Spa: The most expensive massage I have even had in my life, and I have a massage almost every month. One hour of massage for almost 90sgd. Massage is ok, nothing outstanding, actually they don’t massage head at all, and only maybe 2min of feet. Honestly, waste of money. Restaurants: Terrible service. Waiting time is very long to get menu,... More

The rooms and facilities have been aging all the time but I didn't see professional maintaining being carried out. The beds are old and hard and the sheets have stained. The beach is nice and the food is good. But the main thing is that the facilities have not been maintained well.

Very nice place for sunset! Our room is ocean panorama deluxe room which supposed to facing ocean view. However, a little disappointment due to the ocean view was blocked by all the trees. Thus, balcony is not clean for us to sit and relax to enjoy the view. For a 5 stars hotel supposed to provide all toiletries but lack... More
