Stayed in the seaview deluxe room which boasted of a beautiful beach overlooking view. I requested in advance to have the topmost level, and staff was so nice to grant my request. The hotel is right at the Pantai Cenang area, just a stone throw away to the beach, shops, mall, etc. Breakfast was basic and nice and they have lovely staff to cook you some eggs in the way you want it. Staff at reception are always helpful. Room is cleaned daily and basic toiletries are provided. It was a great stay, would love to repeat!
