Verscholen in de jungle en toch ook weer zo dichtbij de bewoonde wereld ligt dit beeldschone resort. Bij het zwembad liggen kijken naar de capriolen van de bavianen, de zweefvlucht van de visarend, de snelle overtocht van 2 neushoornvogels, luisteren naar hun specifieke geluiden, nergens muzak, het geluid van een enkele brommer ten teken dat er alweer voor ons gezorgd gaat worden en de uren werkelijk omgevlogen zijn met zwemmen, lezen, rondkijken, wat praten en vooral ontspannen. Natuurlijk hebben we als ware toeristen ook nog het Nederlandse fort en de goed bewaarde VOC-steen bekeken, op de kleine strandjes gelopen, wonderlijke gedroogde vis uitgezocht die we thuis maar gaan uitproberen en uitvoerig staan kijken bij een vissersboot in aanbouw.. Dat was allemaal leuk om te doen, wetend dat we daarna weer terug mochten naar ons "eigen resort". Mohan en zijn staf, waaronder zijn vrouw die als keukenkoningin een Aziatische Michelinster verdient, hebben onze verwachtingen meer dan waar gemaakt! (Voor het geval dat nog niet mocht blijken uit mijn beoordeling)
Hidden in the jungle and yet so close to the living world lies this beautiful resort. We have been relaxing near the swimming pool, watching the playing monkeys, the eagles high in the sky, the hornbills flying between trees, listening to all their specific noises, nowhere any "shoppingmall background musicÂˇÂ± and very sometimes the sound of a motorcycle the tell us that somebody has arrived to take care of usÂˇÂ realizing that hours have gone by while reading, swimming, watching, talking and above all: relaxing. As real tourists we made an interesting trip to the well kept Dutch fortress, the VOC stone, small beaches, a fish factory and a shipyard. Nice things to see and to do, but even more nice to go back to out wonderful ÂˇÂ°ownÂˇÂ± resort. Mohan and his staff, including his wife Bavanni who deserves a Asian Michelinstar for her excellent cooking, made all our expectations come through!

Comments: We stayed 4 days in Tiger rock with Mohan, Bavani and team and all was abolutely gorgeous : welcoming, caring, environment, lodging and cooking. A special mention for Bavani : we came back home in France ( where we get many restaurants and high level cooking classes) and decided to say that now we will compare quality of cooking on " the Bavani scale" !!
If you are looking for a little paradise, be confident, it's in Tiger Rock ! Everybody will take care with you, everybody will help, Mohan will make you discover the island, and special places he only knows, and that you could'nt discover by yourself.
We definitely recommand Tiger Rock ( You can believe us : we are especially concerned with hotels quality, as we are runing a Bed and and B in Bordeaux ) Florian and Florence

Comments: It is the second time that we enjoyed our stay in this most lovely place where everything is looked after with perfection. Bavanni, Mohan and the whole team made our stay a special treat in so far that nothing is left for granted. We would like to congratulate for this exceptional attitude and do hope that we will have again the privilege to come back to that what we call our "dreamland" where heaven comes down to earth.

Comments: Dear Mohan, Bavanni and team, We have just arrived home from our Malaysian honeymoon. We had a wonderful time but the definite highlight was our magical stay with you and I can honestly say it was absolute paradise! The service provided by Mohan, Bavanni and the team was out of this world! You couldn't do enough for us and we were extremely spoilt throughout our stay! There were so many personal, thoughtful surprises that I have never experienced anywhere else! The food at Tiger Rock was outstanding! Bavanni is a fantastic chef and we sampled so many different Malaysian dishes thanks to her-we never had the same dish twice and the produce she used was extremely fresh and all locally sourced. Mohan is an excellent tour guide and took us on a wonderful tour of the island which was fascinating and really gave us an insight into Malaysian lifestyles. He is the kindest, most friendly man you could ever meet! The setting of Tiger Rock is simply stunning, set within the jungle and surrounded with fantastic wildlife. The pool is gorgeous and the rooms were beautiful and all very unique. We had the most amazing time at Tiger Rock and were extremely sad to leave! I can't recommend this place enough and I feel so lucky to have experienced such a place. Thank you for an absolutely magical stay!
We really hope we will get the chance to visit again.
Love Ceri and Paul Baggus x

Comments: Hi Rebecca,
We have just returned from our 2nights' stay at Tiger Rock. It was just what we needed after our hectic & busy catching up with my Malaysian relatives.
We thoroughly enjoyed it all. It offered rustic charm, peace and tranquility and of course at one with the jungle.
Mohan, Bavanni and the girls were incredible in their attention and hospitality. Bavanni's fresh, home cooked meals were just yummy! We could not do without Mohan, our fantastic host, driver and waiter.
Thanks too for recommending The Studio with it's very own jungle rock shower. We loved it.
Wishing you all continuing success at Tiger Rock and hope to return some day. Nick & Naomi cannot wait to share this unique experience.
Bye for now.

Comments: Dear Mohan and team,
We just arrived back home in Switzerland where we were welcomed by a cover of snow which differs sightly from the excellent climate we had in Pongkor - Andrienne and myself are overwhelmed!
Quite frankly, we have already seen quite a number of different places in our lives, but never ever had we the chance to cumulate in one place at such a high level kindness, willingness to do well and excell, to experience the way all of you take care of each of your customers, guests and of your garden in your most lovely and loving nest combined with a subtleness in attitudes, behaviour and competences in all sorts of different ways, which can only translate a very profound and positive inner attitude towards life in general and towards people in particular.
It is Delphine and Fred who proposed us the idea of popping over to the other side of the world and come and see you even if it was for 6 days only, but they were so right in doing this so that we, as very proud parents, already proposed to all of our children to come and see themselves.
It could only be for the good of us all because it is a such a positive lesson of live, helping to broaden one's mind - so come and see the world - it is in Tiger Rock.
With all our warmest thanks to all of you, we keep in touch.
Andrienne and Jean-Jacques

Comments: What a weekend the kids did have - fishing, snorkling. The corals were really lovely especially the 'big bowl'. Can't get over the boys strategy for perfect fishing- one snorkler in the water giving instructions on where to drop lines.
