We were there during the rainy season in this part of Malaysia. There was a lot of wind, but no rain, and it was not too much crowded. The location and the beach are beautiful, but the hotel is a bit old, and you see and feel it in the rooms and some facilities. Some windows are rusty, and it... More

The hotel located in between Kemaman to Kertih in the small town called Kijal. Kijal is famous with lemang and deep fry squid and they have it all year long. The only appropriate Hotel in the area to organise any big events and Golf tournament. Despite a bit of rundown, the facilities and the golf course around add big plus... More

Superb location, on the beach, has all the amenities you need plus has a decent beach bar. The golf course is part of the hotel and also beach front. The cost to play golf was reasonable and can hire everything there. The hotel is ideal if staying in that area as it seems there are few other options in the... More
