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 island

We had 10 nights at this gorgeous resort . Absolutely loved the whole experience. Wonderful beach with sort white sand . Crystal clear sea that was warm. Are room was spotless and very comfortable . All the staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for you . In particular Supri Adi and Yudha wiradinata who made sure we had our drinks during the day and evening , and they were nice and cold . We would most definitely recommend this hotel . We will be back if I have anything to do with it .

Good for holiday with family

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This was my 3rd time here.As usual, this hotel never let me down. Stayed in the same type of room(Cliff Hill Deluxe), The hotel was well maintained and the beach is really nice and beautiful. As usual, my daughters really enjoyed the time here and we just stayed at the beach throughout the day .If you are looking for the quiet rest and relax, this is the place. The breakfast also have a lot of varieties, even though i missed the miso soup . But But there were a lot of other food to enjoy from asian to western taste. The setback was the buggy service, not like our first stay three years ago which service was excellent and prompt, we have to wait for half and hour for the buggy to come and collect our luggage during check out day. Might be due to lack of staff or the buggy itself. However, all the staff were trying their best to entertain us during our stay. My advise, if you are travelling with old folk or small children, better stay at the garden suite/deluxe or ocean view suites(near to everything-check in counter, cafe,beach and pool),so you dont have to rely on buggy service. otherwise you may try cliff view room which is nice and if you are lucky,you can see the monkey hanging on the tree and come to your balcony.Too bad, we dont have luck to meet with the monkey this year. However, as usual, already plan to again for another visit.It would be excellent if this hotel can provide non smoking area, as most of the traveller come with families including small children .
