The resort is not up-to-date. The room decor is very gaudy. The walls are painted light pink, whereas the carpets had a turquoise-ish background with light yellow sea shells. The furnitures are old. No free wifi provided! The room service menu is in dire need of improvement. There is a shampoo/soap dispenser in the toilet that is not functional. If...

In this era of technology I'm surprised that there are still hotels / resorts not providing complimentary wifi for guests staying here. Overall design is pretty old... No upgrades. Cleanliness is within tolerance level.

Got lower ground room near the hotel spa. It has balcony but the view is blocked by the fence. The room is spacious and clean. Only that the water is stagnant during shower. Overall I'm satisfied with the room condition and hotel area.

Booked this place through booking.com as a last minute plan for the Malaysia National Day weekend, for about rm700 for a 3D-2N stay with breakfast. Upon arrival, our big bikes were given priority parking in front of the lobby. First impression of the reception/lobby was quite good. A fountain in the centre of the hall at the top or the...

Stayed a night for business. The only hotel in Kijal or near Kemasik area. Got my room from Agoda as when I called the hotel for rate, they quoted me MYR 50.00 extra. I paid MYR 363.00 via Agoda for a deluxe double but was given a twin room instead upon check-in. Not a big deal as I was travelling...
