Sadly only a short visit but a fabulous place to stay. The apartment can not be faulted..it's perfect with wonderful views over the sea.
The staff are very helpful and pleasant offering a shuttle bus service between the main resort and the apartment..but easy enough to stroll along the beautiful white sandy beach between the two.
Rasa Ria resort is a great place to visit and see the Orang Utan rehabilitation centre......an unforgettable experience.
Would love to return someday

“Fantastic place to stay for couples looking for a quiet / romantic getaway!”

My husband and I booked this apartment for our too-short honeymoon (only five days), and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Malaysia.

Booking and paying for our stay at the apartment was very easy, and we did it completely via email & PayPal, well in advance of our trip. The owner was very accommodating of our travel plans (we had to adjust our dates due to flight availability). She was also very helpful with up-front information about the locale and what we could expect. This information is also available on a print-out in the apartment living room.

The apartment is a good way out of town, so expect to pay for transportation. If you rent a car, be sure to get one with a navigation system - there's a distinct lack of signboards! The plus to the location is that it is a lovely , quiet area, with very natural surroundings. The beach was beautiful white sand, mostly unmarred by trash or detritus from a surfeit of tourists. Ocean water was clear, shallow and warm, and we even saw the occasional fish in the surf.

The apartment itself is beautifully appointed and furnished. Located only a couple of minutes walk from the beach, the swimming pool, and the reception / Thai restaurant. Views from the windows and balcony were marvelous. We were very happy to have the use of the fridge for chilling supermarket-bought beer and juices. Good air-conditioning, a wonderful bed with loads of pillows and the jacuzzi bathtub were a lovely bonus!

The resort's Lanai restaurant offers an a-la-carte menu with good Thai food at decent local prices, but the alcohol costs a fortune and their weekend buffet dinner menu leaves a lot to be desired!). Breakfast was actually included when we checked in, which was a pleasant surprise, but don't expect too much if you go down to breakfast after 9:00am.

The only downside to this apartment is the poor quality of internet access. The apartment itself does not offer internet access, and guests need to walk to the reception (4 minute walk) in order to access the wifi. However, the reception wifi was very limited - too many resort guests trying to use it all at once - and the network actually crashed completely for the last two days of our stay (making check-out a very tedious process!).

Despite that, we'd definitely choose to stay there again if we're ever in the area.

Yes, the wifi is unstable at the villa residence, but ok at the Horizon lobby/bar and the internet cafe at the main resort.

Glad you had a relaxing time, please come back again for your second honeymoon.

“Close to nature, Excellent Room”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The room is filled with just what you need for a relaxing get away. A jacuzzi tub, a steamroom bath shower, an island kitchen, a balcony with seaview, a comfy bed and waking up in the sound of sea wave, it's a paradise.

Apartment is very clean and fully equipped. Value for money.

I had a wonderful stay with my spouse. Will come back again~

“Gorgeous beachfront villa”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This place was amazing. I have no complaints about it. The interior of the villa is so beautiful. Very clean, full kitchen, full bathroom with shower AND huge bathtub. The villa is right on the beach and right in front of the pool that has a swim-up bar. Perfect location. It is just a short taxi ride away from the shops to get groceries to bring back and keep at the villa in the large fridge. The beach is very secluded and private and goes on for miles. White sandy beach and the water is warm and inviting.

The owners of the villa were amazing as well. They went out of their way to make our stay more comfortable and made the whole booking process go smoothly. I would definitely go back to this place especially now, knowing how kind and wonderful the owners are that we rented the villa from. If you enjoy luxury living on a private beach in your own little heaven in the jungle, this is the place you want to stay.
