The resort was kind enough to accommodate our last minute request for complimentary transportation. It was a 1hour15min drive from the ferry terminal. Room was pre-assigned and setup accordingly prior to our arrival.
The property is located at a quiet spot with spectacular sea view. They have villas and spa over the water and offer a variety of water activities. But I must say that there is close to nothing within walking distance.
Room: simple decoration, clean and decent wifi signal, but the wifi speed never seemed to surpass 1Mbps throughout the stay. There were lots of mosquitoes. On the minibar was a tiny bottle of insect repellent with no price tag, not sure if it’s chargeable as everything else was. We brought our own anyway.
While we were having a late lunch at the restaurant (which is just 1-step behind the reception), some worker sprayed pesticide just 2 tables away and it smelled horrible, not a very good dining experience.
Later, we approached reception to enquire about limousine service. However, they had the car available but not the driver. We asked the receptionist for extra towels which never came, ended up walking in to the housekeeping office and asked the guy directly.
BBQ dinner starts from S$29 per pax. We walked to a nearby local eatery on the roadside: steamed whole fish + cockles + 2x omelets + stir fried vege + black pepper squid + 2x fried rice + plain rice + 4 drinks… only S$27!
Cold water pressure in the room (tap/shower) is almost non-existent. Moreover, we found the tap water ACIDIC the following morning, leaving an uncomfortable sensation on the skin/lips.
Buffet breakfast was average, but it was 'ok' considering the price point of this resort. Room with breakfast for 2 was S$98++ from Agoda. Overall, it’s an ‘ok’ place for a low budget short getaway.
