I spent a few nights of my honeymoon at Bunga Raya and I must say overall it was a really disappointing experience. I am not normally a complainer and I wanted to love it SO MUCH but as many of the other reviews say it is a great location but feels like kids playing at running a resort and none of those special touches you expect of a luxury resort are there especially given the price. We splashed out on the spa package and turned up there a couple of times and they'd lost our bookings so we couldn't have our treatments, there was rubbish on the beach, the towels at the pool had holes in etc etc. The food is really average especially for the price. I feel sorry for the staff as they are really lovely people and trying really really really really really hard but just haven't had the 5 star training. It reminded me of the saved by the bell episode where they help to run a resort. I can understand the wine being expensive but we had some rubbish - one night we got a bottle which cost USD 80 - i later googled it and found it is USD 12 on line...
