1. The room is okay. I think Their furniture are old and not well maintained 2. The overall view is breathtaking 3. The restaurant is very poor. Not much option for the food. I was order spaghetti bolognaise, and it taste bad. 4. They have this kinda infinite swimming pool. Very nice.

The view from our room is amazing. This place has the best view in tanjung bira. The staff were friendly and nice. I suggest the hotel to put border around private room. Some guest still didn't notice that there is a private area in there. Bed sheet, towel, and room cleanliness need some improvement

The Lobby: Felt like those in Santorini with white stones and blue decorations (But everything else does not, only that tiny lobby..). The Room: The resort room is divided into 2 sections, the front rooms facing the pool & sea and the back room facing the sea but not direct from the sea and difficult to reach. To get to... More

I was traveling with my brother and cousins last time and couldn't find any room for four people. There was only a room charged by USD 200 per night for 3, and since I have more people they charged me for it. This hotel doesn't provide any extra bed so it was so difficult for them to find one for... More

We went with friends there after making our dive trip nearby. The view is good and the rooms are fine. We just spend 2 days there so do not ask for too much. I think the staff will need more training so as to understand the guests specific needs better.

This hotel is not worth a penny. They ripped us off with their bad service and bad facilities. We were there on Idul Fitri for our honeymoon.

First the pros; fantastic location overlooking the bay, very peaceful and tranquil. Unfortunately this resort is let down by the cons namely inefficient and disorganised staff and a resort in need of maintenance. The prices (starting at 1.75M IDR) are five star but the service is not. Wifi is extremely weak and the rooms and amenities need a good clean.... More
