Definition of A Great Holiday!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

A perfect place to get away from the hustle of city life. Just less than 3 hours journey from KL.

We stayed at Amani Villa. Really love the room and totally enjoyed the private pool. I had a splendid time at Mangala Resort with family. My kids really enjoyed the archery, canoe and the nature walk around the resort.

Most of the staff are helpful and friendly. Not to forget Mr. Firdaus, whom we first met at the Matta Fair back in March 2019, thank you so much for your kind assistance during our stay.

We would like to be there again in the future. Thank you Mangala Resort & Spa for the wonderful experience!!

Great place for family!

An ideal place for family, away from the city, so serene and lotsa greenery!! We stayed at Jala villa, the best villa i would say as its on d lake, with a splendid view!! All the staffs were so friendly and very accomodating. All the activities are complimentary...archery, paddle boat, kayaking, cycling, and board games. Morning walk with the other guests was great. We visited their farm with lotsa organic fruits and veges. Pool was nice and clean. Food was also good. My kids had loads of fun..will definitely visit again !!

This is a lovely resort with a wonderful team running it. The villas were nice and clean, breakfast was yummy. Kids loved the buggy rides, paddle boats, bicycles and pool. . . . 2 nights stay felt a little short. We are definitely headed back! 😊

The best escape retreat.

This is my last minute plan,booked at 3pm arrived at 7.30pm.

I have no plan for short vacay but i really need peaceful environment to clear up my stressed atmosphere.

Just to add in point..
Most of the time,I will spend my stress mood at beach front and this is my first time go into so call nature view.Ada rasa takut ye mula2 disitu

When you reach Hotels, You need to pass by security’s check which is my very first experience in 5stars hotel -the security really check your booking before let you in..At this point i felt so safe..

Then at lobby, As usual 5 stars hotels they provide you wet towel and welcome drinks while you waiting.

My room number is 209.
The room is quite far from lobby but don’t worry they have 24/7 buggy car service for you. The cutest things is, during our journey to the room the Indonesian boy, he explaining about hotels activities and what we can do here, somewhere somehow my mind blown away and asking my self “Aku kat bali ker ni”. Haahah The ambience and atmosphere so calm and authentic.

The room is big and super clean. The toilet was awesome with Jacuzzi. The view at night win my heart “U can see moonlight and stars”

So for past 3 days 2 night stay in Magala resorts,

- The have bicycles you can take for free and park at your room - For you to ride and jalan2 around hotels.

- You can play paddles boat and also archery like we do to full filled your activities. Don’t worry about payment. Its free just go at correct time.

8am-12pm & 4pm-6pm

You can do forest walk or palm tree walk and enjoy the nature while checking out various type of bird. You also can buy bread at outside and do fish feeding just at your room balcony.

The most sweet things is, They surprise us.. WITH A BOX OF CHOC.. terkejut kami suddenly someone knock on door and said Room service at 7pm.

Too many things to share, But no use if you only read but not experience it by yourself. Go.. and try stay here.. Their service are worth for every cents you spend..

Thank You, Magala Resorts we shall come back again one day.. Thank you.. To readers out there check out my photo 😘

A resort dedicated to nature
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This resort is huge with many villas and cottages. Bicycles are available for loan to cycle around the compound. There are enough activities to keep you entertained. The jala villa is quite big & spacious. The sound of nature can be heard throughout the day so if u love nature, you are in for a treat. Service is quite warm and friendly. Seems to be quite a children-friendly place as I see kids running around.

Cons:
- There is only one restaurant for food; the selection is not wide.
- Nice pool but I don’t think it is maintained regularly. I could see many things at the bottom of the pool while swimming.
