Had 3 rooms booked for a family getaway. The hotel building itself has been around for ages and so has all the rooms. In our rooms, the living area/bedroom has been spruced up but the toilet showed signs of ageing (perfectly functional though).

I've been there to accompany my husband, so we had one night stay at this hotel. My review about this place is about average. From far (entrance) it looks gloomy, maybe because of the color of the paint used on the wall, but then when we reached at the lobby it just look nice and things was in order. The...

We checked-in into a Junior Suite Room and was blown away by the beautifully choreographed room design. The hotel is only 5 levels, so we choose the high floor so that from the room balcony we could see the awesome seaview of the south China Sea.

All bedrooms facing the sea. The room is quite big and the bathroom has a bathtub. The resort is located quite a distance from the nearest...

We visited the resort in the week post CNY for a weekend getaway with family and friends. Booked the place through Asia Travel. It's just about 1.5 hours after crossing the Malaysia border so very comfortable . The resort is compact but the views from the rooms were fabulous with the pool and the sea in striking distance. Rooms were...
