Perfect place to stay,if you want to completely relax and get away from it all. Superb restaurant too; varied menu and very reasonable prices. We especially loved the troupe of Dusky Leaf monkeys who used to sit outside our window,every morning. Amazing snorkelling too! And we loved the staff!

Well I contacted the person in charge in FB saying that the room ranging from RM 100 to 150, and the price was different due to the distance from the beach to the chalet. All the rooms were newly renovated and come with 2 queen-size beds, attached bathroom and air conditional. That's why we picked the room of RM100 because our group would not mind the walking distance but the room condition. However, when we reached there, the room wasn't as expected as in the photo shown. Instead, it was pretty old and one of the bathroom wasn't attached. We were pretty disappointing with this because we felt cheated. We were thinking if there is any mistake in management, they mistakenly treated us as another smaller group, with different request from what I have made. Anyhow, the staff were pretty pleasant and patient. Bread was also available all-day-long. It is good solely for the price.

The room itself its ok. Charming chalets, have to be honest... it's not that comfy but worth for the price. I recommend!
You can often see a monkey's family crossing your way or on the top of the trees :)
Beach is truly beautiful! Friendly and helpful staff!

Watercolours Resort is truly unforgettable. Never have I stayed in such a place, and probably never will again.

The dank rooms will truly tickle your senses. The romantic lighting sets the mood, illuminating the room like a single burning candle (but truly, the room looks best in the dark). Then there's that haunting scent. I thought at first it was the smell of unwashed linen but it turned out to be the mattress and pillows, and its scent will linger on to you and your clothes (I should know cos I put my baby's blankie on it).

The loo will give you a workout as you pump and pump to get flushing (it works but it needs some effort). After you work up a sweat flushing the loo, rejuvenate yourself with that icy cold shower!

Best of all is the housekeeping. They are practically invisible and your garbage just lounges nonchantly in the corner. Of course, when you're travelling with a baby, one just can't keep soiled diapers in the room for long without the risk of death by toxic asphyxiation.

We, and the room next to us that also had several young children, had no choice but to neatly tie up our garbage and leave it outside the rooms, by the garden. They keep the garden very tidy by the way, there's someone sweeping the leaves daily. Our garbage bags though, were mysteriously untouched.

An added highlight is the breathtaking shallow graveyard of a beach the resort has. The beach is filled with lovely dead coral, both in and out of the water, eager for you to step on them and wince in pain.

Ahhhh, the masochist in me was delighted by the experience! If hygiene is not a big deal to you, then you have found paradise.

On a more serious note, the saving grace was its dive center. The dive masters were informative and friendly, and we were happy with the diving/ snorkelling spots we were taken to.

We were travelling with a group of friends that brought their respective families. We had taken the full board package which includes food and drink, which was plentiful and decent enough. The staff were also quite friendly.

I've read that it's supposedly the same living condition throughout the island. If so, then you might as well go budget. But to be honest, we passed by other resorts and they didn't look as shabby so maybe this story is to convince you to give this place a shot.

Room Tip: don't stay here.
