“"Resort" classification a joke”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2012

This so-called "resort" is anything but and badly in need of renovation. The "deluxe room" annotation for my "rustic" accommodation was a laugh, and I kept a sharp eye out for snakes while walking back and forth along a dimly-lit path to my "cabin." The hotel's restaurant is also pathetic, with lousy food and poor service.

Hotel design is nice with infinity pool view of the beach..
Beach is clean..

Very far location from Kuala Terengganu..
If you have own transport it would be good for mobility if not; then thats it!
Nothing much to do at the hotel..

The room is very small..
Dated decor / materials..

Food is nightmare..

The location of this resort is too far from nearest town. But good for honeymoon couples. Besides, breakfast serves with limited choices. I'll never go again

My recent stay at Sutra with my wife and son from 21 - 25 December 2011 were marred by a break-in incident in our room on the 23rd (early morning). The intruder break through the side window closed to the area where the airconditioned compressor are located. We loss all our cash, camera, iphone, garmin and watches in that early morning strive as we were sound asleep. We were there participating in the endurance event in Terangganu International Endurance Park. A police report was lodge and the promises of compensation has gone to the silent attitude of the hotel management and it insurance company. With agony and pain, we've no choice but to proceed with legal claims against the hotel for failing to provide proper security to the hotel guests.

My second visit after a long break. My first visit gave me and my wife a very lasting impression. We liked the room by the seaside. Listening to the sound of waves pounding the beach non-stop during our bedtime was something of a big change for a city dweller like us. But this visit revealed the state of neglect of this small but nicely designed resort, especially one of the star attraction - the pool. The water was dirty.

Room Tip: Sea side rooms are recommended
