Just got back from a 5 night stay here which we booked at the seemingly bargainous rate of A$205 per night including breakfast and taxes.
I must disagree with the previous reviewer re his review of the pavilion room which we also had; I found the air conditioning to be excessively noisy and had to sleep with earplugs in though he was right about the bed linen; I found it unbearably scratchy and hard and had to sleep with a t-shirt and shorts on which is a pity in the tropics.
Some bath salts inside the empty bowl beside the lovely bath as well as some chamomile tea alongside or in lieu of one of the 3 standard teas would also be welcome.
The breakfasts were excellent and the service there and everywhere else was great.
We ate in the grill three times and 5 out of our 6 meals there were good. They also made me a lovely cake for my birthday which was a lovely touch.
There were a few maintenance issues while we were there; the most worrying of which was water leaking heavily through a downlight in the bathroom during a downpour. Nobody seemed that concerned when we reported it but maybe it was the language barrier? Many of the outdoor lights were not working on our last night there which was also a worry as there's a lot of steps and quite dangerous in the dark.
We found the electronics in the room exasperating at times and it's odd that charging our phones etc was so difficult in a newly built hotel; most of the sockets were under tables at ground level and none would fit our Australian plugs. Luckily we brought some adaptors with us.
We would return but maybe would book a suite room in the hope it may have less noisy A/C. The current advertised rate for these rooms would be ok but theres no way we'd pay too much more. Many of the other issues we experienced I'm sure will be sorted out.
The location and views from all parts of the hotel were breathtaking and the resort overall had a very pleasing elegant but relaxed feel.
