Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
This resort feels like a five star property. It’s a peacefully get away to an old palm oil plantation. It seems like the perfect place to start an artist colony, a research center, or to write a book. It would definitely be a great place for a wedding, or a family reunion. It is very affordable, but has no WiFi, and the cell service is intermittent. Also, sadly you can’t access Tawau Hills Park from here, but is only 15 minutes from, only one of four, columnar basalt formations in the world. The staff is wonderful. They felt like family. I would definitely stay here again
