Bought vouchers from deal.com.sg for a 1 night stay at KTM Resort on 10 June 12.
As there were 4 of us, we were given a family cottage with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a living/dining area and surrounded at the 4 sides by a veranda. Originally allocated cottage 511, which is on higher ground but with half its seaview blocked by trees. We paid a fee to 'upgrade' to cottage 501, which is nearer to the reception/pool area and has unobstructed seaview. Noticed cottage 501 has air-freshener in its bedrooms and bathrooms and skirtings on the beds unlike 511. Not sure if it was housekeeing oversight or because we paid extra for these. There is a CRT TV in each room, though reception is not great. 2 pairs of slippers in each room at cottage 511 but missing in cottage 501 (probably another housekeeping oversight). The stove in the living area is not usable and the hot water kettle provided comes with a 2-pin plug but no 3-pin adapter provided in the cottage. Coffee/tea sachets and 4 cups provided.
Reasonably clean. 2 sets of toothbrush/paste in each bathroom. Shower gel/shampoo & soap. Towels reasonably clean. After a heavy rain on the morning of the 2nd day, I noticed many medium size red ants crawling all over the wash basin. It does not bother us much as the ants 'disappeared' after i started splashing water on them.
One of the bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other one comes with 2 single beds. I did not expect 5-star standard, but the beds are comfortable enough though I can see some very tiny red ants crawling on my side of the queen size bed and i was also bitten by some during the night.
The back door opens to a veranda that faces the sea. While sitting at the bench here, we could see Singapore, Marina area's skyline clearly. I love the seaview from here. Make us feel like we're at a 5-star resort, very relaxing. The stairs from here also leads to a mini garden. We spotted a slightly less than 1 metre monitor lizard sauntering pass the drain beside our veranda after the heavy rain.
The 'buffet' breakfast was nothing to shout about. Very basic but adequate (for the price we paid). The egg station has the freshest food as service staff cooks only upon request.The resort staff should do something about the houseflies though. As it was a Monday morning when we had our breakfast, the occupancy rate at the resort is low. I guess that was why they did not bother to light up the burner to keep the food warm. We had meals at the resort restaurant other than breaakfast. Quite tasty. Price not expensive at all though slightly more than what we paid for at the shopping mall.
Free shuttle service to & fro Nagoya Hill Mall provided with our package. The staff at the reception also volunteered to help me confirm my ferry booking back to Singapore the next morning when I was there to enquire about te check-out time.
Overall, we were quite satisfied with this deal & our stay at KTM Resort. Value for Money. Generally, the service staff are polite and go about their work with a smile.
