5 Star Resort
1 of the best resort I have been stay with my family. The beach not smelly as I went to the others. The downturn is if you stay at the hill side, you will need to walk more than 500 meter to the restaurant. But the staff very very helfpful, friendly and passionate. Salute!!

Very helpful staff and nice hut
Each group of visitor is assigned an accommodation ambassador. S/he will take care every aspect of your stay, I'd say excellent service. The hill side hut is 2 stories each with balcony facing the beach - actually just 20 stairsteps from the sea.

Patrick from Australia
One-Bedroom Hill Side Beach Villa
Stayed 4 nights in July 2016
The good: Great view, very spacious and comfortable chalet, nice beach and water temp. The bad: Wifi was off for duration of trip (4 nights), food options basic and limited at restaurant, groups of tourists on private beach were loud and made napping difficult. The ugly: Literally the slowest service I have ever experienced at the restaurant, hotel staff have no idea what they are doing (hammering and building work being done in chalets next to occupied rooms at 3-4pm waking guests up), and the price (for what you are getting) was atrocious. Resorts of better quality in other holiday destinations around Malaysia would be approx 60-75% of the price.

Quiet Paradise
Nice little getaway from KK. It is a shame about the rubbish in the water and on the beach. The staff were all lovely and helpful. The island is very quiet of an evening once the tourists leave. We were the only ones dining in the restaurant on our last night. We stayed for 3 nights but I think 2 nights would suffice.

Great accommodation
Lovely massive room up the hill, with fantastic view of the beach and ocean. They had considered everything in the accommodation, and the staff were all wonderful. The restaurant though was very disappointing. Like Faulty Towers. A buffet breakfast without coffee or made-to-order eggs on the first morning was a surprise. As was the unplugged toasters and warmers, and no power board in sight. A peanut butter sandwich was the only option for the vegetarian. And a bar-tender who doesn't drink alcohol is a rarity, but then to recommend the coco-loco cocktail (cocktail in a coconut) to me, only to be told by wait staff that there were no fresh coconuts on the island so no coconut cocktail......The little beach 'fast-food' cafe that is not run by the resort was selling coconuts.....

Everything's nice
Hillside villa is just next to the beach, which is nice. Easily accessible to any kinds of water sport. The breakfast is also good. The set dinner that needed to be booked in advance is great! Only one thing: be careful of jellyfish on the beach.
