Having just stayed here for the marathon I can say that it was good accommodation.
I was collected from airport & taken to hotel in air con hotel van. Entrance to Villa Malay was clearly marked and well lit.
My room Lotus 8 was near to the open-air restaurant which meant I heard some breakfast setup noise but not too bad.
One of the recommendations for my room and the other rooms which have the same curtains - I found it difficult to sleep with the sheer curtains letting light in from the outside verandah and footpath lighting as well as morning light. I like to sleep in darkness, however with sheer curtains & no shutters like on majority of the other rooms (& my bathroom), sleeping was difficult. The bed itself was very comfortable. In contrast the bathroom lighting was dull & as mentioned in previous posts too dark. The staff were well-intentioned although at times a bit vague. My in-room massage was nice both times, however has room for improvement.
The pool area is small but nice and even though there didn't appear to be enough lounges it also wasn't inadequate as I got a lounge when I wanted a dip.
Food & drink service was prompt either around pool, at bar or in room.
I had the buffet breakfasts & especially for the marathon runners breakfast was put on at 5am which was greatly appreciated & a commendable effort by Villa Malay.
Overall I enjoyed my stay & would stay with them again.
