    Living room and bed room was not spacious as we thought. However, it is a very quiet and relaxing place that we really like it. Close to shopping centre is another key. But it doesn't provide enough space for cooking.More

    Restaurants at Salt less than 10 min drive, you can hire cycles at Santai if your keen, however Spice Den at Santai is excellent and I recommend it over anything at Salt. Beach is only a 3-5 min walk away.
