The beach was not well kept, there was some garbage, and we couldn't swim in the sea due to plague of jellyfish. Breakfast at peak can be a disaster, long wait, noisy and hectic inside. Large variety of...

Great hotel, one of the best hotel experiences I have had in 50 years of travelling. Stayed in the Rasa wing in a premier room on the top floor. Yes this is a relatively expensive option but for a special occasion I do not think it can be beaten. Excellent staff in all aspects of the hotel, they were always...

Check in staff was professional enough and the rooms were okay. The balcony area was not clean. Bed and bath comfortable and good. However over breakfast, the staff did his best not to notice our call for attention and needed me to stand in front of him to ask for some coffee. It came quick enough with a slam on...

Excellent property with great staff!! The restaurant is good too with a mix of local and western food. The property faces the beach, which is a great view and a good place to relax. The location is close a series of restaurants outisde the property within a 1-2 kms radius. Overall a great stay with warm staff!

Although the beach was dilapidated by wave erosion, mgmt of the hotel have taken measures.to ensure safety of its guests with sufficient signage around the area. Just hope that this will be reconcilable suggesting that this...

I visited this hotel while on a business trip to Penang. It was a very friendly welcoming hotel with excellent facilities. The setting was stunning. A hotel transfer into Penang allowed an exploration of the fascinating city. Well worth the trip.
