We were among the first guests staying at the resort for the soft opening and were given an especially warm welcome by the enthusiastic and beaming team on arrival at the hotel. For the entire stay , we received great hospitality from each and every single member of the staff.I would rate the service here as PERFECT .
Breakfast is not the usual buffet style but offered as a variety of set menu : western set, spanish setetc. Quite a interesting concept
We had dinner at the Yue restaurant serving Chinese cuisine which has a lovely setting and very attentive staff.
Although spoken English was lacking at both restaurants, staff made up for it by their great effort for trying their level best
We also had a most awesome birthday surprise planned by Ms Bonnie Zhang,the Begonia Club Service manager, and meticulously executed by the staff. We had a blast of a time, thanks to the great display of fireworks! WOW
We stayed in a luxuriously furnished ocean view suite which was very spacious and was definitely most impressed .
The hotel is located in Haitang bay, right next to its sister property Sheraton Haitang which provide free shuttle to the Yalong bay area. The hotel also has a fleet of car for hire at very reasonable rates.
The resort ground is huge with at least 5 pools . We took strolls along the beach in the evening just by the hotel.
We would most certainly hope to be back once again.
