SECTION FOUR: SAFETY
Is there anything we should be worried about?
Our ground is a private land and is safe. As we are bordered by on streams on two sides, the incursion of wild animals is extremely rare. You may occasionally spot a couple of indigenous Orang Asli villagers or kids hunting for fish or frogs; they keep to themselves in general so there’s no cause for alarm or concern.
We advocate that you do not leave children unattended as they may accidentally injure themselves while playing both indoors and outdoors.
The lodge itself sits above the ground and well over the stream’s high water level, so in the event of heavy rain and the stream swelling rest assured everyone will be safe and dry.
Whilst we have taken all necessary measure to ensure safety standards are met, you are required to exercise your own discretion in assessing your or your dependent's ability to accept risk. Tanah Larwina will not be responsible for the Guest’s safety against events including but not limited to accidents, personal injury, death, acts or defaults caused by third parties, acts of God, flood, theft or even acts of negligence. By entering our premises and using any of the facilities, you shall be deemed to have agreed to abide by our terms and conditions.
