This a beautiful place for a few days away from it all - not surprising that it's designed by an architect - the buildings, landscaping and pool are all beautifully laid out, and help to maintain privacy - even when there are more guests, it still feels so peaceful. The staff could not be more helpful - they were able...

Stayed for one night there... The place is great! We got the room that face the pool and the room is clean. There are a few things in the room that is probably a bit worn out.. but nevertheless the room is spacious and clean.. Staff are very polite and nice.. Food at the restaurant is very good as well.....

Nice welcome at the Aryani. Great room with outdoor bath. The pool was perfect for a swim and to relax. Nice oceanview. Food was amazing, service was perfect. Nothing bad to say about the Aryani, the staff was really friendly and helpful. Maybe one thing, some things need more maintenance, but I think the hotel is understaffed.

Extremely disappointing. We drove from Mersing to MARANG - no Aryani Hotel there. We rang hotel and were told no just another 80 kms to drive to MERANG!! ( the other side of Kuala Terengganu. Believe us it definitely wasn't worth it. PLEASE TAKE THIS HOTEL OUT FROM MARANG HOTELS. IT IS BOTH MISLEADING AND WRONG TO HAVE THIS LISTED...

Great rooms, great hotel, great food ... and so peaceful ! We will return there for sure. Bungalows are nicely decorated, balinese style. We took two connecting rooms as we are with 3 kids, everything was perfect ... And to be honnest, at 75 euros per room, including breakfast, this is a great value !

Stay for a night with my family. Pro: quiet, rustic with a typical Malay culture feel, good gardening that give you a village sensation. The room is very spacious, with super-king size bed whihc is very comfortable! There is even an outdoor bathtub if you like a breeze of natural or some starlight during bathing!

At first glance the hotel looked quiete OK at the lobby area but it was a bit astonishing that we had to wait nearly 20 minutes in the lobby to get our welcome drinks.

The setting and surroundings are beautiful, but the hotel has become terribly rundown. Welcome reception was alright I guess, got keropok lekor & jus halia (ginger juice). Rooms smelled damp and gross. Showers are rusty and looked extremely old. All the fountains and statues that in the hotel grounds were covered in what looked like black mold. Such a shame,...

The welcome reception is very good. The resort served us keropok lekor dan juice and so happened we are starved at that time after a long journey from KL.

“We took Chalet #13 as advised in one of the reviews and we were not disappointed. Chalet #13 faced the beach. The chalets facing the pool were also good. One of the riders and his wife stayed in the "main house" which was reputed to be 150 years old. They said it creaked a lot but provided for a unique experience. There was a modern block of 5-6 rooms. No one in our entourage complained about any of the accommodations as far as sleep quality was concerned.”
