We absolutely loved this place. From the moment of our arrival at the airport where we were picked up in an air conditioned minibus, to our last day when we were offered very late check out and use of all facilities at no extra cost , we felt like we were in heaven. To wake up in the morning and look along the huge deserted beach and across to the islands and see no other sign of habitation was amazing.
All the staff were delightful,and we were acknowledged with smiles and greetings at all times.,and they appeared to be genuinely keen that we should have a good stay. The manager, apparently fairly newly appointed at the time we visited, was frequently seen around the grounds, which were beautifully maintained by a small army of gardeners.
Our room overlooked the garden and pool on the spa side of the complex, and was huge. When we arrived , the member of staff who showed us up was apologetic that the room had not been recently refurbished and told us that the hotel was about to embark on a programme of renovation, but to be truthful we had no complaints at all - everything was spotless, - huge bed , two balconies, two sitting areas, two tvs ,fruit ,chocolates , etc,etc. Maybe if we looked closely there was some slight scuffing on some of the woodwork., but to complain about that would be excessively picky.
It was very peaceful while we were there as the hotel was under half full, but we met some guests who had stayed before when the place was busy but they said it never felt even remotely crowded.
Food was geat with plenty of choice of venue and different dining styles. Room service was available at no extra cost.
It was our first time in Asia so our experience is limited although we have travelled extensively in Europe. We did visit another highly rated hotel on the island , but much preferred the setting and reaxed atmosphere at the Tanjung Rhu. We met many guests, of many nationalities who were on their second or third visits and we would love to return.
