This place is near perfect for a young couple like us to get away from it all and just relax. All the ingredients were there: absolutely beautiful location, great service from the always friendly, always smiling, and always thoughtful staff, and some of the best food and drinks we have had in all of Malaysia. We stayed in a Bayu Senja room with view of the beach and the sea and it was large and stylish, wooden theme, slightly worn perhaps but I am not sure if this is a bad thing as it wouldn't fit the resort to have ultra modern, business style rooms. Either way the room and bed was very comfortable, and was cleaned and made up well each day.
The manager, Enzo, welcomed us with drinks on the first day of our stay and was always up for a chat whenever we ran into him on the resort grounds - as was the other staff. We did the mangrove tour with the excellent Fendi who showed us the ins & outs of the wonderful area around the resort.
There were really no disappointments as we spent our days lounging at the beach or any one of the excellent pools, and eating as much as we could (the all-inclusive package is a must!), but I guess one thing I could say is that there are currently renovations going on at the resort, which do have some impact on your stay. It's really only at one side of the resort though and there's a plus side to it as well. There was no noise in the rooms.
We were sad to leave the Tanjung Rhu after 5 days (too short!) and would love to return some day. Wholly recommended!
