This is a nice hotel perhaps lacking only in style. We stayed three nights. There is free parking and you enter through a large atrium and the rooms are to a high standard. We booked a family room which was huge with nice views and the internet is great. The pool is great with a bar and a play pool... More

Opulent splendor in the reception. Reminded me of the inside of the Luxor in Las Vegas, with glass bullet shaped lifts going up the interior walls of the gigantic central space over the reception area. Beautiful plant displays. Courteous and friendly reception staff. Pianist/singer every evening in bar area on one side of the cavernous ground floor. We had a... More

We stayed for 7 nights at the start of April. Arrival: Reception was fine, booked in no problem and were given an ocean view room. The whole resort is 1990's decor, which is cool, the open atrium in the centre of the resort allows every room to have a view of some sort and has the best retro lifts in... More

Dear Neil C, We are delighted that overall you scored us with a 5/5 rating on Value, Location, Sleep Quality, Rooms, Cleanliness. I apologise for the delay in resolving the room-safe issue which was eventually fixed. We have always had mixed reviews about our atrium lobby (or style of the Resort), thankfully most of them are good and we are... More

We stayed at the Bayview in Batu Ferringhi for 7 days and adored this place from the moment we were dropped off at the large portico type entrance and walked into the spacious open atrium that serves as the reception area, lounge and bar - so different from any other enclosed air conditioned type hotel lobbys that we have experienced...

My wife and I stayed 10 days this trip. Geez, you would have to be very hard to please if you did not like this resort. Breakfast very diversified, plenty of it and caters for all, you do not need to have lunch that's for sure. The rooms are very clean and attention to detail is paramount. Rooms face in... More

We have just returned home from 6 days at Bayview. Overall our trip was good. We have stayed at many hotels around the globe - some 5 star luxury and some not so good. Saying that we aren't fussy travellers so some details may be less important to us than they are with others. However I will go into as... More

We had 4 nights at the Bayview Beach and enjoyed our stay there. We had previously stayed here about 8 years ago. When we arrived and looked around it was as if nothing has changed. I think that the hotel is now in need of a makeover it is looking a bit tired in places. Having Said that the rooms... More

Dear JeffDurhamCity, Thank you for returning to stay with us again after your last visit 8 years ago. Though the hotel building structure remains more or less the same, we have gone through a make-over to freshen-up our rooms. New flat screen TVs and furnishings were added to the rooms which I am sure that you would have noticed. I... More

The first thing that is different with this hotel is the atrium lobby. Although it is covered, it appears to be open air - you get a cool breeze going through the atrium in the evenings and in the early mornings but it can however be hot and humid during the day (even with fans turned on). Fortunately, the hotel... More
