure buy some food stock because at the resort lack of food and quite expensive if you buy at the reception.
Very rare adventureous resort”
I feel so relax and comfortable. Nice and inviting caretakers. Helpfull and kind assistance. Only problem was limited parking spot. It's very quiet and privacy. Not suitable for those rich kiasu that expecting 5 star treatment with 3 star price tag.
Friendly Staff but far and eerie on the way there.”
Its actually an 'OK' place, the receptionist was quite friendly, otherwise i'll give even lower grades for this resort. This place is quite deep inside, and when driving into this resort at night is quite scary. They said the check in time is 3pm but we had to wait for quite awhile only we can check in due to the slow room cleaning process. The room we stayed is garden view, an ok-ish place, bathroom was quite dim. There is no air-cond control, but if guest are lazy to call for help from the staff, there's an on off button on that aircon. Overall its an okay place to stay, but just rmb to bring food as there is no food and the nearby cafe is quite far unless you drive. Had our breakfast at Kopi something(forgot the name), nasi lemak served quite nice, but environment a little hot and many mosquitoes.
Feel back to nature”
This is my second time visited to this resort. Everything was okay, all good. Breakfast was too much (worth it). You can feel serenity and really can relaxed. River just nearby, pool using natural water. Also that the time to switch off all our gadjet because no internet coverage at this area. Even if yes, the connection was too weak.
i went with my two nieces. There was an old water heater in the room but the water that came out wasnt hot nor warm. The person-in-charge of the resort informed us that the water source of Janda Baik is very cold hence the heater is capable enough to heat up the water that rapidly. besides that, there was no air-cond remote controller for us as the staff claimed that it is the resort's policy to prevent children (guests) from throwing the remote control into the lake in front of the room. There was nothing much for the children to play and the usability of the swimming pool is subjective. There was not internet service, not even TELEPHONE service in the resort. If you do not mind all stated above, it might be a good place for you.
Nice Location but with a bad servicing ”
When i arrive at the resort to check in, the person incharge as a receptionist were too slow, even what time check in also they said not sure, suddenly said ohh i just remembered check in at 3pm. Even she don't know how to communicate in english, keep calling the supervisor , passing her hand-phone ,to communicate with us because she don't know how and what to tell us. It doesn't matter if don't have any lobby but make sure the person in charge is educated and at least can communicate in english and make sure the resort have a basic facility such as telephone in every room and wifi. Actually, it was a peaceful n nice places. But it was so annoying when a foreigner group stay there , make noise around 12.30 a.m, dancing like a hell such as clubbing n laughing without cares about others. We made a complaint but no solution at all, they still with their bad attitude. Huhh its a good place to stay with nice environment but it will make the resort much better if they provide a good facility and a good servicing.
The resort has unique surrounding of nature with beautiful fish pond. Staff are friendly and helpful”
Smoking prohibition in the room is commendable, but total ban of smoking within the compound of the resort is quite unrealistic.
Peaceful boring highly not recommended this hotel”
Our trip was boring staying here with unfriendly staff. Not helpful at all. We stay in the hotel but we have to get out and figure by ourself what to do what activities can we do. Luckily we met a guy who was guided us to restaurant, waterfall, jungle trekking and the best coffee shop in Janda Baik. Owner of the hotel is too arrogant i guess. We were smiling at him but him just buat muka bodo. Haha at least smile back lol because 2,3 times we smile at him but no smiling back . I dont like this hotel. Thats it
Very quiet surroundings”
Comfortable for just one night stay. The surroundings is very quiet and it is best to just stay indoors at night as it is very dark outside. The TV is rather old. Maybe the management can improve the amenities and provide more up to date equipment. We requested for an early breakfast as we wanted to start exploring Janda Baik early but the hotel management could not accommodate. The staff at the reception during the check in did not know how to speak Bahasa Malaysia.
