It was my second stay in El-Azzhar Camp in Morib, Selangor. The first was years ago during a camp with fellow scholars. When dad suggested this place for a one-night extended family gathering, I was curious. Dad told me that they have a new building housing nicer hotel rooms than the dormitory I remember.

Most people would know this place as a venue for motivational camps or company trainings. I heard that they are branching out to cater weddings, family days, and other sorts of (legal) gathering as well. There is no swimming pool yet but I believe that is in the future plan to make the camp more family-friendly.
So, while the rest of my family members were staying in the huts, I got one of the new rooms!

I think that's the pond I went into during one of the camp activities years back. Evil training facilitators would love this place. There's so many punishing activities they can concoct here.

There is a restaurant in the camp. It is open to public but you might want to call ahead and check their operating hours (and promotion). It has a small stage and plenty of space and can be rented for private events.

Booking - No online-booking available (that I know of). Phone the camp directly.
Rate - Fair. Call to enquire.
Location - Acceptable. No beach but there are shops and restaurants within walking distance. Need transport to nearest public beach.
Dining - Good Malay food*
Service - No room service (it is first and foremost a training venue) but staff are polite and helpful.
*I went for iftar promotion at the D'Bagan Restaurant. Can't comment on food provided for training/wedding/other events.
I recommend El-Azzhar Camp to companies, clubs, schools and other organisations looking to hold gathering/camp/training and families for family day. Tourists with own transportation might also consider this place as a basic but comfortable short-term accommodation in Morib/Jugra/Sepang area. The camp is about 41km away from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
Check out their website here. It is in Malay language only though.
