Though their service levels are not good, the location more than makes up for this. Imagine a room in such a hotel not having a "bottle opener". I asked for it on the 1st evening, I could not get this during my stay.
Rooms are ok-dokie, much like any 3* hotel. The rooms are not very Modern, yet very well laid out with all amenities to have a relaxing rest. Most rooms are beach front & this is very scenic which ever way you look at it.
Their Pasta, Pizza & Indian breads were top notch. However, the Indian breakfast menu on the buffet was a huge disappointment. None of the dishes were remotely close to the originals we eat in Singapore or Malaysia. This was a let down since its an Indian Hotel.
Could see some racism on a couple of occasions. Hotel should understand that if some one could afford this hotel, they can pretty much afford a competition on the main Island as well.
I liked the Gym, Cycling & the small library. Private Beach with a swimming pool near by is a pleasure. We got to see a Comodo Dragon as well, creature was free roaming. :)
1. Carry mosquito repellents like body lotions etc.
2. Satellite TV is very grainy & Wifi is not strong in the rooms.
3. Your night life is more or less over by 6pm as the last boat from Lakasuka jetty on the main Island to Rebak is around 7pm. After that you will need to pay 200MYR to hire a private boat.
