Full accommodation information

Taking its architectural cue from 17th Century Malay palaces, this 100-room resort is steeped in age-old Malay traditions and is a member of small luxury hotels of the world.
Each of the rooms is traditionally designed utilising local timber and rich fabrics. All offer exquisite views either across the gardens or out to sea, and some come complete with an outdoor bath.
There are two restaurants in the resort that both offer tempting cuisines. Di Atas Sungei has a ‘no menu concept’, and guests are guided by the Menu Masters who are experts in local cuisine and can create a personalised meal. Nearby, the Nelayan has a seaside setting and a selection of sustainably-caught seafood dishes.
Around the resort guests can relax around the beautiful free-form swimming pool or indulge in a treatment at the award-winning Spa Village. Enjoy traditional Malay therapies designed to leave guests feeling rejuvenated and relaxed
