Tey Chee Yan
Mr Tey is the owner-operator of Gunung Ledang Resort, in addition to being a partner in Explora Pte Ltd. He grew up in the sleepy town of Tangkak in the northern part of Johor state in Malaysia. It is regarded as the gateway to Gunung Ledang (or Mt Ophir as it is popularly known). He reminisces about the times when, as a boy, he splashed about with his friends in the waterfalls at the foot of Mt Ophir, known as the Puteri Falls.
Later on, he graduated with an Engineering degree, but his career took a change and he found himself in the hospitality industry.
When you meet him, it’s not hard to see that he made the right choice. His easygoing, friendly nature endears him to all who visit Gunung Ledang Resort, and he does his level best to ensure that they have a pleasant and memorable stay and experience at Gunung Ledang.
He is a Tangkak native through and through; the locals recognize him almost everywhere he goes in Tangkak, and he is regarded as a pillar of the community. He readily supports local events and sits as a board member on some local business organisations.
It is his wish to see Gunung Ledang as the preferred tourist destination in the immediate region, for both Malaysian, Singaporean and international guests alike, where they can experience first-hand the natural wonders on offer at Gunung Ledang.
