Destination Specialist

"The beach at this hotel is simply stunning and the sea is crystal clear. You will see plenty of marine life straight off the beach and if you swim a bit further out you are likely to see turtles and rays."

Beautiful white sand beach and crystal clear water.

Subang Jaya, Malaysia

Excellent facilities with beautiful beach and clear waters. The accommodation was 5 star and all facilities within walking distance. The food were excellent and the well trained staff made our stay very welcoming. Snorkeling or diving is a must and you will be mesmerized by the beautiful coral and the fishes. Excellent effort by the resort to breed and release turtles into the sea. Unforgettable stay for a relaxing holiday.

White Sand Beach

Stayed here for 2 nights. The staff are very friendly. The check in was fast. The room was superb. The beach was fantastic, clean and not crowded. They also have a pool. We availed the turtle watching and it was very fun. Had a snorkeling in the beach is was nice because the wave was not that strong. The breakfast also was good. Overall our stay was good.
