We stayed here over Xmas for the first leg of our honeymoon. The rooms were immaculately clean, and I do agree with some other reviews that they are a little worn in places but you cannot fault them. We had one of the Bayu Senja rooms which I think are a little larger, but the open plan with the option to close doors etc was lovely - basically a bath tub in the middle of the room was a luxurious touch.
The staff could not do enough to help - probably the best I think I have experienced in a long long while, the food was some of the best I've ever had.
We did leave feedback when we left of how they could improve and what was great and they have since written to us to update us on what our comments have helped to make the experiences even better for people still to go there. They are re-furbishing the rooms, they are only a little worn at the moment but will be very special when they do. The adults pool only was difficult for them to keep children away but I understand they are now putting clearer signs up in all languages, don't use the hotel phones - too expensive - we were quoted wrong but a simple mistake and they did resolve this ammicably.
The resort was just lovely on the whole, quiet (even though it was full when we went there), you could always find a sunbed at either pool, the live music playing whilst we ate was just gorgeous - loved the Rhu and ate there mostly. Breakfast was just brilliant every day. Just make sure you book early in the day which restaurant you want to eat in that night - we found this a little restrictive and not flexible but I guess they do have to plan - the only thing I would change through as we couldn't eat where we wanted to on 2 nights.
Our experiences for a honeymoon were as we expected. We've travelled to many places on our honeymoon trip, some we'd recommend, other not, but on this one, thumbs up to the Tanjung Rhu - would highly recommend it to anyone! Enjoy. Oh and go to the spa - I've never had an experience like it - amazing!
