On the way there we thought we got lost driving through the narrow village roads but soon found out that the location was quite secluded – away from the mainroad and hustle and bustle of the city which was great. We were welcomed warmly by the young and friendly receptionist and was served with cold refreshing welcome drinks and hot keropok lekor at the lobby after registration.
The receptionist brought us to our room Chalet #9 which was facing the pool. She explained the amenities and facilities in our room and the surroundings to us, very kind and thoughtful of her to do so. I’ve stayed at other more expensive resorts before and they don’t give this personal touch and service like The Aryani. Our room is reasonably clean, very spacious and roomy with Malay décor influences. The extra-large King sized bed was very comfortable for me, my husband and daughter to sleep in. There is a fan, air-cond, TV, telephone, torchlight, electric mosquito repellent, toiletries, hair-dryer and an outdoor bathtub!
After settling down in our room, we went out to explore the surroundings. My daughter loves the garden and space. The surroundings and landscape looks tired and run-down and really need some maintenance and TLC. But the pool works well – we enjoyed swimming in the pool that evening. The entire atmosphere was very quiet and peaceful.
At night, we ate at the Serai Restaurant. We ordered the ‘Putri Adruja’ Wild Mushroom Smoothie Soup, ‘Ratu Mariam’ Char-Grilled Beef and ‘Pura’ Pastamania. Food was very delicious and tasty and the portion was big. Breakfast in the morning is served as à la carte set.
I requested for 2 extra pillows from the reception that night and the same helpful receptionist sent it to my room without any charges. I have nothing much to complain about The Aryani. Yes, the surroundings and landscape need maintenance but for me, the memorable service and Malaysian hospitality shown by the staff is wonderful. We stayed for only 1 night but wished we could stay longer. Would we stay in The Aryani again in the future? Definitely!
