This is a lovely resort, it is basic but the rooms are clean and have everything you could want. It is also situated directly on the beach, a feature they don't seem to take advantage of (see below). The staff are also very friendly and helpful. People tend to come here for a few days after touring around Borneo. Below I have reviewed a couple of aspects and included my thoughts on easy improvements that could be made:
The Beach - This really could do with a daily clean, just the area the hotel overlooks it would be so much more inviting. Clear the area to the side of the Cabana Restaurant (where volley ball nets are), lay this to lawn, plant a couple of tree's and put some sunbeds and sunshades up, this would vastly improve the area guests (Particularly European) have available to sunbathe. At the moment there are three broken down shades along a sand ledge at the front. It's clear the tide comes to far in to have sunbeds on the actual beach.
Cabana Bar & Restaurant - The bar is good and the happy hour excellent which encourages guests to stay on the premises and spend their money, however the restauarant menu needs improving. How about adding some authentic Malaysian Dishes like, Lhaksa, Rendang, Sayur Manus, chicken curry, noodle soups served traditinaly in a deep bowl. The Oxtail Assam Pedis is excellent, let's have more like this. A large part of visiting your country is to sample your great food, so don't be scared to offer it.
Overall we loved our stay and will definitely come again. A big thanks to all the great staff.
