Beautiful cabins, clean & well-equipped bathroom, wide breakfast selection & polite staff. Basically all my wife and I wanted for a nice weekend getaway. The location's a bit far away from the town centre though but that just made our getaway quieter which was nice.

Stayed in the upper level of the pavilion room and it is very warm. Took a while for the aircond to cool the whole room. They dont serve ala carte breakfast or american breakfast which is very disappointing. Overall the hotel surrounding is nice and peaceful, staff is polite and helpful.

I'll summarise: Pros Nice design and layout of the resort Nice wooden chalet rooms Comfortable bed and good bathroom Nice pool area (also bad points on the pool below) Friendly staff Cons Not 5* luxury No poolside...

Read the reviews but thankfully we did not face most of the problems stated. Had a good check in, got our buggy easily on check-in but on check-out it never showed up so we walked out with our bags and were picked up by a passing buggy. Loved the rooms!!! We were there for 2 days 1 night just to... More

Picture looks exactly like the reality. It was beautiful, relaxing place. Effortless view everywhere. Especially the rooms itself, it is so unique! Distance is not a problem because this hotel provide buggy service. Basically the guy took all of our luggage into the rooms without us requesting. Something wrong with the toilet so we called room services, I have to... More

When we arrived we were impressed with the surroundings and it felt very much like being part of nature. But the minute we walked up to reception, we were greeted with a coldness not appropriate to any resort industry. When we arrived at the Spa, we were greeted with much more warmth. However, we discovered many discrepancies between the brochure... More

the hotel interior was ok, is not modern but quite woody feel to it but is comfortable for a king size bed, however, there are virtually no sound proof for the room, so there are some luck needed when you choosing your room. dun worry if you stay far away from the lobby because there are a buggy service that...

This is the worst 5 start resort I've ever stay. Although the rooms are unique, the environment is poorly maintained. Breakfast is even worst. Bad food and bad service. The only good thing about the resort would be the rooms.

The resort was ok, but not worth the visit. Staff were friendly but can sense the absence of sincerity. Room was very warm and the aircon did not seem to be able to cool it down. Massage experience was just passable. Staff was just doing their job to get the massage done, not as warm an experience compared to experiences... More
