It's another good place to rest and relax from a busy town. The environment is great, nice view at the pool and beach area. The reception service crew is nice, friendly and helpful.... but the security at the entrance looks a bit grumpy, bad days kot... Anyway... it's a great place for a short holiday break.

MUST go Teppan 潮风 Shio Kaze to eat. The foods there is very NICE! Best japanese food i had before. Especially the Salmon. The top skilled chef named Epy is very friendly, will invite us to sit in front top table to experience him performe, preparing our foods like nothing that we seen before. Even will chat with us, sharing tips and help us take photos. The way he cook the foods is really till whole new level. Must try it out! Overall the staff there is very friendly, environment is clean and hotel room is within effortable price too with outdoor bathtub. Quick relaxing getaway just one hour drive from jb.
