I had a week-end to kill in KL and selected this hotel for all the reasons mentioned in previous reviews (NOT close to city center, relaxing etc).
The grounds are fantastic with a golf-course and driving range right in front of the hotel.
If you can handle the typical Malaysian heat it's a great way to spend a day. There were multiple pools and good restaurants. There is full spa & massage faicility and a 'Pub' with a local band playing at week-ends. The hotel itself seems a little old (probably built in 70s) and the sound insulation between the rooms is not great but average.
If you just want to hang out for a few days near KL and don't want to deal with the heat and stress of downtown KL I would recommend this place. Taxi ride from airport is around 80RM and 40-50RM to downtown.
