Impiana Resort Cherating Reviews
Worn out resort with excellent sea view and customer service Oct 07, 2012
This resort is located near the village named Kampung Cherating. About 4 hours drive from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
This 4 star resort has a huge lobby and waiting area. The breakfast restaurant located at the same lever. We love the ambience as it sets by the lotus pond.
There are only 2 reception desks, so I could imagine how busy they would get during the peak season. The staff was friendly and informative with lots of smiles! I could totally feel the Malaysian Hospitality!
Traditional Malays houses design is the soul of the resort. All rooms are in a building with concrete stands, so it is a little higher then those ordinary hotel rooms that set on the ground floor. There is no ground floor in the hotel complex. Our room was located on the first floor or second floor according to American standard.
The room was a little small. As we were 2 female friends, we opted for a twin bedroom. The 2 single beds were comfortable but I saw a little stain on my bed sheet. I called the housekeeping department to have my bed sheet changed. They did it while we were out. This made me happy.
I have never seen such a small TV in a hotel room - the width of 2 IPADs! I do love the day bed and balcony with excellent sea view though.
The bathroom was not that big too, it only equipped with walk in shower without a bathtub, however, they are generous with the amenities. We had 2 complementary bottles of water in the room and also the coffee and tea making facility.
This resort provides free Wi - Fi service with good connection. One more point added to the review!
We went to the pub with our rebate coupon on soft drink/ beer. The waitress was stingy with her smile but the singers in the pub were generous with the smiles!
On the second morning, I dropped my contact lens case into the sinkhole and it got stuck in between. I told them to fix it before I came back from breakfast as I would need to use the sink after breakfast. Guess what? My contact lens case was retrieved from the sinkhole after I have done with my breakfast!
The buffet breakfast was not attractive and I think they really have to improve on their coffee.
As this resort has been there for decades, so it was pretty run-down. Some of the wood at the platform and walk way that connect rooms to the lobby was broken. The bathroom door was worn out with the aged stains.
Overall, this is a worn out resort that need refurbishment jobs. It was the excellent customer service and the stunning sea view room that made me comes back to this resort.
