The resort is really lovely, the location is brilliant. The sea view rooms face the sea brilliantly. The pool is so relaxing, one of the nicest pools. The location is jsut at the start of Murud. Zaid was very helpful. Only thing the hotel lacked was a kitchen for meals. Would have loved to have the local cuisine in-house. A... More

Murud is a small place to chill... There are many options to stay.. If you are looking for a budget hotel and a comfortable stay, Sea Shell Resort is a good option... They have a small swimming Pool in their Resort. The location is right at Murud Beach.. The staff is very hospitable... I liked the Resort.. The rooms are... More

The place is not at all a place which you will look for at Murud. There is no view of the sea. Hospitality of the stuffs are horrible. No basic amenities. Forget about any luxury and certainly overpriced. Better to avoid this place. Far below from medium types of hotels.

The hotel has a small pool in front, the rooms are clean and sort of cozy, but simple. The best thing was the sea view and sunset view direct from the room. The garden is nicely maintained. The disappointment was no wifi and the breakfast for whatever was left. The bed is pretty hard. They are building new rooms in... More

I booked this "Resort" after reading some positive reviews on Tripadvisor. I stayed there for two nights in December 2014. The rooms are just average, not better than a lodge. Room service was almost non-existent. The restaurant was not functional, as construction work was going on. This was not informed to us even when booking was made 1.5 months in... More

Problem with manager picking up the call and respond on time. So guys you need to keep calling many times and if by chance you are lucky manager will pick your call. Don't call landline because the guy at reception appointed for answering you has no authority to respond or comment on any thing.

I should have consulted tripadvisor rather than the Lonely Planet! Overpriced and appalling service. Guests are about as welcome as leprosy. Had to hassle even for toilet paper. "Multicuisine restaurant" is non-existent. Wifi is non-existent. Hot water is non-existent. Lift is empty well with water and rubbish inside. Staff watch you carry bags up three flights and don't help. Owner... More

Dont go by the name "Resort" it comes nearly close to the "Jab we met" decent Hotel. Infact the only Resort that qualifies as a resort in Murud is Golden Swan where we had our lunch and breakfast. there is no complimentary water and peak rates in December were ~4700 for a non-ac room. The only good thing about the... More

Let me start with the look and feel of this hotel... first u enter to parking area and look at it you have feeling that u r coming to an under construction site... Staff - most of them are locals who doesn't understand concept of hospitality industry; untrained and immature. Though they r polite and calm when u talk with... More

We were a group of 15 (including 5 kids) travelling from Mumbai to Murud. We had booked 2 rooms in advance each with 5 beds. The rooms were neat, clean and spacious. My only problem was with the service. The front desk manager was very rude to us over some misunderstanding with our lunch order. I wouldn't be going back... More
