this resort is newly constructed. It is actually a mixed hotel/residential development. Having said that, it should put some perspective on this resort.
I chose to stay here as I wanted a spacious room for the little one. Safety, easy parking and affordability were my main deciding factors and this resort matched them best among others in Johor area.
Location wise, I had difficulties finding the resort, even with GPS coordinates as the road leading to the resort has not been updated and is within a residential area. Good thing is the building is pretty tall, so you can spot it from afar. In terms of food options, there are 1-2 small restaurants within walking distance of the resort but don't expect too much. We drove out for everything else. There is gantried parking on the 3rd floor and there is a security guard there too but I noticed that the lifts from the carpark permitted access to my room level without card access (even though there are signs).
Note that the balcony door lock is a simple snap lock - children can unlock it quite easily. Rooms are large, clean. Useful for families. There is a kitchen area - handy for warming up meals. My only grouse is the bathroom floods once someone takes a shower (design fault). Bathroom lighting is dark. Pillows are very average. Swimming pool area is nice - windy, clean, scenic. Breakfast is ok - sufficient for a meal. We ordered in for a meal and the wait was 30 minutes - all things considered, i would say it is a fair as I do not see this as a high-end hotel. Housekeeping is ok too. Towels, sheets are clean.
