  • Nice hotel on the beachfront, ample gardens and huge swimming pools, (one under maintenance during our stay, July 2016). Staff very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is set back from the main road and needs good signage to attract customers. It seems that some of the rooms (sea view) have been refurbished and are very large and comfortable, whilst others (mainland view) could do with an update as they are rather drab. Breakfast buffet was good but catered mainly for local tastes, however there was still ample for other tastes to get you off to a good start to the day. Tea, coffee, water, kettle, iron, tv, newspapers are available in each room as well as a good WiFi connection. Gardens are lovely but could do with a little TLC, loved the rabbit run and the pigeon loft which are situated behind the play park. All in all a great, reasonably priced place to stay whilst visiting Kuantan.

  • We held a big family and friends birthday party in the De Rhu Oriental Restaurant as a surprise for our mother's birthday. Both in the planning and on the day the restaurant manager and all his staff were tremendously helpful and welcoming. The food was just perfect for the occasion and we can recommend it without reservation. A perfect delight!.   We will sure return for another occasion.
