                        Individual guest reviews

                        • Family with children
                          9.6

                          The staff and service were fantastic, very helpful and courteous. I left my sunglasses at breakfast and after one call to the main desk, my glasses were returned to my room within 10 minutes. We had booked the Superior rainforest room, but were upgraded to a garden view room instead which was much nicer. Airport transfers arranged were efficient and comfortable, with cold towel and water waiting for us.

                        • Family with children
                          7.4

                          Pongo Kid's Club was convenient for leaving kids to entertain themselves and be looked after if you need a break. Room was bigger than expected and came with a sitting area with a sofa. Interesting fact - if the sliding door to the balcony is open, the aircon doesn't work. The resort was okay but I've stayed at better Shangri-la Resorts in the Philippines (check out Shangri-la Resort Mactan in Cebu and Shangri-la Resort in Boracay).

                          Plenty of insects/mosquitoes near the beach. My husband got tons of bites. We came at rainy season and when it rains hard in the afternoons, the beach area gets flooded. They need to drain it with hoses. Also resort is quite a distance from KK and it gets traffic, especially when it rains. Took us more than 1 hour to get to airport.

                          The resort is in a beautiful setting, lush tropical gardens overlooking a great expanse of clear, unpopulated sand (no hawkers) and finally opening out onto the South China Sea. There is an orang-utan conservation centre on site where you can pay ca. US$15 to see 2 young ones being fed and watch them play on their ropes (you are kept well back on a roped off platform). This is both convenient and cheaper than some other rip-off tourist packages I saw advertised during my stay in Borneo, however I suspect not quite the same as trekking through the rainforest to visit them in the wild. N.B. They ask you to book this experience 72 hrs in advance, but they kindly made an exception in our case as we were due to leave the next day.

                          We had an ocean wing room with a bath on the terrace overlooking the sea and the sunset. It was a gorgeous setting, but I have experienced many similar in Thailand at about 1/5 of the price. The difference being that they bring you a selection of assorted chocolates and offer to pump the scent of frangipane into your room on a daily basis, so if that's your cup of tea this is for you. Sadly there was no space for us to sit by the pool - other guests left towels out on all the vacant ones and the staff were not doing anything to prevent this practice. The hotel arranged taxi to the airport costs US$30 for a 30 min journey, and in our case they actually tried to charge us a whopping US$80 for a private car because they misunderstood my horror

                          The adjoining orangatan sanctuary was a highlight. The kids loved the water sports on offer and the swimming pool was great, with at least three lifeguards on duty at all times which was a real peace of mind. Hotel was spacious, clean and plenty of food choices. Rooms were great - clean and spacious.

                          Was obviously a busy period for the hotel but the food and drink orders were very slow to come through. Basically just needed more staff.

                          Luxurious, wonderful, big rooms, long beach.

                          Always a lot of jellyfish in the sea - swimming was not possible. Restaurant-prices very high. No reduction for single travellers, had to pay for two, which was really expensive.

                          Peacefull resort with a wide beach. Rooms are nice, but are starting to look a bit old, did not bother us though. Breakfast buffet was expectionally good. The resort also has a orang utan reserve, where guest can go to see them. This is a great experience. They also have a canopy walkway, which is nice (70 ringit for both of these activities combined).

                          The dining options are limited to resort restaurants; a japanese (160 ringit/person), indian (from 50 ringit+) and to coast-restaurant, which is more expensive but recommend.

                          Very relaxing atmosphere. Great service. First time going to resort to completely chill out and this was the ideal place.

                          would have liked more vegetarian protein choices at restaurants but managed ok and chef was willing to cook me something not on the menu when I asked.

                          Extremely attentive, friendly and efficient staff across the board, lots of interests to pursue,location excellent very relaxing resort and food excellent.

                          Does help to Hire a car,even though there is Hotel Transport into the local town. Albeit the swimming pool is going to be refurbished it needs to be done quickly as a little grubby, but ample room for adults and children.

                          Lovely hotel. Every detail is considered. The staff are great, the rooms are lovely with incredible views and the pool and beach areas are very comfortable. The best bit by far though is the Orangutan Reserve, which is superb. I don't think there is anywhere on Borneo where you can get as close to the animals. Also the walk up to the viewing platform isn't which was a huge relief because it was very very hot.

                          It lacked atmosphere in the evenings but I think that was just because it wasn't that busy. It is also expensive considering how relatively cheap the rest of Malaysia is. You pay for the name, but seeing the orangutans made it worth it.

                          The nature reserve was above expectations. We had a couple of issues - service related - during our stay, but the management team went out of their way to rectify things. The Indian resataurant, and the Lounge restaurant were both very good.

                          Distance from the city could be an issue, if you were using this hotel as your base for KK. We had stayed in a city centre hotel before here, so we were fine with this.

                          The staff was very friendly and accomodating. I wish we had more time to take advantage of all the resort had to offer.
