I should have written sooner but just never had the luxury of time to sit down and tell you what an amazing time my family had in Tiger Rock.
December is a terrible month – in terms of work – as most managers and employees are on leave and with deadlines set for 31 Dec, I basically was hustling for every second of the day so I could return to Malaysia for Christmas/New Year!
What can I say? We loved Tiger Rock… not just because it was a gorgeous piece of property and really unique compared to the other hotels we have stayed in but the icing on the cake was Mohan and his team who made us feel like VIP’s J and gave us the royal treatment. All of us were especially touched by the amount of care they provided to my father and my brother-in-law was so impressed he was telling his friends about the 7-star service that out-rivals all the top hotels in Singapore.
You have a wonderful team managing Tiger Rock and it is to your/their credit that the service is the first and last we speak about when we remember the holiday. We loved the rooms and the pool was gorgeous. You own a slice of paradise in Tiger Rock and I hope it always remains that way. For those few days, I completely forgot work and all my worries and it was good to see the whole family enjoying this time together.
What can be improved? Perhaps a TV at the gazebo in the guest house as it is very quiet at night and not much to do especially with the kids once they return to the rooms after dinner as most of them were not too keen to walk in the dark from the main house back to hill houses.
Tiger Rock is certainly a hard act to follow – whether in Pangkor Island or elsewhere. We had a lovely holiday and wonderful memories. I hope that one of these days, we can return to it.
Meantime, I am writing to my friend who was considering holding her wedding there to tell her what I think and what could work and might not.
Once again – Thank You.

Comments: Hi Mohan. I'm sure you do still remember danny. Husband visited tiger rock along his wife past weekend because of her business trip.
I've had a strong will to write and thank you for your warm hospitality and great foods from Bavani. This short stay at tiger rock leaves me a long lasting memory which I will definitely spread out the word to more people who concern.
Tiger rock is a great, unique and I have to say a very polarized product. Those who love it will love it forever.
Once again, thank you for your time and great effort putting us to the best pleasure. Never had such a divine service and foods even if I had a stay at 5 stars.

Comments: From every window in every house you see the jungle.
The Studio is beautiful, especially the rock bathroom.
It is so quiet, so green everywhere. So peaceful. The atmosphere is so good. Bawani’s cooking is so tasteful and so with love for details.
It is away from the world. And Mohan is a part of all of it. A special spot in Malaysia. We think we have seen the best of Pangkor.
Thank You Bawani and Mohan. We will let everyone know!

Comments: Dear Mohan and team,
We would like to thank all of you for a truly unforgettable holiday at Tiger Rock. I think the children were at first a bit taken aback after your wise lessons on basic rules when living in the jungle, but after you taught them that they can even safely hold a stick with a very poisonous viper attached to it without anything bad happening, they got the message.
Thank you also for asking Bavanni (I hope the spelling is right) to teach Annelies to cook a few dishes that she did not master yet. It seems we will see a dramatic change to our daily menus.
We all look back on a very inspiring trip along Buddhist and Hindu temples and we truly appreciate your instructions and explanations of some of the rituals. The fact that the priest in the Hindu temple was prepared to treat us as though we were part of his flock was also pretty amazing. The children loved the trips on your motor cycle and they are still grateful for the underwater goggles.
We all very much enjoyed your company and the discussions we had on all sorts of subjects. In short, this was a terrific experience and we cherish our memories of Tiger Rock, the great food and the fantastic and very personal service from you and your team.

Comments: “..so, basically wanted tell you that we had an amazing honeymoon thanks to you, and that the travel itinerary you devised for us was absolutely perfect, with the right amount of all the things we wanted! Tiger Rock in particular - which we would never have been able to find on our own - was a particular highlight of the trip, from Mohan's and everybody's hospitality to the amazing place, setting, food and island in general! So, a really great many thanks indeed!”

Firstly, before boring you with detail, let me thank you and your team for making our stay at Tiger Rock so memorable. It has taken me some time to think of how to contribute a meaningful comment for you 'visitors’ book'. This is mainly because, in conventional terms, Tiger Rock is neither a 'resort' nor a 'hotel'. It lacks the trappings of 'menus', 'cocktail lists', 'dial-up room service' and a 24-hour reception desk. It benefits immensely from having none of these. It has no need for menus or 'choice' at mealtimes - having to make such a choice would put an (albeit light) burden of decision making on your guests; far better as it is, to be served what has been created with you (the guest) in mind - and to be able to relax in the knowledge that you will be privileged to sample food of outstanding quality. What a lucky man you are to live and work in such an idyllic setting and to have such a truly talented cook for a wife!
Tiger Rock is a truly unique place. I remember other contributors to your visitors' book have commented upon the spiritual aspect to the place. I also must admit that for some reason the words 'Dharma' and 'Zen' did figure in my thoughts when staying with you.
I send you my very sincere thanks and best wishes to you, your family and the rest of the team. Christine and I hope to return one day.
