Never have I stayed in such a luxurious and tranquil as all the others that I have stayed at before. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed my every minute of stay in this villa, Pelican Hill Resort. On reaching our destination, I was completely blown away by the lush greenery in the gardens surrounding the villas and the beautifully-furnished and cosy room.
Pelican Hill Resort is strategically-located along the coast in Newport Beach and it is a perfect place for you to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Besides enjoying the state-of-the-art facilities provided, you can take a short walk to the soft sandy beach for a stroll to enjoy the breathtaking scenery or you can take a leisurely walk around the huge landscaped surroundings where you can just enjoy nature’s beauty.
I stayed in one of the 847 square feet single storey bungalow room with a view terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean for 2 nights. I must admit I had a really sound sleep those two nights. I particularly liked the fireplace which kept us warm (I was there in winter) especially as, being a Malaysian from a tropical country, I felt pretty cold as I rarely travelled in winter. Besides, we were treated to a wide variety of channels on the television. In addition, we had free Wi-Fi service. Not all resorts in the upper range too provide free Internet services.
The room was very clean as it was still quite a new resort and was well-maintained. I also liked the design of the bathroom. It was very spacious and well-designed. You can take a quick shower or if time is on your side, you can enjoy the bathtub. Beside the bathtub is a window from which you can look into the room and also admire magnificent scenery of the lovely ocean outside the room. This was another unique feature of the room which caught my attention.
Finally, the service provided by the staff of the resort was first-class. They attended to your every need and were most polite and efficient. I also ordered the food on the menu there and it was quite delicious. I wouldn’t hesitate if I got another opportunity to return to this splendid place again but only if I have a lot of money because it cost quite an exorbitant sum to stay here. However, if you really want to have an enjoyable, relaxing and peaceful vacation without worrying about a budget, Pelican Hill Resort may just be the right place for you.
