It was a very traditionally designed hotel. The interior is built according to the local "Kampung" like design and was very unique. Love the beach especially at night because it is quiet and very relaxing. Room was just ok but if you are looking for relaxation, this is home away from home. And not forgetting there is a golf course...

The hotel doesn't look as if it's been maintained at all. The room was clean (no sticky floors, cobwebs, dirty towels, sheets, etc.) though. The bed is really uncomfortable and the 3 pillows that we in the room were all completely different in size, softness, etc. The breakfast buffet area was pretty cramped considering the number of people that were...

A big rambling resort hotel on the East Coast of Malaysia. Has seen better day, looks and feels tired. Rooms pleasant and fairly comfortable. Air-cons could do with servicing as they do not cool that well. You have to have the ceiling fan on to get a comfortable level in the room. On-suite facility basic. The WiFi is very poor,...

Hotel room door still utilises conventional key, not the electronic type. Asked for a king size bed during phone reservation but given two single beds upon arrival. Spent the first night killing 2 cockroaches. Breakfast spread was the same every morning during my 3 day stay this month. Taxis anywhere from this hotel is marked up whereby the hotel staff...

Stayed here for a week during a golf tournament that was played on the resort course. Overall the hotel is nice, with nice big rooms, very good dining options, a good golf course and a nice setting on the ocean. I would say that some areas of the hotel are in need of some upgrade but couldn't find anything major...

I stayed here around two and a half years ago and since then with new name, new management and likely new owners it has gone down hill. The studio one bar was closed for renovation 2 1/2 years ago, guess what- it's still closed. what a waste of a good venue. I have been here for 6 days and the...
