Dear Friends and Guests,

After twenty years of running Teluk Iskandar Inn, we've decided to retire and close the inn.

This decision was not easy, as these past two decades were full of fond memories. We have enjoyed sharing meals, stories, and experiences with all of you, in our slice of tranquility by the sea.

We'd like to thank everybody for all of their support and memories. Without a doubt, we will carry them with us as we continue onto our next adventure.

We are seeking parties that are interested in leasing, or purchasing Teluk Iskandar Inn. Please contact us at to discuss potential opportunities.

Thank you so much for twenty years of your support. We look forward to our next adventure!

With love,

Kamariah and Ibrahim

Sea Kayak

Teluk Iskandar Inn has a fiberglass row boat, but its always been a bit heavy to maneuver. Being heavy, its quite a chore to lift to the beach for exploring the beautiful coves around the inn. Although a few of the more adventurous guests have tried it out.

So when Shahril heard about an inflatable kayak, he jumped at it. It can be found at Corezone in Kuala Lumpur or at Amazon. Pump and paddles were not included but can be bought at either store or any other kayaking outlet. The Sevylor kayak is inflatable, fits in the trunk of a car and can be set up in about 30 minutes. It's quite easy to maneuver and handles the waves rather well. The kayak is not for guests but may give you an idea of possible activities to do in Mersing.

The kayak has been taken out by Shahril and Teresa a few times, the longest trip so far has been about 4km's along the coast. From the sea, in a kayak you get a whole new perspective on this wonderful place, its interesting coastline and a chance to view sea otters, flying fish and all types of water birds.
