We are here twice while staying at the resort. The first time we turned up without a reservation and were told all outdoor tables were fully booked. There were four empty tables at the time. Fair enough as we hadn't booked. We decided to have a drink at the bar there anyway. While we were having the drink one of the occupied tables became free and we were offered it. By the time we'd finished dinner and were last to leave, the four 'reserved' tables were still empty. It seemed silly that we'd initially been turned away when none of the four bookings showed up. I suggest they improve the reservation system perhaps by calling guests to reconfirm, or only holding the table for 15 minutes then releasing it.
We were disappointed that the menu didn't have any Asian items. We had tuna and red snapper. Both were cooked nicely. Prices on the high side - RM 50 for an appetiser and about RM 160 for the fish which we shared. Nice prosecco chilled perfectly and served in chilled glasses. RM 230 a bottle.
We returned the following evening for the special South China Sea set dinner which is served on a platform on the sand. Rm 650 for 2 people for 5 courses. The set up was lovely but we were attacked by tons of flying ants which were attracted by the strong lighting which could not be switched off, and had to be moved. The staff reacted well and set up a normal table on the sand with candles. The dinner was ok. We didn't love it and would have preferred to have a few choices for each course. The portions were too big given the number of courses and we were unfortunately too full to appreciate the main course.
It was my birthday and the staff added lots of lovely personal touches which was appreciated. Marlon looked after us very well as did his colleague in the bar.
