The place is quite unusual, as it faces one busy street in Queensbay Mall. But once you are in the island, it makes you get closer to nature. The staff are friendly and accomodating.
Our room was upgraded to a chalet and the room was beautiful. We had problems with the light in the toilet, but when I called the front desk, the electrician came to check it out. The one thing that I only didn't like is that the only available shows to watch are local channels, mostly in Bahasa Malaysia or Chinese, which for me is not really tourist friendly. If the channels have english ones or even a cable, then we don't mind staying in the hotel room mostly for the day. There was spider or some insect also, but this are understood since you are in a jungle. But I had a nice restful sleep, which is not ordinary if we are on a hotel.
There is not much choice n the breakfast buffett and it takes time for the eggs to be cooked since there is only 1 cook doing it. The BBQ dinner also didn't meet our expectation as only 1 kind of fish, chicken, lamb, hotdog are in the menu, together with the chicken and beef satay. Nothing much really.
After our activity (we did the suspension bridge and the flying fox), we walked behind the restaurant and the area where they put the trash is unkept, so I'd say better avoid that area.
It would have been a marvelous resort if the place is kept and the beach is made clean. I'd love to come back only if they have more to offer.
