We booked our chalet through this website which offers several choices; we selected the Luxury Suite Resort that has 7 bedrooms, enough to house all of us. For those who have not been to Kukup, it's used to be a fishing village with a dominant chinese community and now sort of a getaway destination popular among locals and Singaporeans. There are bungalows, chalets and dormitories specially built for short-stays and usually packages including transport, lodging, 6 meals and visit to kelong are offered. We opted to drive in and there's a large car park for us to park safely (chargeable).
Inside the chalets, there are usually communal space for chatting, karaoke room, mahjong and game sets. And the highlight for many visitors is setting off your very own fireworks and kong ming lanterns (extra charges applicable). I believe Kukup is the only place in JB that allows fireworks (or rather the authorities chose to close an eye, thank goodness!).
Forgot to take a photo of our resort, this is the upper deck which has 7 bedrooms. Below the deck is where the owner stays, along with the kitchen and more bedrooms. Since our group was big, we had the luxury of owning the entire upper deck.
Open space at the back of our resort. This is where we played with fireworks and set off the kong ming lanterns.
The living cum karaoke room. It's been a long time since we sang karaoke and everyone had a hilarious time crooning to the favourite melodies of our time.
7 bedroom of different sizes. Some rooms can sleep 3.
This is the biggest, which can sleep 7. It became the kids' playroom.
Rooms are furnished simply but very clean.
Toilets/shower rooms are very clean as well.
And so, there's this list that states the additional things that we can order and buy :)
