I am lucky that without any prior knowledge I booked the beach wing room, not ferringhi tower. But I should have taken a sea view room instead of hill view. Very relaxing and child friendly ambiance in the hotel. The beach is right at front. Good offers for IHG members while staying in the hotel.

The location is very good but the property is quiet old & the rooms quiet average. The services are average. The resort has a private beach & very easily accessible from the Hotel. The night shopping market is just in front of the hotel. Plenty of food options just next to the Hotel.
