Stayed here for 5 days on early this month (Nov'12) for a conference held by company. Overall the resort looks very nice, serene and calm atmosphere. I stayed in Fairway Pines I building whereas adjacent to a pool with a nice water tower and a small lake and golf course on the other side. Seems there's a lot we can do in this resort; golf, trekking, cycling, etc. I had meetings all day so can't comment much on these activities.

The check-in process was swift and smooth. Receptionist desk is efficient. I got concierge guarding my car in the lobby while I checked in. I was given a room with twin bed (2 single beds). I wished I could have one big bed to sleep (King/Queen size). One small thing missed by receptionist is to ask me whether I want to have single bed or twin. However, after 28 hours flight and jet lag, all I want to do is sleep. So couldn't bother to ask for another room.

I was also placed in room 4139 in fairway pines building, which is a bit far from building lobby and the actual restaurant where we could have breakfast. I always have to take car to the lobby just to have breakfast. This is my first stay here so I don't really know which area best to choose from.

The room itself is comfy, bed and pillow is OK excepts is twin beds. Room got big LCD screen which is good, TV channels selections are OK. Bathroom is average and amenities could be improved. There's only 2 bars of soap and 1 bottle of shower gels plus a set of cotton buds and cotton balls, which is useless. A bit surprise for me as I expect to have brush+tooth paste, lotions, shampoo, and shaver. Alas, I take a shower just with the soap.

The restaurant/room service is not 24hr, at least what I got from guest information booklets at the working desk inside the room. With the jet lag, I was woken up 2am in the morning, hungry, with nothing in the room but tea/coffee. Also I arrive at the weekends, and surprisingly they don't do laundry at this time (laundry services starts on Monday). Which is inconvenient.

The restaurant for the breakfast serve same menu everyday which made me boring. Also there's no halal menu available. A bit difficult for Muslim guests and left us basically with smaller menu selections. The omelet section also only have pork meat and no beef meat.

I haven't checked out the Spa facility but by looking at the price available at my room, it is just too much expensive compared to south east asian standard.

The meeting room was nice with fast WIFI connections. The snacks provided for the breaks are also of wide selections and good quality. The only things I wish the hotel could improve would be the chairs. They're old and cranky, and rather difficult to adjust. It squeaking whenever you move your body even a slight.

Overall, I would say the resort is nice place to stay for the meeting and business conference. The company paid for my stay this time and generally it is a pleasant stay. But if you're on your own, I would recommend to get another place with better value for money.

Room Tip: For future business/meeting visits, I would recommend anyone to stay as close as you can to the meeting place, which most likely will be in the main building/lobby. Your choice could be in guest house (GH rooms), or in Aspen rooms or in Hickory rooms. Download the premise map in the hotel website to give you the idea. Also ask the room which is closest to the building main entrance, regardless which area you're staying.

I went there for a family function, a wedding to be exact. The property is massive and many rooms are out of the way to the main building and had to rely on calling for a golf cart transport which was not always readily available. The room I had resembled a Econo Lodge type of dwelling. No amenities to speak of. There was a nice pool area but too cold to use when I was there at the end of October. The catering facility for the reception was okay as was the food. Nothing extraordinary, but not bad. I took the hotel shuttle from the airport and was severely injured when the driver shoved me in the step( too much detail for this review) . They had a security person treat my injured leg and management sent me a cheese platter to make it better?Nice gesture but they should have referred me to a physician. The hotel overall was average at every level.

The place is really nice and there seems to be a lot to do. We didn't spend much time here though.

The rooms, on the other hand, need some work. They just seem really dated. I would expect the rooms to be similar to a typical 2 or 3 star hotel. It was surprisingly unimpressive.

There are some really good photo-opportunities on the lake as well. Many types of birds and ducks... I even remember turtles as well.

Room Tip: If you're in a high foot traffic area then try to get on the second floor. Otherwise, you cannot open your shades.

We were pleasantly surprised at the serene setting of this resort. My husband had class all day every day, but our daughter and I enjoyed laying by the pool, pampering at the spa, and the close-by shopping. It is definitely an upper-scale community, so be prepared for the expense. The restaurants and bar were definitely enjoyable also, with the only possiblenegative being not refilling your drink with meals quickly enough (but since we were with a large group, that could've been the problem). Our room was very clean and the housekeeping staff was accomodating to our schedule. Although I have no idea what the cost was (company paid), it is definitely a place that I would love to visit again.

Room Tip: Choosing a good room depends on what you want to be close to - many of them are a good walk to the main lobby, so ask when you reserve.

Spent a week at the Woodland for a conference.

In relation to the shared facilities such as the restaurant I am full of praise. The food at both breakfast and dinner was fresh and tasty, served by obliging staff. The grounds are lovely and well manicured. The reception staff, although efficient were business like to the point of brusque. The shuttle to the airport and mall were handy and efficient.

I stayed in the Aspen lodge which appears to be an older part of the Resort. It was close to all the facilities but showing its age a bit. The room was large and clean. It had lots of natural light and a small balcony. Bed and linen was comfortable. The bathrooom is a good size and well supplied with towels and supplies. Some of the furnishings (worn chairs and faded wall hangings) were showing their age and were due for a refit. The room was obviously used by smokers as it had a supplied ashtray and matches. I am an non smoker and noted the smokers tinge throughout the room for the entire stay.

In summary, a great conference venue with good accommodation.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room.
