        The staff were friendly and the seafood was good.

        The breakfast buffet wasn't extensive with basic spreads. The pastry was not fresh. I has the beef rendang for dinner and it wasn't fresh. There was limited toiletries say compared to Shangrila tanjong aru! Access to gadgets in the room wasn't obvious and TV channel limited.

        Absolutely spectacular. Extremently warm hearted staff, excellent private beach, various free activities organized by the resort, brand new facilities, amazing breakfast and dinner, super spacious intimid rooms and great natural neighbourhood. Cant be better.

        The costs of the speedboat kinda shocked us when we checked out. I thought it should be offered by the resort free of charge. Paid RMB140 for each person just for a 15 mins speedboat ride from the shore to the island. New resort, still construction sites around, a little noisy in the daytime.

        Excellent Hotel. But the service needs to impove. Also, it is too expensive for what it offers and its beach is far from good.

        The service was not as expected for such a hotel. Also, the beach and sea are not good.
