This was our 1st time at GrandLexis. It didn't disappoint. I came here with the expectation of receiving the same kind of service I would expect from any resorts/hotels in Malaysia. You know what I mean, the kind of lukewarm feeling like how they could treat their guests better, like having expections (not a very high one at that) and then sorely disappointed at the end of the day. Also, I was expecting the interior to be run down already by now, poorly maintained as in most cases for hotels/resorts in M'sia.
HOWEVER, Grand Lexis changed all that. From 18-20 May, 3 ladies stayed at Garden Pool Villa Room 219 for a good, wholesome, total relaxing 3D/2N.
Right from the time we checked-in (checking-in was a breeze, contrary to what other reviewers mentioned. We checked-in after 4pm) until the day we checked-out, we left with nothing but good impressions.
Shortly after checking-in, we requested for additional towels, toiletries and ironing board.
Our request was granted within a short time.
The hospitality was nothing but pleasant. All staffs, from the Managers to housekeeping staffs, they were always welcoming and will greet you.
Now, let's talk about the villa. Environment was quiet without the feeling of being isolated.
The only thing was, the pool water was harsh cold when we first took our dip inside. It gets better subsequently though it was still cold. Cable TV could provide more channels I suggest cos right now they are limited. No HBO, no MTV.
Breakfast was great, no complaints there. We love the scented lemongrass candle on the breakfast table, it makes a nice calming setting.
We opted to dine it at Duyung on Sunday night, expecting a buffet spread. But sadly, Grand Lexis do not offer buffet on Sunday evenings. We were quite disappointed, having settled for ala-carte fried rice, fried yellow noodle (mee goreng lukut) and fried kway teow) which we could have just ordered via room-service. The menu selections at Duyung were exactly the same as the room service menu. Grand Lexis should tweak and add variety to the menu for diners at the restaurant if they don't offer buffet.
Nasi goreng was more worthy at RM26 with sate, fried chicken wing and wanton as the side.
The same couldn't be said for our simple cooked-up fried kway teow and fried noodle - at the same price of RM26. It's totally high priced.
So well, you have it. Except for those few glitches, overall i give Grand Lexis a thumbs-up. It is a place where I will definitely opt to go for a short getaway. The hospitality and great service from the staffs throughout our stay totally made up for it.
Oh yes! We love our bed! 2 king sized, wrapped with super comfy, crispy bedlinens and cushy pillows. This is powerfull stuff people! Aside from the pool, which we thoroughly enjoy our dipping sessions, we spent most of our time in bed. :) Day felt like night when we were in the villa.
