I stayed at this place for the second time and my experience was even better. I find it to be a nice and quiet place to stay in as it is away from the bust Feringgi area and town centre. It is a self catering place with cooking facilities, not that I cooked my meals, but it was nice to... More

I am not too keen with this hotel. Though the room is spacious but it has old furniture. Located in residential area. Breakfast is below standard, staying for 2 nights and keep getting sausage with omelette. Sorry to say but i wont going to return to this place for staying

Large rooms, good sized kitchen, nice pool and gym, family-oriented, quiet and peaceful, helpful and super friendly staff, far from landmarks but can organise/charter a car to send and fetch to wherever we need to go.

If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay then I recommend Century Bay. It's got large rooms, friendly staff and a very quiet atmosphere. Note though, that it is a fair distance from many places, so you will need a car to get around. It's close to the Nibong Tebal Bus Station though, so if you're taking... More

The trip itself is memorable. The staff here is very friendly and helpful, even a minor matter can caught their attention such as to provide me with washing powder. The view of the sea from the apartment is fantastic, as the scenery itself is worth the money. The breakfast is average, they serve western styles breakfast with free flow of... More

The Apts are equipped with 2 / 3 bed rooms & have excellent view facing the sea. Donot expect much service from the staff as these are primarily meant for service apt. Hv a comfortable stay here and eat out. Call the taxis your self & not from the hotel as they charge more. Internet & breakfast is bad.
