  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

1. Lots rubbish in the sea, at least to have net to block the rubbish flown in the resort area, can’t swim 2. The resort lack of flexibility, if you want to go to KK downtown that you have to pay the boat fees each way per person, either they have empty space for the scheduled free shuttle which reserved for check in/check out. If you are the first time to visit KK, it is not the choice to stay in this resort for your whole trip, you cannot to go to the downtown or site seeing without the pay

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

We loved our stay here! Great view from the room. Having a free nightly cocktail at the latitude bar was a pleasant surprise. The food was delicious. One thing to note is that there was no Wifi in our room - this was actually a blessing as we spent more time interacting or out doin other things.

  • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities

some fixtures and facilites need to be repaired after we move in. the cleanliness of bathtub and outdoor pool is poor. Follow up was ok upon request. Staff and front desk try their best to fulfill our request. Overall very sincere and friendly services. Not recommend to visit during moon tide season... the sea could be flowed with garbage and seaweed, low visibility for diving nor snorkel ... quite disappointed with rainy days
