Coming away from the town and come back down on earth again this hotel might be what you're looking for. It is a beach hotel and the beach is nice, it's clean and it's long. Perfect for jogging, walking or just sit down and enjoy. The hotel has a bar connected to the beach. The room we had was brilliant,... More

When we went there, the hotel was not very full which means we had the staff just for us. The room was great with the biggest bed I ever slept in, a terrace with a beautiful view, the swimmingpool huge and the beach just there. We had 3 delicious nights

Though nothing went missing,... More

The hotel was actually well maintained and nice. We got upgraded to a room with a beautiful view. The staff was professional and checked us in earlier than the usual 2-3pm. The only problem that I had was the beach. The beach is not swimmable at all, the bottom is pretty gross and sucks your feet in... I am not... More

We stayed in this hotel during a long weekend holiday. The reviews were good & considering it is a 5 star hotel, our expectations were high. The staff was friendly & warm through out our stay. We were a bit disappointed with our room. The air conditioner was difficult to work with & not cold enough. We were unfortunate enough... More

Was here with a group and was very disappointed with the whole experience. Check-in was very late - much beyond the promised 3 pm time. Rooms are quite old and have not been properly cleaned. We used the Seri Menanti hall for our event, but banquet staff does not live up to the 5-star status of the hotel and were... More
