Great property - great people
Amazing property with some fantastic people and overall very good service. The engaged and present management team does a great job helping people grow, where necessary. Both restaurants are good, delivering on service, food and ambience. Personally I would like to see Hoshi deliver “a bit more”, move from good to outstanding, also to match the price tag. Looking forward to seeing the development over time.

Had a memorable 3D2N stay with my family in One&Only. The room is well equipped with everything you would need for a perfect staycation; a spacious bathroom, bath bomb for a relaxing soaking, tea in a variety choices and Nespresso coffee machine. Balcony with a long couch is a plus for family chilling session. A short walking to the private beach where you could enjoy the sunrise. The Resort Manager, Mr Rahman is attentive and graceful in accepting feedback. Definitely will come back for another stay.

Overall a great stay and experience.
The resort is nice but the food at the hotel is overpriced for example a plate of chicken rice will cost you about RM115. Overall the experience is nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful. In addition, the sports club facilities ie tennis and other varieties of sports are excellent. But during this monsoon period ie in December, there’s nothing much you can do at the beach. So try to avoid this period if you can.

This happens to be the 4th One&Only resort that I’ve stayed at; therefore there are certain expectations are required to be met. This is an excellent 5 Star Resort without any doubt but hasn’t quite succeeded in living up to the One&Only brand, unfortunately. Parking my vehicle was not an issue but lugging my baggage up a flight of stairs from the carpark to the lobby without any help was not very pleasant. I was only brought to my villa for check-in after I waiting in the lobby from 3.15pm to 4.15pm. Even then, I had to make a fuss before one of the staff attended to me. I was flabbergasted that coffee and tea was served without a sugar bowl or a milk jug during breakfast. I had to remind a member of the staff and by the time the milk and sugar arrived, I was about to finish my breakfast. Great attention to detail when it comes to amenities and presentation and I wouldn’t expect any less from The One&Only must say that all the staff are very well mannered, polite and helpful
