We had a mixed feeling during our visit to Balinghai Beach Resort. We stayed here for 3 nights from 3rd March till 5th March 2012 in the Bat House.
Although the resort seems to be private, there wasn't much privacy at the resort's beach - the beach is too small to accommodate the guests of the hotel.
Rooms are private and the views from the rooms are splendid! But there's some sort of discomfort in the rooms - for ventilation, there are only vintage fans.
Booking was a difficult - they only accepted wire transfers, which in our view, is among the most uncomfortable way of booking a place. The resort does not have a tie-up with any booking website, and their own website booking page was dysfunctional (at the time of our booking a couple of months back).
Going from the resort to the main road is not so comfortable. Also, the food choices for vegetarians is near zero. Milkshakes are nice though.
Looking at the reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked this place for our honeymoon - we had some great moments, but were not entirely convinced of the great reviews given by the others staying here.
