We stayed 2 nights at the resort world. Pretty much the only hotel in the area of this sort. I heard from colleagues that the golf course is rather special although I didn't use it. There are plenty of facilities both at the hotel and by the near shop parades. The hotel is alcohol free, which I found fine as...

Stayed here once in 2015 and once last month (2017) Lovely location with a lovely beach, golf course, tennis court, jet skis etc. The room was clean and tidy if a little tired. Some of the wiring of appliances in the room was a bit dodgy, especially if you had young children with you. The food was always good and...

Stayed here for 3 nights during the monsoon season. This hotel is about 3.5 hours’ drive from Kuala Lumpur. Unless there are floods, then it can take up to or longer than 7 hours. Staff were very friendly and helpful though not very careful in following through to ensure that requests were executed. We (4 adults and two youngsters) stayed...

I visited this resort when it newly opened and its special because it was the place me and my wife starting courting. After 18++ year we decided to visit this resort again to rekindle our memories and our annual family holiday trip. Our stay was approximately 03 days and two nights. The rooms haven't changed much as I recall but...

A good hotel with all the basic facilities for a short business trip. Rooms are clean and located next to a golf course. The lounge by the beach is a quaint spot for an evening drink with the serenity of the waves.

It's pretty bad to see such huge resort with a nice beach but the quality is dropping. The room is old and need to refurbish totality. Some area especially at Level 1 (Club Floor) looks creepy. Mosquitoes in room too. The breakfast spread is average and nothing fancy about it. The beach looks beautiful and there are few rubbish here...

I was totally amazed with the hospitality of the staffs. From the concierge, receptions, housekeeping, maintenance, security guards, Not once I've seen them not smiling. My only thoughts were the management must have treated them well. The WiFi facilities were fairly new. Still got some hiccups but good enough for me to browse. Thumbs up for the swimming pool.

Location is remote and peaceful . Hotel has enough entertainment to keep you and your family regardless of age entertained and occupied. The sea wave is but rough especially during monsoon season, so swimming in the sea is not advisable. The room is old but still properly maintained. The spa is bit expensive but is nice and worth it.
