“Pirates above the clouds”
Reviewed May 26, 2008

The food suxx.... nice view but no homely touch u usually see in malaysian resorts. cut throat prices for the transportation from kiansom to the resort. manager, i believe named leonard is no where to be seen. nothing much to do above there eventhough in our teleconversation with the manager says so many stuffs. journey up is treacherous especially during the rainy season. dangerous. frenly staffs, but prepare to wait at least 45min to an hour to get ur food served. night time, there is nothing much to do unless you can just stare at the view of kk town from there for hours.
conclusion, highway to hell is much better and more exciting if u compare it with kasih sayang resort.

One of the worst vacations I've been.

Boutique resort is an overstatement. "Inn" or "hostel" is more like it. What makes it worse is that it's in the middle of nowhere, so you're trapped, or be ready to pay expensive taxis / hotel transfers.

Rooms: okay, typical room. generally clean but be prepared to be infested with moths if you keep lights open. Applicances substandard, hairdryer doesnt blow strong enough, heater only works if water power kept at a minimum

Service: Receptionist is nice as well as the cook. But lacks ability to solve issues and does not know their area well. General Manager, Recreations Manager, absolutely has no concept of service. Recreations manager disappeared the whole day after committing the day before that he will be there by 10am to brief us on what to do. Ended up wasting time from morning til 2pm, and when we complained to the Recreations Manager, he just shrugged us off.

Owner brought 20+ friends for dinner, but with only one chef, me and my friend (the only two guests paying for rooms that night) ended up waiting for ONE HOUR for our meal.

Reservations office: While negotiating for transfer and room price, attempted to pull a fast one. We have 30% off discount. She was insisting me and my friend take two single rooms. Then I asked about a two-bed, one room option. She tried to confuse us but in the end showed us that the one room and two room options are almost the same price. But How could it be? Apparently she deliberately didnt include the 30% off in the two-bed in one room option. If the hotel wasnt owned by my friend's friend (the one who went with me), I would have stayed in Shangri-La Rasa Ria (which is what I wanted)
