Rooms & Suites

I like the new rooms.

Each of the room is tastefully decorated and furnished. The rooms are well well-equipped with modern amenities, spacious, and comfortable with a choice of twin or King-size beds.

If you prefer to travel with a group or with your family, there are 30 suites with a private balcony.
The Two-Bedroom Family Seaview units are designed to for families and groups. While the smaller One-Bedroom Family Seaview offers guests the greater flexibility of space.

I just love the spacious day beds by the balcony for lounging. You get to relax as you look out to the breathtaking sea view.

Fresh Ingredients for Local and Asian fare for New Dining Concept

I liked the modern and casual ambiance dining concept of the Cinnamon restaurant which lives up to its name.

The restaurant’s emphasis on fresh ingredients and the generous use of spices and herbs brings out the authentic flavors in local and Asian cuisines.

I’m sure you will like Cinnamon’s communal dining table which is perfect for large gatherings.

Upgraded Lounge for Entertainment or Relaxation

For relaxation, I enjoyed the airy environment of the Javana Lounge. The refreshed 80-seater lounge has overhead oversized, stylish fans to create the cooling breeze.

The sofa beds are great to recline on. There are delicious cocktails to sip as you chit-chat. It was very easy to doze off if you know what I mean.

For me, I enjoyed surfing the web at the spacious workstations. I find it a perfect time to enjoy a quiet coffee and a cookie here. We just have to “check in” the office. For me, I’m guilty as charged.

The stylish Javana Lounge features live entertainment with a good band in the evening. If you’re tired out from spending a whole day sightseeing in George Town. For me, this is the best spot in the resort to relax.
