We recently spent six days in this little bit of paradise having been many times before.We were informed by email several times about the refurbishment but decided it was still worth a visit and generally were not disappointed. It is in a fabulous position,always clean and the service is good although maybe not as sparkling on this occasion.Considering the rebuilding the restaurants cope well but with limited kitchen facilities the fine dining menu is limited.We did ask for lobster in advance (not on the menu) and the following evening it was superbly presented in a most salubrious beach pavilion tent complete with the fine linen tablecloths,fine china,excellent french champagne and perfect service.Maybe we are easily satisfied but I thought that evening would be difficult to surpass anywhere.
The rooms are always spotless and well serviced twice daily and in someways are ageing but a pleasant change from city glitzy designer hotels with small rooms and no personality.
For those looking for the high life,motorised water sports and organised sightseeing it is not for you.But if you want complete relaxation in a beautiful setting with great food and generally excellent and always friendly service, Tanjung Rhu is for you.We organised to hire a car at short notice for a day through the concierge.No problem.He rang ahead to confirm the cable car was operational.No problem.Hired mountain bikes for a ride to local waterfalls.No problem.Organized a private sunset cruise.No problem.Spent two afternoons of superb sailing on a Hobiecat in a most picturesque bay. No problem.Organised the complimentary transfer to the airport with perfect timing.No problem.
We love this resort and its ambience and of course will be back in the future to savour the upgraded rooms and restaurants.
