    This property is beautiful. It took a over an hour to get a spa me it sent to the room which was a little frustrating and the shower stall is very small...standing in the middle I looked up to the water to rinse my face and banged my head on a corner of the wall behind me. Very weird placement and extremely painful so keep mind of the space. They give slippers which was a great bonus and the ambiance of the room was delightful. The breakfast had so many choices! As Chinese New Year is approaching the hotel is decorated beautifully!!!! I would highly recommend making sure you can view sunset if possible, it’s gorgeous. So other than the very hurt head it was a great experience. I stayed at the le meridian other day and I like this property a lot better. It’s a bit further out from the main city, but not bad.

    A great place with younger children

    It’s a really nice hotel for families with younger children. The pools, the food and the facilities are great. The only disappointment we had was the beach, actually the sea. The beach had the red flag and was closed all nights we stayed due to the stingy jellyfish. I hope the hotel could bring in more efforts to protect and clean its lagoon.

    Excellent services & comfortable

    The only feedback I have is that there should be washroom near the beach or the rainforest tent where we had our private lunch.
