4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed 9 nights, attentive hotel staff, clean well kept rooms, wonderful breakfast with much selection. Didn't use gym but it looked good, pool and pool area were very nice. Would definitely stay here again. Lots of local food stalls with good food in area. Beach not great but nice for a morning or evening walk

Breakfast is till 1130am over @ the main building, which was a pleasant surprise to us who have little ones who wake up at 10am daily. and the spread of the breakfast is sumptuous with local and international favours. The only dislike is the small swimming pool with... More

Typically I am coming from Southern China, spend the weekend in Kowloon and fly to Malaysia on Sunday afternoon. Rather than stay in the Gurney area for the weekend I decided to try Batu Ferringhi...

This hotel have a beach and a hillside section - we prefer the hillside as it is less noisy. The room we had was large and clean, but the bathroom could do with some attention. One gets what one pays for. The housekeeping service was amazing - one day we got towel swans and flower petals on our bed. The... More

It was only two of us, but we need the balcony which not available in any double room. The room was so clean,... More

I am still currently staying at the hotel with still 2 nights left and I wish I had more. The way we were welcomed by the Assistant manager Ganesh and Shareena made our trip start on a very... More

It's by the beach with a good pool, lots of space and a great location. Nearby shops, bars and all. Rooms are good, well fitted. Staff are great, good not be more friendly or helpful. Only low point was being stung by jellyfish! I had a great room on 7th floor with private balcony.
