I would say this hotel is a complete place for a family vacation in Batu Ferringhi. There is a one big swimming pool consists of pool for adult, jacuzzi corner and pool for kids. There is a bar in the middle of the pool for those who loves to chill while swimming. The room is clean, spacious and complete with... More

Dear Thivanka, We are delighted that you and your family have enjoyed our spacious rooms, the foot reflexology by our onsite Ricky and the water sports. Regrettably where we are located along a busy shipping route, the sea water quality has the unpredictable presence of jelly fish. Hence, we compensate this situation with a hygienic and safe swimming pool for... More

Dear David1804, I am glad in general you found our staff good, friendly and helpful and they are indeed empowered to serve our guests without overt management presence. However, I am disappointed about the Kelapa Bar staff’s lack of engagement in offering our services. We will take corrective action that this will not recur. I am sorry you have the... More

Very Helpful staff, especially in light of the mistake we initially made in booking the Bayview in Georgetown, the Georgetown staff were excellent in resolving the problem, and sorting our stay at the beach resort. The hotel is a little tired and showed signs of a vast gracious hotel from a previous time, but sadly it has not been kept... More

Dear Jamescole, Thank you for your nice comment on our Bayview staff who had assisted you with your booking. Indeed we are very different in style & look from the modern day hotel and we do try to maintain our retro feel as part of the hotels concept. Emphasis is always placed on the substance of our caring & efficient... More

The hotel is in need of refurbishment, many of the general service areas are out of date (reception, lounge bar, main restaurant, bedrooms). The feeling in the hotel is one of neglect and lack of attention to detail, the main restaurant for breakfast is more like a factory company cafeteria, than a hotel restaurant. Many of the reviews here say... More

The Deluxe rooms are fully renovated, the Superior is partial and even the Standard rooms have been updated. As I am unable to ascertain your room number, I am unable to comment further on the room.
