This place is worth a visit especially if you like somewhere quiet, don't want too many people around on the beach and if you have young children. The concept is fantastic where there are animals such as deers, turkeys, cockerels and little goats roaming around freely. They are very friendly too. Water is very clear and the sea is calm....

When we reached the island, we were pretty amazed by the hotel and its surroundings. There were animals roaming around (eg: deers, peacocks, turkeys), and the lawn was perfectly trimmed. But since the hotel is the only resort on this particular island, it was a very quiet experience for us. No other restaurants/ shops on the island except the hotel's.... More

Our family (2 adults, my mother and our sons 2 and 4) stayed in the resort over a long weekend. We chose a 2 room bungalow facing the playground, which turned out to be an excellent choice! It overlooks the playground with the sea in the background. Excellent for parents to have a drink while watching kids play in the... More

We arrived on a pleasant 30 minute boat journey from the mainland, but had I known what was in store, I would have got the ferry right back. We booked for 4 nights, but stayed just the one - and that says it all. The rooms weren't cleaned from the previous guests, with litter in the cupboard drawers, old towels... More

Two stars for fiendly and helpful service + nice secluded location, and proximity to Singapore. Missing stars for too expensive pricing, very basic breakfast (only cheap packaged juice, plain toast, egs and jam + fruits - everything else comes with a price tag e.g. second juice, baked beans, pancake...) Food in general was quite dissapointing taking into account that full... More

The location is great; the resort gives access to 2-3 beaches, very scenic ones. The only one restaurant has mostly buffet , lunch and dinner and 'a la carte' dishes are there too but one gets bored if one has to eat the same over 3-4 days. we were there for 3 nights. Often with so many coconut trees around,... More
