After taking a 45-minute cab ride from the Airport (69 MR), we arrived at this hotel which is at the beach. Very relaxing resting on the couch and we took a good nap with the breeze and the sound of the wave, preceded by a late lunch which was not very impressive. However, The breakfast has great selection, Chinese, Malaysian, Western, and much more. Dinner at the Rasa Wing (The Grill) was not bad, but relatively expensive. Apparently very popular in this restaurant as we could not get the first sitting which had been fully booked. Ambience was better than the food. My order of fish came lukewarm.
We walked to the nearby Night Market (the Long Beach Market) for a most hearty dinner with incredible great values and choices: the Shrimp noodles, the Satay, and the fried oyster are very delicious. A variety of local fruit drinks that must be tried.
The gym is good, and the pool is small but at the beach. Also a popular hotel for wedding and corporate functions. In short, you pay for what you get for this hotel.
Free shuttle to the Old Town on a comfortable bus. Lunch
