Rooms are incredibly spacious and well appointed.
Amazing setting and location. Atmosphere a bit "precious" eg. the gong being struck to signal your arrival and departure My favourite place to stay in Malaysia

AMAZING experience, great resort!
We spent two days with my parents in the resort. Overall it was a fantastic experience. We arrived hot and sweaty, but was greeted with great service and refreshment at check in. The rooms were spacious and the view was fantastic. All the staff at the resort were friendly and helpful. At the pool, cold water with lemon and towers were offered every 15 mins (fantastic for a hot day). The hotel is clean, the beach is cleaned daily and the garden is maintained well. We received free smoothies and snacks in our room. The hotel staff also made an effort to try to make my parent's 40th anniversary special with a complimentary cake. It's the small touches that counts and we are really impressed with the management of the resort. Highly recommended for everyone, either for family holiday or for a romantic relaxing retreat. We will be back.

Relaxed Luxury
Just spent 3 days at this wonderful resort, and loved the laid back style whilst no compromise on service. The lovely staff were all very friendly and always happy to assist. Our Anjung room was wonderful with view of the golden beach, and outside private bath. The current Haze weather over Malaysia dampened our sunbathing plans somewhat but although the resort is pretty remote there was plenty to do, including a nighttime trip to see baby turtles released into the Water by the local conservation team, which will be lifelong memory. The food was wonderful, and we especially recommend the steamboat dining which was great fun.

Beautiful expensive resort.
Stayed one night as a stop over. This is a beautiful resort with fabulous surrounding and excellent spacious comfortable accommodation. The food in the Asean restaurant is exquisite, and the breakfast was fantastic with an array of choices being offered. The other restaurant, the Nelayan is comparatively expensive, which can also be said of this resort.
