We stayed for 4 nights in May in the Amin house. This is a beautiful and spacious traditional wooden Malay house. It has tea and coffee making facilities, a small fridge, and plenty of storage space. Here are a few gripes that may not matter to others and i think this is testimony to all the good things said about this place. Still, gripes they are for us: there was hardly any hot water for the shower and the shower itself reminded us of one you may see in a budget hostel (a hose attached to the wall). The pool area needs a little bit of tlc which Maria and her staff are actively working on, we noticed a foamy scum building up on the side of the pool which suggested it hadn't been cleaned that often and just after swimming my husband got sick - the two are probably not linked but we couldn't think of any other explanation. Now, back to the great things. Everyone talks about Maria's hospitality, and her ethos is very much "guests are family". Then there is the food! Wow, Zaid cooks a great meal, tailored to what you like and it is AMAZING. We didn't want to eat out anywhere else. If you want the clinical feel of a hotel, this is not the place for you. If, on the other hand you embrace the "home from home" idea, come stay here, it's beautiful.
