This resort was very clean and filled with many activities to mention (check on line). Typical resort that charges for everything but to breathe. The staff are great and the several offerings with bars, pools, golf, etc make it a very enjoyable stay.
Probably the biggest pitfall of the resort is the ridiculous expensive prices for drinks and an inability to provide drinkable coffee. Beer is S$7:50 a drink and wine is S$120+ for a bottle that costs $12 in Australia (Aussie readers - that's for Jacobs Creek!!!). As a group of 8 people we told the staff if they only made 200-300% mark up we would have drunk 20 bottles easily in 5 nights: instead we drank none.
The ultimate reason for visiting this place is for some of the best golf courses you will ever play - utterly brilliant.
I agree with other 'feed-backers' forget the ocean view garbage. there are no ocean views. Possible 'glimpses' but no views. you do get pool views on the ocean side though (from room 4050 East wing).
There is now a direct ferry to the resort from Singapore but the town ferry is also not a big deal.
Be careful when leaving your room - the doors do not close automatically.
