We booked 2 nights at the Bayleaf, first night in the deluxe room and the 2nd night in the premier room. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly at the reception informing us that we have a free upgrade to the premier room for the first night so we didnt have to hassle about the 2nd day to transfer the rooms.
The hotel does not have a gym or swimming pool but its restaurant, 9spoons serves very decent western and local food. We were however, slightly disappointed by the much raved Sky Deck because the lighting were too dim (couldnt quite read the menu and see our food) and having missed the sunset ( we went there past 7pm), the night view was decent.
Service in general, is very good. Staff are politely, especially Michelle (from reception). One thing to improve on perhaps would be the wireless network and the daily login / password needed. Perhaps it would be better to issue the customer 1 login / password that could be used throughout their entire stay. I would imagine people staying for 3-4 days would find it a hassle to have to ask for a new login every day.
