“A little tropical island in the middle of the steppe”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

First thing you notice when you arrive , is the main entrance lobby with a sort of airport chek inn
with metal detectors and x ray scans , it is forbidden to take with you any sort of food or drinks ,so they check all your belongings to avoid not allowed items ( little bit disturbing because in case you have a kid with special tastes you can't bring in anything) .
Inside the resort transportation is provided by a n.of electric golf karts that brings you to the main pool where are located the changing rooms with lockers .
One main restaurant serving also pizza baked in the wood burning oven , all around fake coco palms with real birds nesting between the branches , pool very large and overall good location to spend a full day with family and kids,only bad thing was the tiles around the pool very slippery and there is a high risk of serious inguries.

“Lets wait another 3-5 years”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

Great initiative but still in its infancy. Water park type area is beautiful but in mid August despite soaring temperature the water was at a mere 21c. They claim it is the largest pool in Central Aisa, it is big indeed. There is a spring water pool at 15c. Kids were coming out of the main pool shaking. Then the tiles around the pool are hyper slippery when wet (hmmh who would expect them to be wet near a pool). A gentleman next to me fell and broke his arm just in front of us. Then they have "cottages" for you to stay but they are actually containers cleverly set up as hotel rooms. Restaurant was good (local cuisine) but they also have Korean. Everything is new and a bit soulless) it will probably be great in 3 to 5 years. So lets stay positive and wait.

“Couple of days”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

Nice idea. Nice surroundings. We stayed when it was low-season, that for get a low rate (150 USD per small house with its own garden). Small electric cars are driving around the place and work as taxi (free of charge). Good cuisine, 24h. Could not test anything else than restaurant or walking around - as it was quite cold. Recommended. Couples, families.

“Summer time place”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

Newly opened resort with lots of activities at one place. A huge area: fishing ponds, nice and cute cottages, rental of bikes, bicycles, special equipment.
Most visited place are 2 big swimming polls and one pool for children. A great place both for family and friends compaign. On week days it's much cheaper to go, however, weekends are fun.
