  • 2.0.Poor

    The property is in a poor condition. The hot water in our room was muddy and green in color and the staff couldn’t do anything over two days after after several complaints. They tried to find silly excuses to evade the problem. The balcony was dirty . For a five star hotel with high rate, this has been a terrible experience. The director of operations finally appeared and apologized and offered a complimentary room for future stay. Not sure it is worth another try.

  • 8.0.Very good

    This hotel can only be described as one of a kind! Total opulence and designed to be so with all the trimmings you would expect from Brunei. The only thing that was strange was the fact that the entire hotel was completely empty! Staff were great, the grounds were amazing, but no people. Not all of the restaurants were open, but we did manage to find some basic meals. With the help of the front desk we arranged for a car and driver and toured around the small county in comfort. But no people? Maybe it was the time of year? This resort did provide a great base for our limited time in Brunei and if we ever go back again, we would stay here again. Hopefully the resort is a little more busy?

    Utter disappointment

    I had great expectations for this hotel and they fell flat because despite the staff being very friendly, the hotel has no soul (pretty much like Brunei itself), and in addition to that with the prices one pays you would expect outstanding service which is NOWHERE. E.g. turn down service? a scale in the bathroom BUT even more importantly warning the guest near the beach that the place is infested with sand flies (three days after i am still enduring the itchiness of the bites all over me). The limited internet is also a nuisance and the shuttle to BSB and the airport should be free considering the remoteness of the hotel. Tours and the shops should be linked to the room account considering there is no ATM in the premises. In the positive side i did love the free little sweat treats included in my room service orders.
