    Beautiful Property

    Beautiful property although a little far from town still worthwhile I suggest that you found all there as a family and that you enjoy all the resort has to offer a little little limited in the weather during July. A gorgeous big hotel, with the most fantastic pool for the kids. Spent 4 days here as part of our trip to Borneo. This was our breather in between more adventurous parts of the holiday! The kids had a fantastic time, as did we. The yoga was also glorious, in the most spectacular setting. Highly recommended. Ignore the negative reviews - some people will never be happy! The staff here were friendly and helpful.

    Stress Free

    Located close to the airport and the town but far enough to feel exclusive and secluded. The first thing that will hit you is the attention and care you receive from the staff. They are genuinely friendly and want to help, weather you are lost (easily done), need something or just returning to the bar. Joseph and Hillary in Joe’s bar and the sunset bar made us feel like we had been locals for years and the team in the lounge bar off the reception were so welcoming that you did not want to go at the end of the evening. Plenty of choices for food, places to drink; a selection of pools for all ages. We spent the last 4 days of our Malaysia tour at this resort and it was the ideal location to rest and recover from the trip. Rooms were good and had everything you need. Thanks for making us so welcome Had a lovely break at this hotel. Really enjoyed the morning Yoga with Chin every morning overlooking the sea. Excellent service from all the staff in the Club Lounge. Thank you for making our stay relaxing and stress free.
