As mentioned by all, the place is very unique and unlike any other property I have ever been to. They have this rustic feeling to their rooms. It is set in a secluded area from the main touristy stretch of the beach area, surrounded by trees and it made me felt like as if I was staying in those old Malay Kampungs. I love the the place. Very quiet and peaceful.
Our room was more than enough for the 2 of us. I think it could have fitted a family of 4! Room was very spacious and comfortably set up like your own home. We had a good swim in the pool overlooking the sunset.
What I am not really keen is..
There were cats everywhere. I already know beforehand and agree that they are doing a good deed in providing shelter to these cats when making the booking but still, I prefer to see them from afar and not have them come near me. There are quite a number of them roaming around everywhere but the cats are quite tamed so I am still okay with it.
Another thing is the toilet. They have no water hose. My companion seems to be okay with the idea but as I am brought up as an Asian, I find it quite difficult for me to accept. The walls are also quite thin. I could hear the couple next to us having their breakfast early in the morning. I couldn't exactly hear what they are talking about clearly, but still, it is quite frustrating.
Also for the amount paid, breakfast was 4 slices of bread, yoghurt, and 2 bottle of juices. My suggestion is, perhaps they could have provided a simple set of breakfast with eggs, sausages and toast instead?
Otherwise, I am perfectly happy with my stay here. The room was great and their service is perfect. Very friendly and professional.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Though classified as B&B/Inn, Temple Tree is actually more of a boutique resort of many cultures, an eclectic mix of heritage chic...Antique buildings of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Eurasian origin, make up this 8 villa hotel, with 8 rooms & 6 suites now open. Each building has, over its 70-110 year old history, created its own heart and soul. Hopefully we have given due respect to each of these family homes with the restoration process. These houses are now the continuing the story of people who live in them, our guests. ... more less
