I was greeted by the beautiful lights and grand entrance. I thought I had made the right choice. As I walked towards the lift I saw that the hotel won the 2012 Trip Advisor' Travellers' Choice. This can't be a bad choice after all. However, I was disappointed with the rooms. It was dull, not brightly lighted up. It looked... More

Brilliant hotel with mega friendly staff. Hotel pool bar does the best steaks and a quick dip in the pool is well recommended with the heat of Malaysia. Rooms are great. Well maintained with great views. Sauna, steam room and gym is well fitted out and the jacuzzi is spot on. The hotel is 5mins from a bargain hunters paradise....

I wasn't as impressed with the hotels as others. We arrived in around 1 and check in was simple. However there didn't seem to have many staff members at the check in counter. I stayed in the room most of the time as we had traveled far. Room service was okay. A little pricey but nothing unusual for hotels. The... More

A place for business traveller. Quiet place but a bit out of the place. Breakfast wasn't that good although considered a high class hotel. Staff wasn't that friendly. Not much entertainment. For room rates a bit on the high side and aircon in rooms & wifi not good enough

The family room was spacious and super nice view. The kitchen had all the utensils for light cooking. The deluxe room had the... More
