My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 4 days 3 nights under the resident's package where it is full board. The location, room and activities were great. The spa service is HEAVENLY. We wished we could afford the time and money for more spa treatments.. Maybe next time :)
However, having visited Tanjong Jara Resort which is also under the YTL management, we felt that this place fall short of the glory of the name as YTL resort. This is mainly due to its quality of food and selection. The meal menu is always the same. Imagine 3 lunches and 3 dinners from the same menu with limited choice! And to make it worse, it didnt taste nice :( for a very famous dish such as soft shell crab, It tasted like cucur tepung (flour fritters) :( I hope that the management can look into this seriously and improve. Hope to see some improvements the next time we are back. We missed Chef Anne from Tanjung Jara Resort! Please hire someone of the same calibre.
