Bought a 2D1N package frm deal.com.sg for a quick getaway at Turi Beach wif my family frm 14-15 May. We arrived at Turi in the morning & were blown away with the view from the main lobby. Check in was smooth & fast & we were glad that we are able to chk in to 1 of the rooms first right away. We were greeted by Mr Ahmad & he was kind enough to arrange for a van to send us right up to our rooms.
Our rooms are located at the Riani wing. I understand that this is the older wing & being the older wing, well the rooms are kind of... old.... but it does gives a rustic environment. I hope that the management will keep it well maintain so as not to spoil the beauty of it.
Had our lunch at Taming Sari Cafe. We kindda regret choosing the lunch buffet. Shd ordered food frm a la carte menu instead as we saw others eating better food frm the menu as compared to the buffet. Another thing that I need to highlight to the management is abt the flies in the cafe. It kindda spoiled our appetite as its hard to eat with the flies swarming in our faces trying to share our food. Even at the buffet spread we could see the food being "conquered" by the flies & it do makes us wonder whether its safe to consume the food. Perhaps the management shd consider making the cafe air conditioned?
Luckily the fushion dinner saves the day. We lurve the open concept dinner with live band to entertain us. The food spread were commendable & quite a variety. My only complain is that we have to purchase our own drinks & for a small glass the price is a tat too expensive. I heard frm a friend that the last time she went Turi & had the same fushion dinner there's free flow range of soft drinks, juices etc.
While eating dinner we were wondering what to do nxt & decided to go karaoke at the Yacht Club Bar. There's this guy who was kind enough to help us enquire the rates & even helped us to book the room. Its a pity I forgot to ask his name coz he's very helpful & shd b commended. 1 hr of karaoke cost sgd 10 & if u extend after the 1st hr is only at sgd 8 for another hr. There's a variety of songs collections too!
Wat we enjoyed most was walking across the long bridge in the morning. We took loads of pictures & the morning breeze give us a feeling of refreshing tranquility.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Turi Beach. Due to the short stay we didnt hv time to try the water sports. We hope to be back & the nxt time we will try the new Tirta wing. I personally would like to thank Mr Antonio for accomodating my request with regards to the rooms, Mr Ahmad for being there to personally greet us upon arrival & he was also there when we were checking out to ask whether everything was fine & whether we had a pleasant stay. To Mr Kristianto, thk you for your patience for handling my reservation enquiries & also for helping to order for me the kuih lapis... they were indeed delicious. Last but not least to Ms Jumianty for her kind assistance to arrange for us transportation to be send to the ferry terminal earlier.
Our sincerest thanks,
Yasmin & Family
