We were greeted the moment we set foot in the resort by a really kind lady.  She sat us down at the cafe inside the resort, gave us a form to fill in and even served us tea.  She was extremely kind and helpful, I felt really welcomed.

There is only three to four floors, however there was even a small luft which was so convenient.  I loved the lift, it had Egyptians’ hieroglyphics printed on, it was really cool but I don’t know if this was the theme as no other part of the hotel looked or feel Egyptians.

The room I dare to say was perfect.  I like the simple interior with wooden bed frame, wooden coffee table, wooden chair, then white walls and white duvet covers.  There picture windows and a glass door lets in all the natural light which makes the room so cozy and fresh.  The room isn’t big at all, after a double bed in the middle, enough space for a side table, chair and a coffee table.  TV is mounted on the wall, and there are wardrobes on the side where the kettle and fridge is also located at.
It is the little thing that makes us love this room so much, there were complimentary fruits on the coffee table and everything in the minibar is complimentary too!  I loved their snacks and the free juices.  They have a machine for dripping coffee which is supposed to speed up the process (dripping coffee takes FOREVER),
One thing i must mention is the speakers, they have the Bose speakers which they even gave you the instructions on how to use it.  The speakers can be connected with bluetooth, so bring your iPad and iPhone.  The best thing is, there are speakers in the bathroom, surround sound in the bathroom while you bathe.  It was wonderful!

A nice hot bath

The bathroom was just as big as the bedroom itself, with lots of room.  I loved the bathtub itself, it was so big you can fit around 4 adults.  It was so relaxing as you can stream music through bluetooth and the speakers are in the bathroom.  As the bath tub was so big, it takes time to fill up, around 30 minutes and the hot spring water is boiling.

I was too tired to get up for breakfast, and the lady who helped us check in was worried about me.  So she actually got the kitchen to make me fresh food and packed them into a box for me. So kind.  She was definitely an angel, so thoughtful and kind.  I would come back just for her.  Other members of staff were always smiling and helpful.

I wasn’t too sure when I was booking this hotel as the photos I found online did not do any justice to it.  The hotel was more than beautiful, it was modern, spotless and so cozy.  Everything was well planned out, shows the host are very attentive and thoughtful.  From the moment I step n I was greeted with smiles.  I was really touched when the girl even packed my breakfast for me when i didn’t turn up for breakfast.  they were sweetest people.  Best of all, I had a great night sleep after a nice soothing hot spring time.  Love it!

Would I go back again? Yes, definitely
