Free shuttle from ferry terminal to the resort and a welcome drink. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite (just the two of us), which was great. Staff service was excellent and they were very attentive to our needs. Requested for a wine bucket & ice as we brought wine back to the resort. Staff came up with the bucket shortly and even wrapped the wine glasses with cling wrap. We were impressed with their excellent service and attention to details. However when we went back to our room at night, we were shocked to see one of the staff and a technician fixing the door in our suite. Very much caught us by surprise. They only left after half an hour which we felt disturbed as we couldn’t have our privacy. Perhaps, they could have informed us or request for permission before carrying out this job. Large bed, however could spot a few stains on the covers. We also requested for turn down service through email but was not provided although it has been agreed to us. Wifi isn’t provided in the rooms either, we had to pay about $1.50/hour for access to wifi which we felt could be done better considering the fact that there is free wifi in the public areas such as restaurants and lobby. Resort location is also pretty far from the shopping malls (approx 40mins ride) and there is nothing much to do in that area. Overall, it has been an enjoyable experience there. Well trained staff who sincerely want to serve & help. Walked past the pool & many restaurants surrounding it, but what caught my attention was the jap teppanyaki restaurant – open kitchen concept. Wanted to try it but it closes early at 10. The resort also has spa and massage facilities behind the pool. Very well decorated and interesting concept, we will definitely come back again to try it one day.
