This was my 3rd stay with the Pulai Group and the second one at Pulai Springs resort.
I had booked a weekend wedding reception in June 2013 (obviously the booking would have been done in end 2012) and had booked additional stays for our family members and ourselves. We also asked the resort for contacts to ferry guests from Singapore to the resort which they did.
As part of the package, the resort threw in a free stay for the night after the ceremony and a return stay which we could choose either Pulai Springs or Pulai Desaru resort. We stayed 2 nights.
The rooms at Pulai Springs are spacious. We stayed at the Cinta Ayu suites side instead of upgrading to the Anugraha suites to be close to our guests. This area of the resort is the "older" one. We had a single bedroom suite and a double bedroom one for our guests.
Furnishings wise, you can tell that it the decor is a little dated but very good quality. The single bedroom suite is bigger than a new studio apartment in Singapore. It had a good sized walk in wardrobe and dressing area, a bedroom and a separate living room and kitchenette with a full sized fridge and a small balcony.
The 2 bedroom suite had 1 bedroom with a double bed and 1 bedroom with 2 single beds that is separated by a living area. The TV channels were alright, not too many selections but acceptable and there was wifi. However, it was a bit slow and you needed to get the password from the reception.
Unfortunately, it was hazy while we were here and this was not in any way the resorts fault. Our guests had planned to play golf while they were here and they could not do very much. Bookings for golf is a short walk away. We couldn't take too many photos although there was a lovely green area because of the haze.
The things that bugged me a little was that our room had scribbles all over the wall and the housekeeping had not managed to spot it and clean it off. I called housekeeping and they came in within 30 minutes but did not manage to clean off the scribbles. The resort should have fixed this before letting other guests stay. The standards of cleaning could also be improved.
In terms of the wedding reception. This particular resort provides a decorated wedding buggy as the ballroom is quite a distance away from the rooms. It was quite an entrance to literally drive up to the door in a red wedding golf buggy decorated with purple flowers. Changing dresses is quite amusing as I had to hop back into the golf buggy to the room, change, hop back into the buggy and drive back to the hall for the second march in. :P This is not suitable for brides with many changes of clothes.
All in all, it was a very interesting wedding reception and stay at Pulai Springs. Also, the site is very popular for weddings. There were 2 other receptions at the resort on the same day.
