Visited the hotel for a workshop with other colleagues. Very convenient pickup every hour from the airport behind the Intercontinental Hotel. Located in a lot of acres - its very expansive. Hotel is bungalows only and nice. The rooms are very spacious and I had a microwave and refrigerator in the room. I had read about kitchenettes so I asked about those but was told they are rented out on a long term basis. My only concern as a single lady in the hotel was security. The doors were very basic and wooden without any reassuring bolts or reinforcement. I couldn't sleep the first night until 3 am as I listened to night sounds and watched the 2 doors on each side of the room and both directly leading to the outside. The rooms also don't feel very close to each other so I was concerned. I got used to the layout over the week and my stay was largely uneventful. The breakfast was okay but unchanged every single day.
Hotel shuttle goes to the mall hourly as well. One can also take the shuttle to the airport and then get on the Emperors Hotel shuttle to the casino, movies etc - nice environment. Staff are excellent.
