“Closed but Open on the internet!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Two days before the actual visit to the resort, t the resort staff could still correspond with very standard answers giving the impression that the hotel was still in operation through at least 3 exchanges of emails without informing that the resort had already been closed for a while!

“Amazing beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Clean beach with crystal clear water. This is a "must visit" place if you would love some privacy at the beach since there is very less people who comes here.

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great place to relax. Couple of restaurants serving nice seafood, but main attraction is the serenity of the place and great beach

“get in before 5.50pm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Tanjung Rhu resort control the road. We got to the checkpoint at 6pm and were told we had to be in by 5.30pm. We came back next day at 5.20pm and were let in no problem. The problem is you are basically going for the sunset- which is usually around 7.30pm- at 7pm the security guard from the Tanjung Rhu resort starts ushering you off the beach- why they can't wait till after the sunset i don't know. We did manage to see it as we slowly made like we were leaving the beach. The guard is only doing his job and he's quite polite so if you make it look like you are making your way off the beach you can just about get to see it before you get turfed out. Sun set was lovely but you don't see it go right to the water as it looks like in a lot of the publicity shots. There is land in the way-i think the only way to see it properly would be to climb up to the nearby lighthouse

“White sand, blue water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

... and that's about it. This beach is more or less privately owned by the major hotels here, and only a small patch is available to visit. There are very few people around, and not much to do, except parasailing.
