I spent my Deepavali public holiday weekend with my family at this resort, it was less than an hour drive from JB, so the traveling process is not really tiring (for those from JB) using the Senai-Desaru expressway.
The resort was huge with many blocks within the compound. I booked a one bedroom suite for my family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) with an extra bed. The room is designed with bedroom at higher floor and lower floor is the living room with a small dining table and a kitchenette. A microwave and mini fridge are available. The furniture looks a little aged but overall the room is clean and cosy with air conditioner at both upper and lower floors. My room is at the highest floor, the view was good with a little seaview from the balcony. TV channels are acceptable with CNN, Nat Geo, Carton Network and a few other cable stations, plus all local and Singapore channels. However, there is NO WIFI in the room, wifi is only available free for hotel guest at hotel lobby area. Also, another drawback is the low pressure in the water shower in the bathroom resulting longer time for shower and unsatisfying shower experience though the water temperature is all right.
The beach is long with a number of activities offered by the resort. The sand is not that white and fine, due to it long and wide beach area, it is good for sandcastle building by the children. My kids enjoyed it most! However, the water is not crystal clear and dirty, don't ever let your kids play with the water.
The breakfast experience was terrible...perhaps due to the large crowd during the public holiday weekend, long queue everywhere for food. I believe due to mass cooking for the crowd, the food quality is not up to a 4-star resort standard. The beverage i.e. coffee and juices are very diluted.
If you wish to have seafood dinner, I suggest you drive to Sungai Rengit (or Pangerang) area for very good, fresh and reasonable priced seafood dinner, which is about 25-30 km away down south from the resort.
There is a gym, 2 swimming pools and a water theme park in the resort specially for the kids. You need to purchase entry ticket (RM5/person) for the additional heads in your room (free for 2 adults per room only). Kids would enjoy very much at the water park, but water is not clean as many tends to jump into the water with clothes on.
Overall, this is resort is good for family vacation with kids for a weekend breakawy. The town itself has no other activities and entertainment. It is a quiet and sleep town!
If you book 1 bedroom suite, choose room at high floor and avoid the blocks facing water park if you...
