The resort is 1 hour from the airport and is located on the beach at Batu Feringhi, once you have settled into the hotel there is no reason to leave as every thing is on site, at nightime the sidewalk just outside of the hotel are set up as night markets which were pleasant to walk through and there was no shortage of eating places local and international. We noticed in the hotel that activities for kids was well set up as well as adults. A really nice hotel with good water sport and beach access.

The hotel location is great. There is a night market right outside the hotel. THe hotel service and staffs are great. However, the breakfast have no surprise and the cafe area is packed. This is a kids family restaurant with lots of facilities for children. We went as a couple and not as great for us as the swimming pool is pack with children and no room for swimming. The beach is great and offer lots of water sports. i will recommend if you are traveling with children. But if you want a peaceful relaxing weekend with less kids, i will definitely not pick this hotel.
