Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very good service. Staffs are well educated. Only one problem is foods are too much expensive. We have to judge the price including the servicing by staff, but I think it is still too expensive.

Disliked: Staff & service
Rooms, Amenities were excellent. However staff attentiveness and service were below par. Buggy service and butler service was really disappointing. Wanted to organize a private dinner with family and friends, however the staff was not accommodative at all. Overall good property and amnesties, staff need to be retrained.

Not worth the priced charged
Their frontliner is trying but for the price that is charged I’m expecting the hotel to be excellent and not mediocre. The most unpleasant about the stay is the double standard of the higher management treatment to guests. Am I just not worthy enough that the gm is not bothered about my complain that he doesn’t wanna meet us as the staff claimed he’s busy but I saw him sending off all the famous second and third generation of the rich of Malaysians that’s visiting??’ Do note your other patrons are equally as important and should be treated EQUALLY! Other problem with the hotels which I wanted to highlight to the management : 1) My room is not ready on the day I checked in until 5.30 pm! 2) The bathtub is literally black and stained like it’s not wash. 3) the fruit provided in my room is rotten! 4) breakfast is slow but the staff keeps coming back to asked us what else they can get for us... all we need is our food! 5) requested to checked out and have our afternoon tea earlier than 1 pm but the buggy did not arrive until it’s 1 still and we are not being informed. 6) booked a massage and we din go but nobody actually call for reminder or to check out 7) took a kettle chip but the staff did not notice upon checking and we have to inform them instead The hotel and environment is so beautiful and serene but such a waste with the operation and management now. The management really need to step up!

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Perfect
Beautiful place with great architecture. Unique suite design. Love the attentive service. Lots to do. There are two swimming pools, long stretch of beach, plenty of greens, bamboo bicycles, tennis, golf etc. Only small comment is that I was hoping the pool had opened earlier as I like taking a morning swim. Also if they had smaller sizes bikes, as it was too big for my petite wife. Otherwise, a great place to relax.
