(Stayed for the second week of the June-July school holidays)
The holiday was wonderful. At the start there was a hiccup when I accidentally ran my carry on suitcase over a platter that was left out the front of a room - milk went everywhere. Aside from that, everything else was perfect. The views were the best, except when the rain came by.
The room was a little bit smaller than I expected (and what I am used to) and at the same time during the day there were renovators working on renovations nearby. The pool was great but when you swam close to the motor room a constant high pitched sound can be heard, as well as that there was not enough shade so I was prone to sunburn (need a tan anyway).
In terms of dining, I broke away from my 'picky eater' self and actually tried some other stuff which meant I fell in love with the chicken liver pâté and actually went out of my way to have it a few more times for the last few days I was there. Breeze was sensational and the entertainment was great (keep singing ladies!) and I especially enjoyed the mini burgers. Seasonal Tastes Restaurant also provided great food and I especially enjoyed the constant service from the same waiter, it seemed there is usually enough staff for every table to have personalised service.
The service all around was great, there were barely any staff but at the same time if you needed help with something or ordered some food then BAM!, one pops out of nowhere and you are instantly satisfied.
I have been here once before (when I was around 12) and can easily say that both times have been some of the best times of my life. The small number of other guests added to the exclusivity of the resort which is what I also liked.
I have been to other 5* resorts and hotels, locally and on an international scale so the benchmark would be placed pretty high and I can say this resort has joined the likes of The Langham and the Shangri-La Rasa Sayang Resort. Not only have I enjoyed this stay but my parents have too so this place is definitely on our list to come back to next time, maybe even hop into town and get more involved in the local culture.
