Middle of the Teluk Nipah Bay, Excellance Location
Booked for the 2017 Chinese New Year (CNY) Holiday period. It is clean chalet. The resort are nestled in between other resorts which can have noises/ people voices especially in peak period like CNY. What included in the rental, air conditioning plus ceilling fan room, towels, soap. There is 14 inch box CRT television (very retro, you don't find CRT anymore). It is wooden floor, it is a semi-D design chalet, 2 rooms adjoining each other with different entrance. So beware it can be a bit squeaky when you are walking or neighbours are walking. There is verandah/ balcony with 2 chairs and table for smoking and reading. There is safe box which is basically a key locked drawer. Sufficient to store valuable while you are away basking the sun.
The shower has hot water and the room has 1 power outlet empty for your own use (phone charging etc). There is outside shower for you to clean up all the sands from you cloths prior entering the chalet.
Be mindful the policy is no food/ drinks allowed in the room. They provide a common area next to reception where there are plenty of tables and chairs. They provide cutlery and cups. Also water dispenser for hot and cold. The blanket is essentially a bedsheet, so you can adjust between aircond and ceiling fan. If you want a cold drinks and beers, there are selection for purchase by the reception counter. Reception open between 8am- 8pm. They also offering bicycle, motorcycle and car hire at the reception. Only asked about bicycle, RM10 per day quoted to me.
Foods and mini mart are available in the main road or some choices in front of the hotel for burgers stall and instant noodles in mini mart. If you want to change your bedsheets, just inform the receptionist. There is a common iron and ironing board next to receptionist if you need it. Also at the back of the chalet, there is a drying poles to hang your wet clothes or mostly people dry it on the balcony wall.
For activities, just head to the beach ( 5 minutes walk), plenty of touts/ tour operator offering the island hoping, jetski, snorkelling and even fishing.
All in all, it has been an enjoyful and comfortable stay. The location has to be the big points as it is in the middle of bustling Jalan Teluk Nipah. Value for money as I do not need the swimming pool, so you pay less!!! save it for the boat ride and jetski. Friendly owner and staffs. Noise level acceptable and sleep well.
