We stayed at this place for one night after paying for five. It was the worst hotel experience. We had been to Vietnam the previous two weeks and thought we would unwind and treat ourselves in a luxury stay, which the hotel's photos suggest. The hotel is basically a suburban house set amongst industrial premises situated on a busy dual... More

Location is some 15-20 mins drive from the town centre; 20-25 Ringgits by taxi. The Secret Sanctuary is alongside a main road and traffic noise at night is a problem in at least one room. There is also noise from the popular bar and restaurant and the music played there, though to be fair Cyril the owner did offer to... More

We stayed in Cyril's place for three nights. There is so much thought put into the decor and design of this place which makes it a really unique and out of the ordinary place to stay. Our room was quirky and comfortable and the pool/hammocks/waterfall all very enticing. The food was very good and the bar area was really cool.... More

Where do I start....... From the moment I arrived I felt like I was truly on an unforgettable holiday that I will remember for the rest of my life.

A bit of a fantasy really. I love the unknown and this is what I experienced. I was attracted to the visuals of the accommodation and travelers comments and was not disappointed. Cyril and Julia are the perfect hosts, opening up their home with truely open arms. Julia is the sweetest young lady you could ever meet. Julia's thoughtfulness made... More

This is a very cute guest house type place with a few rooms and welcoming and helpful staff. Nothing fancy, but nice atmosphere. Only complaint is the distance from town and that the cab rides were a bit pricey. Food was good, pool is cute.

This is a real wonderfull place. We were picked up from the airport by Julia and taken to SSBC on the outskirts of town.
