Bob’s Homestay

Bobs Homestay 1Bob’s Homestay is a tranquil little resort situated at an old village by the Johor Lama river. As you lounge to the sound of children playing, insects chirping, and birds singing, you’d never guess that this resort is just two hours away from the Johor Bahru city centre.

A retired banker with a passion for fishing, the resort’s owner created this peaceful getaway on a 2ha piece of river bank that is teeming with fish.

Take your wife and kids here to enjoy family togetherness. You’ll find a refreshing space for family bonding as you escape our city’s sedentary activities to enjoy fishing, cycling, kayaking and river cruising. Beware of mosquitoes though, you will want to bring a can of natural lemongrass insect repellant.

There is free wi-fi and free parking provided, and the prices of the air-conditioned rooms are reasonable.

  • The Lodge which accommodates 10 pax costs RM300/night.
  • The Riverside Chalet which accomodates 8pax goes for RM270/night.
  • The A-Frame Chalet which accommodates 7pax is just RM230/night.
