The rooms were very spacious and beautiful, but the furniture was really old and had an awful odor. The blinds had huge stains on them that were really gross! Each day... More

Right from the time of stepping foot at Pandanus, from entry to exit was just a splendid experience. Accommodated with modern amenities, friendly staff, breathtaking serenity for eye-candy and the right kind of feels for a coastal lover.

Very good property with fantastic beach front and swimming pool. Although rain did play spoilsport but still it was heavenly to laze around in the evening overlooking the ocean and sipping away cans of beer! Clean rooms with great buffet spread. Highly recommendable.
