Entrance fee was RM5. Love the atmosphere, they have great view and great beach. The hotel room maintenance will not meet up to your expectation as it is really cheap. My friends and I found 2 huge lizards in the room but the AC is doing fine and cold. Food served in their restaurant aren't that pricy and it was... More

Not too commercialize, clean n well planned resort. Beautiful beach, peaceful and simply relaxing! Nice chalet at an appropriate price. Food was not too pricey but buffet dinner was so so. Breakfast was a let down with so limited choice. A friendly uncle at the entry gate greets everyone with a big smile! Overall,we love it and will come back... More

Good place for a short trip, good for family and people who wanted to be away from the city life during weekend. Good and affordable food offered by the restaurant. Not much activities offered, recommend to travel in group, so that you can prepare your own activities.

It was a short trip to Sematan with fellow course mates during the weekends, upon reaching the hotel, an admission fee of RM5 need to be paid. (except for in-house guest) . Fortunately, we manage to book 3 rooms, RM 198 nett each for the weekend room rate, which is RM30 more expensive than the weekday's room rate (RM168 nett).... More

Went there with a family of 8. I would say the surrounding is perfect. Long stretch of beach, infinity pool with separate kids pool. We took the quadraplex chalet. So pretty double storey chalet as if you are inside a boat. Clean toilet. Cabin facing the sea. Its quite windy during our stay. You can hear the ocean wave even... More

Enjoy the quiet and serene surrounding of the property with Stunning Sun rise view and long sandy beach. The property provide a variety of room choice from Chalet to Hostel style. Bicycle are available for rent. The best time to stay is during the weekdays. The property is about 2 hrs drive from Kuching City.

This place had a great beach and an endless pool. The staff was very helpful. I wish there had been more guest. The resort is a short 100 km drive from Kuching. The place was so peaceful, it would be a great place to go for a cheap honeymoon. They have very private cabins as well as a nice little... More

This place could really be a great place to stay at with its nice and calm location, infinite pool, beach etc. Unfortunately it lacks maintenance. For example we had to manually fill the tank of the toilet before flushing, walls was dirty and need new paint, some showers to the nice swimming pool was broken. Ah, and one last thing,... More

Went there by bus from Kuching, very horrible experience. Strongly recommend you to drive instead. Worth the suffer after seeing the nice view! Breath taking resort and friendly staffs. Rented bicycle to ride around, went to town, long house etc. RM50 bicycle for 1 day per pax. Add up RM100, which equal to renting a car from Kuching, bicycle rental... More

There are quite a number of cottages facing the south china sea and only about 100 meters from it. The cottages are attractive comfortable , but merely adequate , a refrigerator and overhead fan would make life more appealing . The dining area has a great atmosphere and attractive decor , the food is excellent , the chef being of... More
