If you plan to visit this place, do think again. With the amount spent, Sentosa will be a better choice. When I 1st stepped into the villa, it seems a rather cosy place, very resort feel to it. Checked into room, and everything was fine at 1st.
The disappointment starts with the spa. I guess there's lot of construction going on in Indra Puri (next door), and the spa area happens to be right smack where you can hear the noisy tractors plowing the green, and the heavy duty generators buzzing away. There's much construction going on at Tempat Senang itself, and I can hear a guy climbing a ladder up the spa area to do some work!! My spa therapist has to leave me on 3 separate ocassions to ask the MEN outside not to chat so loudly and to stop their work and keep their volume down. At a point, Jasmine, the manager of Tempat Senang has to intervene and ask them to stop working. Can you imagine. I suppose I leave SG for a relaxed getaway, but I didnt get to destress at all, and worse still, worry abt being embarassed if any workers outside might see my half naked body as the spa place is like an open balcony with see thro curtains and bamboo blinds to keep the sun and whatever at bay.
And did I mention since there's construction going on at Tempat, there's another group of men hanging ard behind the swimming pool? So you guessed, I didnt use the pool.
I stayed at the Thai room, the best of the suites/ rooms at Tempat Senang, cos there's 2 panels of window panes, letting light into the room. There's really nothing to shout abt.. Please do not take any other rooms, as they're deemed to be quite dark, especially the Indian room, cos there's no privacy at all, it's facing the common living room, so you definitely have to close your room curtains. As for the Bali room, it's just next to the reception and office, and the jacuzzi room is definitely not worth paying extra $40 for it... it's really just a jacuzzi without a view.
At night, if you love nature, especially the commando mosquitoes, then you or them, are in for the treat! haha. We had beer can chicken, it's nice.. the alfresco dining is good too, IF NOT for the mosquitoes and the BATS.. yes, bats flying in and out of the dining area... wow, i got 5 mosqi bites, and hubby got 6, so we decided to run back into our room without finishing dinner.
At ard 8am next morning, I hear the tractors AGAIN. damn. The breakfast is just breakfast, nothing fantastic to mention...
However, the service is overall good. The therapists are professional, so are the other staff there.
So in general, not a place for great romance and relaxation. Thumbs down to Tempat Senang.
