As we pulled up to the resort I had a bad feeling. The receptionist was very hard to understand as she spoke so quietly. After a long check in they finally gave us our keys to the room which was a far distance from reception. We had ordered a large double and were given two standard twin beds. The room... More

This is set on a small bay on the South China Sea. The water is fantastic and safe to swim - sometimes bathtub hot. The setting is superb - the bay is arced by mountains. The resort is a bit tired, but quite OK. Get a coastal rather than hillside room as there are no food facilities up there while... More

This resort is bit away from Kuching city. Location is excellent on hills. Beach is very good, neat and clean. Food served is very good. Hotel staff is decent and cooperative. Swimming pool is also very good. Good place to enjoy and relax with family. I liked this place. I have stayed here two times.

Requested for chalet near swimming pool & beach, but was given one that is nearest to the std balcony rooms & car park, beach very far & out of sight. Chalet was one of a 3... More

Room is ok and hotel location by the beach is quite nice. There is a swimming pool available but conditions did not look tempting. Food is average. The... More
