We stayed at Temple Tree because it came highly recommended and, while it is a nice place with very pretty heritage rooms, it is certainly not at any level somewhere we would recommend. The service is less than average (surly and inattentive) and the place is badly kept up with pretty poor overall standards. The value for money is appalling - while we have no problem paying for good quality, paying RM40+ for a rocket and feta salad is ridiculous - and more expensive than any other five star hotel on the island. We own an island resort in malaysia ourselves and know exactly what the costs are so this level of pricing is frankly laughable. The staff are disinterested at best - at lunch the restaurant is filled with volunteers from the animal sanctuary next door (which while a lovely idea is less than ideal in practice) eating free food, and it is hard for paying guests to attract attention. At night they offer a free cocktail and snack between 7 and 8 but show up at 7.45 and the surly lady behind the bar will ignore you till 8.05 and then tell you you're too late. This is a lovely idea and the resort itself is beautiful but sadly, the execution leaves very much to be desired.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more less
