Theme park, hotel & spa integrated into one. I was quite excited to visit as I love theme parks & roller coasters. My boyfriend & mother were excited as they looked forward to the spa. But we were rather disappointed. I'll explain why:
1. We stocked up on cakes at Secret Recipe hoping that it would do for a great snack/supper. But we realized there was no fridge after check-in! Ditto for our canned drinks.
2. Hotel staff were friendly enough, but since the hotel was in quite a secluded area, you'd have to wait 20-30 minutes for the taxi to arrive after you call for their taxi service. It's exasperating to book the hotel shuttle as there's no fixed schedule & they leave whenever a guest requests for it.
3. The hotel isn't situated beside the theme park. You'd have to cross a road, then cut through a ginormous car park before you reach the theme park. Why am I complaining? Because the cafe is there & you'd have to do a 10 minute walk just to get breakfast. Oh & the food tasted weird, probably due to being left out for so long.
4. Hot springs & spa are within the theme park. That means if you're tired & aching for a massage (literally), you'd have to trek to the theme park to get your massage. Or soak your weary legs. & you'd have to take note of the operational hours. Theme Park 10am-6pm. Hot Springs 6-11pm. Spa 3-11pm.
5. Finally, as I posted on my Facebook, "Theme park rides here are so scary! Not because of the speed at which they move, but the lack of maintenance." Enough said.
