My girlfriend and I booked a 3days 2nights stay at resort using groupons vouchers. Upon reaching the lobby, we were greeted by cheerful personnel and surprised by the wonderful and classic design of the resort. While we were checking in, we were given a complimentary upgrade to the Tirta Wing, Premier room. The room was fantastic and have a very modern and chic design as compared to the accomodation at the Riani Wing. However our room was right till the end and was quite far from the lobby, which did not fufil my requirement of being near to the lobby as I had requested in my email.
After unloading our stuff in the room, we proceed to have our lunch at the Taming Sara Cafe. We ordered the Ayam Pentet and the Gado Gado. Food was fantastic and presentable. One thing that requires improvement is the number of flies in the cafe. My girlfriend and I was spending a quarter of our time fanning our hands to keep the flies away. Day one for us was relaxing as we explored the resort and took some great pictures. However, we thought the swimming pool is ready at the Riani Wing as the website said it is close for rennovation till 23rdJuly2010. But, we went on 25thJuly2010 and it is still renovating. This indeed dampen our mood to try out the new swimming pool.
On day two, we went to Nagoya Hill shopping centre by transport given by Isabella Massage House. Spend almost the whole day there and went back to our resort at about 8pm.
On day three, we check out went to have our lunch at Taming Sari Cafe. However, we exceed the time and miss the bus to Nonsapura Ferry Terminal. We told the staff at the lobby and he initially told us that we have no choice but to get a taxi. However in the end, he drove a van over and offer us a ride to the terminal, which both my girlfriend and I appreciate it. However, he did not seems quite happy to do so as he did not reply us after we said thank you to him. Nevertheless, we did appreciate he took the trouble to do so.
On the whole, the resort design and its facilities are one of the best I have visited. Improvements can be make to bring down the pests and insects level in the resort. Food was superb and value for money definetly.
