Peaceful Stay

Singapore, Singapore

We stayed 4 nights and it was good, albeit with some issues. The check in was efficient and the staff were friendly. They were helpful with requests and watched out for the guests. Activities wise, one could always lounge in the pool, swim in the sea right outside the resort (or easily walk to different spots for snorkelling), snorkelling, cycling around the island and purely just to chill and relax. However, we encountered some small issues during our stay. In the first room we stayed in, the water pressure had some issues, most likely due to the piping. After trying to fix it, they suggested that we change our room. So we managed to get one of the pool facing rooms. That was great until we realised that the air con wasn’t operating well, which caused some difficulty sleeping. The room was also situated right at the back of the kitchen and the smell from the exhaust made me a little sick. There was also a constant feeling of dust on the floors, so even I who usually don’t prefer bedroom slippers had to put them on. The staff facilitated our requests efficiently for transportation, sight seeing etc. Even though the prices were slightly marked up from other vendors, you can be assured that it would be well arranged. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the quiet island where one could really let go and enjoy. Limited food options on the entire island, the food served from the villa’s kitchen was actually very good (though obviously pricier than next door’s restaurants).

Perfect, nice hotel!


Great location, right on the beach with enough beds and a very good restaurant on the beach where they serve delicious food. Nice, big rooms around the pools with an outdoor shower. The staff was very friendly and helpful and a good service. You can book a private speedboattransfer to Gili T. or to Lombok what is very comfortable. They offer free bikes (with big tires - good for the sand) and kayaks. You can snorkling direct from the beach. The sunset is incredible and takes your breath away. There is a good diver center near the hotel. For sure will come back to this hotel for a very relax stay.
