While I found this place very peaceful n serene ie away from the tourist scene, I felt the expected 'Malaysian' hospitality was missing. Breakfast wasn't very exciting ie 1 boiled egg , toast n cereal! I was hoping for malaysian nasi lemak or even something more like a continental brekky.
Our rooms weren't cleaned regularly - didn't like having sanitary stuff sitting in a bucket in the bathroom . Yes we could have put it in the outside bin, however given that we had left australia to come to Malaysia for a break from domesticity , I didn't feel looked after as a guest, which I expect when I pay good money.
Although the houses were quaint n retained a malaysian feel, it wasn't very practical
For our baby who although had a mozzie net, was fully bitten all over As mozzies made their way through the floorboards!!
The pool was slightly small for a place that could accommodate up to 20 odd ppl. At times it felt like I was intruding on other ppls conversations because of how tight the pool area was .
Overall tho, a serene n picturesque place with a few missing hospitality bits!!!
