We had attended a family wedding in KL so eleven of us spent a week in the Magellan section (resort). We all had rooms on the top floor (6th) overlooking the pool & the sea. The room was gigantic with a small balcony. The staff are extremely friendly & courteous but some could do with a bit more training. Breakfast...

This was my second stay at this hotel. The view just seems to get better! Of the two hotels the Magellan is the one to stay at; it has more character and an airy and open feel. The rooms are well appointed and the bed is super comfortable. A buffet breakfast was part of the package. Be sure to try...

We have stayed both in the Pacific Sutra hotel and the Magellan Sutra. Both were good and beautiful, but there were small things that creates occasional annoyance. We stayed in the Pacific Sutra around 2 years ago. The room was beautiful and had a nice view of the swimming pool with a hint of the ocean, which was perfect enough....

We stayed overnight on Christmas day and enjoyed festivities. Breakfast buffet is excellent with wide variety of menu. We especially liked chapati and little cakes. It's a little far from the city center but there is regular shuttle service to the central area. Spa menu is good including traditional body massage and Balinese oil massage but treatment was a little...

I stayed at the Magellan Sutera part of this establishment as part of a 3 generation family group In January 2015. We had beach view rooms which were beautifully appointed with separate bath and shower. There was the usual sumptuous breakfast with eggs and omelettes to order. There are several restaurants within the complex which is enormous. Most of the...

It is an OK hotel, compatible with the price range. The staff is really helpful and friendly. Good selection of food for breakfast and comfortable bed.

Stayed here for two nights for just a short getaway and it was lovely! Spent the whole day enjoying the hotel facilities with breathtaking view. My son enjoyed swimming in both The pacific sutra and Megellan Sutera pool. We had lunch at the poolside restaurant and the service was very slow. We also ordered room service and surprisingly the service...

Booked a family vacation at the Magellan Sutera, what a great decision that was. The hotels (three in the Sutera group) share facilities in an area surrounding some small private beaches, a marina and a golf complex. The hotels are welcoming and very efficiently run by some of the most welcoming staff I have had the fortune to meet. Rooms...
