My seaview was actually a bush-covered-with-zinc-plate view. Cleanliness, service, and facilities at its worst. (The toilet is dirty and smelly, dirty curtain, super dusty aircond, non-functioning safe-box, flickering TV channel, non-operating restaurant, a working excavator at the beach, the room was not ready and need to wait until 5pm). At night, it was super gloomy. I checked-out after only 4-hours of staying. Can't take it anymore to spend my night there.

The room is simple. Not really clean. Smelly. Don't confuse the villa and the chalet. There is no swimming pool. Breakfast was too simple. Nasi lemak with boiled egg that's all. Even though they said its only walking distance to the beach but the beach is about 500m from chalet. No Seaview available

Overall it’s a good and relax staycation. Nice building design with unique furniture. Quiet, peaceful environment, can wake up with the sound of waves. Staffs are mainly local Malay, very friendly and helpful. The foods and drink are standard hotel quality with local taste. As the guest capacity is not high so can expect that the food variety will be limited. The beach is still under maintenance, huge stones placed to block the strong wave. It’s very dangerous to swim by the beach. Besides of the sea view, nothing too much to expect of, facing east but hard to see sunrise probably because of the weather. Hygiene of bathroom to be improved, windows are better to keep closed to avoid insects. Overall, is still worth for a visit, to temporary stay away from bustling city life.
