I am a person who is very particular about hotels/resorts. I normally do a detailed check even before booking for a holiday. Many of my experiences with other hotels have either been unpleasant or nt satisfactory but Harris Resort is a resort where I have been for 11 (evelen) times and still can't get enough of it. Harris has always managed to impressed me with their obssession in customer satisfaction. Each trip is a different experience as Harris upgrades frequently to suit the changing lifestyle of the people today, They do not have this mentality that this is enough for now, but their constant improvements have won the hearts of many. They have tried and is trying to adorn a modern look amidst nature, and they have been successful, what more can we ask for?
I have stayed in the Harris Room, Japanese Suites (with big outdoor bath in balcony-great for couples) and the latest cabanas (villas). The rooms are great, clean, well maintained with no foul smell. The swimming pool is nice..there is also a bar there. I was amazed to see the relaxing chairs, never seen such wonderful, cozy chairs in any 5 star hotels!
The spa which has just been upgraded comes with 5 star facilities..a sauna bath, a hot and cold jacuzzi, free flow of herbal tea and jamu. I couldn't believe when i stepped in the sauna bath, it was overlooking the mountains..the scenery was picture perfect. Even the outdoor jacuzzi was amidst a wonderful location. I had an outdoor massage which came with a jacuzzi and outdoor shower..it was totally private. My husband and i tried the sensual and hot stone massages and it was simply out of this world. The satff was very professional. After the massages, we had a herbal bath, follwed by a shower. Throughout this time, the Harris staff was kind enough to look after our 2 kids (one 8yrs and the other 2 yrs) so that i can spend some quality time with my husband. My kids were brought fishing and did many activities which they enjoyed.
Bowling was another activity which my family and i enjoyed. We had a super time competing with one another.
Harris lounge has a modern feel to it. Its not one of those where parents avoid taking their kids too. It was warm and friendly and nothing sleezy abt it.
Lastly, the staff in Harris is like no other..they go the extra mile. Even a 5 star hotel can't compete with Harris and its obvious now why they have received many awards. I can go on and on raving abt Harris and their staff..
I simply love Harris and everything abt Harris. I have been reconmending it to a lot of my family and frens and they too have enjoyed the wonderful experiences that i had with my family. That's why i am planning my 12th trip! Go to Harris and experience it for urselves..u won;t regret it..trust me. U can also email me at kuljag@ pacific.net.sg
Thank you Harries for everything and for being part of our lives now and many years to come.
