We joined their dinner & spa package to stay in Aryani for 3-night. Package included set dinner for all the nights stayed and one traditional massage & bath.
The resort is situated near beach coast and 40mins from down-town. If you do not have a car, what to do is to stay in the resort. But that's enough, you need not go out if you are looking for relaxation.
The resort has only 20+ Malay-styled rooms. So, you can imagine not many guests at all. We stayed in a deluxe room, facing the swimming pool. Room is properly decorated, but the shower is weak. Water is sometimes very hot, sometimes very cold.
Swimming pool, again not many guests. We can always occupy it. There is a beach club, suppose selling drinks and sandwiches. But no staff on duty! You can call the restaurant to arrange foods to be delivered instead. Funny! Anyway, the beach club is a nice place if you want to take pictures.
Our package included dinner, we tried Malay food and western food. We chose to have our dinner in the fine-dining room, because of air-conditioning. There are four tables in fining-dining room. But during the 3 nights, only we had dinner there, no other guest. That's good, a private and well served dinner time! About the foods, that's really fantastic, especially the Malay food. This set dinner is a four-course dinner. All courses are set by the chef. Our only choice is Malay or western. But who cares? We believed the chef would choose the best to us. I really like the chef and the staff there. You can easily spend 2-hour to enjoy this dinner.
We tried their spa. Well, not recommended actually. I think massagists are outsourced. The technique of the massagists are not really great. Also, the flower bath is too opened to me. Although we can see beach & sea from the bath, what about someone passing the beach?
There is wifi connection throughout the resort and wired network in room. But connection is not very stable. Please expect some interruption when connecting to internet.
To conclude, this resort is still recommended if you are looking for quiet, relax vacation. But just escape from the spa!
