“Great Location but not for the budget conscious”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

First of all, apologies to all as this review is long past overdue. However, I would just like to share with the viewers who may want to know more about the place.

The Pros about the place:
- Lovely place to relax. Nice sandy beach that stretches long and wide.
- Great for the family.
- Offers lots of activities for the children.
- A mini Zoo!

Cons:
- Food is readily available but can be a tad expensive. All currencies in charged in SGD/Rupiah.
- Buffet spread is just average. Really.
- Drive out to have a decent seafood dinner at The Kelong. Expensive.
- Night activities not that great unless you like to spend the night karaoke or just to have drinks. There's a bowling alley too but nothing to shout about.

My suggestion:
- Bring instant noodles by the packets. Hot water is readily available with the in-room kettle.

Waw, i miss to give this hotel a review, this is not our first time to stay... (can say 3 times already) a slightly out dated for sure as we stay on August, but no harm that we share our outdated review.

Sure.. Sure... we stay only a night here as this planned to be weekend gateaway, when we leave from Singapore, we saw dark cloud on the other side, and when we reach, its start drizzling and raining heavily soon after.
We ask the ATV guides, whether they still going, they said wait for the rain stop. we booked them straight away, after 2 hours, rain stop... and we went off to play ATV, 6 of us... we all prepared to get dirty...
and we did get what we want... MUD!!!!...stuck on the mud... all lovely dirty games :P, and it end when we swim on the sea (as one of the vehicle gear box is gave away, we drive and play hard)..... i think if you less adventure than this, don't go....

The welcoming, room and staff is as usual, fantastic... booking our ferry to go back to singapore on their front desk is fast.

the hotel, as it is... great.... breakfast great choice... lunch...? we eat outside, dinner, we also eat at the restaurant outside hotel, there's a free shuttle bus to go there.

Swimming pool, just lovely, we saw one big lizzard swimming with us too... hahahaha, don't be surprised, as nature calls, they want to soak on the pool when the weather is hot. No worries, staff is on the alert and that lizard is not bothering us....

Activities, there's an arcade room... ok... we all in 25-35.... we feel like kids... playing arcade there. :P
shooting range... tried that too... pony ride? don't think the horse can hold us... we're to fat and heavy, don't want to torture the animal....
archery? we didn't try as we more interested in the shooting....

will be back (of course, more than 3 times already)

This is our 3rd stay here. It is of reasonable priced and clean and the best of all with an amazing pool, available activities like elephant rides and show, rifle shooting, archery, bowling, etc. Although it is no Club Med, but enough to keep my 7 and 2 yrs old happy and occupied. We love the breakfast! They need to renew their furnishings and upholstery though, especially the lobby area. The fabric looks dirty, dusty and old. Wooden furnishings and the fabrics can look clean and nice with good maintenance. Otherwise, the service of the staffs are excellent. The housekeeping staff even made an elephant out of towels and when we got into our rooms our boys were amused by it. The check in staffs this time however, they don't smile and look like they don't want to be there. I am not only talking about the one who is serving me, but while we were sitting at the lobby waiting for our room, the rest gave the same attitude. And the food, so expensive. But, it is a good place for a short getaway from Singapore to have fun with the kids.

Returned trip to Nirwana Resort Hotel after staying here for the last 2 trips and thought the service and facilities was excellent with good memories during the last 2 stays. However, was extremely disappointed with the service this round. Night shift staffs at the reception have extremely bad attitude. Other staffs throughtout the hotel do not display a smiley and friendly face like they used to. Food choices within the resort compounds is limited, extremely pricey and not worth the money for the quality. Apart from that, all amenities and food places closes early, the place is just not as lively as it used to be. Resort is also always running out of towels and had to make me wait for an hour for clean towels to arrive!

Booked Deluxe Garden Room, the stay was marvellous! Spacious room, great view, well maintenance, friendly staff, amenities was convenient too!

Have recommended my friends to go there for a short getaway. You will never forget the experience you get back from the resort.

The beach is within walking distance, a pleasant seaview~

Will visit it again!

Room Tip: Opt for a higher level pool view. The view is magnificient!

The hotel made it very easy - from having someone meet guests as soon as they get off the ferry to explain the immigration procedures, to the return transfers to the hotel from the ferry terminal. The hotel was incredibly quiet when I arrived mid-week, a bit more lively on Friday, and manic by Sunday. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but to echo other comments, a bit dated. Breakfast was great - plentiful, tasty and lots of variety. Staff were great - if you're lucky enough to have Suyut as your room attendant, he may make animal "sculptures" with towels to entertain and keep you company - I got a peacock one day and an elephant another...an absolute touch of magic.

There is plenty of outdoor space for children, and the pool has a designated kids area. The Resort Centre is just up the road for the more adventurous.
