Booked a short weekend break thru Groupon and was given the room we requested on the Tirta Premier wing which gave us splendid view of the emerald pool and the south china sea. Being on the fourth floor, the breeze was lovely.
The twin room was clean and the balcony added a lovely outdoor living space which was used to gaze into the ocean.
Breakfast was pretty extensive but by 9.30am, most food were not replenished and the clearing up was dead on time - 10am ! It would have been nice if a ten minute grace is given especially with the yogurt and fruit.
Fusion buffet spread served a good spread of local as well as international food however I find it a bit pricey after the tax. We were approached by one of the restaurant representative about the fusion dinner in the lobby and was sold by the extensive menu attached with the price excluding tax (21%). Drinks were not included apart from tea or coffee and I find them a bit pricey too.
All the price listed in the menu was without tax but when the bill is presented, we always get a slight shock on how much more we had to pay. I think it is better to have all price quoted, to include all hidden tax and charges. There was also a dinner and dance event held at the emerald pool with a stage and proper emcee. So it got very annoying when the singers from the fusion dinner buffet clashed voices with the presenters or singer from the corporate event. It was clear and very loud and most times, highly annoying especially during the time when the singer from the restaurant takes a break. We could hear all that was being announced from the corporate event stage.
The 2 emerald pool was lovely and clean. As we arrived on a quiet weekend, there were plenty of sun lounges. The beach was only a few metres away and very clean.
I had a very relaxing time there, enjoying a tranquil moment either by the pool or on the balcony of the room.
I also went for a full Indonesian massage at the spa. It was good to start with but a little annoying towards the end, as the masseur started to fall asleep. And the massage stopped 10 minutes before time was up.
My one other suggestion would be for the management to provide free wi-fi and then it would have been almost perfect.
