“Very, very basic room”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stayed 4D3N in the Family Room which could not be considered as a hotel as it only provided the very, very basic furniture - beds, a very simple and dated wooden desk with 1 chair; so only 1 person could sit while the others had to either stand or sit on beds (bearing in mind that whenever you returned to the room you would always be in wet swim suits). Heated shower and toilet in the same cubicle with soap dispenser and a couple of hooks for hanging, no rack for placing shampoo and other stuff. Washing basin was outside toilet with no mirror, not even a paper or plastic cup for rinsing mouth, we ended up using a water bottle for rinsing during our stay as the little store outside didn't sell any cups for that purpose. No housekeeping service. Could replenish towels or toilet paper at Reception or Housekeeping Counter outside.

Staff was pleasant, helpful and courteous, mostly youngsters as majority of guests at the Resort were in the younger generation.

Food selection was not ample but quality was quite good in comparison with other resorts on the Island and it provided 4 meals a day (breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner).

Resort location was convenient for diving - with House Reef in close proximity and other coral spots nearby (about 5 - 10 mins. boat ride) though the visibility was not excellent for our last dive.

We considered the cost of our stay was expensive for such primitive room facilities.

I stayed at the dorm for 6D5N this May 2014. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The only flaw is the wireless connection only available at the reception counter.

Overall still a joyful trip.

KEEP IT UP

We had booked some other resort and got down at the wrong side of the island, but the staff, location and the package made us cancel the earlier booking and stay here. One of our friend is vegetarian, upon request they made special vegetarian dish for him in buffet. I was really delighted with their personal touch for this deed. Kudos to them

It is suitable for budget travel for friends and family. The staff here are very attentive and helpful, and enthusiastic! Food provided is nice and suitable, even though there aren't much choices. Rooms are clean and comfortable, well equipped with water heater. The surrounding is quite relaxing and peaceful and it feels good! Especially at night. Suitable for those who seek for a peace of soul. Overall the price is reasonable with their services provided!

Went here for company trip. Room just ok. Food just average. Service quite bad. But there are 2 or 3 staff here quite friendly :). Actually I don't really bother with the room since most of the time we spent outside the resort. 3 trips snorkeling,volleyball at the late afternoon, naah..trust me you won't bother so much about how pretty the room is,how comfort you in the room etc haha. In this trip,my company took the fullboard package that provided by the resort. But personally I think if i come here again, I will not take the fullboard package since there are so many cheap & affordable restaurants along the beach in redang but...I think I will not come here again I guess hahaha ;p

I traveled with 13 people and booked 3 rooms. The price for 3 Days, 2 night was just ok comparatively with the food and snorkeling package however what i disagree was they still request us to pay for the "snorkeling mask and life jacket" which cost RM15 each. Each person they actually requested for extra RM30 on top of the rates. So, the price actually not inclusive for EVERYTHING (however ferry transfer, food, sharing accommodation and 3 times snorkeling are inclusive).

Food was just ok, nothing to fancy about.
Rooms were just average, no security, no tv, no refrigerator, no shoe rack.
Snorkeling was BAD! 1st trip - deep sea. nothing to shout about. all coral are dead! no color, fishes are there though. 2nd trip - Marine Park. The place is quite nice...so i'm ok with this.
3rd trip - Still deep sea ( same place as the 1st trip). It falls on Saturday and 4 big boat travel together. thousand of people..no fishes (fishes were scared because too many people jump at the same place) and people were out of control. No fun at all.

Redang itself is nice....definitely i wont choose this place again :)

Room Tip: Find other hotel for your memorable holiday trip - Laguna and Corus Beach resort seems nice!

Just came back from a diving holiday in Redang Island. Took the 3d/2n dive package at Redang Bay which includes 5 dives, ferry transfer, full board and accommodation. They have rooms for 2, 3 and 4 pax complete with in room shower as well as dormitory accommodation with 2 double decker beds per room. Restrooms and shower facilities are outside. The rooms are clean and spacious. The dorm is ok and very convenient for divers as they are above the dive shop. They have friendly staff and well run dive center. The resort provides full board but there are also small shops and cafe on the beach if you want something different or outside the meal times. The house reef is excellent.
