Their facilities available as answered by the lobby staff are the nice looking pool and the sea. Its nearby the Merang Jetty, and its 40-45 mins away from KT town. It's only worth a stopover or a short weekend.

We stayed here to dive the islands of Bidong (great diving btw). As Westerners, we were shocked at the poor service and poor quality of the rooms and food. I would say this is a locals only type of place to stay. Please avoid staying here if you can, you will be disappointed. Staff was not attentive nor accommodating, buffets... More

Initially we thought that the price was to high, but since all other resort were full and we wanted to be close to the jetty to Redang we took the room anyway. the room was basic but okay, swimming pool is the eye catcher! nice! To celebrate the end of Ramadan the hotel offered s free buffet and music, food... More

Firstly, one should know that this resort is far away from Kuala Terengganu (40 mins drive) so it's not your ideal base if you want to explore KT. Some reviewers complained about the difficulties in getting a taxi into town, well, that is expected when this place is in the middle of nowhere. Find a KT hotel instead. It is... More

Has a lovely infinity pool and overlooks a beautiful beach. Rooms are a bit run down and air con is loud, also ran into a few creepy crawlies on our stay! However, beds are comfortable and rooms have a TV with one English channel. Staff seemed a bit clueless and unfriendly and often ignored requests meaning we had to ask... More

My family and I stayed there for a night before heading for Redang. Nice hotel, well designed, good service from the staff. They have a nice infinity pool (a good warm up before heading for your Island adventure). We stayed at the room with the pool view. The rooms are okay. However, very poor breakfast buffet. Fried eggs were too... More

friendly staff, nice breakfast, rooms are nice, pool is nice, beach is okay. If you want to have some action, it's the wrong place though. Even though it was nearly fully booked, nothing was going on. Due to the muslim culture, they don't sell alcohol (which we respect). It's a really boring place. It's alright for a night.

Stayed here one night before traveling onwards to Redang. Hotel is very much focused on the locals, thus customer service is not always optimal. Not a major problem though. Rooms are slightly outdated, but still function properly. Fine for a night.

I'd like to start by saying some of the reviews are very unfair, this is a malay resort that isn't really marketed towards westerns and so we should respect that we are visiting their country rather than try and make them cater directly for us. I know from previous experience a lot of malays do tend to swim clothed although... More
