“Simple but a good place to stay”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Its a clean simple hotel. Got Wifi at the lobby but not in the rooms. Have a small pool and an area to play beach volley and sports. There is a bar and shop near walking distance to the hotel. It is relaxing to take a walk along the sea side during the evening. The area is not near the town. Very quiet environment.

The hotel was still under construction (at least parts of it) when we stayed here. We stayed for two weeks and were out most of the day. It is in Marina Island, off Lumut. Quite far from the nearest city, Sitiawan, or even Lumut town center. But that was okay since it is designed to be a resort. However, it could have been better if they have a shuttle readily available to take their guests to the city. There was almost none. In the few occasions where we chanced upon their van, they charge a hefty sum. There was almost no taxi coming into Marina Island since it is out of the way for the locals. There was once when I badly needed to get some Ringgits and some supplies that I had to walk kilometers until I found a taxi at the intersection to the town center and Manjung/Sitiawan. I was all sweaty and uncomfortable that I had to go back to the hotel as soon as I got me some money and supplies. I had blisters after that.

The rooms we had were very spacious as we booked suites. Our room had three rooms, a balcony, another small space where we hang wet clothes. Swimming pool closes way too early for a night swim.

Breakfast was not bad but lack variety. Same stuff for two weeks!

Staff were not the friendliest I've met.

Only good if you have a car.

I enjoyed this hotel very much. I'm used to staying in very upmarket places but had little choice where I stayed on this occasion. To my surprise, I really enjoyed this hotel. It is very simple and not very well finished on the fixtures and fittings but it is very spacious and very comfortable. I slept very well here and that is so important to me.
The staff are friendly but not really aware that they work in a hotel or they have so little to do that they are just not used to looking busy and showing interest in their work. The restaurant on the ground floor was "interesting". The service was OK and the food good enough. The "interesting" part is the food delivery. Every dish served on our table was served to all the individuals at different times. People were eating alone whilst others had nothing. The gap between delivery could be ten minutes er dish. The worst part was that the restaurant was pretty much empty apart from us and they still couldn't serve us all together.......we were only four people. It was actually even worse when we were just two having lunch in the empty restaurant.

Big spacious apartment. All rooms have attached bathrooms. Quiet environment, nice swimming pool for kids.The new jetty is just a stone's throw from the hotel. The only problem was dusty floor. I called for room service and they responded immediately.

The hotel is quite isolated from Lumut town & if you have car, it's just great to drive around the countryside & to nearby Sitiawan town. Otherwise, not much activities to do except hopping to Pangkor Island via the Marina Island Jetty opposite the hotel. Shoplots around the hotel area are still new & unoccupied. There's another new extension under construction going on nearby thus causing cement dust outside the apartment corridors. Don't expect much on food because hotel buffet breakfast is very simple. For lunch/dinner, need to go hunting around Lumut or Sitiawan town. The 1 bedroom suite style we stayed is huge & can cater for more than 3 pax. It consist of 1 queen size bed in the hall & 1 super single bed inside a bedroom. Bathtub looks old & its rain shower water pressure + temperature not up to expectation. Wifi connection is weak. Overall it's just an average place. Photos looks nicer than reality.

The BW is probably the best place to stay if you need a stopover while waiting for the next Pangkor Laut Resort boat. The Marina Island Jetty is a 5-min walk (with luggage). The 1 bedroom apartment is great and everything is clean. Thank you!

Reviewed 28 June 2013

the location is perfect. but the room concepts is a bit weird. maybe it meant for family vacations and the studio accommodations concept serve the purpose. food is good and well served though its not much of choice given.should the room was designed as normal hotels room perhaps the stay will be much better. nice location but can only give them 3 star rating....

Room Tip: higher floor and should face the jetty.
