THE RESORT IS BELOW EXPECTATION for an accomodation called "resort&spa"! and its very OVERPRICE!! i hate the bathroom because its a bit smelly and the water is not working untill 2 hours! and the room design is a bit odd and OLD (the bathroom is almost bigger than the bedroom)
Its WAY better you stay in hotel at capital city Pangkalpinang and go to a daily trip to this beach. (only 30km without any traffic jam, about 45 minutes) I also not reccomend the restaurant in the hotel, i think, its better u search for restaurant in downtown Sungailiat, my fave is "Paws Kopitiam". But if u dont mind with overprice meals, its ok to eat in the hotel's restaurant.
The beach itself is AWESOME, many places to take a beautiful picture (i feel like a great photographer here because all my picture was AMAZING) and good for chilling, or have a romantic conversation with ur date.
you can stroll around Parai and will find beach called MATRAS beach (about 700-1km near Parai), its very tranquil and quiet with white sandy beach and natural coconut tree, but dont go there at weekend because it so full with local tourist! I also find a secret gateway nearby Parai, ;-) its a fishermans boat parking spot, its a lagoon with a beautiful rocks around it. i dont know whats the name of that lagoon untill now.More
