I went for Chinese New Year with my 20 something daughter who lives in Singapore. The chalets are fairly basic but have every thing you need and were clean. The air con works well and it is nice to have a varandah to sit out on. We played card games and scrabble! I loved the cosiness of the hut and it is comfortable.
The resort is very large and you can use the facilities of the main hotel....pools etc. There are several good restaurant's to use and if you dont want to walk you can get the free shuttle. The Indian was our favourite. The food in the buffet was great too.
The beach is close and is great. Considering it was chinese new year it was fairly quiet. You can rent various things eg body boards. There is some tar on the beach which can get on your shoes, take some tar remover and it soon comes off no problem. We paid an extremely good rate going through one of the companies listed on Trip Advisor.....I couldn't find it else where for near the cost.
We loved it and saw it as Glamping! If you are fun loving and don't expect perfection then this is for you. Otherwise pay more money and go and stay in one of the various different types of accommodation, of which there are many....the main hotel, luxury bungalows etc.
We were there for 4 days and I would go back. The staff are friendly and there is a free shuttle bus to and from the airport. Just make sure the driver knows you are in the beach huts so your luggage isn't dropped at the main resort, a minor problem that was soon sorted. :-) We hired electric bikes for an hour which was fun, although take care as not maintained to the highest standard. My daughters pedal fell off but it was so funny we couldn't stop laughing!
The band are very good in the club and can play most music. It was a shame not many people used it. It just seemed to be us in there most nights. However the same band every night can be a bit boring however good.
We didn't leave the resort which as you would expect is fairly expensive so I would imagine going to the town would be cheaper. We just wanted to relax which we certainly did. We had some big rainstorms but you must expect this as it was monsoon season. We enjoyed watching them.
