Was looking forward to a peaceful holiday after reading the positive reviews of Sentosa Villa. However, was terribly disappointed due to the following reasons: 1. Bedsheets and pillows had stains on them. 2. Toilet drainhole was covered in hair. 3. Shampoo provided was half used. 4. The noise! Upon check in we noticed groups of guests hanging out at the common area; getting in and out of their rooms. Didn’t pay much attention to this until late evening where the laughing, loud conversations and loud foot steps persisted throughout the night! We were awaken every couple of hours by the noise - it seemed like they were up the whole night, as at 7am we could still hear the same noise! 5. Front desk is left unmanned after 10pm so there was no receptionist/ concierge to convey our distress on the noise disturbances. Horrible experience. Would not return. …
My stay here was pure accidental as there are a few choices in Taiping. And I can’t believe my eyes when I checked in at night. The night scenery with big trees and the nature feel was amazing. This is like a lost world to me. As this was a rush trip, I didn’t have a chance to dip myself into the natural pool filled by water from the stream. What a shame!! Overall it is a great place to stay if you love nature. Location wise it is very convenient as it is just next to Lake Garden and 5 minutes drive from the town. I had good WIFI for my virtual meeting as well. Thumbs up to the management for up-keeping this wonderful place.
Resort is located in the vicinity of the housing area. Filled with greeneries and a mini waterfall with waters from bukit larut. Clean and well maintained. Very happy with the cleanliness of the room and environment.
The hotel landscaping was beautiful and well taken care of. Hotel room was fine except flooring in the bathroom was too slippery, risky for elderly guests. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Parking facility for in house guest was good by manual control (gate bar) for all vehicles entering to parking area. Signage at roadside to hotel was clear.
We found Sentosa Villa by accident. First time in Taiping, we browsed through the net for interesting places to explore in this old town and found a blog on Sentosa Villa. We never thought of that next to a large residential area, there is a lovely, kampung style resort surrounded by nature. We toured the vicinity, not able to stay a night as we already made a booking somewhere else, this place is absolutely stunning with amazing landscape. We were told by their friendly staff that they offer different types of rooms/house (single, family, honeymoon suite etc) with prices ranging from RM180 – RM300 ++ only (please check its website for confirmation). Only 7 minutes from Taman Tasik Taiping. You will definitely enjoy its nature’s bliss. We did.
