Pulau Tioman, Malaysia1 contribution1 helpful vote
Loved this hotel until the politic GM Gulab Mahatam Rai and new committee owner John Ooi (self proclaim Director as I heard) joined the hotel. They both played politics by having evil plans on the old staff and have zero interest in service of the hotel at all. I , as one, has experienced the evilness from them both. I saw with my own eyes, how traumatized the staff were in the presence of these 2 fellas. In May 2020, all the hotel old staff were retrenched by the order of this Gulab GM which he finally reigned in his evil plans (without a cent of compensation to the old staff). This place is now badly managed, room was tired, carpet was torn and never replaced and can see cement, .. more like a cheap hostel for covid patients than a hotel. And yes, they are a quarantine hotel. They are in need of a new hotel management and a professional set of Directors (comprises of hotel room owners) and a professional and trustworthy GM who does not have personal interest.

I used to book this hotel whenever I am in the North due to their spacious room and my kids loved the beach. I had my honeymoon in this hotel close to 20 years ago. I called the staff to book and was told that he has been retrenched and not able to book for me. It is such a waste as all the old staff were very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. I called up the hotel and was told that they have closed for good and not able to take my booking. No mentioned that they have turned into a quarantine centre. I was then in Penang last month and stayed their neighbour instead. I soon saw that Rainbow Paradise Beach Resort has been turned into a Covid-19 Quarantine Centre. If i would have known, I will not stay next door and will book a hotel further from this quarantine centre. So, I will not be staying in this hotel again for a long time due to the stigma.

I used to be a frequent visitor of this hotel and liked eating at the hotel restaurant. This resort is built in a way that it lets the sea breeze blows that through the lobby. The hotel restaurant is also located behind the lobby and facing the beach, this allows for an amazing dining experience with a view. This makes the lobby and resort restaurant a cooling place to relax. As usual, hotel food can be a little pricey however the price can be overlooked due to its good portion and high quality. The rooms are clean and spacious, try to get a balcony that faces the sea and it will be perfect. This hotel also is located opposite a famous restaurant Ananda Bahwan. This allows guests to have an extra option for breakfast nearby. The only problem that I had before was my room card suddenly malfunctioning which stranded me outisde my room. But the staff were very helpful and gave me a new key. Overall, my experience with this hotel is great, it had great food, clean and spacious rooms, and an amazing view. It is even located near local restraunts.

Firstly, the hotel should put more parking space as a lot of guests for the dinner. The ballroom not bad and the atmosphere also not bad. The food are satisfied as there were a lot of choices and really enjoy the good service from the staff.
