Frequently Asked Questions
The Resort: What is the tide schedule like?
The tide comes in and out about every 6 hours or so, while the exact timing depends on time of the year. During low tide the waters retreat back by a few hundred metres allowing guests to walk out onto the seabed.
The Resort: Do all rooms have seaview?
We are happy to say that guests can enjoy a seaview from every room’s balcony. The best seaviews are from the Royal & Jacuzzi Ocean Suite balconies which open up to the ocean while the Deluxe room balconies have a side seaview and overlook the resort. Do note that during low tide, the sea retreats back a few hundred metres.
The Resort: What activities are there?
For complimentary activities, we have a Foosball table, a Pool table, free Karoake, a seafront swimming pool, a large outdoor Jacuzzi, and a small beach to laze on. Outdoor movie screenings also happen every night at our outdoor dining area.
Aside from these, an array of sea activities such as kelong visit, kayaking, snorkeling, mangrove tours etc can be conveniently booked at the resort itself. Kindly check the activities page for more information.
