This hotel used to be a PULAI hotel and the owner changed recently. We used to say in PULAI hotel so we were kind of expected to enjoy a different experience there. However, the room we checked in room #439 had no heater so even if there is a bath tub on the balcony, we could not enjoy at all....

Beautifully renovated rooms, with very comfortable bed, toilet facilities and something special by having a bathtub placed in the room balcony. The room is bright with many lighting points but there is no centrally located switches to control the room lights, need to walk around the room to turn on/off lights. The room is equipped with new digital LED TV...
