I stayed over CNY 2015 with my wife and baby for five nights. The resort was heavily populated by expatriates from KL, and the drive from the capital itself is relatively easy and stress-free. The location is fantastic, and the panoramic views of the South China Sea are incredible. I highly recommend to get up early, head off to the... More

There are multiple aspects that set this resort apart from others. First and foremost, the service is impeccable. Not only were we personally greeted by the general manager and assistant general manager, but all staff members went out of their way to be friendly and attentive at all times. I have to hand it to the YTL group of hotels... More

This was our penultimate hotel before ending our drive through Malaysia at Kuantan. We were greeted by one gong as we drove up to reception and check-in. The staff were amazing offering us a cold towel and a wonderful ice-cold refreshing drink. We were then taken to our room and were amazed at the spacious ultra-clean areas. The bed was... More

We went there for a family get away good service and pleasant staff . But the hotel needs a facelift Apparently they r going to refurbish the hotel and make it a six star hotel. Manager is very capable and with his background he can turn things around. The beach is not so great for swiming but very relaxing

It is not worth the time to travel all the way to this resort. With taxis and a flight, we arrived shortly after noon and it was disappointing to note that there was no one there to welcome us.
