    Very good

    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.

    Exclusive

    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.

    Very good

    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.

    Freundlichkeit, Eingehen auf Wünsche, Ruhe

    Sehr unterschiedlich qualifiziertes Personal Preis für Bootsüberfahrt

    Fabulous

    Super Zimmer - man könnte eher Palast dazu sagen. Riesen Badewanne. Toller Blick auf Jungle und etwas Meer. Das Personal war einfach nur Perfekt (super freundlich und immer zuvorkommend).

    Strand ist derzeit sehr klein. Es soll wohl eine Erweiterung geben,die aber erst im März 2013 fertig ist und dann mit Boot zu erreichen ist. Es gab während 4 Tagen Aufenthalt nur 1 mal Buffet zum Frühstück - ansonsten nur a la cart --> dies wahr wohl auf Grund der geringer Auslastung, entspricht aber nicht 5 Sterne. Abendessen wird spätestens nach einer Woche sehr langweilig, da die Karte doch eher begrenzt ist. Des Weiteren fanden wir die Preise für Malaysia deutlich zu teuer. (Bootsüberfahrt 70€ pro Person für Hin- Rückfahrt, beim Abendessen gibt es kein Gericht unter 25€ und für die Flasche Wein muss man über 30€ rechnen, Cocktails ca. 10€, Ausflüge (Tauchen, Landausflüge, usw) sowie Wellness waren für unsere Verhältnisse viel zu teuer.

    Superb

    整体环境相当好,背山面海,还有很多可以参加的活动,很舒适

    来回140rm的快艇费用偏高,而且餐饮没有什么选择并且价格高,山坡上的房子没有接送,略远,房间偏小,门口的靠垫很脏,check out时间偏早,房间电话信号太差打去前台都要跑到外面到处找信号
