We returned from this fabulous resort a few days ago and loved everything about it. The location and 1100 acres of gardens are beautiful. We stayed for 14 nights in a Baya Senja room where we looked out over the beach and nearby islands and I must admit, the view from the balcony was amazing!! We even saw a huge owl in a nearby tree one night!!
There are 3 pools but we spent all of the time around the adults only one, I can't understand why people with children have complained that they can't take their children to this pool because the other 2 pools are perfect for them and this one is 5 feet deep so I would be worried if I had a child at the adult pool. It was very quiet and we practically had the poolside to ourselves which was lovely. If you are feeling energetic then this pool is huge so you can swim to your hearts delight.
The room was huge and although they are a little tired looking it did not detract from the holiday at all as it was spotlessly clean. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and they all got to know our names after a day or so, nothing was too much trouble for them. We did a couple of mangrove trips with Zohar and he was so interesting, telling us about the various kinds of wildlife and plants etc.
The hotel restaurants are all very good. We ate in the Sands and Rhu more than the Saffron but the Saffron was good too, and we never had a bad meal at any time, the food was excellent. It is worth going all inclusive even though alcohol is extra.
We hired a car and drove round the island and also went up in the cable car where the views were unbelievable. There are also some shopping malls to visit if you want to.
Would I go back to the Tanjung Rhu...........Definately, and it will be interesting to see it after the refurb, so that will be my excuse to go back!!!! Not that I need one!!
