We visited the resort from 15th to 17th May. The hotel pick up at the ferry terminal was convenient and comfortable. The check in at the reception was swift with a ginger ale given at the time of arrival, which was indeed refreshing. The room are all sea facing and have a wonderful view, The rooms were quite comfortable with complete privacy for second floor and above (i loved the size of the room and the bathroom). The staff can do better on the cleanliness front (we found multiple larvas and red ants in the bathroom!!).
Mind you the resort is in the middle of nowhere, which i wanted and loved it. It would be better that ppl get their own beer and cig either from singapore or from the shop at the arrival as the price in the resort for the same is SGD8/beer. The room service was quite efficient, however we were a tad disappointed on the food front. Among other things we tried fish and chips, which in all honesty was inedible, however their club sandwich was quite satisfactory. Most of our food we had in the cafe, which was just about ok, however expensive for the taste and preparations. We tried the Japanese restaurant which was a turn off for us as the chicken preparation served was quite hard in texture. The breakfast buffet was relatively comprehensive and good.
The swimming pool was quite good, however has steps and can be dangerous if you are not careful. There are lot of activities for the water sport lovers.
We tried the spa, and it was completely blissful. The staff was very friendly and helpful and ready to tend the needs of the guests.
Pros: Complete relaxation for those who want to get away from the hustle bustle of city. Beautiful resort feeling and ambiance. Nice and big rooms, beautiful sea view, lots of greenery, friendly staff, spa, swimming pool.
Cons: Food, cleanliness.
Tips: Get your own beer, cig and snacks. Try to get the room on the 4th floor as it has best view, closer to the lift in order to get to the restaurants, and to the reception.
