Im starting to wonder if this place paid for all the TripAdvisor positive comments ,or perhaps the staffs gave the better rooms to foreigners only. This is one of the worst apartment I've ever had in my entire life for budget of RM 330. Rooms seem from the 80s. Time is not a problem but it seems the apartment has... More

We think it is the best idyllic beachfront we have stayed at. We had marble floors & overlooked a local fishing village. Management & staff were extremely helpful & friendly. We followed... More

I went there with my husband and 7 year old daughter. Loved the view from our apartment! Very low key vibe being next to the fishing village was so fun for my daughter. Can you believe we even saw monkeys and SQUIRRELS!!! Close enough to Cherating to do Batik paining (a forever memory!!), eat yummy food and get massages and... More

I have read a couple of bad reports about Sanctuary Resort on this site, however I have always found the management & staff to be extremely polite & helpful. My room was old but renovated & was extremely clean and had bottled water on my arrival. I have stayed there many times & thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Greg Wilson... More

All in all this resort was well worth the money we spent and we are planning on returning during our next Malaysian holiday. The location is second to none and the staff were very helpful. The food was really good and rooms well appointed. The best part; the pool and ocean being right there....
