Anniversary getaway ”

This place is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is strictly private, only hotel guest can use its amenities and there are only 16 villas . Everyone knows your name and the hotel manager Zachary and Belle were the best host I’ve ever met in Malaysia. They always made sure special attention to details were given. Including amazing turn down service. The rooms were huge, private and well maintained. It has an amazing rustic charm yet still luxurious. My only regret was not getting the sea facing villas as they were fully booked, but my jungle luxe sarang was amazing in its own way, complete with an outdoor jacuzzi. Will definitely visit again .

Wonderful location and excellent staff”

Positives: I had a lovely few days here with my boyfriend. The staff really make this resort. A big thank you to Mike and Azida. They are really lovely and nothing is a problem. Delicious breakfast and the food in general is really good. Love the concept of the rooms built into the trees in keeping with nature and loads of wildlife. Constructive feedback: We both felt that the resort is overdue a renovation. It felt tired. Very worn wood in most places, wooden planks and nails lifting on boardwalks, jetty and welcome area needs a big tidy up - new thatching on roofs, painting and re-sealing all wood. Sea front wall is crumbling - I believe this is about to be fixed up. Contractors were starting this as we left. Likewise the rooms are comfortable but balconies and wood etc could do with a tidy up, replacement blinds & general spruce up. This is not to take away from the staff/lovely service, nor the fact we had a great time. But the price/quality ratio may disappoint some travellers.
