I stayed overnight with some friends from China and they were really impressed with the hotel. They loved night swimming at the pool and they were even more ecstatic to be swimming at the beach!
The staff were simply excellent both in their work and in their attitude.

A little old but amazing resort
Reviewed 5 days ago

I was here for a seminar in this beautiful resort. Apart from the 'standard' Shangri-La hospitality, we also had a special 'amazing race' for team building activity arranged by the hotel.

Apart from that, two things make me remember this resort are
1. Wonderful breakfast spread
2. Beautiful sunrise from the infinity pool
