If you are into architecture, the resort would interest you. The main building (reception, lounge, dining area, hall) is based on the design of traditional Terengganu wood houses. The surrounding is lush with greenery, cococut trees. The pool faces the beach, which is just a walk away. Beach is not crowded, sometimes you find you are alone on the beach.... More

The hotel was located very nicely by the beach. Ocean view room is great, you can see and hear the waves form the South China Sea very well. The room itself was poorly maintained, the bathroom was not very clean and had broken walls.and the room was not well dusted. The air condition and wifi was very cold. We had... More

This is our second visit, after seven or eight years hiatus. Lets start with the good. Location, pool, wifi... thats about it The not so good,... quite a long list, but I am sure regular travellers would have a set of minimum expectation for every dollar or ringgit they pay. In my view, it is a great opportunity missed. This... More

The room assigned to us was reasonably sized, with amenities like a kettle for coffee or tea, air conditioner that works and clean bathroom with... More

Over priced food, unfriendly staff and smelly room. Although the beach front location was fabulous the hotel wasn't. The unfriendly staff made us feel unwelcome. It appeared that the resort was largely for Malays, and not westerners. The staff were uninterested in helping us but keen on fusding around Malays. The food was nice but over priced and breakfast wasn't... More

Travelling with friends who live in KL my partner and I stayed here for 2 nights, 20th and 21st July 2015. I have to echo the other reviews in the fact the place should be had under the trade description act for using photos from when it was first built 20 odd years ago! I know you get what you... More

Very dated hotel and rooms. Pool looks nice at first sight but was not clean at all. Service is poor and very few of the staff speak english. Food is bad and no alcoholic drinks available for tourists. Only plus is that it is within 10 minutes drive from the Marang ferry terminal. Not sure if there are many other... More

This resort might look great at first look but after very few moments you discover: 1) rooms smell like hell, you have to ask for cleaning, you'll always keep same bed lining doesn't matter how many days you are going to stay, blackout every night or so 2) buffet.... Terrible buffet!!!! Food is heavy and you get the same choice... More
