We stayed here for 4 nights in March and had a nice relaxing time. The cab from the airport was only about 15 minutes & the cabs are a standard fare of 20 ringitt. We arrived quite late on our first night and the hotel staff were not at all friendly - we also had to carry our luggage to the 3rd floor as there is no lift so not a great start. We wanted to go for a drink on our first night but it was about 10.30pm & there was nowhere to go other than cactus bar over the road which was quite dead (we saw this on other nights & it was really busy so we must have just been too late)- we later spoke to a cab driver who said every in Cenang & Tengah shuts down by midnight.
This resort is in a quiet location but only a 5 minute cab journey (6-8 ringitt) to the main strip of restaurants and bars. The beach is amazing - lovely white sand & the pool is nice - although a bit disappointed to see there used to be a pool bar that was no not used.
We stayed in a deluxe room which had great air conditioning. The room was big but quite dated with lots of dark brown wood but the bed was lovely - huge & really comfy. There was free wifi in the reception which you could pick up around the pool if you were in the right area. There was also free beach towel hire & they provided water in the rooms each day.
We had breakfast included and it was quite nice, toast & cereals & pastries and then a few hot options including an egg station.
There is a shop over the road which is handy & it does scooter hire which we did - very cheap only 45 ringitt for 24 hours - we drove to the cable car which was a nice journey. the cable car is at the oriental village which is a nice change of scenery but nothing special.
Places to go:
Boat Restaurant over the road - cheap Asian food good for lunch
Beach Garden Resort in Cenang - one of my favourite places - lovely cocktails on the beach.
Brasserie Bar in Cenang - 2-4-1 cocktails 4pm-6pm - definitely do this it's so cheap 18 ringitt for 2 cocktails on the beach -lovely setting.
Baan Thai restaurant - really nice food right next to Brasserie.
Oasis bar on the beach - lovely beach setting again.
Orkid Ria in Cenang - very popular seafood restaurant
I would stay here again - especially for the price.
