“Needs updating, but a nice place to unwind”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The hotel needs a bit of updating (new carpet, paint, etc), but the rooms are very comfortable. There is free wi-fi in the lobby, but you have to pay for it in your room, which is not something a "four star" resort should do. The breakfast buffet is excellent - with a large variety of foods (including Indian food) and an egg station. The staff is helpful and pleasant. There is not a beach area to swim on, but the pool is nice. A taxi ride into the town center and beach area is not too expensive and the hotel does offer free shuttle rides in at various times. If you do not need the bars or beach right at your front door, than this hotel is a good value. The spa is another story. DO NOT USE THEM. Treat yourself to a spa in town. They are cheaper and much nicer.

Poor excuse for a resort hotel ... service was horrible ...food was horrible ... rooms need total reworking ... pricey ! ... Only saving grace was the sea view and quietness...
as with other resort world hotels , they share the same negative qualities...

Room Tip: Sea View!or sleep on the deck! opt for the superior room with bigger balconies

The seaside view from our room was spectacular. The buffet breakfast and a la carte dinner was eclectic. Although the rooms and facilities are a bit tired and small. Value for money. The private beach was less than what we had expected.

I booked a garden view room. It is average hotel with average service. when I checked in, I found that the room has no balcony despite it is mentioned in their website that garden view rooms have balcony. When I asked from hotel receptionist, he told me that you need to ask about balcony in advance. so don't forget to ask balcony in advance of course if you want. Be careful about this hotel does not have any private beach, so go for another hotel if you want to have beach besides your hotel. There is a beach near hotel but you need to walk a few minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony if you want to book garden view room.

I booked 2rooms for my family, and i managed to get the family rooms although i need to wait until 4.30 to check in. Its myby caused by the late check out guest so i don't really mind about it. Igot the pool view room, which was super nice. The pool for kids was really good, my daughter spend lots of great time playing there.overall, the hotel is great.

I have recently visited LANGKAWI twice with my Indian groups and found the hotel to be a very good one. I stayed 02 nights each visit. The only drawback of the hotel is its room services / house keeping. The front office staff is very helpful. I would strongly recommend this hotel to someone who is looking for a great location and relaxation.

Stayed here for the weekend and attending a course. The food offered during tea break is sumptious and they offered milo drinks from beverage machine which was great. The hotel is fine and the rooms have installed ceiling fans and airconds so you can make a choice. If you want to have a quiet place to relax, this is the place to be in.
