We stayed Tanjung Rhu for 5N/6D last mid this month (January 12-17, 2013), and we absolutely had a great time! The place was a paradise, not just because of it's natural beauty (beach and the view) but because of the great service and friendly/helpful staff, excellent food and the activities all throughout the resort (although we only did kayaking, archery and sunset cruise, we were too lazy to do other activities - this place will make you lazy coz the staff does everything for you). The staff were very accomodating, friendly and knowledgeble. They made us feel welcome and did their best to make sure we had a great time. The Filipino orchestra at night was amaziing! I couldn't imagine a better entertainment at night while having dinner at the Rhu or just chilling at the Reading Room. The music they played were a combination of lovely old and new songs, we really enjoyed listening to their music. I forgot the name of the 'all around music' guy but he is very good too. He usually is at the Sands for breakfast playing piano and in the afternoon he is at the Sands bar and pool for some acoustic (during the happy hour) and at night he plays at Saffron. The staff at Sands restaurant and the bar were really good! Amazing service and friendliness, same goes to The Rhu staff, Saffron, and the bar at the Family pool. Our only recommendation is to upgrade the room, and we are aware that this is already in progress. The resort were overall clean, the garden very much maintained. Just be mindful of the giant lizard that 'normally' walks around, it freaked me out when we were at the Sands and I saw it walking towards me! My partner forgot to tell me about this so not the resorts fault and apparently it doesn't bite or run after you. Otherwise, perfect place to relax, enjoy quality time with partner or family and get fat!
