WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING & PREPARE FOR

Safety and Valuables:

No one in the village is legally allowed to barricade the river as part of their property. As such, because the river is right next to us, it becomes an open pathway for the villagers (especially the village children) as the river is open to all. That being said, this is a security matter that we cannot avoid, and it is dependent on the guests’ initiatives to safeguard their belongings. This means locking the doors when you leave out to go for a drive, or to not leave your laptop unattended out in the open. Basic safety precaution can mean the difference, and once something is stolen, it will be impossible to get it back basically. There is also a native aboriginal village nearby and they are also known to cross through the various lands and premises. Just like the wild animals, do not provoke or act untowardly to them, and they will leave you alone. However, as we cannot vouch for every single native, we advise that you always safeguard your valuables if there is anyone suspicious or unknown to you that loiter around the area.

The Weather, the River, and ASTRO:

Heavy rain does occur on occasion, resulting in rapidly rising water levels in the river. In cases of extreme rain or when the river turns a muddy color, do not swim as it is extremely dangerous due to the fast and potentially fatal undercurrents.

In addition, heavy rain also affects the ASTRO satellite dish, so you may not be able to watch any ASTRO channels when there is heavy rain.

Cooking & BBQ:

Cooking and barbecue are strictly not allowed in the property's compound. You may bring your own home prepared cooked food and enjoy them anytime in the comfort of your own room at the Resort or at the riverside during day time. We appreciate for you to keep clean of all areas and to make use the bins provided to dispose any garbage.

If there is a need to have a gathering, a covered space or a hall can be rented with a minimum spending fee. The minimum spending fee can be applied for the catering of Group Meal Buffets or Team Building outdoor activities with a minimum of 30 persons & above. Kindly contact our sales team for booking.

For the comfort of other guests, no food is allowed at the Pool Deck Area.

Wild Animals and Creepy Crawlies:

Wild animals such as dogs, cats, and sometimes even iguanas or big jungle lizards cross through the premise. Again, this is normal as it is a village! However, the animals will not attack unless provoked, so if you come across any stray animals, do not attempt to pet or approach it suddenly, and instead calmly try to create distance between you and the animals. They will normally walk away as they do not attack humans under normal conditions.

Cobwebs (not a bug), dead bugs, mosquitoes and other bugs in general are a normal everyday occurrence in the village! If you can’t stand them, please bring insect repellent and bug spray (especially during rainy / monsoon seasons such as during end of the year).
